What methods of treatment are offered at faith-based programs?

The particular method of treatment revolves around spirituality, and the person’s belief in a higher power to help guide them through treatment. Christian based programs work precisely in this way and will help a person strengthen his or her devotion and core values. Despite many different religious beliefs, the core values remain the same, putting one's faith in a higher power to help them through rehabilitation. Many believe that drug addiction not only impacts the person’s body and mind, but their individual spirit, and this is why faith-based programs can help. Along with rehabilitating a person physically and mentally, the person can rehabilitate themselves spiritually. Some of the traditional methods offered within these programs include group and individual counseling, cognitive or learning-based treatment, and holistic treatment. These methods are incorporated as part of the spiritual teachings that help an addict through any type of addiction.
