Faith-based Recovery

Faith-based Recovery

Some individuals do well with recovery options that are based on their religious beliefs. This type of spiritual path can provide the individual with new meaning. They may even be able to get support from the religious community. There is some evidence that suggests prayer and meditation can be of great value to people in sobriety. This is not a path that will appeal to everyone hoping to recover from their addiction. It may still be possible to benefit from aspects of faith-based recovery without becoming a believer.
