Christian Alcohol Rehab
Understanding alcoholism, also known as alcohol use disorder (AUD), is crucial for recognizing and addressing this complex and often debilitating condition. Alcoholism is a chronic and progressive disease characterized by an individual’s inability to control their alcohol consumption, preoccupation with alcohol, continued use despite negative consequences, and physical and psychological dependence on alcohol.
Understanding alcoholism as a complex disease can help reduce stigma, encourage early intervention, and support individuals in their journey to recovery. It’s important to approach those with alcoholism with empathy and compassion, recognizing that recovery is possible with the right resources and support.
Alcoholism is a devastating brain disease. Aside from its impact on family stability, job performance, and finances, dependence takes a heavy toll on human lives. Approximately 88,000 Americans die preventable alcohol-related deaths every year.
As you grow in knowledge of Christ, you’ll begin to see his power over your addiction:
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world, you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” — John 16:33
You’ll see that this disease is far from insurmountable:
“Ah, Sovereign Lord, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.” — Jeremiah 32:17
