Rehab programs that put an emphasis on religion are not a new way to treat an addiction. In fact, one of the first ways that addiction was successfully treated was through the Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) program. AA’s focus has always been on the power that religion has in the process of healing from an addiction. Today, you can find a faith based drug rehab such as the programs that we offer at Legacy Healing Center.
Our faith based drug rehab uses religion and faith in a higher power to bring about profound healing and acceptance. Addicts that are religious often face additional challenges when in recovery because of the strained relationship that they have with God; they often feel like they’ve disappointed God through their abuse of drugs or alcohol. As such, healing them through faith and God’s teachings can help to repair their relationship with God and improve their recovery.
Legacy Healing Center’s faith based drug rehab in South Florida is not just limited to one faith; anyone who believes that they can benefit from spirituality or other religions in recovery can take advantage of the healing that such a program can offer.
Christian drug rehab is not just about using faith as a means to heal from the problems of addiction; we still make use of the best in evidence-based treatments that are proven to be highly effective tools in addiction recovery.
Along with a focus on spirituality, we also provide all of the core parts of our treatment programs at our faith based drug rehab. To start, an addict that has just joined our program can expect to be a part of a medically-assisted detox. The withdrawal symptoms that are synonymous with drug and alcohol dependence can be easily handled in a safe manner in our medical detox program. We utilize the best-performing FDA-approved medications to help treat and manage the symptoms of withdrawal.
Our faith based drug rehab provides a place to have discussions with pastors and healthcare professionals alike, and many of our healthcare professionals will also incorporate religion in individual and group therapy where warranted. Some of the common evidence-based programs that we offer include cognitive-behavioral therapy, family therapy, process therapy, and dialectical behavior therapy.
Essentially, you are getting the best of both worlds; the power of faith-based healing and the evidence-based therapies and holistic healing approaches that are effective ways to beat an addiction. For this reason, people tend to greatly benefit from our faith based drug rehab.
Faith gives a person in recovery something to focus on, and even something to make their life about if they choose to. Whatever way that faith based rehab helps a person, it’s clear that there are many benefits of Christian drug rehab for those who wish to improve their relationship with God as part of their recovery process.
Our spiritual counselors will spearhead group meetings for those who are interested to restore their relationship with God, and to learn about what the bible can teach us about addiction. Christian advisors are always available if you’d like to talk to them about any matter that may be concerning you.
Absolutely beautiful! Staff is so caring and welcoming. Highly recommend to anyone who is struggling and looking to heal. This is the place for you!
Legacy really changed my life for the better. I was down and out, my life in shambles and didn’t know what to do. Legacy showed me there was a light at the end of the tunnel and gave me the tools to get there. The staff at this facility are genuine and truly care and it shows.
Kaleb was well on his way to being another death sta-tistic victim to Heroin addiction. God led us to Legacy Healing Center. They treated him with love and respect. Showing true concern and patience. Kaleb is a life saved. He is thriving and making positive life choices. His potential is unlimited!
Wonderful staff, the treatment program was excellent. They really treat you like family here and genuinely care about you. The 4 months I’ve spent here have been great, I’ve learned a lot about myself and ways to cope with my struggles.
I’ve been to a few treatment centers and this one is by far the best from the living quarters to the clinical and therapeutic experience. 5/5 would recommend. They continue to reach out and stay in contact.
Legacy Healing Center saved my life. The entire staff focuses on every individual as a separate case. No one is left behind. I wouldn’t be here without the staff at Legacy.
Honestly, it’s not what you imagine when thinking “detox.” Legacy made my experience so comfortable from beds, food, staff and such a clean facility. Besides all that they literally gave me life back. Forever thankful.
It is known that, according to research such as by Baylor University, religion can help to reduce drug and alcohol abuse. A faith based rehab is ultimately different from a normal rehab program not by what it offers, but rather by what you get extra on top of what a standard rehab program offers you for addiction treatment.
One aspect that traditional rehab doesn’t fully explore and treat are the spiritual needs of patients in recovery. As such, a difference between faith based treatment and standard treatment is that Christian rehab provides more support spiritually, helping those afflicted by the disease of addiction to find solace in God, which can improve the overall healing process of recovery.
It is believed that the reason why many people turn to drugs or alcohol is because they are actually trying to fill a hole in their heart that can only truly be filled with the love of God. Seeking drugs or alcohol is in fact the desire to find God and to deepen your faith.
One of the key elements of AA is to understand that as an addict, you are powerless to control your substance abuse, and it is through a Higher Power that you can be guided to a full recovery. Letting go and allowing God to guide you can be a profound experience, and the reason why many recovering addicts have renewed their faith in recovery.
The bible has many important lessons for life. There is substantial guidance concerning addiction and the problems that one faces with the disease, and what should be done in order to overcome it. Among the most notable verses in the bible that talk about addiction include the verses below.
In Ephesians 5:18, the bible talks about how one should not get drunk on wine because it causes negative problems in your life. Instead, you should fill yourself with the Spirit.
In 1 Peter 1:13 the bible reminds us that we should strive to be fully sober and that we should set our faith and hope in Jesus’s return.
Furthermore, in 1 Peter 5:8, the bible says that we should always be sober and alert because the devil is always prowling, looking for weakness to devour. In this sense, a person should always continue with their addiction maintenance in order to prevent future relapse.
Fort Pierce, FL, is home to many fantastic churches and Christian communities. Among the most notable include the Westside Church, St. Anastasia Catholic Church, and the First United Methodist Church of Fort Pierce, Florida.
