Christian Faith-Based Drug Rehabilitation in Kentucky

Christian drug and alcohol treatment centers in Kentucky are a good way for people trying to overcome addiction and awaken their relationship with God. Many people are struggling with addiction and want to incorporate spirituality into their treatment and strengthen their relationship with God. Christian based rehab centers provide different treatment methods that are included with the spiritual teachings. For example, this includes evidence-based approaches like behavioral counseling, cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and individual or group counseling. Christian based programs also incorporate non-traditional approaches like wilderness and adventure therapy or holistic treatment.

An addiction assessment is a good place to begin when searching for Christian drug and alcohol treatment programs. The purpose of an assessment is to determine the extent of addiction and what treatment options are available to help the addict. Also, assessments can help determine if a Christian based treatment program is the right fit for the addict. No one form of rehabilitation is right for every person. Some of the treatment options offered by Christian rehab programs are education on spiritual principles and teachings, developing a relationship with God, participation in meditation and prayer, relapse prevention, and aftercare support. Christian treatment centers help patients physically, mentally, and spiritually.

Christian Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Kentucky and Long-Term Recovery

Some of the benefits of attending a Christian based treatment center is the opportunity for long-term recovery and remaining connected to sober groups. Most Christian based treatment centers provide 12-step support group, faith-based support groups, and other forms of peer support. Outpatient treatment programs that are Christian-based are also excellent aftercare support options. Substance abuse and addiction impact people from all walks of life. Countless families and individuals that are living in Kentucky struggle with addiction. According to a 2019 Annual Report, there have been changes in the types of drugs being abused. Between 2012 and 2019, there was a 78 million decline in the number of prescription opioids.

Additionally, the domestic production of methamphetamine has continued to decline. However, methamphetamine-related overdose deaths have increased from 25% in 2017 to 2019. All methamphetamine overdose deaths involve polysubstance abuse. Cannabis continues to be the most used illicit drug in the state. Overall, the abuse of prescription drugs along with heroin and illicit fentanyl remains one of the most critical public health and safety issues facing the state. Christian drug and alcohol treatment programs provide excellent options to help addicts and their families.

The rehabilitation process is the same, and it should start with detox, whether medical detox or a standard detox. Following detox, the next process of treatment involves inpatient or outpatient treatment. Regardless of the addiction, residential treatment provides extensive counseling and therapy along with focusing on physical rehabilitation. There is a benefit to Christian addiction treatment for those embracing a religious worldview. Patients are in a community of people with similar beliefs, and there are a strong fellowship and support because of the healing process.
