In order to truly get better, we have to tackle both the physical addiction, as well as the demons that brought us here such as, our life choices, our goals, and the things we value. Along the path to recovery, some fears and troubling questions might arise.
- What comes after recovery?
- Have I done too much wrong?
- What will I live for after addiction?
We won’t find our answers to these questions in a doctor’s office or a textbook on addiction. Instead, we have to find the answers ourselves by looking to God with the support of our religious peers.
In an ironic way, recovery itself can be a scary and unsettling notion because it represents the unknown. Don’t get me wrong, recovery is absolutely a good thing; it means freedom from addiction, no longer compulsively seeking out our fix, and truly connecting with the people around us. However, before we’ve seen it for ourselves, recovery is a big, vast, and eternal question mark in our mind’s eye. Since drugs have controlled our will and motivation for so long, we might not know how to take control ourselves.
Christian rehab facilities offer spiritual guidance and support for these challenges, something that goes above and beyond the general requirements of a secular addiction treatment model. Christian rehab facilities offer programming that is informed by the wisdom found in the Testaments and Holy Bible. You can expect opportunities to learn more about your faith, share support with other Christians in recovery, and develop your relationship with God.
