Healthy vs. Unhealthy Relationships
Adapted from The Red Flag Campaign Campus Planning Guide From: Choose Respect Action Kit, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Healthy relationships (with friends, family members and intimate partners) can support recovery. Recognizing and identifying patterns in relationships which are unhealthy is often an important part of recovery.
People in healthy relationships respect each other. They can talk honestly and freely to each other and share power and control over decisions. They trust and support each other and respect each other’s independence. In contrast, an unhealthy relationship is unbalanced. One partner (a person in the relationship) tries to control the other.
