Christian Rehabilitation: It Helps Us Regain Control

Sep 9, 2008
Substance abuse is a situation which a person has the power to overcome. It does not have to continue. Reflecting on what causes it, what we need to do, and how drug treatment can assist us, is helpful for getting on the right track to recovery.

Addiction begins quietly. Shame and blame can contribute to addiction. As Christians, we are ashamed that perhaps we are not coping better with life than we are. We then blame ourselves and blame others.

Thousands and thousands of us every day want to be physically and psychologically healthy, but feel that we fall short of our goal. We want to be productive, contributing citizens.

Daily life subjects us to all kinds of rigorous torture, like job stress, urban stress, marital stress, existential stress, environmental stressors, economic stress, personal achievement stress. We want to be responsible and self-disciplined, but sometimes just the opposite happens and we end up with addiction problems in need of drug rehab.

Gradually, a person can drift into addiction.

Addiction itself is like falling down a bottomless well. It is frightening and terrifying.

We want our painful existence to improve, but keep on falling down the well. Drug use begets more drug use.

We know we can no longer continue our destructive lifestyle, yet feel powerless to crawl out of the well pit on our own.

That is where drug rehab comes into the picture.

Drug rehab offers new hope.

Our methods of coping are ineffective for curing our problems.

Drug rehab offers the opportunity to learn new modes of behavior and new skills for dealing with the rigors of daily life. We learn to overcome emotional problems and maladaptive behaviors.

We learn new proven skills of success and when to employ them.

We learn to establish and maintain successful relationships with others.

We learn to become a friend to ourselves.

How difficult is rehab? Drug rehab does require honesty and a willingness to turn ones life around.

Other than that, it is pretty easy.

In-patient hospitalization itself is actually a whole lot easier than living the life of an addict, knowing one could die at any moment from risky lifestyle and suicidal decision-making. You know what I mean?

Why choose a Christian rehab program? If available, Christian-oriented treatment programs make Christians feel right at home. They build on the whole foundation of Christian civilization. The Christian patient feels his Christian values are respected and supported.

Christian rehab may also offer coordination with your church during hospitalization, and after discharge.

The Christian in rehab feels supported not only by the compassion of the hospital treatment team, but also by his home church and the parishioners there.
