The ravages of drug and alcohol addiction often take a physical toll on the body. Addiction specialists have known for decades that substance use disorder is a disease that affects the chemical structure of the brain, and the adverse effects of addiction – withdrawal symptoms, physical deterioration – are most noticeable on the outside.
Genuine recovery involves more than healing the body and coping with the adverse physical effects of the disease that can lead to a rehab program. Healing from substance use disorder is different for each person, but for the great majority of individuals struggling with addiction, a faith-based framework for recovery can be a highly effective way not only of getting sober but also of avoiding relapse.

Battling addiction is a difficult journey, and people of faith often have added religious obstacles to overcome. In many cases, for example, it might be more difficult for them to reach out for help because they feel that their addiction is a moral and spiritual failure or that they should be strong enough to overcome their addictive behaviors on their own. In others, they may feel that their family or spiritual community will judge them negatively. Individuals of faith are also likely to wrestle with the fact that their inability to stop using drugs or alcohol is a sin.
In such cases, it is important that they find a recovery program that addresses these concerns. In an addiction treatment center, individuals working to reconcile their faith and their struggle with addiction can work with professionals who can offer a helpful perspective.
