Why Christian Rehab is Effective

spirituality and addiction

Rehab programs based in Christianity help you strengthen your faith and use it help you in recovery.

An addiction to drugs or alcohol not only interferes with an individual’s physical and psychological well-being, the spiritual impact that an addiction can have on a user is also very deep. Often times, users are unable to fully heal from the pain that is caused by their decision to use drugs unless they get adequate spiritual help. For a Christian, focused attention on the spiritual elements of recovery can be highly effective.

What is Christian Rehab?

Much like a standard rehabilitation center, Christian rehab centers provide counseling and guidance as well as support to those who are addicted. However, much unlike a standard program, Christian rehab focuses on helping patients to come to terms with their addiction in a way that takes a religious, God centered focus. Throughout treatment, Christian principles are incorporated into the recovery elements. According to SAMHSA, Christian rehab often includes sober living and low cost or free services that are aimed at helping patients to heal on a spiritual level.

Why it Works

Christians are firm believers in faith and spiritual recovery. When a Christian who is addicted to drugs or alcohol receives spiritual guidance and strengthening, they are often able to sustain greater efforts of recovery and find ways to accept that what they were doing in their previous way of life is not only hurting them, but it’s also causing conflict between them and God.

Christian rehab is a motivating factor that includes:

  • Regular bible study.
  • Pastor sermons that are geared toward the effects of addiction on spiritual wellness.
  • Time for self-reflection and spiritual awakening.
  • Incorporation of biblical principles and Christian morals into everyday treatment methods.

Christian programs utilize 12 step approaches to treatment that help to restore the individual into a state in which he understands that addiction caused problems in his life, and that there are steps that can be taken to prevent further problems and to heal. Spiritual support strengthens the individual’s ability to feel more focused and this in turn can improve recovery outcomes.

Who Needs Christian Rehab?

Not everyone can benefit from Christian rehab. In fact, for an individual who is not faith motivated or who does not carry strong Christian values, this method of treatment may prove to be too spiritual focused. However, many find that Christian treatment helps them to feel better about themselves and to heal on a physical, psychological and spiritual level. You may benefit from this type of addiction treatment if:

  • You already believe in Christian morals and principles.
  • You are interested in learning more about the Christian faith.
  • You believe in God.
