Online Christian Counseling for Addiction & Mental Health
At Banyan Treatment Centers, we believe that faith plays an important role in addiction and mental health recovery. One’s mind and emotions can make or break one’s recovery from substance use or mental illness, despite the physical improvements one may see. Everything goes hand-in-hand. In addition to offering inpatient services via our Faith in Recovery program, select Banyan rehab locations also offer online Christian counseling for addiction and mental health that provides care to clients no matter how busy their schedules are. Keep reading below to learn more about our services.
Importance of Faith in Addiction and Mental Health Recovery
The goal of therapy is to increase both psychological and spiritual wholeness, which may only be accomplished in an appropriate environment. Not only have our inpatient faith-based addiction recovery programs proven to be successful in aiding clients in addiction and mental health recovery, but we have also seen success in the affordability and convenience of online Christian counseling.
By bringing together a network of professional therapists who are trained and experienced in applying Biblical values in their treatment, our telehealth treatment program sees an opportunity to offer clients the help they need when and how they can best receive it. Christian counseling online blends spiritual elements with professional mental health care to inspire personal growth and emotional healing.
Faith is a driving force for many, whether we realize it or not. For individuals who have struggled with addiction and mental illness for a while, faith can be a great motivator in receiving treatment and sticking with recovery goals outside of rehab.
What Is Christian Counseling?
Christian counseling or therapy is a form of faith-based counseling that utilizes psychological and spiritual techniques and activities to guide and support patients in recovery from substance use or mental health disorders. Often, Christian therapists incorporate prayer, Bible studies, and devotionals into Christian counseling to help practicing and non-practicing Christians alike overcome their trials in recovery.
The focus of our faith-based services will vary from person to person, as everyone has unique challenges, goals, and needs. Whether patients will receive Christian counseling is determined through a clinical assessment, which is conducted upon admission. This assessment allows our team to learn more about the person’s history of addiction or mental illness, whether they’ve undergone previous treatment, their current struggles, their recovery goals, and more.
Patients who partake in our Christian teletherapy program will discuss Christian values with their therapists and relate them to their unique struggles. Some common topics of discussion in our online Christian counseling sessions include:
- The individual’s relationship with God
- What the bible says about addiction or mental illness
- How scripture can be applied to everyday challenges
- How clients can overcome their struggles in a way that aligns with their faith
- How clients can channel their religion and spirituality in a way that supports their recovery
Core Christian beliefs focus on themes of hope and healing through the development of one’s faith. However, while our faith-based telehealth addiction treatment and mental health care focuses heavily on Biblical values, those interested in our Christian telehealth counseling don’t have to be of the same faith. Even non-Christians or people of other religious backgrounds are welcome to partake in our faith-based telehealth services.
Telehealth Christian Counseling at Banyan
Many of us are guilty of trying to work through challenges on our own. We worry that we’ll be seen as weak or judged for our problems. However, while these worries are warranted, they couldn’t be further from the truth. Our online, faith-based counseling can help clients overcome challenges like:
- Depression, anxiety, or other mental health disorders
- Feeling a spiritual void
- Forgiving another individual or yourself
- Grieving the loss of a loved one
- Lack of fulfillment, personally or professionally
- Loneliness and isolation
- Low self-esteem
- Managing anger and other emotions
- Substance use disorders
Our Banyan Telehealth program offers virtual addiction and mental health care to patients that allows them to sustain a flexible schedule and focus on their responsibilities at work and home without sacrificing their treatment. Patients in this program meet with their therapists online 3 to 5 times per week, usually in the afternoon or evening.
Our specialists use a secure online portal to communicate with patients to ensure that their information remains private. Sessions are normally held via video chat, during which clients are encouraged to sit in a quiet and private setting so they can feel comfortable enough to be open and honest with their therapists. To partake in our faith-based telehealth program, patients only need access to an electronic device that allows them to call and video chat and a reliable internet connection.
Faith plays a crucial role in recovery, and our Banyan rehab locations offer faith-based services to support clients through physical, mental, and spiritual recovery from substance abuse and mental illness.
