Religious Addiction Treatment

Once you’ve decided to seek help for your drug or alcohol addiction, you might be wondering about the different treatment options available. The choices go beyond inpatient or outpatient treatment. You can choose to seek help that aligns with your beliefs at a religious drug rehab. Rather than worrying about whether you can discuss your beliefs or not, you can attend treatment where your views can be discussed openly as part of your treatment. However, you don’t have to be part of a religion to attend a religious based treatment program. At 10 Acre Ranch, we understand the importance of bringing and developing your faith on your road to sobriety. 

Establishing What Religious Addiction Treatment Is

Addiction is a physical, mental, and spiritual disease. Rehab offers us sanctuary where we can do the work to restore our mental, physical and spiritual health. Most addiction treatment will include detox, therapy, skills groups, and exposure to recovery groups such as twelve-step recovery groups. Many twelve-step recovery programs focus on spirituality and the need for a Higher Power. In fact, more than seventy percent of substance abuse recovery programs in the US include a spirituality-based element. However, many of these programs leave it up to you to define your Higher Power.  While this can work for some, others may find they prefer to use God and Jesus Christ as their Higher Power. A religious addiction treatment program can provide you with guidance to do so. 

Religious drug rehab does just this and offers an added focus on faith. While religious drug rehab is typically Christian-based, it does not require that you become a Christian or learn all the faith information.  Instead, the teachings of Christianity are woven throughout treatment. The teachings offer an opportunity to view another perspective, which can help you gain the confidence you need for sobriety. Additionally, the lessons will stay with you once you leave rehab and can help you build a new way of life. Some research has found that those who can establish faith or spirituality can heal faster and have a more robust relapse prevention plan. 

How Religious Drug Rehab Can Get You Sober 

Researchers have found that religious addiction treatment often succeeds in offering a safer, more supportive environment than traditional addiction treatment. The researchers attributed this to the Christian concept of agape.  Using Christian teachings and spiritual testimony, religious addiction treatment programs offer individuals a different path to sobriety. Through the loving, forgiving principles found in the Bible, many other faiths can find the healing they seek in rehab. Sometimes just knowing that we are loved and accepted is enough to begin to heal the wounds of addiction. These programs also often offer a higher level of structure and more activities to provide a stronger sobriety foundation. One of the primary goals is to give you the best opportunity to heal while you become the best version of yourself. Religious drug treatment offers this opportunity while providing you with additional tools to use after rehab.
