It seems that every rehab center or service is faith based. Many of the community based programs are as well. It is important to ask the question of whether faith is necessary for rehab and recovery. In order to answer this you need to understand exactly what faith provides to people and how it is integrated into rehab programs.
What does Faith Provide?
Although each individual is different faith usually provides a sense of belonging and community to some people. When questioned most people state that faith:
Helps them deal with the unexplainable,
Gives them an opportunity to forgive themselves,
Teaches them how to forgive others,
Shows them that they are not always to blame, and
Allows them to give over the stress and pain from life and their drug use.
Faith in things has also had the added effect of calming those with mental illnesses and other issues.
How to Use Faith in Rehab
Faith helps people move forward and stay sober.
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, stress, mental illness, and other emotional factors are key to who will or will not become addicted to drugs. Some entire rehab programs are based on having faith that things will get better and that you have hit the bottom of your life.
Although this is not necessarily, true. This belief helps thousands of people pull themselves up with the theory that it cannot possibly get worse.
Many people use faith in rehab to allow someone else to take responsibility for the things that they have done. This does not necessarily they are no longer to blame but it gives them a clear target. Rather than blaming themselves, they can blame how they were on alcohol. Many use faith as an excuse to stay away from drugs and alcohol.
Many People Shy Away From Faith in Rehab
Some people are just do not believe in a faith based world. They have a hard time believing in something that they cannot see, touch, or put a finger on. They do not have faith so a faith based rehab will not work for them.
There is no harm in not having faith in something. It is the byproduct of our society sometimes. Unfortunately, many people believe that you have to have faith in something in order to complete rehab. This is not necessarily true.
When faith is confused with spirituality and religion it can cause people to shy away from rehab programs that have a basis in either. When searching for an appropriate rehab facility it is important to look for one that fits with your faith, spiritual, and religious beliefs.
