Addiction In The Christian Church

In the year 2019 we are experiencing more addiction than ever before.

We try to stand by the scripture “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord,” but the world is a broken one and pain and strife can break down even the closest of families and consequently congregations. Most addictions are hidden from plain sight while attending services together but the toll that it takes when lives unravel pulls the church apart from it’s very seams. Typically addictions came about as a way to cope with common mental health disorders including depression, anxiety, boredom, impulsivity, trauma, and more. There is usually a pay off at first as the addiction may feel better then our true feelings. When addiction becomes the path that we prefer instead of handling life issues, our lives slowly become destructive. False beliefs and self sabotage slowly wear at our lives until our addictions become habitual as if they are a part of who we truly are. They are not, and there can be freedom from them as we are “in this world, not of this world,” and we believe in renewal and salvation.

11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)

Praying for a loved one who is an addict? You may need our support as well.


Praying to be saved from Addiction? Residential Treatment is the most effective solution.

Why does Valiant Recovery provide Christian faith based Recovery when dealing with Addiction?

About Valiant Recovery Inc.

Valiant Recovery is a Christian organization founded on the belief that God has “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”  Our passion is to see others not merely helped, but truly set free.

Valiant Recovery has been coming alongside our clients for over 10 years and successfully and treating  the roots behind addictions. Our recovery teams across our residential treatment programs are passionate about recovery and seeing families healed and restored. They know there is hope for anyone struggling with addiction as well as mental health issues. We are dedicated to spreading the message that “Recovery is Possible”. The caring compassionate setting at Valiant Recovery is the ideal environment to foster healing.

If you or a loved one is seeking recovery from addictions we have 3 locations that are here to help you depending on your need for specialized treatment, level of care and affordability as well as if you are in eastern or western Canada.   We have noticed that some clients prefer to go to a treatment center near their current location and some would rather use it as a retreat and fly across the country. Give it some thought to what may suit your circumstances.

All locations also offer mental health solutions in a residential format, but to best address underlying mental health issues, we suggest either our Valiant Recovery Luxury Program in Kelowna BC or our Valiant Behavioural Health Program in Ottawa Ont.  The breakdown of the programs are following:

  • Valiant Recovery Luxury Intensive Residential Treatment Program (Kelowna BC)
  • The Crossing Point Affordable Treatment Residential Program (Kelowna BC)
  • The Valiant Recovery Ottawa Addiction Recovery Residential Treatment Program (Ottawa ON)
  • The Valiant Behavioural Health mental health Residential Program (Ottawa ON)

How does Valiant Recovery provide Christian faith based Recovery when dealing with Addiction?

Christ oriented individualized one on one counselling: Individualized counselling is the backbone of our programming at Valiant Recovery. Valiant provides up to 48 individual private sessions per month. That being said the best counselling comes from someone that truly connects with empathetic listening and their heart is in the right place. Our counselling matches the psycho-educational evidence based addiction recovery model with a faith centered approach of prayer and deliverance.

Christian centered group work: Our group work has a Christian orientation. It is important in the recovery process for the client to make connections with their peers and begin to understand the consequences of their addiction. It is also a powerful tool to find identification and similarities with others, as an important element for gaining insight into self. With addiction, people often say they feel alone and isolated and that no one else can feel this bad. Group therapy is there so they begin to know that they are not alone in this battle. Adding the component of God to group work leads to more vulnerability, deeper relationships with others and a deeper relationship with self.

Morning Reflections and Affirmations: Starting the day calmly and in gratitude and reflection is a powerful way to get the healing power of prayer to work for you. You will be asked to read aloud a daily reflection and to reflect on how it may show insight in your life.

Church services: As a client you will be able and encouraged to visit local church services situated in Kelowna BC. Some of these services may range from attending large scale churches that offers large stage performances to smaller more intimate modern church settings that focus on music as praise and prayer for each other.

AA meetings: As a client you will encouraged to attend AA meetings regularly. As a Christian it is a place for fellowship with other recovering addicts. Most people in the program revere AA’s Big Book as God inspired and it is an exciting part of your recovery to share your sobriety and healing. You may also be able to find some support in the group and when you return home you will be set up for success as you will have already connected and practiced what it is to attend AA meetings.

Prayer at meals: Being thankful while eating nutritious staff prepared meals is a great way to keep your mind on the positive aspects of recovery.

Genesis: This is a program that our staff has been certified in. It has powerful healing effects and it tries to free you from falsely held beliefs. It will help you question your false identity and accept your true nature. You will go through a life history and release traumas and it will show you that certain dead ends come from the lies that we have accepted as truths.

Our Goal at Valiant Recovery:

God created everyone with a purpose. Our desire is that you would fulfill your God given purpose in life, living your life to its fullest. Life is not just about you, but also about what you can do for others!!! We believe that you may be living out the lies that others have told you about yourself or the lies you told yourself to cope in a world that can seem harsh and cold. We want to reignite your passion for life and to help counsel you through your journey to recovery and beyond.

14 “For lack of guidance a nation falls, but victory is won through
many advisers”.
Proverbs 11:14 (NIV)

Let us help you with the stressors that are causing the addictions:

Our intensive inpatient treatment program gets our clients away from their stress triggers and normal addictive routines so they can change their lives. Choosing our Residential Treatment Programs should be viewed as a choice to love yourself or the loved one that you care so much for. It is a choice to consciously and willfully head in a new direction. The results from our program speak for themselves.

25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?” 26 “Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? “27 “Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?” Matthew 6:25-27 NIV

Staff: Our staff come a diverse set of Christian backgrounds that understand that every client has a back story that is as original and unique as their own. The benefit of having staff that is faith based in a treatment setting is one of compassionate care and that of service orientation. Our staff also understands addiction and knows when to draw boundaries, challenge clients, and encourage clients to see things differently. We value balancing support and guidance with honesty and responsibility. Our staff want to empower clients, but also want to be honest with them when they are using old behaviors that no longer work for them. Our staff pray for clients and pray with them in times of need.
