You’ve emptied the bottles, flushed the drugs. You’ve arrived at a moment of awakening. No more, you think to yourself. It’s time to get clean and make the most of this one life you’ve been given.
Whether this is your reality or a deep desire, you need to know that a sober life is more than possible for you with Christian-based addiction rehab.
Even if you’ve tried – countless times – to get clean, only to get tripped up by triggers that blindside you; even when you fall down, you keep believing that you’ll be successful this next time; even if, in the depths of your heart, you hardly believe what you’re telling yourself – God sees your plans and acknowledges your efforts.
Addiction is a relentless beast, and there is only so much healing you can do by yourself. Maybe you’ve thought of entering addiction rehab, or maybe you’ve already journeyed down that road only to find yourself using again. Is it time to try a different, life-changing route?
Even through the mistakes, the chaos, the sadness — God sees you and hears you, and He longs to pull you closer to Him. It may feel like your voice and prayers go unanswered sometimes, or that you’re deserving of your addiction and all that seems backwards in your life.
You are definitely not alone.
Sometimes you may not feel Him or you may be confused as to why it feels like He has abandoned you. He hasn’t. Sometimes, it’s just a matter of switching your mindset from focusing on what’s wrong to wholeheartedly focusing on what’s right; all that is good in your life.
In a Christian-based addiction rehab program, you never walk alone in your pursuit to rid your life of addiction forever.
Are you ready to commit yourself to Christian-based addiction rehabilitation?
Why a Christian-Based Addiction Rehabilitation Program?
Addiction is but an illusion. It fills us with a powerful false sense of hope that outside substances can make us feel alive; happy; whole. No matter how many times this illusion is lit up, it always fades – causing us to feel empty and fractured – anything but whole.
When you decide it’s time to save your life by entering a Christian-based addiction rehab program, you’ll be empowered to find the light and leave every ounce of your addiction behind you with the right support, medical attention and – most importantly – God’s guidance.
It’s important to note that Christian rehab centers are not all designed and run the same. In fact, all Christian rehab programs are bound to be different – from the individualized, Christian-centered care to the post-rehab support.
So how can you find the best Christian-based addiction rehab that’s established and credible?
To help guide you through your research in finding the Christian-based drug rehabilitation program for you, we’ve outlined three things you must take into account:
Christian Rehab Programs: How to Find One that Meets Your Needs
1. Look for a Christian-Based Addiction Rehab that has Top Licensing and Accreditation
With hundreds of national and local, inpatient and outpatient, addiction rehab programs across the country, researching different facilities can feel overwhelming and it can seem unclear as to what you should really be looking for.
The best place to start is with licensing and accreditation. The most established programs that are run by seasoned, experienced staff and faculty are always accredited by first-rate agencies and hold coveted licenses.
Think of it this way, a rehab facility that lacks credible accreditation probably means that the facility doesn’t have the staff, nor the resources, to meet your clinical, therapeutic and spiritual needs.
What Does Accreditation Mean?
Accreditation is the process that ensures rehab programs are delivering practices and procedures that meet strict requirements. In order to earn and uphold specific accreditations and licensing, rehab centers must work hard to remain up-to-date and to code. Thorough audits are conducted every few years to make certain a rehab center is still delivering the highest quality in clinical oversight, treatment and professionalism.
Look for these top accreditations:
- Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF)
- Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organization (JCOH)
2. Look for a Christian Rehab Center that has an Expert Treatment Team
When you enter Christian-based addiction rehabilitation, you are choosing to receive help and support to get you through some of your darkest hours and to celebrate with you in some of your most hopeful moments. Because addiction recovery is so demanding and complex, it’s vital that you surround yourself with addiction experts and licensed clinicians who will provide you with the most compassionate, personalized care you need.
Look for Christian-based rehab programs that boast acclaimed treatment teams that have years of addiction rehab experience. Additionally, for each staff member or clinician, be sure to look for:
- Years of experience in the substance abuse field
3. Look for a Christian-Based Addiction Rehab that has an Unyielding Commitment to Serve Christ by Serving You
In a different light, but perhaps equally as challenging and complex as addiction, faith is deeply personal and varies from person to person. When pursuing some of the hardest work you will do in your life – quitting your addiction and remaining clean – the Christian-based addiction rehab you choose should encompass highly compassionate professionals who follow Christ and strive to provide you with the love, understanding and care that Jesus demonstrated in his teachings and actions.
This involves personalization within the treatment plan and accommodations that invite a comfortable stay, so the only thing you have to worry about is your sobriety.
You may find that Christian-based addiction rehab facilities offer similar programs and therapies. But, it’s important to not settle for just any Christian rehab program.
Look for programs that intimately focus on healing your whole person – your mind, your body and your spirit, as well as:
- Personalized treatment plans
- Continuously updated treatment plans as recovery continues
- Low staff-to-client ratio
- One-on-one Christian counseling
- A safe space to restore your relationship with God
