For many people, spirituality is often the same as religion. However, at Road to Recovery Wellness Center, we emphasize that patients incorporate spirituality into recovery from addiction. Figuring out how to incorporate your faith into your mental health journey can be one of the key challenges to addiction treatment. In our spiritual-based track, spirituality can create a solid foundation for one’s recovery. We provide spiritual nourishment and local activities to incorporate their faith into their mental and behavioral health treatment. These sessions can benefit adults of all beliefs and faith traditions and help them renew their sense of faith and hope in the midst of life’s most difficult challenges.
How Spirituality Can Help you Recover from Addiction
Some individuals rely on faith to provide awareness, cope with challenges, teach them to seek a calling, and show support for others in their community. Spirituality skill-building can include techniques to help one stay in the present, interact positively in the community, and have a guiding purpose. In reality, spirituality embodies all of these characteristics.
Spirituality is A Powerful Tool
When someone struggles with a substance abuse disorder, it’s the center of their life. They often feel as though they are in a rut. However, using spirituality to rediscover the natural self apart from the addiction is a powerful tool. At Road to Recovery Wellness Center, our therapists:
- Help you navigate negative thoughts and emotions and regain peace
- Reintroduce the importance of love for yourself and others
- Provide a touchstone for understanding the world
- Promote happiness
- Reinforce your sense of purpose
Choosing Gratitude In Recovery is a Spritual Practice
Another aspect of spirituality is being grateful. There are many ways to practice this in our daily lives. Clients can reap many benefits by practicing the following skills:
Improves your awareness of taking care of your health
Enhanced empathy for yourself and others
Clients are encouraged to make a list of what they’re grateful for and say thank you for the positive results that haven’t happened yet. Also, change “I should” to “I want”, even when considering the most mundane tasks.
