A spiritual take on addiction argues that addicts turn to substance or behavioral abuse to fill a void caused by a lack of religious spirituality in their life. Faith-based treatment programs attempt to fill this void by strengthening the individual's relationship with the higher power in their life in and rid the sufferer of their addiction.
Faith-based treatment programs combine the recovery process with religious-based components that are designed to strengthen the patient's relationship with faith while learning how to manage and recover from their addiction. Combining an individual's faith with the recovery process can help the chance of a full recovery from addiction.
Some treatment centers may offer religion-specific programs while others offer a non-secular program. If you or a loved one is seeking treatment and practices a specific religion, a program directed towards your religion can be implemented. If you do not affiliate with a specific faith, but are seeking a faith-based program to develop a more spiritual relationship with a higher power, a non-secular program may help to develop this. Both types of faith-based programs offer the same forms of detox, drug addiction education, and counseling, but are centered around religious themes.
Faith brings people together and faith-based treatment programs build strong relationships not only with your higher power, but with your staff and fellow patients. Religious patients typically experience a sense of closeness that is felt with others of the same faith and which can be very pivotal to their recovery. Friendships are built out of faith and such relationships can help while in treatment and even after treatment. It has been proven that individuals who seek aftercare, such as therapy, group therapy, and 12-step programs, have a lower chance of experiencing relapse by gaining the emotional support and education needed to properly recover and continue to live a sober lifestyle.
