Drug addiction statistics ebb and flow, but overall, the numbers continue to rise, and over 20 million Americans are currently in the grip of a substance use disorder. Thanks to scientific research, many more evidence-based treatments for addiction are available now than 50 years ago. As writer and theologian C.S. Lewis once stated, you don’t have a soul; you are a soul. You have a body. Taking care of your body, mind, and soul, therefore, is critical. Faith-based addiction treatment centers around the country acknowledge that fact. Nearly three-quarters of addiction rehab centers in the United States include a faith-based addiction treatment option.

Faith-Based Addiction Rehab
More than 74% of US citizens identify with a particular faith tradition. Today, Christianity is one of the most widely practiced faiths. This religion focuses on belief in God and the role of Christ in their salvation. PAATC’s faith-based rehab is Christian-based and helps those who find solace in faith achieve sobriety, inner peace, self-awareness, and balance.
The framework of a spiritual faith tradition is both familiar and reassuring after years of substance misuse. In a faith-based rehab center, those who seek to reconnect with their faith or choose to explore the Christian faith for the first time will find some of the following:
- A program steeped in Christian values that are recognizable, comforting, and provide daily guidance.
- Faith-focused support within an evidence-based protocol provides the best of both worlds. Behavioral therapy, group sessions, peer support, and family therapy all involve an underlying faith-based philosophy.
- Christian role models and fellow travelers will offer you a listening ear and a shoulder to lean on. Your therapists, peers, and others you encounter in faith-based addiction rehab will all bring their faith to the table in fellowship with one another.
- Opportunities to engage in Bible study, prayer circles, and Christian discussion groups will provide extra support to your therapies within your religious addiction treatment plan.
Why Should You Choose a Faith-Based Rehab Center?
You will work with Christian therapists who adhere to principles that align with your beliefs from the minute you enroll. The first order of business in guiding someone through recovery is to provide them with medical support as they go through withdrawal. In a faith-based detox center, you can alleviate and mitigate your withdrawal symptoms with your faith, which will offer solace and peace over and above the careful monitoring and management of your symptoms by medical professionals.
After your body is free from all traces of toxic substances, you will begin the remaining part of your rehab journey. You’ll work with like-minded clinicians and therapists, as well as peers who are on the same recovery and spiritual journey that you are on. If this sounds both comforting and reassuring, let PAATC introduce you to the faith-based addiction rehab options available to you.
