One of the most common and natural outcomes of addiction recovery is the increasing desire to further our own spiritual development, which may include furthering our relationship with our Higher Power,however we understand and conceptualize Him or Her.
Our clients, who want a more in depth spiritual journey in their recovery process, can do so in our Spiritual Program with the assistance of our spiritual counselors. These experienced and capable counselors provide spiritually focused, individual counseling sessions each week to help our clients further develop their spiritual understanding and acuity.
In addition to the individual counseling sessions, our counselors also recommend specific literature, workbook and journaling activities, and other resources that our clients can utilize during their stay with us and continue to use as they move forward in their recovery.
So often, the spiritual component overall wellness is given less attention than the physical or mental aspects are. Through our Spiritual Program we provide a pathway whereby our clients may bring their spiritual development into balance with the other components of complete well-being.
One of the key components of our Christian Treatment Program includes our affiliation with the Rick Warren Saddleback Community Church through the 'Celebrate Recovery' program and workshops - a world-renowned recovery program, based on Rick Warrren's 8 Principles of Recovery.
Saddleback Church instituted this highly successful alcohol and drug addiction program, through Pastor John Baker, fourteen years ago. Our clients, who are interested is attending the Celebrate Recovery activities, do so each week at the main Saddleback Church.
In addition to Celebrate Recovery, those electing to participate in our Christian program utilize the Life Recovery Bible and the Celebrate Recovery Participant Guides, combined with 12 Step studies, in order to further their recovery and walk with God, while at our facility.
Finally and most importantly, our Christian program participants engage in numerous, individual, Christ-centered counseling sessions conducted by our experienced and skilled Christian counselors. In these individual sessions, our clients are able to truly open themselves to God and to a loving, grace-based relationship with him, which invariably increases peace and happiness and contentment in their lives. Ultimately, they are able to progress spiritually and improve their relationships with God, loved ones, their fellowmen.
