If you or a loved one is struggling with addiction, it is recommended that you seek professional help. For assistance finding a Christian substance abuse counselor call 1-800-832-5250.
Addiction is a deadly disease. If you are concerned that there is a problem, the sooner you get help the better. The longer you wait to seek help, the more time you allow your addiction to progress. However, the sooner you receive the proper treatment, the easier it is to experience a full recovery.
Faith is—or has the potential to be—a tremendous part of people’s lives. For those who have always felt a strong connection with Christ, they know the strength and peace of His love. A counselor can help them regain the connection that drugs and alcohol have a tendency to diminish.
For others that have always struggled with the ability to connect with Christ, Christian addiction therapy affords them the opportunity to experience His love and finally fill the void that has plagued them for so long. Many people often experience and sense of emptiness and lack of purpose. However, when they seek help and are introduced to the idea that they can develop a meaningful, personal relationship with God, those feelings are replaced with a sense of hope and fulfillment.
Christian substance abuse counseling provides men and women who are concerned that they may being showing signs of addiction to speak with a licensed mental health counselor who can lead them on a path of healing that pulls from evidenced based addition therapies while employing a faith based approach. Christian addiction therapists are trained professionals who have dedicated their lives to helping others recovery from drug and alcohol addictions. They address the issues—such as trauma, loss, mental illness and dysfunction within the family of origin—that have perpetuated addictive behaviors.

So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.”
Whether you are choosing traditional or Christian drug and alcohol treatment for you or a loved one, you want to find a place that offers an appropriate level of care. Who the staff is and what their credentials are is extremely important. Regardless of if it’s a faith-based facility, it should still offer medical and psychiatric care. This means employing Master’s level therapists and board certified addictions psychiatrists.
Why Choose a Christian-Based Drug Rehab Facility?
Christian treatment centers are able to offer care that truly focuses in the mental, physical and spiritual aspects of the healing process. The physical toll that addiction takes on the body is the first thing to be addressed. Without medical intervention, detox can be an uncomfortable and even painful process. However, through medication and various pain management techniques clients can stay comfortable and be free of the physical hold the drugs and alcohol have over them.
People who have been diagnosed with depression, anxiety and bipolar disorder are much more likely to have substance abuse issues. That is why psychiatric treatment—including proper monitoring, medication and individual sessions with a board certified psychiatrist—is so important to the recovery process.
Drugs and alcohol strain the important relationships in our life. They compromise our role as a parent, a child, a spouse, a friend and an employee. We feel disconnected to those around us. Drugs and alcohol often act as a wall surrounding us, keeping us isolated from others and life overall. Our relationship with God is also hurt by our addiction. If we cannot honestly connect with another person, how can we expect to be genuine in our relationship with God?
Recovering Souls is a Christian service that finds drug and alcohol treatment for men and women who need help.

What good fellowship we once enjoyed
as we walked together to the house of God
What is a Halfway House?
People will often confuse halfway houses with drug treatment. It is important to understand the difference between the two so that you can understand which would be best for you. Drug treatment or rehab facilities generally offer some type of therapeutic and/or medical care. This may include a medical detox, dual diagnosis treatment by a psychiatric team, EMDR (a type of trauma therapy) and individual and group sessions with Master’s level clinicians. This type of higher level care is strongly recommended for people just beginning the recovery process, especially if you are struggling with underlying issues such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, ADHD or trauma. During the first several weeks of sobriety, the emotional ups and downs and the intense cravings can often lead to relapse. The type of supervision and therapeutic support offered by residential treatment centers in Florida is what many men need to make it through this difficult time.
A halfway house, also known as a sober living residence, transitional living or sober housing, is ideal for someone who is physical stable (fully detoxed) and has received or is continuing to receive some type of drug and alcohol counseling either through an inpatient or outpatient treatment facility.
Christian halfway houses offer a faith based foundation. In addition to promoting a 12 Step centered approach to the recovery process, these sober living homes offer onsite Bible study and transportation to Church services on Sundays. They are staffed with recovering addicts and alcoholics who have found hope and lasting recovery through Christ and the 12 Steps. Being able to share both your faith and goal of recovery helps to foster a strong sense of community at Christian halfway houses in Florida. One man helping another is the very principle that 12 Step recovery programs are founded on.

Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness.
Much of Jesus’s life was spent healing the sick. The Bible recounts story after story of how Jesus was able to help those who were disabled or stricken with illness. He is there to comfort us when we are hurting and to help us heal.
Addiction is an illness that people from all backgrounds and walks of life struggle with. It is not a moral failing or a sign of weakness. It is a disease and like any disease, requires professional help to get better. Oftentimes addiction and addictive behaviors are related to deeper, underlying issues such as a co-occurring disorder or trauma. These issues need to be addressed and receive the attention they need. If left unaddressed, these issues have the potential to undermine the recovery process.
Christian drug treatment programs in Florida are for men and women who cannot stop using and drinking on their own and need help. They combine the medical and therapeutic professional intervention with a strong faith based approach. Many individuals in the early stages of the recovery process struggle with the concept of finding a higher power that can help them. Building a strong spiritual foundation early on can help give people the guidance and direction they need as obstacles arise. In addition to working one on one with licensed Christian therapists, clients are introduced to a number of therapies and coping mechanisms designed to help addicts achieve sobriety. Dual diagnosis treatment with a board certified psychiatrist is offered to those suffering from a mental illness—such as anxiety, ADHD, depression or bipolar disorder—alongside their addiction. Trauma therapy (EMDR) is a method used that has been proven to be a successful way to treat both trauma as well as aid an individual in releasing old, negative patterns of belief.

But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ— by grace you have been saved—
So many people try to stop drinking on their own, thinking if they tried hard enough or just had enough willpower they could quit. If this were true, they would have stopped drinking once they started experiencing consequences. Addicts and alcoholics cannot fix themselves—they need help from a power greater than themselves.
There is no shame in making mistakes. No human being is perfect. God wants to help us. He wants us to overcome our struggles and find comfort in Him. He does not look down on us for our sins and readily forgives those who seek Him out. That which we cannot do on our own, we can do through Christ. He transforms us, no matter how far down our addiction has taken us. He lifts us up from our despair and saves us from ourselves. He brings healing to the broken; through Him we are reborn. Our alcoholism brought us close to death; many of us felt as though we were emotionally and spiritually dead. But through Him, we are brought back to life.
Christian based alcohol treatment programs helps men and women find physical, emotional and spiritual healing. The first step is medically assisted detox. Alcohol detox is one of the most severe and dangerous detoxes if attempted without professional intervention. The next step focuses on helping men and women address the underlying issues that have led to the addictive behaviors. A combination of therapies—including cognitive behavioral therapy, art therapy, trauma therapy and others—along with prayer and Bible study are used to help clients be released from the pain of their past and learn to practice new behaviors that encourage a sober lifestyle.

And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.
One of the most devastating consequences of drug abuse is the loss of hope. Some individuals may lose their jobs, their cars, their valuable possessions and even their homes. However, not everyone that struggles with drug abuse does. The feeling of despair, the growing emotional and spiritual pain that results from addiction can be experienced by those who appear to have it all.
Drug abuse takes us away from our relationship with God. When we place drugs and alcohol ahead of our relationship with God we make idols of these things. The time and energy we put into using and getting drugs became our main focus. For those that have crossed the line into addiction, they may even find that their words, thoughts and actions are dictated by their desire to use rather than by God’s will. In this place of darkness, it is difficult to feel God’s love and comfort. We felt a spiritual emptiness that we attempted to fill with drugs and alcohol, but this only made the emptiness grow. The shame and guilt that accompanied our drug use and our actions while we were high led us deeper into despair.
Breaking free from your addiction is hard—many struggle with it. But you do not have to do it alone. Recovering Souls is a service that helps Christian men and women who have been abusing drugs and alcohol find the help they need.

Opiate addiction is a deadly, devastating disease. Opiates refer to a class of drugs that include heroin, morphine and prescription painkillers such as Oxycontin, Percocet and Codeine. In recent years, we have seen a dramatic increase in the abuse of opiates due largely to the increase in the use of prescription painkillers.
Is Long-term Opiate Addiction Treatment Necessary?
Recovery is an individualized process. What works for one person may not work for another. However, research and experience has shown us time and time again that an individual who stays at an inpatient treatment facility for 30 days is far less likely to achieve long term sobriety than someone who participates in a long-term opiate addiction treatment program.
Long-term drug treatment can mean different things. There are inpatient residential programs where clients can stay as long as a year. However, some may not need such a high level of care for such a long period of time. For those who do not need long-term inpatient treatment or are not able to stay at a residential treatment facility for that long, there are various aftercare programs they can attend.
Outpatient treatment is an affordable treatment option that many choose to participate in after they complete a higher level of care. Clients in an outpatient program will continue to attend therapeutic groups and relapse prevention classes. They will meet will a therapist for individual sessions and continue to address the underlying issues of addiction, such as trauma or a co-occurring disorder. Deciding to attend an outpatient program after completing a residential drug treatment center can help you adjust to sobriety while you return to work or school. Learning how to stay sober in the reality of everyday life is crucial. Outpatient drug treatment helps clients to find practical and effective solutions to challenges as they come up. Triggers—such as work, stress, relationships, depression—can be processed in a therapeutic setting rather than allowing them to lead to relapse.
Sober living is another long-term option for men and women who are serious about staying sober. Sober homes offer affordable long-term aftercare that provides men and women in early recovery a safe place to stay as they work on rebuilding their lives.
Recovering Souls is a drug and alcohol treatment placement service. We help individuals find the level of care that is right for them. We work with a number of inpatient, outpatient and detox facilities as well as various sober living homes. You can reach us 24/7 by calling 1-800-832-5250.
Holistic drug and alcohol detox facilities focus on healing the spirit as well as the body. Often, when we do not feel well physically, our mental and spiritual well-being is affected. And we know that spiritual or mental ailments, such as stress, anger and depression, can manifest themselves physically. The connection between the mind, body and spirit is clear and treatment that recognizes this and treats individuals as such have been shown to be more effective at helping clients achieve recovery.
Detox involves breaking the physical dependency that the individual has on drugs and alcohol. When a substance is used continuously for a sustained period of time, a mental, emotional and physical addiction can develop. Withdrawal symptoms, which can be both mental and physical in nature, occur when an addict abruptly stops using. A medically assisted detox can ease these withdrawal symptoms, increasing the likelihood that the client will see the withdrawal period through to the end.
A holistic drug and alcohol detox will not only treat the physical discomfort of detoxing, but also the emotional and mental withdrawal symptoms. Therapies and activities that utilize an integrative approach to the recovery process provide clients with a comprehensive detox experience that creates a solid foundation upon which clients can build a strong recovery. Gentle exercise (such as yoga and tai chi), acupuncture, massage therapy, nutrition consultations, meditation, guided imagery and Expressive Therapies are all used as part of a holistic approach to drug and alcohol treatment. Addiction is a complex disease that compromises the well-being of every aspect of the individual’s life. It only makes sense that to treat it we must apply a multi-modal approach that is able to address all the different aspects of an individual that have been affected.
Recovering Souls is a detox placement service that helps men and women who are looking to break the dependency that they have on drugs and alcohol. Addiction quite literally traps men and women. Their thoughts are always focused on using and getting more. They start experience nausea and cold sweats if they go without using for too long. Some may feel like they cannot even leave the immediate area of where they live for fear of not being able to get more drugs. This is not living—it’s just maintaining.
We can help. Call Recovering Souls today to learn about the different placement services we provide. You can reach us 24/7 by calling 1-800-832-5250.
But blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD whose confidence is in him. He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”
Jeremiah 17:7-8 NIV
So much of our fear stems from things that have not even happened. We worry about the future and what it will bring. Often these fears do not even materialize and we waste time and energy on worrying about things that may not occur and are completely out of our hands.
For addicts and alcoholics who are still in their active addictions but would like to get sober, part of what is holding them back is their fear—what if it doesn’t work? What will I do then? What if I don’t like being sober? How will deal with life without drugs and alcohol?
Faith can replace our fears. Christian drug and alcohol treatment focuses on teaching clients how to rely on faith rather than allowing fear to dictate their lives. Through Christian based groups, scripture and working one-on-one with Christian addictions counselors, clients learn how developing a strong relationship with God can set them free from the chains of addiction. Through the transformative power of Christ’s love they are able to let go of their fears and realize that He will always support and comfort us and guide us in the right direction when we are lost. Clients in Christian rehab facilities learn that no matter the challenges they face in their sobriety, nothing is too big or too difficult to make it through as long as they trust in the Lord.
Fears often stem from unhealthy messages we received growing up or traumatic and painful events that happened in our lives. Part of the treatment process is using various therapeutic modalities to address and process these issues. This therapies can include Trauma Therapy (EMDR), Art Therapy, Creative Writing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Psychotherapy.
If you are concerned that you may have a problem with drugs and alcohol, call Recovering Souls today. We help people find the right level of care, whether they need detox, inpatient treatment or sober living. You don’t have to lose everything before you get help.

There are many different misconceptions about drug treatment, mostly fueled by media portrayals. What we see in movies and on reality shows and what we hear in the news about different celebrities that go into treatment programs can form our opinion as to what really happens in a drug rehab center. You may assume that drug treatment is all about cleaning toilets and having people scream in your face—a sort of “tough love” approach. Or you may think that all drug treatment centers are incredibly expensive, high end places that only the super-rich can afford.
The truth is there are a number of different types of treatment programs. Some practice a more tough love approach and some are very luxurious, posh facilities. Most are affordable programs that accept insurance and offer a number of different approaches to recovery.
Many treatment centers practice an individualized approach to treatment, offering a variety of therapies . Some programs make certain groups mandatory while others allow clients to choose which groups they would like to attend. Some offer faith-based options, like Christian groups, while others focus on a more holistic approach.
What Happens During My Stay at a Rehab Facility?
As was mentioned before, all drug treatment centers are different, some more so than others. However, the following is an outline of what you may experience when you go to treatment.
Treatment will generally begin with a medical detox that uses a combination of therapy and medication to help clients make it through the withdrawal process (although there are some facilities that do not utilize medication unless life-threatening symptoms are present and instead clients will detox “cold turkey”). During this time, you may or may not be required to participate in groups and other treatment activities. You will also undergo a thorough assessment. You will be assigned a therapist based on the issues revealed during this assessment. Your time will be spent attending groups, meetings (some treatment centers will take you off the property for outside 12 Step meetings while others will have them onsite), individual sessions with your therapist, psychiatric sessions and planned recreational events.
Recovering Souls is a drug and alcohol treatment placement service. We believe that your specific needs are important and that the rehab facility you go to should be able to provide you with the individualized care that you need.
