The Christian 12-Step Program
A rehab center in Florida is offering a 12-step program designed specifically for Christians.
According to a news release from PRWeb, the Christian Addiction Program at the The Recovery Place in Fort Lauderdale uses videos and social media to help people recover from drug or alcohol abuse.
The news release said:
The Christian 12 Step program at The Recovery Place is dynamic, not static. It isn’t just taking care of Step one and then moving on through the subsequent 11steps, and bingo!-you graduate into recovery. The opposite is true: the 12 Step program is an ongoing process that an addict or alcoholic learns about, begins to work on while in Christian drug and alcohol rehab, and then takes with them after they go home, to use as an active guide for healthy sober living for the rest of their life.
Charlotte, a Christian drug abuse treatment counselor at the facility, said Step 2 in the Christian 12 step program(admitting there is a higher power) is particularly meaningful.
“As a person repeats the same destructive behavior he knows what the results will be,” Charlotte said. “This is a step of hope.”
It is a step that shows how an addict or alcohol needs to trust in a higher power, something bigger than themselves in order to move beyond the destructive behavior. In the Christian 12 Step track, God is the power behind recovery, and the Bible used as a teaching source for that power.
