Spirituality in Recovery
Your addiction recovery should be a time of change, reflection, and restoration. Although this can be a very fruitful process, it can also be draining and overwhelming at times. Many choose to draw on their spirituality during addiction recovery. For some this means practicing their religion; for others, it can look different, such as connecting with nature or discerning a path to spiritual growth.
At Hannah’s House by Origins, we know that women experience addiction differently than men. We are committed to treating you as a whole person with Spiritual Care Services that support your body, mind, and spirit, respectful of your faith tradition or religious practices.
Spiritual Care for Addiction Treatment and Recovery
Our Spiritual Care Services show women how to harness spiritual resources to promote peace of mind and restore injured relationships. We have developed this ministry to promote peaceful living and wellness through spiritual counseling and activities designed specifically for women journeying toward sobriety.
Benefits of Spirituality in Recovery
It can be painful for many to accept personal responsibility following drug or alcohol addiction. Spirituality in the recovery process can bring healing from past mistakes which often includes forgiveness, reconnecting with others, and finding a sense of belonging. Healing can work through journaling, allowing some to express thoughts and feelings privately and offering the ability to review and look back periodically to chart their progress and gain perspective.
Strength in Hard Times
Spirituality can help a person through difficult parts of recovery so they can proceed unhindered. Some people accomplish this through meditation, done in a few sessions each day, giving a person renewed strength.
In the aftermath of addiction, many people can feel a sense of purposelessness, uncertain about what to do with their lives. Spirituality can help people look beyond themselves and give them the courage to move out of their comfort zone and serve others. This can greatly increase a person’s sense of self-worth and value.
Seeking a Higher Power often results in a feeling of gratefulness, which plays a substantial role in addiction recovery. Gratitude helps people stay focused on positive things in their life, helping them remain balanced as they work through other elements of their recovery which can be emotionally taxing and upsetting.
