5 Ways Catholic Rehab Centers Will Transform Your Life

According to a study from the NCBI, “Individuals recovering from addictions frequently cite spirituality as a helpful influence.” Catholic rehab centers can help recovering addicts by providing both traditional treatment methods and holistic ones, combining the benefits of the medical and the spiritual. And, in many ways, these types of facilities can transform your entire life.

1. Renewed Faith in God

Many individuals begin abusing drugs for a specific reason, usually either to “feel good… or to feel better,” according to the NIDA. Some common scenarios associated with drug abuse are

  • Someone who wanting to feel euphoric, high, or different than normal
  • Someone attempting to self-medicate with the use of drugs
  • Someone who is trying to cope with the problems in their life (stress, mental disorders, trauma, etc.) by using drugs
  • Someone who is unhappy and hoping drugs will make them happier

Unfortunately, the act of seeking out drugs voluntarily will often turn involuntary over time. Someone who attends Catholic rehab may be able to find a safer, more effective way to obtain the happiness they seek through a spiritual connection with God. This can change a person’s entire perspective and help them cope with their current issue of drug addiction.

2. A Source of Strength

Catholic rehab can provide a source of strength in your life that you may have been searching for, helping you to fight the temptation of further drug abuse and to continue doing what you know is healthy for you. Many individuals are able to find this strength through religion which can often be difficult to research scientifically but is transformative on its own.

3. Peace of Mind

Catholic treatment centers help people overcome addiction through a strengthened faith in God.

Comfort and peace are two other benefits people often draw from their religions during recovery. Patients who attend Catholic rehab are often able to reflect in the serenity of their facility, knowing that their religion provides them with a comfort that they may have gone without for a long time.

4. Fortifying Relationships

Especially if you have many friends or family members who are Catholic, attending a religious rehab facility can help you reinforce your relationships with them, which may have suffered during the time of your drug abuse. Many of these facilities provide family therapy and couples therapy so that patients can better understand what their loved ones are going through and vice-versa. In addition, group therapy sessions can allow you to meet individuals who, like you, are also finding strength through their religion during a time of personal crisis.

5. Traditional Treatment Benefits Plus Religious Benefits

While there are many ways in which a renewed religious faith can transform your life and help you recover from addiction, these facilities also provide traditional treatment types such as

  • Behavioral therapies
  • Medication
  • Vocational and legal help
  • Medical treatment for the physical effects of drug abuse
  • Nutrition classes, exercise, nature walks, and other holistic methods

Through these facilities, you will receive the medically established treatments that have been proven to be effective for many individuals as well as the spiritual practices that may be especially beneficial to you. And with this kind of well-balanced treatment, your life will be transformed into a more enriching and healthful one, free from drug abuse. Call 800-481-6320 toll free for help finding treatment.
