Haven House Addiction Recovery – A Journey Toward a New Life After Treatment
Alcohol and drug addiction often have a devastating spiritual impact. It turns people into someone other than who they really are. Those who abuse drugs and alcohol find temporary freedom and happiness but are later on rewarded with misery and bondage. As addiction worsens, the user can become isolated, losing their connections with people and God. Alcohol and drugs become their most intimate partners. In this destructive state, they will often see themselves as unlovable, unforgivable, and worthless. This shame leads to even deeper cycles of addiction.
There is a huge difference between bad people and bad behavior. Deliverance from addiction requires a connection to outside sources, which can help one see the reality of their problems and the truth about themselves. Haven House has a Nashville recovery center, where we offer a 12-month residential program for recovering men.
Our recovery house in Nashville focuses on spiritual healing. This method has been proven effective in treating alcohol and drug addiction. Our Christ-based approach addresses many dimensions of the addiction, incorporating elements that heal not only the body, but also the mind and spirit.
Unlike other treatment programs that only include detox and behavioral therapies, our alcohol and drug rehab in Nashville includes spirituality as a core tenet of the healing and recovery process. The staff in our Nashville recovery center are first and foremost skilled and experienced professionals. Treatment programs are done in a way that can be adapted to the desires and needs of every resident. Our main goal is to help them find remission through social, emotional, and spiritual healing.
We put a particular emphasis on Christ-centered, gospel solutions with work therapy. Unlike other rehab centers in Nashville, we also offer life skills training. Our residents are given time to help and work in our thrift stores, where they learn new skills, the value of hard work, discipline, time management, and teamwork. These are very important for them to become functioning and contributing members of their communities in the future.
Recovery cannot happen alone. No one can truly grow and progress without connection to others. We have group morning meetings, peer accountability, and classes designed to educate our residents on the spiritual and physical harm of chemical dependency. We also do social activities at our Nashville recreation center to avoid boredom and promote strong social support. Participating in healthy and fun activities can help prevent relapse.
Altogether, these methods help our residents to clear away the deceptive thoughts, beliefs, and feelings that underlie addictive behaviors.
