Spirituality and Addictions Treatment
N/A Rev. Janet Jacobs, Director of Gambling Recovery Ministries
Online Training (45 minutes)
VIEW MORE

Research has indicated that among individual protective factors is religiosity, or the participation in religious activities and the personal attitudes a person may have toward religious or spiritual practices. Thus utilizing one’s spirituality to cope with life issues appears to correlate with experiencing benefits to their health and well-being. As a source of comfort and relief from stress, spirituality - regardless of religious (or non-religious) affiliation - serves as an integral part of many recovery-from-addiction types of programs. Expanding the concept of spirituality to include personal values clarification, choices and responsibilities, treatment programs can open discussion on a variety of topics, such as individual belief systems, virtues, prayer, meditation, surrendering one’s personal will to a higher power (as the person understands this term), forgiveness, and discerning one’s purpose in life.

Learning Objectives:
- To gain knowledge about the role of spirituality in the life of a recovering person and how it can positively impact his/her life
- To define and be able to identify various spiritual coping modes and to understand how each may affect the recovery process.
- To become familiar with the 12 Steps Program, in general, and to recognize the issues an individual in recovery may face with regard to spiritual surrender (Steps 2 and 3), as well as, to understand how spiritual surrender serves as an integral step within the process of recovery
