Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
During our active addiction, we became people we could not recognize. Our addiction led us to hurt ourselves and the ones we loved. The guilt and shame we experienced as a consequence of our actions often caused us to drink and use more in order to avoid dealing with the feelings. It became a cycle that we feared we could never break free from—and we couldn’t, at least, not on our own. We needed help.
Christian treatment centers provide the support and guidance you will need to take those first steps in recovery. Through Christ, we are given the opportunity to start over and approach life in a new way. We can share our past with others as a way to offer hope, but our past does not have to define who we are or dictate our future. We are able to begin a new life in Christ. If we allow our past to burden us, to maintain control over us, it makes it difficult for us to fulfill our purpose and it prevents us from realizing how much we are capable of achieving. We are not trapped by the things we have done, we do not have to be haunted by the memories of the people we once were. We can turn over our guilt and shame to Christ in order to better serve Him and, in turn, help others.
Recovering Souls is not a Christian treatment center, but a free service that can refer individuals struggling with addiction to any one of the many Christian treatment centers in our extensive network. We believe in a faith-based approach to addiction treatment because we have seen how so many of our clients have come to us having tried a variety of ways to overcome their addiction, yet they continued to return to drugs and alcohol. Many of them found that when they became willing to completely turn their lives over to God, they were able to achieve long-term sobriety.
If you or someone you love is struggling with addiction, don’t wait to get help. Call Recovering Souls today. We can help answer any questions you may have about Christian treatment centers or questions you may have about addiction in general.
