Christian Drug Rehab
When choosing a drug or alcohol rehab program, there are several different factors to consider, including the level of care, therapies offered, location, cost, and philosophy including spiritual counseling. For those looking for renewal and a purposeful life, Christian drug rehab can be a good option. This type of rehab helps the individual refocus on God and His purpose for our lives, which is important when working toward a change as drastic as recovery.
Addiction Devastates Lives
When someone is addicted to drugs or alcohol, their lives become controlled by substances. Drugs or alcohol become their form of entertainment, fun, relief, relaxation, medication, and comfort. Substances help ease loneliness, pain, discomfort, and anxiety. These substances become gods, as the person elevates their next high or good feeling above family, friends, and their Lord Jesus Christ.
This disruption of focus leads to a rapid downward spiral, as the person pulls away from their normal life and responsibilities and immerses themselves even more in the addiction. In order to break the cycle, it is necessary to help the person see the danger and destruction in their actions, and then work to end the substance use, implement healthy behaviors, and rebuild relationships. Christian rehab is an excellent way to achieve sustained recovery because it assures forgiveness of past wrongs and gives hope for the future. Faith-based recovery helps replace the addiction with healthy relationships with loved ones and with Christ. Through the love and forgiveness offered freely through Christ, an addict experiences true renewal.
Spiritual Counseling for Alcoholism and Addiction
Prior to coming to JC’s Recovery Center, clients found ease and comfort with drugs and alcohol. But with our Spiritual Counseling program, clients now find ease and comfort in the love of the Lord. It strengthens their relationship with Christ in order to fulfill His purpose rather than the desires of the flesh.
Typical drug rehab programs focus on physical and mental healing during recovery. Detox, healthy eating, therapy, and counseling are important to help the person cleanse their body and mind of the toxins that flood it during addiction. However, spiritual recovery is also a key to complete healing.
We believe that spiritual growth is equally, if not more, important than physical and mental treatment for alcoholism and addiction. At JC’s Recovery Center we offer spiritual therapy as part of a client’s treatment options. We find that clients who do not make a real effort at developing a relationship with a higher power have significantly higher chances of relapsing. It is no wonder why our facility puts a lot of emphasis on this aspect of recovery. With that in mind, we have developed a Spiritual Counseling program to help clients reach their spiritual goals.
Goals of Spiritual Counseling
The goals of spiritual counseling are to help clients build an intimate relationship with God and find purpose. The relationship with God is built through Bible study, prayer, and meditation, all of which open the lines of communication between God and His people. The more time an individual spends hearing God’s word and talking to Him, the better able they are to know God’s will for their lives and fulfill His purpose. We help those struggling with addiction overcome day-to-day obstacles by implementing spiritual tools like praying and turning to the Bible for guidance and comfort. Our clients journey through recovery knowing God is walking with them to grant support, comfort, and guidance.
Furthermore, with the help of God, clients can put into perspective their pain and grief. Those with a history of addiction often also struggle with other trials: dysfunctional relationships, abuse, neglect, trauma, insecurity, and anxiety. While we might never know the reason God allows certain experiences into our lives, we take comfort in the fact that God loves us and works all things for our good, even when we can’t see it. Faith-based rehab encourages the beneficial focus on the goodness of God and His perfect plan for His children.
It might be difficult to see it at times, but God does have a plan for our lives, and when we seek Him, He guides us to fulfill that plan. Christian rehab and spiritual counseling help the recovering addict find renewal in a sober life, based on God’s promise to forgive and provide healing and direction.
Faith Based Recovery Offers New Life
The road to recovery is not easy, and there will be slip ups and low points along the way. But by engaging in a Christian drug rehab, an individual becomes equipped to deal with temptation and triggers to use. In spiritual counseling, prayer is one focus. This approach helps clients learn that God is always accessible and they can attain the necessary strength to refrain from using drugs and alcohol when tempted. God understands the struggle, and along with His own guidance, He also provides caring treatment professionals, family, and loved ones to lift the person up when they are weak. The goal of a rehab program is to help the individual get back to a normal life and avoid relapse. When we focus on God and His will, this task becomes more clear and attainable.
If you or a loved one is considering addiction treatment, find a Christian drug rehab for recovery. Christian rehab incorporates detox for the body, therapy for the mind, and spiritual counseling for the spirit, all of which are critical for lasting recovery. JC’s Recovery Center offers a continuum of care and our focus is first and foremost on Christ and how His love and forgiveness are able to change lives.
