The Power of God in Recovery
Many individuals feel powerless against their addictions, which is why they may have so much trouble getting sober. According to the NIDA, “When people enter treatment for a substance use disorder, addiction has often taken over their lives. The compulsion to get drugs, take drugs, and experience the effects of drugs has taken the place of all the things they used to enjoy doing.” For these reasons, feelings of helplessness are common among individuals attempting to quit abusing drugs.
There are rehab programs that specifically focus on people’s belief in God and Christianity.
Christian drug rehab programs help individuals working on their recovery by reminding them of the power of their faith in God. It also gives them the ability to use that faith as a touchstone to help them fight their addictions. For many patients, this treatment approach strengthens their resolve and allows them to feel less alone in their pursuit of recovery.
The Comfort of Religion
It is important that a person feels comfortable in their rehabilitation program simply because they will be more likely to continue attending treatment if they do. Continued attendance in treatment causes better outcomes for the individual, according to the NIDA. “Because successful outcomes often depend on a person’s staying in treatment long enough to reap its full benefits, strategies for keeping people in treatment are critical.”
Religion can be a comfort to many individuals and help them feel that they are pursuing the right path when it comes to recovery. Since many Christians have strong ties to the churches of their childhoods, this type of treatment can be very successful in helping patients feel comfortable and at ease in their rehab facility. In addition, nurses, doctors, counselors, and spiritual advisors involved in their rehabilitation can help patients stay in treatment by building strong, beneficial relationships with them. This is often facilitated by the fact that the patient and the caregiver share a similar faith.

Holistic and Traditional Treatments Combined
Christian drug rehab programs combine holistic and traditional treatments to help patients recover from addiction. This is extremely beneficial because it gives patients multiple layers of assistance when it comes to their recovery. Traditional treatments, like cognitive-behavioral therapy, medication, and group therapy, have been known to be the most successful options for addiction recovery while holistic treatments pinpoint an individual’s more specific needs and cater to them while also allowing them another avenue to express their feelings about addiction and recovery.
According to a study from the NCBI, “Patients [can] develop a stronger sense of self-identity, self-esteem, and self-confidence” through holistic treatment, and this can occur with the help of Christian rehab. However, the program also incorporates traditional treatments to give patients the best overall rehabilitation experience.
