In Catholic rehab centers, patients are given treatment that melds traditional and holistic approaches and allows them to explore the spiritual side of their recovery.

Traditional and Spiritual Treatments
Patients attending a Catholic rehab center are often given both types of treatment in order to strengthen their recoveries. Because religion can be a comfort to many individuals as well as a way in which fortitude can be established during difficult times, Catholic rehab centers use faith-based teachings to help patients work through the issues they are experiencing with addiction and recovery.
It is important to note that many of these facilities still provide traditional approaches like medication, individual therapy sessions, group therapy, and others that have been medically proven to be effective in the treatment of addiction. Still, many individuals are able to express feelings and seek comfort in religion that they may not have found in established treatments.
Catholic rehabs include religious teachings in their treatment programs.
Often, patients are able to receive both spiritual counseling and behavioral therapy as a part of their rehab treatment. Many patients who attend these types of facilities are both comforted and strengthened by their Catholic faiths, and the melding of these two types of guidance allow them to receive these benefits without sacrificing traditional treatment. According to the NIDA, “Effective treatment attends to multiple needs of the individual, not just his or her drug abuse,” and this type of hybrid counseling can do both for patients who receive solace from their religion.

The Small Differences
For the most part, Catholic rehab centers are very much like nonreligious treatment facilities: they provide specific treatment types as well as a personalized treatment program for each patient, allow patients to draw strength from one another and forge beneficial social relationships, and provide a staff of caring individuals who are also qualified clinicians. These facilities work in much the same way as secular centers do.
However, the small differences are what make them work for certain individuals. The constant reminder of a patient’s religious covenant could provide them with strength on a day where they are otherwise grasping. The serenity that can come from being in a religious atmosphere allows many patients to reflect more easily on their actions and how they would like to move forward into their future recovery. And in some of these facilities, the use of medication is replaced with prayer and meditation, which is preferred by many patients.
Treatment in Catholic rehab centers works when patients are able to receive the medical benefits they need as well as something more. Many individuals do not draw strength from spirituality, but those who do can find that this type of treatment center will work for them through a combination of spiritual and traditional methods. And these patients are often able to draw on their religious beliefs in times of doubt long after their treatment at the center has ended.
