THERE IS HOPE

Living in active addiction may feel like your life is out of your control. In fact, coming to grips with the fact that your addiction is ultimately out of your control is a core tenet of the original 12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). In response to that admission, AA’s second step is to accept that a higher power can restore them.

A Christian recovery program will recognize that higher power as the God of the Bible, who has the power to heal, redeem, and strengthen you. Learn more about Christian rehab programs to decide whether it’s right for your recovery.

WHAT IS CHRISTIAN-BASED TREATMENT?

The message of the gospel has a clear value in the life of someone struggling with addiction. Through the Bible, Israel in the Old Testament and then the Church in the New Testament, struggle with the truth that man has fallen short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). No matter how many chances we get, we cannot obey God perfectly.

Though we may want to leave the life of sin behind for good, it seems to pull us back in. The apostle Paul sums it up like this in Romans 7: “For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing.”

In the same way, addiction can continue to drag you back despite your best efforts. According to the Bible, the solution for this disparity between humanity’s sin and God’s perfect holiness is Jesus Christ, who lived a perfect life and died, paying the price for our sin and giving us his righteousness. This redemptive message is true for people who have struggled with addiction, even those who have fallen into lying, stealing, and other things to maintain addiction.

Christian-based treatment programs understand the power of the message of the gospel in recovery. A Christian who is seeking addiction treatment can find a program that works with their specific needs, and anyone interested in the message of Christ and how it applies to recovery is welcome.

TREATMENT GUIDES

It’s not easy to find the right drug treatment center, especially when there are thousands of them available and minimal information on how to narrow the possibilities down to the best fit. Choosing the right rehab requires lots of information and answers to tricky questions many people have of the recovery process, such as the difference between inpatient and outpatient programs and how to pay for rehab.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?

It’s important to note that a Christian-based treatment program doesn’t mean you won’t have to work hard in drug treatment and behavioral therapies. However, it does mean that while you work toward recovery, you can also be working toward growing in your relationship with Christ. A counselor will sit down with you to determine the best treatment program for your specific needs.

Your program may have a combination of behavioral therapies, medications, or holistic treatments but you will also have access to a program that emphasizes Christian values and Christ-centeredness.

While you undergo drug counseling and behavioral therapies, you will also have access to Christian programs and studies. You’ll be able to dive into the scriptures to gain a better understanding of God through his revealed word. Bible study groups can help you learn more about God’s relationship with humanity and his plan for your life. Plus, the book of Acts shows how important community is in the Christian life.

Through a Christian recovery program, you can expect to form relationships with brothers and sisters in Christ who are also on the path to recovery. You can also form friendships with peers and mentors who share your goals and build you up in your efforts.

BENEFITS OF CHRISTIAN TREATMENT

Addiction puts a strain on many aspects of your life. Your relationships with family and friends, your job, and other positive pursuits may have suffered while you were in active addiction. It’s common for faith to take a back seat in the life of a person in active addiction as well.

At the sermon on the mount, Jesus spoke about the dangers of pursuing wealth saying, “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.” (Matthew 6:24)

The same can be true of addiction. When your thoughts are consumed with drug seeking, it can be easy to neglect other things. While you're in treatment, you will still have to put a few things on hold, like your career, but your relationship with Christ shouldn’t be one of them.

As you pursue recovery, you can still attend worship services, bible studies, and Christian counseling. But it’s not only about continuing to grow in your faith while you’re in rehab. The redemptive power of faith in Christ can have a direct impact on your pursuit of recovery.

HOW DO I KNOW IF THE PROGRAM IS RIGHT FOR ME?

It can be difficult to find a treatment program that’s right for you. However, if you are a Christian in need of addiction treatment or someone interested in Christian-based rehab, a Christ-centered recovery track might be your best option. The Bible calls Christians to live lives focused on Christ and the gospel and to continue to try to be more Christ-like. Through Christian counseling, you will be able to discuss your recovery and open up to someone who understands that major part of your life.

If you want the message behind the well-known John 3:16 verse, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life” to be a part of your recovery, a Christian recovery program is right for you.
