Throughout most of the Maritimes and in the province of Newfoundland, drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs are not always readily available, but the Teen Challenge drug and alcohol treatment center in the province does provide a Christian-based drug rehabilitation service. Faith-based programs help addicts renew or strengthen their faith and religion and help them use that to overcome their addictions and substance abuse problems. Drug and alcohol rehabilitation is offered through residential programs and also outpatient services, all of which are able to treat men, women, and adolescents who are struggling with addiction. Many different treatment methods are used, but in faith-based drug treatment programs, the Christian faith is used to help back the drug treatment methods and provide added support and help. This is commonly found in twelve-step programs, where addicts use their faith to work through the twelve steps of addiction treatment and work on maintaining their sobriety, while in the process of helping other people.
