Having Faith in Recovery

Developing faith may seem impossible, especially for someone who has led a difficult life. Watching people develop faith–sometimes for the first time in their lives–is a beautiful part of working at Solution Based Treatment and Detox. For some, having faith in recovery is essential. It provides a foundation for healing, forgiveness, and self-worth. At Solution Based Treatment, we offer a faith-based treatment option that may enable some to find their best way forward.

Is Faith in Recovery Necessary?

Some treatment methods focus on religious views and expectations. For example, the 12-Step program created by AA is a faith-based treatment. Within it, a person works to rely on a Higher Power to support their healing and seeking forgiveness. The goals they create are structured around meeting the expectations of forgiveness and abiding by faith-based beliefs. This is a very effective program for many, which is why it has become such an important part of many treatment programs. 

Yet, you don’t have to believe in Catholic or Protestant beliefs. You can follow any religion that feels right to you. Or, you can trust in no formal religion and focus on a power that’s higher than you and based in nature. While faith is not a requirement for addiction treatment, it is one tool many use.

What Happens When You Have Faith in Recovery?

Using faith principled to overcome the bondage of addiction is one key reason to invest in a spiritual approach during treatment. There are simple things within this type of treatment program that make a difference, such as:

  • Knowing that you are welcome, no matter your history, pain, use, or other perceived weaknesses 
  • The ability to choose your own religious beliefs without judgment 
  • Opportunities to learn about the Word of God and interpreting it to fit your life
  • Creating opportunities to accept yourself for who you are
  • Building confidence in your ability to overcome struggles 

These programs are not designed to be lectures but opportunities to learn the “why” and “how” components of an addiction treatment program. For some, that first few days of treatment can feel impossible, but relying on a Higher Power ensures a path forward. 

For many men and women struggling with addiction, knowing there is acceptance and love from God available to them is healing in itself. Many come from paths they are ashamed of, trauma that impacted every facet of their lives, and physical complications that make getting up each day hard to do.

In this type of faith-based treatment, your past doesn’t matter as much as your future. When you embrace treatment, you learn how to forgive and surrender. You find purpose in your life. Many use this as one of the best tools to help them remain sober long term.
