People who start to become in tune again with their spirituality start to recognize the value of spiritual growth in connection with overcoming their addictions. These people who wanted to completely overcome the addictive effects of drugs would also like to return to their normal life with their families, career and friends.
Returning to one’s life before becoming an addict will be made easier with the person’s renewed faith and commitment to God.
Through the lessons and discussions in a Christian rehab program, a recovering drug addict will also learn how to foster his relationship with his family, friends and colleagues. He will learn the value of good relationships and will start seeking having godly relationships as is being described in the scriptures.
A person’s spirituality imparts in him a new kind of strength that will help him in battling his body’s cravings to take drugs. This strength will also help a recovering addict in staying away from situations and from people that tempt him into taking drugs. His renewed outlook in life will encourage him to seek new friends if his former friends influence him into working against his convictions.
Forgiveness & Compassion
Through a Christian rehabilitation program, a person is also taught about God’s forgiveness and providence. Passages from the Bible were read and discussed to fortify the person’s beliefs about the goodness of staying away from drugs and vices.
With his strengthened faith, the person will find it easier to remember these biblical passages during times that he is tempted to go back to taking drugs.
The person’s new found spirituality will not just work to his benefit but will also radiate to his family and peers.
