Although White Sands drug and alcohol rehab center welcomes people no matter what religious beliefs they may have, we do offer Christian treatment programs as a form of alternative treatment; these programs are especially suitable for people with a strong sense of Christian spirituality. If you are struggling with drug addiction or alcoholism, focusing on your faith may be an integral part of your recovery process.
Our Christian programs begin with an assessment of your needs and your personal situation, which helps us to design a customized treatment plan, maximizing your chances of recovery. If necessary, you will then be admitted for an inpatient medical detox; this process involves gradually weaning you off your drug of abuse in a careful, safe way. A dedicated team of doctors and nurses will constantly supervise your progress and help to minimize the discomfort of withdrawal.
After detox, you will enter a rehabilitation program, and it is at this point that the key elements of Christian drug rehab will typically be utilized. You can take part in the twelve-step program, which is strongly spiritual in nature. It allows patients to form mutually supportive bonds with other people at our drug and alcohol treatment center. Many of these people will share your religious beliefs and will most likely want to attend Church with you, which can provide great encouragement and decrease the sense of isolation that often comes with addiction. During group therapy, you will take part in prayer with other residents and will have a chance to discuss your experiences, your fears, and your faith.
In addition, you will be expected to undergo intensive psychotherapy on a one-to-one basis. This experience will help you to understand the roots of your substance abuse and place an emphasis on how Christianity can help you to cultivate new, healthier patterns of behavior that will aid you in overcoming your addiction in the long term. While an addiction counselor will conduct your therapy, you will also be more than welcome to seek advice and motivation from a pastor.
The cornerstone of our Christian drug and alcohol treatment programs is that your spirituality can be used as an invaluable weapon in your battle against addiction. Therefore, we will spend time exploring the ways in which the Bible can aid in the recovery process. Certain passages will be deeply relevant to your struggle, and may provide great solace during the more difficult moments spent at the treatment center. The Bible makes it clear that people are not perfect, and while you are in rehab you can work towards forgiving yourself for your past sins and moving towards greater faith in God as you attain sobriety. In addition, our rehabilitation facility is in a beautiful location, making it the perfect environment to conduct intensive self-reflection and attain a new sense of peace.
We also offer family programs that recognize and treat the damage that drug and alcohol abuse can cause to the loved ones of the addict. While you will be under no obligation to involve your family in treatment at our center, you will be free to do so if you want to move past relationship problems and cultivate closer bonds going forward. Part of our family programs involve educating your loved ones about the nature of addiction as a disease that has a profoundly negative influence on both mind and body, and this type of education can help family members come to terms with your past behaviors; it helps them recognize that they were not fully within your control.
When you are ready to leave White Sands, we will help to find the right form of Christian aftercare. For some, this will be a sober living community made up of individuals with shared goals and values, while becoming involved in local meetings for recovering addicts is sufficient for others.
