Long before the development of modern medicine, people relied on their spirituality to give them strength and promote good health. Prolonged addiction and mental health problems not only harm a person mentally and physically, but it can hurt them spiritually as well. In order to achieve comprehensive healing or to give patients strength during the recovery process, many patients turn to spirituality and religion for help.
Sometimes traditional addiction and mental health treatment is not enough. Strength of faith is a fundamental component for many on their path to addiction recovery. Because moving past drug and alcohol abuse can be so trying, many people draw inspiration from their spiritual beliefs. A spiritual program for behavioral health will help promote this journey for those on the path to addiction recovery.
A Program for All
Just like addiction knows no religious distinctions, at our behavioral health center in South Florida, we accept people of all different religions who wish to have a spiritual-based recovery. Our Palm Beach spiritual program is built on respect, tolerance, and acceptance. In addition to focusing on Christian principles, we also have spiritual rehab programs geared toward Jewish and Muslim patients, as well as any other faith or denomination.
Even for patients who do not believe in God, the act of spiritual exploration involves much more than praise and worship. Practices such as meditation, getting in touch with nature, yoga and qigong allow patients to gain greater clarity, self-awareness and heightened senses, all of which are linked to spirituality.
Whether you are a devout Christian looking to God for strength during your time in treatment or you have fallen away from your faith and are looking to reconnect with Him during your time with us, we welcome you. Our spiritual program for mental health and addiction is designed to allow our patients to discover, rediscover, or strengthen their relationship with a higher power while simultaneously receiving treatment for their addiction and mental health problems.

Those who choose our spiritual recovery from addiction program allows patients to incorporate their faith and spirituality in their journey to recovery.

Counseling sessions are led by Christian therapists and enable patients to apply Bible teachings in order to further embrace recovery and positive life changes. Our interactive group therapy sessions promote support, community, and bonding among patients. Patients recite and live by God’s word to change their way of thinking, rebuild their lives, and strengthen their recovery efforts. Through these programs, our patients learn to lean on their faith and the word of God to battle addiction and the demons which brought them down the wrong path.
Experienced and Supportive Leadership

Our expert behavioral health staff include Christ-centered therapists, many of whom have traveled the road to recovery themselves.
When a recovering addict begins to explore, cultivate and heal their spirituality, they are empowered with more strength in their battle against addiction. With an opportunity to think about what they want out of their lives, patients can feel motivated to move through their rehab toward recovery and may grasp the chance to redefine themselves following treatment.
