We live by faith, not by sight
2 Corinthians 5:7
In our active alcoholism, we began to lose hope that we could again enjoy life the way we once had. We found that we could no longer enjoy life with alcohol, but we were not sure we could enjoy life without it. We would make promises to ourselves and to our loved ones that we were only going to have a couple of drinks, but we would inevitably wind up drunk. So then we would try to stop drinking all together, only to find ourselves drunk again. In the darkness of our active alcoholism, we could not see a way out. What we did not realize then was that God had a plan for us, that His light would lead us out of the darkness. God could make the impossible possible.
At Recovering Souls, we believe that faith and recovery go hand in hand. For us, the road of recovery has been a road of faith. It has been our experience that Christian alcohol treatment centers truly understand the importance of faith in recovery. As we grow stronger in our faith, we find that our belief in our ability to stay sober, regardless of what obstacles we may face, strengthens as well. We could not get sober on our own. We found that in order to get sober—and stay sober—we had to turn our lives over to the care of God—“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God” (Ephesians 2:8).
Christian alcohol treatment centers offer the same services and programs as a non-faith based alcohol treatment center. They provide a medically supervised detox, one on one counseling with a certified addictions specialist, groups led by licensed therapists, dual diagnosis treatment, and teach relapse prevention skills. In addition, Christian treatment facilities specialize in finding hope and forgiveness through Christ. They teach a Christ-centered approach to the 12 Steps and use the Bible alongside the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous.
Recovering Souls is not a treatment facility, but a service that places individuals struggling with alcoholism in Christian alcohol treatment centers that specialize in faith with recovery. We work with Christian alcohol treatment centers across the country, and make sure that any facility we work with is licensed and accredited.
