Drug Rehab Helps You Find Relief in God

Forgiveness and ReconciliationChristians unplug from God while using substances in an effort to feel less shame and guilt for their addiction. Christian addiction counseling begins with asking for and receiving forgiveness from God and allowing yourself to be reconciled to Him while in drug rehab.

  • Forgiveness
    • 1 John 1:9 in the Life Recovery Bible states, “But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness.” God forgives our past, present and future, but this does not give Christians a free pass to sin. We must attempt to abide by His word on every day.
  • Reconciliation
    • Addiction to drugs and alcohol influences Christians to go against what they know is right. Seeking forgiveness for questionable actions and for relying on substances rather than God is the first step to making changes. Righting your path with God will help you tremendously during addiction treatment in drug rehab. Reconciliation means that we have become a part of God and are no longer opposed to him.

We Are Saved by Grace

In 2 Corinthians 5:19, the Life Recovery Bible states “For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them. And he gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation.” Jesus made the ultimate sacrifice for our sins so that we never have to be apart from Him again. Although Christian addicts may not behave in ways that are pleasing to God, He does not separate himself from them.
His love and acceptance are unconditional and His ability to heal is real, if the addict is willing to accept His help. Addiction to drugs and alcohol influences Christians to go against what they know is right. Seeking forgiveness for questionable actions and for relying on substances rather than God is the first step to making changes. Righting your path with God will help you tremendously during addiction treatment.
