Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.
Alcoholism is not a “weakness” or a result of not having enough “willpower.” Alcoholism is a disease that affects the lives of those who suffer from it as well as the family members who witness their loved ones struggling. Christian counseling for alcoholics focuses on combining elements from the 12 Step model, traditional and expressive therapies and faith-based healing to help those struggling with alcohol addiction gain insight into their disease and understand the steps they need to take to start the healing process. Alcoholism is a disease of the mind, body and soul. Christian counseling for alcoholism addresses the physical, mental and spiritual toll that addiction takes on an individual while focusing on a balanced program of recovery.
Christian counselors teach clients to turn to both 12 Step literature as well as Biblical scripture when they are struggling and need guidance. The spiritual principles behind the 12 Step program closely parallel the teachings of Christianity, both offering a lasting solution to a spiritual malady. And of course the caring and compassionate counselors are available to support clients as they navigate the early recovery process. Family counseling is also available to help the family adjust to the changes that often accompany sobriety enabling them to move forward in the recovery process together.
Christian counselors are licensed mental health addictions counselors with Master’s degrees who have specialized in incorporating faith into treatment. They are able to bring into their practice their own faith and Christian beliefs, augmenting the clients own belief in the ability of Christ to heal them.
