Why Choose Faithbased Drug Rehab?
A 2006 study published in the Journal of Substance Abuse Treatment reveals some surprising facts about faithbased substance abuse programs when compared to traditional secular programs. A paper entitled "Outcomes Evaluation in Faith-Based Social Services: Are We Evaluating Faith Accurately?" by Kristin Ferguson of Arizona State University and Donna Spruijt-Metz of the University of Southern California analyzed research on the effectiveness of faith-based organizations in tackling issues including substance abuse. They used a systematic review mehtod and note that "two studies found that participants in faith-based drug treatment programs achieved sobriety and were more likely to remain sober over time than their comparison-group counterparts" (Bicknese, 1999; Thompson, 1994).
The results of their analysis perhaps came as no surprise to professionals in church ministries that dedicate themselves to helping others through a combination of proven addiction treatment and spiritual guidance. When people in recovery approach sobriety with a greater sense of purpose, the effectiveness of their treatment is greater.
