The Bible is filled with parables about how to live a healthy life involving God. It also outlines how the enemy attempts to snatch victory from Christians. Christian addiction counseling in drug rehab is essential to help Christians begin mending their relationship with God. 1 Corinthians 4:6 in the Life Recovery Bible states, “For God who said, ‘Let there be light in the darkness,’ has made this light shine in our hearts so we could know the glory of God that is seen in the face of Jesus Christ.” Even the littlest amount of light dispels darkness. Addiction likes to be surrounded by darkness, so Christians turn away from God when they are actively using drugs and alcohol. Jesus does not turn his back on us, He is simply waiting for us to return to Him. God has put professional Christian counselors in place to help Christians overcome the bondage of addiction. We, as Christians, may need extra assistance and guidance to return to our intimate relationship with God. Lakeview Health Systems’ Christian addiction counselors offer support and biblical guidance throughout the addiction treatment process.

Topics Covered in Christian Counseling

There are areas that all Christians struggle with which substance abuse can make more confusing. Christian counseling in drug rehab incorporates your faith in God with learning how to eliminate substance abuse behaviors and thoughts. Addiction plagues the Christian person’s life and has 3 specific negative effects.

  1. Christians replace God with their substance of choice, like an idol.
  2. Addiction causes the Christian to feel temporarily like he or she is in control, replacing God’s control.
  3. A Christian addict’s fear-based behavior replaces faith-based behavior.

Lakeview Health Systems’ Christian addiction counselors help guide the addict through addiction treatment from a biblical perspective. Resolution of these 3 areas that have been negatively affected by substance abuse will help the Christian addict transition smoothly from drug rehab into long-lasting recovery.
