Faith-Based Addiction Treatment
Addiction treatment can be approached in different ways. Many of those who suffer from addiction can greatly benefit from faith-based approach to drug and alcohol treatment. It can be the key to long-term sobriety.
Millions of Americans struggle with addiction every year. And, for those almost-80 percent of Americans who identify as religious, a faith-based program can enhance their recovery and prevent relapse.
Addicted individuals commonly feel shame and guilt about the disease, while also supporting its negative effects. People of faith might also wrestle with what it means for their spirituality to abuse drugs and alcohol. These negative emotions and feelings can hinder their road to recovery. Faith-based treatment can reduce those feelings. In our faith-based rehabilitation track, we help bring patients closer to God’s unconditional love so that they feel empowered to release their shame and guilt. Those who are willing to change seek God’s presence and forgiveness.
An emphasis on faith and spirituality can create hope, purpose, fulfillment, and peace for our clients who struggle with the healing process.
Furthermore, faith-based treatment also focuses on reducing feelings of loneliness that people with addiction feel. When addiction takes over someone, they might isolate themselves from family and friends. Isolation is dangerous and can serve to complicate the recovery process and relapse prevention.
However, faith-based treatment alone is not enough to achieve full recovery. Patients who actively take part in our faith-based program will also receive full clinical support, group counseling, individual therapy, and more. Faith-based addiction treatment can be a great boost to sustainable recovery. “For I will restore health to you, and I will heal your wounds,
says the Lord.”
