Put Your Faith in Willow Springs Recovery
No matter how it started, you are addicted to drugs. It may have started out as a doctor’s prescription for real pain that degenerated into a dependency on heroin. Or occasional social use of methamphetamines or marijuana at parties that became a daily need. Worse, your health may be deteriorating and you fear for your life if you don’t stop, but you can’t. You may feel weak and without hope, and not know where to turn for help.
But you aren’t weak. Drugs are addictive because they hijack your brain, turning your brain’s pleasure center against you, making you crave them even when your reason tells you that if you don’t stop you will lose your job, your friends, your family, your home and even your life.
There is hope. Help is available if you want it and ask for it. And, like your addiction, it is not one size fits all. It’s not only a matter of medicine or psychotherapy. It also can be a matter of faith.
What is Faith-Based Rehab?
Faith-based rehab is drug addiction treatment that incorporates your personal faith and religion, either in conjunction with or instead of science- or evidence-based therapies. It is available through most addiction recovery centers because a large portion of the population looks to religion for guidance on right and wrong – and even more so in Texas. Besides, there’s some evidence that faith-based rehab is more effective in the long run.
The most famous faith-based drug addiction rehab is the Twelve Steps program devised by Alcoholics Anonymous founders Bill W. and Dr. Bob Smith, later adopted by other organizations such as Narcotics Anonymous.
But the Twelve Steps alone aren’t rehab, nor do they claim to be. Twelve Step groups are support groups, fellowships, offered for free. Addicts meet in churches, libraries and other public buildings to acknowledge their addiction, share stories of relapse and triumph and bolster each others’ sobriety. They are a useful adjunct to rehab, and many rehab programs incorporate a version of the Twelve Steps. This means that when you’ve used the 12 Steps in rehab, you’ll be able to use it as a support system when you exit rehab. Some find that this structure is helpful to continued recovery.
Summarizing The Twelve Steps
The Twelve Steps are a process. The addict is asked to perform each one, in order, no skipping, before moving on to the next one. They can be restated as four basic tenets:
- Admitting to addiction and asking God (or some other greater Power) for help
- Taking a moral inventory of your faults and asking God to remove them
- Seeking to make direct amends to anyone you have harmed
- And, having had this spiritual awakening, working to help other addicts recover, too
To treat any addiction, you must admit you have a problem. Without that acknowledgment, no treatment will work in the long run. If you believe in God and often seek his guidance, to begin by asking Him for help with your addiction may be useful.
But true rehab, faith-based or otherwise, requires qualified medical and psychological staff to monitor your physical and medical health while you go through on-site drug detox and withdraw from the effects. Both your body and your mind may be so fragile from your drug abuse that, without monitoring, death can result. Some form of physical therapy – Pilates, hiking, swimming – and nutrition is also offered or mandated.

What Happens During Drug Addiction Treatment?
After detox, the real drug addiction treatment begins.
- Cognitive behavioral therapy: Your addiction didn’t happen in a vacuum. There was a reason you started abusing drugs. Sometimes a mental illness can lead to addiction, and sometimes addiction can cause a mental illness. CBT – an evidence-based, time-limited psychotherapy – can help you identify and treat the degree of co-morbid disorders, such as mental illness and addiction, if that is the case.
- Medical monitoring: Just as abusing drugs can put a strain on your body, so can getting off drugs.
- Physical activities: Hiking, swimming, gym workouts are all helpful in recovery, both as a distraction and way of making you healthier and happier. Exercising improves the performance of the heart and lungs, and activates the brain’s pleasure circuit (the runner’s high).
What Are the Types of Aftercare?
Since relapses are so common, aftercare is vital. In aftercare you learn skills that can mean the difference between failure and success, relapse and recovery, such as identifying, avoiding and coping with addiction triggers.
Basically aftercare is more therapy and/or support group meetings.
- Individual therapy: You meet one-on-one with a psychologist/psychiatrist.
- Group therapy: You and other recovering addicts together meet with a psychologist/psychiatrist.
- Narcotics Anonymous: A 12-step support group program similar to Alcoholics Anonymous. You meet with other addicts, tell your stories and struggles, and work the steps, including admit that you’re powerless over your addiction, turn your will and life over to the care of God or a higher power, and make a list of all persons you’ve harmed, and make amends wherever possible.
- SMART Recovery: Self-Management and Recovery Training is a non-12 step, secular support group, online and face-to-face, utilizing cognitive behavioral therapy techniques.
