Many people in addiction recovery find success by prioritizing their spiritual side. Looking to a Higher Power for inspiration and direction can reinforce good habits, build your self-esteem, and encourage adherence to one’s program. At Providence Treatment, we provide spiritual guidance services in Honolulu, Hawaii.
The Role of Spirituality in Addiction Recovery
Addiction has a negative effect on every aspect of a person’s life. Perhaps the area most devastated is one’s spirituality: the sense of connection to something bigger than oneself. When compulsive substance use takes over, man’s search for meaning is derailed. This leads to lack of direction, times of crisis, and increased instability. Therefore, in order to begin the journey of recovery, one’s spiritual side should be restored.
Anyone who has participated in traditional recovery groups has noticed the role that spirituality plays in these programs. The 12 Steps refer to a Higher Power, which can take different forms depending on each individual’s preferences. Whether a person turns to a major world religion, expresses themselves through good deeds, finds comfort in nature, or feels most spiritual while meditating, spirituality serves as a core of their recovery.
You do not need to be religious in order to tap into your spirituality. At Providence Treatment, we provide comprehensive spiritual guidance to assist you through every phase of recovery.
