Christian rehab, short for a Christian rehabilitation program, is a center where Christians can go to deal with their drug addiction, alcoholism or any other associated disorder. The main reason an individual who is of the Christian faith may choose a Christian drug rehab over a traditional rehabilitation program is the focus on Jesus Christ as one’s “higher power” and the focus on improving one’s Christian faith in its entirety.
The mainstream or traditional rehab does not focus on a religious preference. This being the case, their "higher power" could be anything with very little focus on the Bible or any other Christian teachings.
What to Expect From a Christian Rehab Program
Christian rehabilitation from a clinical, medical and psychiatric perspective is no different than any other rehabilitation program. Each person entering a Christian rehabilitation program will probably require a complete physical examination and detoxification from the substance they are dependent on. After determining the need for detox, the physician will design an individualized medication protocol to ease any withdrawal symptoms the person might experience.
In both Christian rehabilitation programs and traditional rehabilitation programs, detox is not treatment, only medical stabilization. It is in detox where an evaluation is made as to the patient's need for ongoing rehabilitation. The detox center should always be located on the same campus as the rehab to insure continuity of care.
Once in the rehab portion of the recovery process, patients are involved in:
- Group and individual therapy
- Family therapy
- Dual diagnosis treatment if necessary
- Aftercare planning
- Relapse prevention planning
The difference between a Christian rehab and traditional rehabilitation program is the philosophy. In the Christian rehabilitation program patients will also participate in Bible study, prayer, attendance at church, Christ centered readings and more.
