Many People Turn to Drugs And Alcohol As they View These As A Means Of “escape”

Drug and alcohol treatment is a multifaceted process that seeks to achieve the total rehabilitation of a person, not only in the physical sense of detoxification from the chemical dependency of the illicit substances he or she has been consuming. It also seek to achieve rehabilitation of a person in the social, economic, and spiritual spectrums of his life.

What you will find interesting about the latter dimension of rehabilitation, the spiritual one, is that seeks to rehabilitate your soul by bringing you closer to God, and by getting you to recognize that substance abuse is a sinful, debasing, and detestable act. If you accept the teachings of the Bible, and that a pure soul is synonymous with sobriety, then this approach will facilitate your recovery and rehabilitation.

It will also help to keep you from falling into a relapse later again, because the recovery home will instill within you the virtue of God-consciousness, so that you will be unwilling to invoke the displeasure of God in your day to day life here on earth.

Now, of course the concept of spirituality may mean different things to different individuals. Many people may opt not to receive spiritual counseling while checked in at a recovery home, due to their personal views about religion in general. But the underlying theme, of spiritual rehabilitation, can also be applied in a broader, more humanistic and secular sense as well. After all, what is the spirit, the soul, but the essence of a human being’s character, sense of self-esteem, personality, state of mind, outlook on life, and behavior?

One thing is for certain, however. Drug and alcohol abuse are shunned by every religion, every government, and every cultural and society on earth, since the beginning of time, through the present day. If you happen to be a religious person, then you believe that you are committing a sin and disobeying God’s order to keep away from intoxication. If you are not a religious person, on the other hand, you still recognize the fact that drugs and alcohol do more harm than good to not only to your own physical and mental health, but can also adversely impact the lives of those around you, such as your family, friends, neighbors, and society.

Drug and alcohol treatment is every bit about your spiritual rehabilitation as well as it is about your physical rehabilitation. If your spirit is clean, then you will be less likely to fall prey and succumb to the temptation to indulge in drugs and alcohol. Many people turn to drugs and alcohol as they view these as a means of “escape” from the daily problems and stresses in life. A spiritual approach to drug and alcohol treatment, such as may be offered through a recovery home, would be to teach you how to cope with the daily problems in life according to the commandments of God, and what is just and morally correct, so that you can life a more prosperous, happy, fulfilling, and just life, as opposed to living a life of depravity and debauchery, through the abuse of illicit substances.
