A Christian rehab is a substance abuse treatment center that utilizes Christian beliefs and philosophies in the treatment and recovery of substance abuse or addiction. Belief in a higher power can be the deciding factor in the final results seen and make the difference between a permanent recovery and a short term measure that will not last. When you choose a Christian rehab your problems will be treated with compassion, and the staff at this type of program will never look down on clients because of the problems that they have. Christian teachings are followed and the entire staff shares the same principles and beliefs as the clients who are being treated. Tolerance of other faiths is part of the Christian philosophy but those who are not Christian may not benefit as much from this specialized type of program.
A Christian rehab typically offers spiritual counseling on a regular basis and religious services are available each week. The compassionate and caring staff truly care about each client as a person and they want to help. Fewer clients are in the residential setting at any time so that the staff has more time to spend with each client individually. The Christian rehab chosen should include several hours of individual counseling each week, and also address the spiritual wounds that contribute to the substance abuse or addiction. If spiritual wounds are left alone and do not heal then this can have negative consequences for the client in the future and a true recovery will never occur until the healing is complete.
