May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word.
2 Thessalonians 2:16-17
Why Choose a Christian Long-term Treatment Center?
So often we have seen men and women trying to get sober throw up their arms and say “I can’t. I just can’t do this.” These are people who have been in and out of treatment centers. Labeled “chronic relapsers,” they start to lose hope that they will ever be able to achieve lasting sobriety. Many admitted that every time they got sober, it still felt like they were missing something. And when the desire to drink or use arose, they did not feel strong enough to resist temptation.
Having a strong spiritual foundation is critical to maintaining long term sobriety. It is ultimately one’s relationship with God that allows them to overcome any obstacle. The behaviors that characterize addiction—such as lying, cheating, manipulation, ego, fear, obsessive thinking—do not automatically go away simply because we stopped drinking and using. In fact, without the drugs and alcohol, they may even intensify. If we do not find a way to let go of these behaviors, we risk returning to drugs and alcohol.
Christian long-term treatment centers allow men and women the opportunity to heal before returning to the world outside of treatment. Change takes times. You cannot expect to change everything about the way you live in 30 days. Long-term Christian treatment not only gives you the spiritual tools you need, but allows the time to practice using them in a safe and supportive environment. Christian therapists remind clients that they are never alone and lead by example to show how one can strengthen their relationship with God.
