And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.
1 Peter 5:10
How Christian Therapy can Help You
It may begin as a glass of wine in the evening. Then it becomes a glass of wine in the evening and one with dinner. And then one as soon as you get home to take the edge off. Before you even realize what’s happening, you start thinking about a drink halfway through work. Alcoholism is often referred to as a “cunning and baffling” disease. You do not become an alcoholic overnight. Alcoholism is a progressive illness that can develop overtime. For some, they demonstrated signs of alcoholic behavior as a teen. Others, however, have slowly progressed over the years. There are also “functioning alcoholics.” Without even realizing it, these individuals have adjusted their goals, their dreams, their relationships and really their entire lives to revolve around alcohol, but because they can maintain they don’t think that they have a problem.
If you have decided to seek Christian therapy for alcoholism, it is important to find a Christian clinician who is experienced in treating patients with substance abuse issues.
