Faith and Recovery
“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” (Isaiah 41:10) Faith plays a central role in the recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. The comfort and security that faith and spirituality offers addicts in recovery is a priceless gift. Because of this, the popularity of Christian treatment centers has increased in the past few years, and recovery programs that emphasize faith, spirituality and the rebuilding of emotional health have become an integral part of the addiction treatment landscape. Many people who enter a Christian addiction treatment program have no faith background, but find themselves continually uplifted and encouraged by Biblical scripture and the love of God. The warmth and forgiveness that Christian treatment programs offer is a powerful tool in the recovery journey.
