Can Christians Be Drug Addicts?

The road back from bondage

Are you or someone you love suffering from drug or alcohol abuse? Do you feel like they have sinned because of their inappropriate behavior? Maybe it is time to seek professional help. Drug addiction is not a sin it is a disease. Drug addicts and alcoholics need the same help as someone suffering from any other disease, such as cancer. We can help you or your loved one find their way back from the bondage of drug abuse.

How do I start?

The first step would be to search the internet for drug and alcohol rehabilitative programs in your local area. Make a call to several programs of your choice and ask questions about their facility. What does it cost, is treatment covered by insurance, how long will the treatment last, are some of the inquiries you should make. If you prefer a Christian setting find out if they offer daily prayer or religious services. Make an appointment to tour the facility.

What type of programs should I consider?

There are two types of detox treatment programs, inpatient and outpatient. With inpatient treatment, you live on the premises for some period of time, as determined by the intake counselor. Family visits will not be allowed at the beginning of treatment. As the patient progresses in their recovery they will be allowed limited family visits. This is because they will need to first, detox from the substance they were abusing and secondly, they will need to focus on their treatment plan, which includes learning new habits for daily living.

With outpatient treatment the patient goes to the facility several times a week for group therapy, meds, and one on one counseling. They are usually required to join a support group such as AA or NA, and attend meetings daily. Outpatient is a good fit for someone who works or must take care of a family.

What does it cost?

Detox treatment programs can run anywhere from fifty thousand dollars for an inpatient program to a small fee for outpatient treatment. Most rehabs have a sliding fee scale and also accept many types of insurance. Counselors will go over options for you and your family so that you can make a choice that is best suited to your needs.

What happens when treatment ends?

Treatment never really ends for addicts. As a continuing part of treatment cutting ties to old habits, friends, and places they used to frequent, is vital. Family support is essential at this time. In order to maintain sobriety, the twelve steps need to be followed and meetings can be a great support mechanism too.
