Partner Support

First, take a deep breath. You’ve arrived at a safe place and we understand your circumstances.

My name is Lisa, co-founder of Room to Heal and wife of a recovering sex addict. I’ve been in your shoes, so I know the relentless, physical heartache you’ve carried in your chest since the moment you first learned of your partner’s betrayal. I understand the unfairness of the situation that’s been forced upon you – a profound, all-encompassing sucker punch that came out of nowhere. It would be impossible to prepare yourself for something like this and yet … here you are. 


As with any other loss, you need the support and space to mourn and rebuild. Yet, many of us are forced to remain under the same roof with our partner, with no reprieve from the triggers and trauma of his actions. The towering expense of sending him away for treatment might be a financial impossibility but remaining in the same home with him is torture. 

 

We're here to help.

After my family was devastated by the revelation of my husband Andrew’s sexual addiction, we upended our lives and sent him to inpatient treatment halfway across the country for recovery and healing. During that time, he couldn’t work and I became a single mother supporting our family financially while his treatment sent us into $100,000 of debt. 


Looking back, it’s hard to believe that insane situation could ever be viewed as a blessing. But thanks to the gift of healthy space from my husband, my faith, great therapy, a strong community of women, I barely recognize the person I was before D day. His recovery led me to pursue my own and I found myself emerging as a stronger, deeper woman than I ever thought possible.  With my newfound confidence, I had the guts to set strong boundaries and the free will necessary to fall in love with the new man my husband became over time. 


I want to help more women to flourish.  That’s why I founded Room to Heal. I want the feeling I’m on a mission to help women step into their power, insist on real change from their husband and get room to breathe without having to make any immediate, major life decisions.


At Room to Heal, your emotional safety is just as important as his recovery, so he’ll be held to high accountability standards and we’ll work with you both to establish goals, boundaries and expectations for your time apart. You’ll also have our phone numbers and we’ll be happy to provide a weekly update on his progress. 


I know you’re stuck in what feels like a no-win situation. But because of Room to Heal, you  have an option within reach. Please don’t hesitate to reach out. I’d like to hear your story and help you determine if our recovery residence is a good option for your situation.


Sincerely,

Lisa Reichel
