Christian Alcohol and Drug Program
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
Addiction is a chronic, progressive and fatal disease if left untreated. Drug and alcohol addiction tears families apart, ruins relationships and depletes our spirituality. You may be questioning how you got to this point. Perhaps you woke up this morning wondering how you would make it through another day using drugs and alcohol. Have you lost your connection with God because of your addiction? Are you looking for a Christian alcohol and drug program that will not only help you get sober, but also help you grow closer to Christ? If so, Road to Freedom may the best fit for you.
At Road to Freedom, we combine biblical principles with evidence-based practices to help our patients heal and recover. At our premier Christian alcohol and drug program, we restore lives through the power of the gospel. Our non-denominational approach focuses on the essential principles of Christianity, while also utilizing the 12 Steps and other scientifically-proven methods for addiction recovery. Our Christian drug rehab, accredited by the Joint Commission, has helped thousands of individuals to achieve and maintain sobriety, while growing closer to God at the same time.
What We Offer
Road to Freedom treats every patient with the dignity and respect they deserve. One of our goals is to provide you with comprehensive treatment options. While we incorporate best practices and proven treatment approaches into all our services, we also know that every person is unique and each treatment plan must reflect that individuality. Some services we can combine into drug treatment plans include:
- Safe, medically-supervised drug and alcohol detoxification: If your body is dependent upon any substance, you will need to undergo a medically-supervised detox. We promise that we will make the detoxification process as safe and comfortable as possible.
- Pastoral counseling: We have a team of pastors who provide spiritual counseling to help our patients grow closer to God.
- Group addiction counseling: Group therapy sessions can help you learn how to communicate and relate to others who are in a similar situation to your own.
- One-on-one therapy: Meeting with a therapist on a regular basis will help you get to the root of your addiction and any co-occurring mental health issues.
- Dual diagnosis treatment: Dual diagnosis is the condition of having a mental illness and a comorbid substance abuse problem. For example, if you abuse substances to numb your symptoms related to depression, you may have a dual diagnosis. Fortunately, we have a team of staff members that specializes in dual diagnosis treatment.
- Adolescent program: We offer an adolescent-only facility that treats teen boys ages 13-17.
- Biblically-based 12 Step meetings: We offer an introduction to biblically-based 12 Step meetings. You may come to find that the 12 Step approach is most helpful in achieving and maintaining your sobriety, while helping you grow closer to God.
- Family workshops: Addiction can tear families apart, which is why Road to Freedom offers family workshops as a way to help the entire family unit heal and recover.
- Court Liaison Program: While you’re in treatment at our Christian alcohol and drug program, our Court Liaison Program can help you manage any legal issues you may be dealing with, like mandatory drug testing, documentation and transportation to and from court appearances while in treatment.*
- Chronic pain management: If you are dependent upon drugs because you suffer from chronic pain, we can help you learn how to manage your pain without relying on narcotics.
- Holistic therapies: Depending on your specific needs, you may be prescribed holistic therapies designed to reduce cravings, minimize anxiety or sleeplessness, and/or promote relaxation and general wellness through a variety of holistic modalities.
- Relapse prevention: Our spiritual care team will teach you coping mechanisms and life skills that will help you identify triggers and prevent relapse.
- Inpatient Treatment: Our inpatient treatment program is an intensive, residential program where patients can focus solely on recovering from their substance abuse and any co-occurring mental health issues.
- Outpatient treatment: Research shows that the longer you stay in addiction treatment, the more likely you will succeed in long-term recovery. This is why we offer comprehensive outpatient treatment services aimed at continuing to heal the whole person.
- Aftercare services: At Road to Freedom, we provide extensive aftercare services to assist our patients’ transition into society and give them the best chance at long-term sobriety.
We are passionate about providing a clinically sound and biblically-based recovery program aimed at the whole person – mind, body and spirit. With the word of God as our guide, we help patients establish a solid and loving relationship with Jesus, the source of our hope.
The Need for Recovery
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.
Inpatient drug treatment services available
We work with individuals who are struggling with all types of substance addictions or chemical dependencies. Some drugs we have treated people for include:
- Other prescription pain relievers
- Other prescription sedatives
If you want to take advantage of these professional drug treatment services, call us today at (844) 402-3605. Our counselors answer the phone 24 hours a day every day, and all calls are completely confidential.
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."
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.
Recovery is Possible
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.
