First of all, I have to say congratulations on being at a point where not only you are ready for treatment but your partner as well, that is amazing! You are already past the biggest hurdle there is to a life clean and sober. I can see why it is important for you to ask this question, because it would not be a good thing for you to get treatment at a location that employs completely different tools and philosophies than the center where your significant other receives their treatment, in case they conflict. It would always be preferable to go through an identical program, but at the same time, it is not a good thing to be at the same center as your significant other since you will be battling your addiction and need to make sure you remove any chance of holding yourself back. What I mean is that, being in a group therapy, you may find yourself holding back because you love your significant other and therefore filter things as to not damage your relationship (rightfully so).
What I would suggest is you contact Journey Healing Centers, they have multiple centers in the USA that offer the same treatment philosophy and tools for healing. That way you can both experience the same treatment and support, while giving each other the ability to not hold back as you take on your healing full force. You will be able to stay in touch with one another throughout your treatment and since all of their centers offer Free Aftercare for Life, you will be able to strengthen one another for the rest of your lives as you attend meetings together and work your program after you have established your own solid base. You will have everything in common as far as tools for sobriety while assuring that your are giving each other the ability to heal you both deserve.

Best of luck!
