Acknowledging and fighting addiction is a hard journey for anyone. Learning how to talk with family and friends about drug addiction can be stressful, but it is necessary.
Someone struggling with addiction who considers themselves religious has other unique obstacles to recovery. People of faith might wrestle with what it means for their spirituality to abuse drugs and alcohol while being unable to stop using.
As a Faith-based drug recovery center and programs NLFR INC address a recovering addict’s medical and spiritual needs. The spiritual element is a large focus of treatment, but traditional drug rehab techniques are also crucial. Standard methods like medically assisted detox and behavioral therapy are encouraged to help manage withdrawal symptoms and cravings, respectively.
As a Faith-based drug and alcohol treatment program NLFR allow addicts to include worship as part of their recovery plan. Spaces for prayer are available on-site to host religious services. Scripture readings, discussions and meditations are commonplace in faith-based drug rehabs.
