Christian Inpatient Rehab
In 2014 alone, more than 1,700 Americans aged 18 to 25 died from prescription drug overdoses, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse. That’s around 5 people in that age bracket each day, and that doesn’t include individuals who died from overdoses in other age brackets or from illicit drugs such as cocaine or heroin. Clearly, these statistics illustrate a wide-spread issue of drug use and addiction in the United States, and those issues don’t discriminate according to religion.
Substance abuse disorders can impact almost anyone of any age, race, location or income level, and being Christian doesn’t make you immune to drugs or addiction disorders. Medical science is still working to understand addiction, but we do know that drugs and other substances work chemically within the body. Those changes can make your body dependent on substances, and while some people might be more susceptible because of history or genetics, anyone can fall prey to addiction.
Christians often tell one another that coming to Jesus and praying can get you out of addiction. While the Roman road to Salvation is very true, and “there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus” (Romans 8:1), it’s important to remember that salvation is not the same as a drug-free lifestyle.
Even as a Christian, you might need professional help overcoming drug use and seeking a life free of drugs. If you are dealing with the addiction cycle or you can’t stop using drugs on your own, don’t keep praying and waiting to hear from God. He might have already sent you help – this might be your option for help. Call us now at (844) 402-3605 to find out how you can begin your road to recovery.
Christian residential drug and alcohol treatment
Christian residential drug and alcohol treatment is an inpatient program that includes a variety of treatment options. Depending on what drugs you are struggling with, you might start with a medically assisted detox that helps you stop using substances safely and more comfortably than you could on your own. Counseling, therapy, and other treatment methods also ensure you can approach your addiction with a comprehensive plan.
What is inpatient rehabilitation?
Inpatient rehabilitation does mean you live in the facility 24 hours a day for the scope of your treatment. We realize this might sound scary and can be an enormous inconvenience for many people. You might have school, a job, social obligations, church obligations or other reasons you wouldn’t want to spend time in a residential treatment center.
In 2 Corinthians 12:9, we are told that God’s grace is sufficient, and Christ’s power is made perfect in our weakness. It’s true that God wants us to have abundant life even before we pass into our eternal life with him, but while he promised sufficient grace, he never promised convenience or ease. Life, unfortunately, is hard, and drug addiction makes it even harder.
By seeking to “protect” your job, relationships or social standing by not entering inpatient treatment, you risk those things with drug use. Instead of losing all those things permanently because of drug addiction, you can put them on hold just a short time while you get help.
Inpatient care comes with a number of benefits. First, you separate yourself temporarily from the world – the same world which, for some reason, drove you to drug use. You reduce the number of triggers and stresses you face daily, which lets you concentrate more on identifying underlying issues and working with counselors to develop healthier coping mechanisms. In an inpatient drug rehab, you also have access to caring staff 24 hours a day, something that’s impossible with other treatment methods.

Christ-centered counseling can make a difference
You can’t always pray yourself out of the addiction cycle, but prayer and faith can be strong allies for those who are battling substance abuse. Our Christ-centered counseling sessions, Bible study, and pastoral care all help you grow in your relationship with Jesus and strengthen your faith so you can readily rely on them as you re-enter the regular world again.
We combine faith with medical and behavioral therapy approaches to treat your mind, body, and soul, since drug use and addiction attacks all of those areas.
Moving beyond residential treatment and into the future
“I lift my eyes to the hills – where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.” Psalm 121:1-2
The Psalmists struggled with mighty issues. King David, who wrote many of the Psalms, faced the possibility of being murdered by foes on a regular basis, and that was on top of being the leader of an entire nation. Still, these writers knew where to look for help. Help comes from God – and sometimes help comes through people who God sends into your life.
We believe the Road to Freedom acts in that capacity for the individuals we treat, but we know that we can’t be by your side throughout all of life’s journey. That’s why we help you connect with other people who can support you as you transition from inpatient treatment to outpatient treatment or aftercare.
Stop walking this road on your own. Accept the help that God has made available to you. It only takes a single phone call. Call us today at (844) 402-3605.
