Title : Christian Drug Rehab By : Tom Thompson
If the problems you or a loved one suffers stem from problem drug abuse, you must accept that these problems are not primarily mental or free will issues. Addictions are not about will power. The problems facing addicts, alcoholics, and their families are miserable, disgusting, and infuriating. They are often hopelessly discouraging. But to imagine that an addict "could change if he wanted to" is a serious misunderstanding of the long term dynamic of addictive disorder. The fact is precisely that an addict cannot change in the long run even if he wants to! That is the definition of addiction: "the loss of control over the use of a substance." A visit to a Christian drug rehab program will prove that recovery is indeed achievable when spiritual principles are carefully applied.

The problem an alcoholic or drug addict faces is one of power. He must come to the place where he admits that he is powerless of his substance abuse and that his life has become unmanageable (Step 1, The 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous). In order to gain the power to reverse the ravages of the disease, one must find a Power greater than himself; a Higher Power.

A quality treatment program will offer a Traditional Track of spirituality taken from the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous. Often today, Christian drug rehab programs offer a Christian Track that parallels AAs Traditional Track and anchors the recovery principles in the biblical context from which they were derived. With millions of lives now claiming freedom in sobriety as a result of applying these steps and 75 years of success as an international movement, there can be little doubt that a deep and personal relationship with a loving, all-powerful God is the healing ingredient needed for suffering addicts.

Quality treatment centers typically offer a selection of programs; a primary program of approximately 28 days, a day program, an IOP (Intensive Outpatient Program), a transitional (step-down) program and often a long-term sober living program. It is important to seek out a program that is accredited by the state government and whose staff includes certified psychologists, medical professionals and case managers. Christian drug rehab programs offer spiritual support with specific curriculum and a staff of spiritual advisors and pastors.


Pacific Hills Treatment Centers, Inc. is a premier Christian drug rehab facility that offers both the traditional spirituality track based on the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous and a Christ-centered program for those who embrace the scriptures and Christ as their Higher Power.
