How Faith Based Addiction Treatment Centers Help You Overcome Addiction

Faith based addiction treatment is just one of the many types of drug treatment that are offered at various types of centers throughout the country. What makes a faith based addiction treatment center different than a traditional or non-faith based treatment center is that every aspect of treatment in a faith based addiction treatment center revolves around religion and the role of religion in helping the addict to heal both physically and psychologically as well as spiritually.

Faith based addiction treatment allows addicts to seek a spiritual path to recovery from addiction under the guidance and care of counselors as well as usually a priest or pastor. Our spirit suffers greatly as a result of drug addiction and there is usually a very high need for a repair and recovery phase to help the addict heal physically, psychologically and spiritually. Spiritual guidance is an important part of any recovery program and it is the guiding principle of a faith based addiction treatment program.

How Faith Based Addiction Treatment Enhances Recovery

Faith based addiction treatment programs provide a number of opportunities and ways for recovering addicts to enhance their recovery efforts with the guiding principles of their religious faith. Some of the most common elements that you can expect to find in a faith based addiction treatment program include:

  • Guided Bible Study
  • Daily Scripture
  • Lectures and Sermons by pastors, priests and ordained ministers of the church
  • Time for Reflection and prayer both in group and alone
  • Daily church services
  • Counseling from a priest, pastor or member of the church

Typically, every aspect of faith based addiction treatment takes some focus of the treatment on the spirit. For instance, you may attend church in the morning, have a prayer session and then have some free time for reflection. Through faith based addiction treatment, the individual who is recovering from years of trauma, guilt and depression related to addiction is able to heal physically, psychologically, spiritually and emotionally under the guidance and care of the church, the bible and God.
