What does it mean to be a Faith-Based Treatment Program?

Faith Based Rehab“Faith-Based” is a broad term that can be used in many different ways. In fact, it can be so ambiguous that many don’t even know what it means. There are a lot of rehab facilities that claim to be faith-based simply because they allow their clients to privately worship their Higher Power or let residents attend religious services if they feel so inclined. Zion Recovery Center takes a different approach when it comes to faith and treatment. We boldly believe that God and Jesus Christ are the Higher Power that will help our clients overcome addiction.

Faith in Jesus Christ is the core value of Zion Recovery Center’s entire program. We firmly believe the only way to truly overcome the recurring pain, trauma, and the underlying issues that lead to substance abuse is to involve the teachings of Jesus Christ into our clients’ daily lives.

“And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me” (Psalms 50:15).

This does not mean we require our clients to study the Bible or worship all day long. We incorporate Christ and his simple yet powerful teachings into each group, individual, and family session. We include gospel principles in the program structure through daily prayer and the ability to worship at religious services on a weekly basis.

We understand that all of our clients have different levels of faith. We know that some clients have a strong relationship with God and Jesus Christ while others still wonder if they even exist. Because our group sizes never exceed 8 members, we are able to be flexible which allows us to individualize the amount of spirituality each member receives according to their need and want.

Because addiction is so powerful and difficult to overcome, it most often requires not only the help and strength received from one’s faith, but also help from professional and qualified individuals who offer lifesaving therapy through refined skills and practiced techniques. That’s why Zion Recovery provides the combination of professional therapy with the help that Jesus Christ offers through his Atonement. This unique combination gives those battling the disease of addiction the strength to overcome their struggles.

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16-17).
