Receiving attention for drug or alcohol abuse is a commendable decision and should be encouraged and supported. When a person commits to getting clean and sober, a strong care center that provides faith based services and a Christian support network helps ensure success and decrease the risk of relapse.
Studies have shown that people who choose a faith-based (Christian) approach to addiction recovery are more likely to avoid relapse and stay sober.
