It Was Worth the Wait


Mike McGowan


Stacy and Matthew


Relationships can be difficult. Relationships with someone in recovery can be challenging and wonderful at the same time. Stacy and Matthew met when Stacy was a couple of years into her recovery. They discuss their relationship and the importance of healthy communication, honesty, love, and trust. As Matthew says, “You can wait for a long time for a relationship that has all four of those components, but when you find it, it was worth the wait.” If you are in a relationship with someone with substance abuse issues you can learn more at https://al-anon.org.
