But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ— by grace you have been saved—
So many people try to stop drinking on their own, thinking if they tried hard enough or just had enough willpower they could quit. If this were true, they would have stopped drinking once they started experiencing consequences. Addicts and alcoholics cannot fix themselves—they need help from a power greater than themselves.
There is no shame in making mistakes. No human being is perfect. God wants to help us. He wants us to overcome our struggles and find comfort in Him. He does not look down on us for our sins and readily forgives those who seek Him out. That which we cannot do on our own, we can do through Christ. He transforms us, no matter how far down our addiction has taken us. He lifts us up from our despair and saves us from ourselves. He brings healing to the broken; through Him we are reborn. Our alcoholism brought us close to death; many of us felt as though we were emotionally and spiritually dead. But through Him, we are brought back to life.
Christian based alcohol treatment programs helps men and women find physical, emotional and spiritual healing. The first step is medically assisted detox. Alcohol detox is one of the most severe and dangerous detoxes if attempted without professional intervention. The next step focuses on helping men and women address the underlying issues that have led to the addictive behaviors. A combination of therapies—including cognitive behavioral therapy, art therapy, trauma therapy and others—along with prayer and Bible study are used to help clients be released from the pain of their past and learn to practice new behaviors that encourage a sober lifestyle.
