A Specialized Program for Those Looking for a Higher Power in Recovery
A drug or alcohol addiction doesn’t have to define who you are and is not a reflection of the sincerity of your faith. At Recovery Centers of America, we understand the internal conflict of those who possess strong Christian convictions while also battling substance abuse addiction. You may be at a loss for where to turn for treatment, especially if you’re struggling with guilt and shame, and feel as though your faith community does not understand. You might also feel your addiction has damaged your relationship with God and that it needs to be rebuilt.
Much like RCA’s Breaking Free program for patients with trauma and PRISE for patients with multiple attempts at treatment, our Christian Program is a specific program for those who wish to incorporate faith into their addiction treatment. As a separate program from RCA’s regular treatment curriculum, our Christian Program offers an invitation to return to your Christian beliefs by embracing God’s love and acceptance. He is not moved by your behavior as much as He is relentlessly driven by His incredible love for you. God hasn’t given up on you and He isn’t disappointed with you – your struggles do not represent moral failure or a lack of faith. Addiction is a disease, and at RCA we treat your addiction through the integration of recovery principles and your beliefs. Whether you already have a strong standing in your faith, desire to explore your spirituality, or if you feel as though your faith has been lost, we are here to meet you where you are with encouragement and compassion.
Our Christian Program combines evidence-based treatment with Christian principles. Those who profess a strong religious faith or want to find their way back to their faith can bring their addictions into focus, make peace with themselves, and find meaning and guidance for recovery through their faith.
Entering our Christian drug and alcohol rehab isn’t based on the strength of your beliefs. Our program is immersed in Bible-based principles and standard concepts in addiction recovery, especially the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA).
Utilize Faith as a Driving Force Towards Recovery
RCA’s Christian Program incorporates the recovery principles outlined in the 12 Steps. There are many similarities between the 12 Steps and Christian principles, which our program emphasizes as a meaningful pathway to recovery.
Ordained ministers who are also experts in the field of addiction and recovery created RCA’s Christian Program to ensure the specific needs of Christian patients are met. However, the program isn’t religious in nature; rather, it’ll encourage a deeper and more fulfilling relationship with God, as guided by Christian faith and while respecting the wishes of individual patients to follow their own churches’ teachings. This is open to anyone who is searching for a more meaningful relationship with their creator.
Our evidence-based Christian program centers on four therapeutic cornerstones:
Christian Addiction Treatment
Here’s what the program looks like at a glance: Patients are assigned a Primary Therapist, who will provide individual, group, and family counseling. Every patient in the group counseling sessions will be voluntary Christian Program participants. The topics of the group and individual sessions will blend faith-based principles with the 12 Steps and help guide patients to Christian and moral values. Each patient will be assigned a specially trained case manager who will work with each individual patient to create an effective aftercare plan. This way, the patient can continue the good work they started in the Christian Program.
Patients will also be offered medical, nursing, psychiatric, and nutritional services, as these are essential elements to RCA’s mission of providing a holistic approach to restoring patients to a meaningful life in recovery.
In addition to Sunday worship services on site, which alumni and their loved ones are welcome to join each week, the Christian Program has enlisted the assistance of a number of churches in the local community that will provide on-site support for patients. Patients may also be eligible to attend services at nearby churches in order to strengthen their bond with recovery. Visits from patients’ clergy from home are also encouraged.
At Recovery Centers of America, we’re dedicated to our patients’ reaching meaningful recovery. We provide the tools and resources needed to reach recovery while repairing or growing your relationship with your Creator. Call us today and learn more about our addiction treatment services.
