Change the way you think, do and feel; or DIE!!

Upon first glance of this title, you may be thinking to yourself that this is a really harsh statement. Unfortunately for the majority of most addicts, this heading is all too real as death becomes the only solution to their problems. Anxiety and fears only heightens for the addict as the pain of change freezes the addict like a deer in headlights. Besides the medical explanation of the “disease” model of addiction; this fear of changing is exactly what keeps the individual suffering from a life-threatening drug or alcohol problem…“STUCK”. Is doom and gloom the only possible outcome for the addict? If addiction is a disease and hope seems so far away, what is the solution to such a devastating situation? Beyond the absolute need...


6 Things Your Loved One Needs to Hear During The Christian Addiction Treatment & Recovery Process

Understanding and supporting a loved one’s battle with addiction and path through a Christian treatment & rehab can be a difficult task. As much as you would like to relate, it’s simply impossible to feel the full gravity of their situation if you yourself have not battled addiction. Although at times it may seem like your support efforts are unwanted and ineffective, they mean more than you’d ever know. If you’re a supporter who is lost in your attempts to show compassion and facilitate the recovery process, you’re not alone. This is something that proves difficult for almost every supporter. While every situation will require its own unique attention, there are several commonalities that can be identified in most Christian drug rehab and recovery cases. These...


Another Relapse! Why Should I Forgive Them Again?

Feelings of depression, shame, self pity, and apathy constantly plague an addict leading them to live in very dark and miserable places. Using seems to temporarily alleviate these feeling, but as the high fades out, it is quickly replaced with negative emotions that creep deeper into their heart and soul causing the darkness to be intensified and stronger than before. This often causes addicts to go on destructive benders and binges in order to chase a high for another temporary relief in order to  feel normal or some kind of happiness.This dangerous cycle is usually followed by feelings of intense guilt that is potent enough to make an addict never want to go down that path again. This is usually the time when your loved...


Fight or Flight

As I think about times I have faced fear in my life a number of things come to mind. The fear I had the first time I pointed my skis down a snow covered hill, fear I felt standing on top of a red covered cliff above the water just before jumping, the fear I had as I walked up to ask a beautiful girl to dance, and the fear I had as I drove my first son home from the hospital. There are many fears we face in life on a daily basis. Fear is something that most people dread. The feeling that comes over our whole body that makes the hair on our neck stand and a lump in our throat form, is something...


10 Benefits of a Christian Outpatient 12 Step Program

Outpatient Christian treatment is a fantastic choice for those who are seeking their first source of help, as well as for those who have already completed an inpatient program.

Daily Personal Inventories

Taking Inventory and Keeping Fit   Step 10 from Alcoholic Anonymous states, “We took moral inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it”. It is important that we evaluate whether we are “Staying Fit” in our recovery on a daily basis. One simple tool that we can use to gauge how we are doing is to do a physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual inventory each night.   Physical: What am I doing to take care of myself physically?  Am I eating healthy? Am I exercising regularly?  Am I practicing good hygiene?  How do I feel about myself physically?  What can I do to improve tomorrow?   Emotional:  What am I doing to take care of myself emotionally?  Am I sharing my emotions with someone who is healthy and safe?  Am I...


Small Group Sizes Help Improve Sobriety

We know how important it is to help our client feel comfortable enough to open up and disclose their personal trauma. Trauma that is also known as an underlying cause is usually a key factor that keeps you or a loved one’s addiction alive. Discussing, processing, and overcoming the underlying causes of addiction cannot always be done in a large group setting because more often than not, it is a very painful and emotional task. Small group sizes allow our clients to feel comfortable enough to discuss their personal trauma that they have kept hidden for so long. This openness then allows us to better treat them with a loving, specialized, and individualized approach. Drawbacks of Large Group Therapy Small groups can prevent members from getting lost...


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

“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. Our Christian Recovery Center takes a different approach when it comes to faith and Christian 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 our Christian Recovery Center’s entire program. We firmly believe the only way to truly overcome the recurring pain, trauma, and the...


What is Christian Family Therapy?

Our Christian Recovery Center firmly believes that as the family attends our family program and begins to heal, so too will the addict. This is due to the family’s newly learned ability to set and hold boundaries, which will hold their loved one accountable on a regular basis. We also understand that the effects of addiction can be felt by all family members and they alone cannot always help their loved one fully recover from their drug or alcohol addiction. We are here to help by providing private family therapy sessions on a weekly basis so that your family can grow and progress together. Family therapy is available for both residential inpatient and outpatient Christian treatment programs. The goal of family therapy is to help family members improve...


A Father’s Battle Against Prescriptions

In June of 2007, Eric Jensen was in a motorcycle accident. While receiving treatment for injuries sustained in the crash, Jensen was given a pain reliever prescription and some muscle relaxers. One day after feeling particularly pained, Jensen doubled his dose and quickly became high for the first time. He began taking pills in higher doses, asking for new prescriptions before his old ones were out, and taking pills from his wife and others.
