How Faith Fortifies Recovery
Faith can be a powerful and effective tool in addiction recovery and is defined as “confidence or trust in a person or thing.” You don’t have to be religious or belong to a specific religion to have faith, but it can be instrumental in your recovery process. Faith and recovery go hand in hand, because having faith can teach you to trust in the people who are there to help you, and most importantly, trust in yourself that you can overcome addiction.
The first step in addiction recovery is taking a leap of faith and admitting you have a problem. The most effective tool in this process is the 12 Step program. When the 12 Step program is combined with faith, you will realize that a higher power can help you achieve your goals of overcoming substance abuse.
Faith-based recovery is scientifically proven to help those not only recover, but to continue and have a long-lasting recovery. Faith and recovery can guide you through the program and also into the future when you have to face difficult situations on your own.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” – Jeremiah 29:11-13
