Christian Based Drug Rehab generally uses three methods to treat drug addiction:
- Faith-based drug rehab
- self help
- cognitive/holistic methods.
Faith-Based Drug Rehab
The faith-based method allows a believer or someone who has an interest in the teachings of Jesus Christ, to strengthen their faith and engage in a deeper relationship with God. By exploring and strengthening your Christian faith, it will allow you to maintain your recovery after treatment.
The elements of faith-based drug rehab method include the following:
- Guided Bible study with emphasis on scriptures to commit to memory
- Sermons and lectures by ministers and pastors that are specific to recovery
- Prayer sessions and meditation on God’s Word
- Christian 12-Step Program
- Attending church services
- Pastoral Counseling
“For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world- our faith. Who is the one who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.” (1 John5:4-5)
Self Help Christian Drug Rehab
This element of Christian based drug rehab involves taking a hard and honest look at our lives and what brought us to this time in our lives. We can uncover, discover and discard things in our lives that are keeping us from living the life Christ died to give us. Years of guild, shame and remorse are removed and we can see ourselves clearly through God’s eyes and His love. We can live a clean and sober life. It will take effort and there may be failures along the way, but there will be successes, too.
Recovery is personal. Choosing spiritual guidance will empower you and make this recovery truly your own. The goal is to discover your own recovery tools that will work best for you. Christian based drug rehab will enable you to find those tools and incorporate them into your life.
Cognitive/Holistic Methods for Drug Rehab and Recovery
In Cognitive therapy, the addict learns about their addiction and what has brought them to this point in their lives. We examine the choices that were made and what the effects of those choice were. By doing so, changes in behaviors and choice can be made to avoid making the same mistakes time and time again. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy teaches you how to deal with addiction and the emotions once the drugs are no longer there to cover them up.
Holistic methods for Christian based drug rehab may involve the following:
- The philosophy and spirituality of Martial Arts in terms of recovery
- Reiki Energy and Healing
- Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT)
