Addiction Recovery and the Role of Spirituality
Spirituality refers to an involvement in socially desirable activities or processes that are beyond the immediate details of daily life and personal self-interest. Ethical behavior, consideration for the interests of others, community involvement, helping others and participating in organized religion are all ways in which spirituality can be expressed. People who are in recovery from alcohol and drug addiction often experience an increased interest in the spiritual aspects of their lives and addressing a person's spirituality is widely recognized as an important aspect of addiction treatment and recovery.
“Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can’t help them, at least don’t hurt them.”
- Dalai Lama
Twelve-Step Addiction Treatment Programs and Spirituality
Spirituality and personal values can sustain and supplement drug or alcohol addiction treatment. Acceptance of a higher power is a fundamental element of mutual-help groups, such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA). Enterhealth’s 12-Step Facilitation Therapy is based on the AA addiction recovery model and introduces clients to the process and traditions of AA’s recovery-oriented lifestyle program.
