Sober and dating

Being a loving partner to a recovering addict requires sensitivity and discretion.

SKOUT has received $22 million in investment from Andreessen Horowitz and has been funded by early-stage investors including Janice Brandt, former vice chair of AOL; Jarl Mohn, founding president and CEO of Liberty Digital; and Hans Akerblom, founder and chair of Scandinavian Leadership AB.

In working with the spouses and significant others of addicts, I’ve often heard it said, “I’d rather be an addict than love one.” While few people would ever walk eyes-wide-open into a chronic disease like addiction, the statement speaks to the confusion, loneliness and despair common not only among addicts but also the men and women who love them. In fact, addicts who are solid in their recovery can make excellent partners.

Many recovering addicts have done things in the past that result in a criminal record, making it harder to get a job.
