Spiritual Care and Healing
Addiction is a complex biopsychosocial disease, meaning that it affects the mind, body, and spirit. As such, no single treatment and recovery approach is likely to be sufficient. Rather, treatment must be individualized based on the unique psychological, physical, social, and spiritual needs of the individual.
A Personal Spiritual Awakening
For many, recovery from addiction is also a spiritual awakening. Spirituality is not synonymous with religion, and can mean different things to different people. Spirituality is defined as deeply held beliefs that bring meaning to your life.Recovery from addiction involves re-connecting to these beliefs. Successful long-term recovery from substance abuse requires a perspective shift, and this shift can only be achieved through a spiritual transformation.However one relates to spirituality, it can be an important facet of the recovery process.
The Process of Self-Discovery and Meaning
At RiverMend Health we support this process of transformation by helping you identify and reconnect with those aspects of your life that you hold closest to your heart. For some, it is a meaningful relationship with God, and for others it is a devotion to helping others recover from addiction.It is this connection to a higher purpose that is critical in transforming the addict into a recovered person who abstains from addictive substances.
A Greater Commitment to Lasting Success
Regardless of where your spiritual power is derived from, it is a tool that allows for lasting healing. The path of addiction is often times a path of isolation and detachment. A renewed sense of purpose provides the opportunity to recognize the reality that you are not alone on your journey. Countless people have successfully walked this path before you and you can too. With greater meaning comes a greater commitment to lasting success.By recognizing the power of a greater purpose and interconnectedness with others, individuals often choose to give back to their community in various ways. This creates a renewed sense of self-worth and purpose while maintaining an addiction-free lifestyle. It also serves as a constant reminder that no one has to walk the path of recovery alone.
