13 Jan Faith-Based Recovery Programs
Recovery is fraught with self-doubt, self-loathing, and a seemingly endless struggle between our best natures and our worst. To some, recovery and life’s toughest moments are made easier by faith in Christ.
Many come to recovery with a strong Christian faith. The path of Celebrate Recovery uses the 12 step model but specifically states that Jesus Christ is the higher power needed to fully achieve recovery. Individuals who are strongly versed in the church and faith have an advantage to others in recovery. Their faith is a powerful foundation that can be called upon for deliverance from addiction.
Faith-based recovery programs have helped countless people bounce back from addiction by intertwining healing and belief. Faith-based recovery programs invite us to look beyond ourselves and contemplate the role God plays in our lives and deliverance.
Christian Recovery Programs
Redemption is a central tenet of the Christan faith. Focusing on ideals of forgiveness and an acknowledgment of sin, Christian recovery programs rely on community, prayer, and the Bible itself to strengthen our will on the road to wellness.
Through Bible study groups, we gain a community of like-minded believers dedicated to understanding the word of God and applying it to our struggles. In sessions alone with Christian counselors, pastors, and priests we’re guided through the tricky intersections of shame and pride, guilt and forgiveness.
Daily prayer offers a chance for meditation, while worship services further emphasize the aspect of “service” both within the faith and within ourselves.
At 4D we require residents to attend 90 recovery meetings in the first 90 days. Those on the Christian path can use church services, church small groups, and Celebrate Recovery meetings to count as a recovery meeting. Residents are encouraged to lead a bible study with other like-minded residents. We have seen the power of faith and we encourage those on the path to go deeper in their faith. Recovery can be the catalyst that challenges us to have a closer walk with God.
Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered, 12 step recovery program for anyone struggling with hurt, pain or addiction of any kind. Celebrate Recovery is a safe place to find community and freedom from the issues that are controlling our life.
How can Celebrate Recovery help someone find sobriety? Celebrate Recovery is a Biblical and balanced program that helps us overcome our hurts, hang-ups, and habits. It is based on the actual words of Jesus taken from Matthew Chapter 5. Celebrate Recovery believes in providing a place for the broken to come and face the pain in their lives. The practical principles are designed to help others find an authentic relationship with Jesus Christ.
Through Celebrate Recovery, you will come to believe there is only one solution. You accept Jesus Christ as your Higher Power and follow His plan for my life. You will work through the 8 Recovery Principles found in the Beatitudes. With Jesus Christ as the Higher Power, you can and will change!
As you draw closer to your Higher Power, Jesus Christ, you will learn how to apply the 8 Celebrate Recovery Principles and 12 Steps, designed to guide you in this journey we call “Recovery.”
If you are diligent to provide willingness, integrity, consistency, and rigorous honesty, God will supply you with the courage, strength, and ability to take the necessary steps to gain freedom from unhealthy behaviors. This journey happens in the context of groups and others on the recovery journey.
