By the time you are ready to receive treatment for your drug and alcohol addiction, you are most likely at a point in your life where you need to be reminded of God’s love and forgiveness more than ever. You may be feeling overwhelmed with many different emotions—guilt, fear, anger, sadness, shame. It is important to remember that while we all stumble in life, God’s love is constant—”Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,” says the LORD, who has compassion on you” (Isaiah 54:10). At a Christian treatment center, you will be encouraged to renew and strengthen your relationship with God. Christian treatment centers are staffed with caring and compassionate Christian therapists and counselors who know and share Christ’s love. They are licensed and certified professionals that are able to bring into their work the kindness and love they derive from their faith.
Christians with substance abuse issues may struggle with the idea that their addiction is a result of a moral failing—this is simply not true. Addiction is recognized by the American Medical Association as a disease and, as with any disease, it often requires professional intervention. Christian treatment centers provide the professional help you need to get started on the road to recovery. They utilize the latest research in order to provide the most advanced medical care. Christian treatment centers offer individual counseling, group therapy, family counseling, relapse prevention education, 12 Step groups, Bible study, and more. They combine the teachings of the scripture with the 12 Step philosophy in order to offer a comprehensive approach to treatment. They help you build the strong spiritual foundation that you need to achieve long term recovery. Learning how to develop your faith, communicate through prayer, and rely on God are some of the most valuable resources a person in recovery can have. You will be able to take the tools you learn in a Christian treatment center and use them in your life, long after you have completed treatment.
