Religion on its own is unable to prevent or cure addiction, but, in combination with science-based substance use disorder treatment, the belief and faith in a higher power can help people achieve–and hold onto–their recovery. Many of the risk factors that compel a person toward alcohol and drug use can be used to overcome addiction with help from medical, behavioral, and spiritual interventions. The search for identity, community, self-worth, and purpose among individuals can be found in religious gatherings and harmful peer groups.
For people who are seeking a deeper spiritual approach to their addiction recovery, we offer a faith-based track at our residential rehab drug and alcohol rehabilitation center. Using faith-based principles to help people break free of the bondage of addiction can be a life-saving approach. We welcome people of all religious backgrounds to our community. We do not preach a particular religious philosophy in our recovery workshops. However, we do use the Word of God in the Life Recovery Bible to provide guidance for overcoming obstacles and support our recovery.

Recovery Principles Based in Faith
Our faith-based recovery track at Rise Above is called “Building on the Rock.” In this program, clients are encouraged to spiritually reflect on themselves, their past experiences, beliefs, and goals. We use scripture to provide guidance to people struggling to overcome addiction’s grip. An important part of addiction recovery is being willing to open yourself to unexpected avenues of healing. We offer a faith-based track in each of the following programs:
- Inpatient rehab
- Partial hospitalization
- Outpatient rehabilitation
- Sober living
Clients receive individual therapy and participate in group therapy sessions in our spirituality-based rehab programs. In our faith-based treatment programs, God’s love and acceptance are emphasized to allow the recovering person can gather strength and find daily inspiration to break the bondage addiction to any substance.
Join Rise Above’s Faith-Based Track
Our faith-based addiction recovery track features knowledgeable Christian counselors at all levels of care. They have experience implementing and teaching faith-based recovery principles to those seeking spiritual growth. We understand how deeply important building a relationship with God can prove to be for many individuals undergoing the addiction recovery process.
What Clients Say About Our Faith-Based Program
Clients who have attended Rise Above’s faith-based track have discovered that it is often easier to practice forgiveness, surrendering, self-love, and living with purpose with the help of spirituality. These skills are essential for people in addiction recovery. We know having a purpose in life makes it more worthwhile. Many people who participate in this track feel more whole and connected with the universe.
The extended use of psychoactive substances fundamentally changes the thinking of an addicted person. Since we know that our thinking affects our spirituality, getting sober helps us stay mindful, grateful, connected, and cognizant. If you have developed a harmful dependence on a substance that is harming your health, spirit, dreams, family, relationships, and future, Rise Above can help.
Your relationship with your higher power will become stronger in your sobriety than you ever thought possible. Letting go of the fear and uncertainty will make room for something far more powerful. We know that a person’s genetic makeup, unhealed trauma, personal experiences, and absence of effective coping skills often point them toward becoming addicted to a substance that has the potential to destroy their existence. Renewing or discovering a relationship with your higher power also strengthens your recovery from the following issues:
- Substance use disorder
- Mental health concerns
- Anxiety and depression
- Polysubstance addiction
