It is never easy to admit to oneself or loved ones that drug addiction has overtaken your life. It is more difficult to admit that drug treatment is the only way to regain control of your physical, emotional and spiritual health. Christian counseling provides drug addicts with every opportunity to make a fresh start without drug addiction as the main character in your life.
Drug treatment that is faith-based has become increasingly popular in recent years, simply because programs that incorporate Christian counseling are effective. These drug treatment programs empower addicts to take control and understand that with Christ’s love and grace, anything is possible.
Many addicts who enter a drug rehab program that uses Christian counseling have had little or no exposure to a faith-based community. Many have never surrendered their life to Christ, and find immeasurable strength in their decision to recognize Christ as their Savior. This gives them confidence and conviction to work towards a lasting recovery from their addiction to drugs.
The Bible says, in Psalm 31:14-15, "But I trust in you, O Lord; I say, "You are my God." My times are in your hands; deliver me from my enemies and from those who pursue me."
Through daily Bible study and prayer groups, participants in drug treatment programs come to understand that Christ will never forsake them. This makes the journey to sobriety much more meaningful and encourages addicts to confront their disease. Christian counseling has helped countless people addicted to drugs reclaim their self-esteem and confidence, while letting them know that their faith will follow them throughout the rest of their life.
Romans 8:28 says, "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." The success of Christian treatment centers shows that God can use any experience, even addiction, for the good of those who love him.
