Christian drug rehab is addiction treatment that focuses on strengthening our relationship with God while eliminating substance abuse from our lives. It is human nature to be tempted to disobey God’s word, which is in place to guide us. As Christians, we must actively go against what our carnal nature tells us. Substance abuse is seen as sinning which interferes with our ability to connect with God. This interference prevents Christians from seeking a rehab to find relief.
Drug rehab programs that claim to have a Christian component may not really offer Christian addiction counseling. At Lakeview Health Systems, the core components of Christianity are an integral part of our Christian counseling program. Drug rehab staff must understand all facets of the salvation message to accurately treat addiction.
Finding fellowship and support from other Christians who understand the importance of your faith in addiction treatment will help you be more successful in finding recovery. Christian drug rehab is sometimes found as a specialized track within a bigger drug treatment center. The larger treatment center can address physical and psychological issues that contribute to your addiction while you receive spiritual support in the Christian recovery track.
Drug rehab program for Christians should incorporate your belief in God, biblical teachings that correlate with addiction treatment and encouragement of your spiritual connection and growth with God into your recovery process. God’s will for our lives is found in 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18: “ Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
Christian counseling for addiction treatment should help the Christian understand how to resolve substance abuse from a biblical perspective. Helping Christians make the connection between addiction, treatment and God will help them be more successful at remaining clean and sober after rehab.
