Drug addiction and alcoholism are considered by the medical community to be diseases. Like any other progressive and terminal disease, such as cancer, substance abuse is not a respecter of persons, economic standing, educational background or religious orientation. In recent years, those within the religious community have begun to understand that alcoholism and drug addiction are not simply consequences of moral failure. Christian drug addiction is now being seriously addressed and treated effectively as the tragic disease it is. Addiction is classified as a disease because it meets the criteria of all other terminal diseases; - It has pattern of symptoms which are similar across all types of substance abuse, - It is a chronic condition. It doesn't go away, - The person is subject to relapse. - It is progressive. Addiction only gets worse with continued use, and ends with death. The good news however, is that, while substance addiction is a terminal illness, its progression can be arrested at almost any stage and can be put into remission indefinitely - providing a specific program is adhered to faithfully. The highly successful Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous are best known as a collection of spiritual disciplines that have been helpful to people recovering from addictions. These principles were taken from basic teachings found in the Bible and practiced in the early years of the AA movement. Today, Christian drug addiction treatment spiritual teaching parallels the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous within the context of the scriptures and early practices. Christian drug addiction treatment typically offers a comprehensive treatment program, uniquely designed for the patient that usually includes psychological counseling, psychiatric and medical support, nutritional and health courses and instruction based on the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous. But the core of the program consists of two spirituality tracks; a “Traditional Track”, utilizing the principles of the 12 Steps, and a “Christian Track” where the 12 Steps are taught based on their scriptural underpinnings. Pacific Hills Treatment Centers, Inc. is a premier Christian drug addiction treatment program, offering both the traditional spirituality track based on the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous and a Christ-centered program for those who embrace the scriptures and Christ as their Higher Power.
