Finding Spiritual Rebirth in Addiction Recovery


Addiction recovery is a time of many big changes.

As you transition to a life of sobriety outside of treatment, you are forced to change many aspects of your life from when you were an addict or an alcoholic. These adjustments may involve how you relate to others, how you spend you free time, and largely how you view the world. For many people, these drastic changes can lead to a spiritual rebirth in recovery.

What Is Spiritual Rebirth in Recovery?

A spiritual rebirth usually involves the sudden spiritual awakening and enlightenment of an individual. In Christianity, spiritual rebirth typically occurs when someone receives Christ. John 1:12-13 marks this time saying, “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.” Those who have experienced a spiritual rebirth have let go of their old lives in pursuit of a life that follows His word.

For those struggling with substance abuse, a spiritual awakening in recovery can be the guiding force that helps them get and stay sober. People who are born again in recovery may have lost their way because of their addiction, but they now have a renewed faith in God that they can lean on as they rebuild their life.

How to Find Spiritual Rebirth in Addiction Recovery

Although spiritual rebirth in sobriety is possible, getting to this point isn’t always easy. As a Christian rehab center in Florida, we are sharing some ways to help you experience that spiritual rebirth in addiction recovery that can guide you to lasting sobriety and strong faith.

Find the Right Treatment Program

The easiest way to prompt this spiritual rebirth is to find a treatment center that will not only promote building your faith during recovery, but also make it a focus during your time with faith-based addiction therapies.

Read The Bible

The Bible is filled with helpful passages that can remind you of God’s grace. Recovery Bible studies in particular can help you relate The Bible to your struggles with addiction. When you are able to apply scripture to your own life, it can help you better connect with your faith.

Pray

Praying may seem trivial at first if you are struggling to believe, but with time, you may find that God answers your prayers and gives you strength. As you begin to see this mysterious work of God, your faith will be renewed.

Ask Others for Guidance

Sometimes we are not yet ready to listen to God, so we need others to help guide us there. If you are struggling with your faith, try turning to a Champlain or spiritual leader. They may be able to help you look at faith in a different way and get over your hurdles.

 

Addiction recovery is a time of starting over, asking for forgiveness, and finding faith. At Faith in Recovery, we want to help you get there. Call us today at 888-280-4763 to learn more.
