Counseling


Christian counseling can help you or a loved one come to terms with your powerlessness as only Christian counseling can. Christian counseling can help the alcohol and drug abuse sufferer turn his or her will and life over to God. Even secular treatment centers focus on a Higher Power so Christian counseling is in many ways part of the typical treatment center. However Spencer Recovery Centers understands that there is a great need for Christian counseling. That those whose lives have been upset by drugs and alcohol can find the greatest help, hope and Christian counseling from our Savior Jesus Christ.

Christian counseling is often necessary for those of us who feel like we are in control of most of our lives. Perhaps you earn a decent living, have a family and go to church regularly. It may be very difficult and humiliating to admit that alcohol or drugs have gotten the upper hand and you cannot quit on your own. We often only reach out for help when the pain and depression seem too overwhelming to bear. Sometimes we feel confused like we are being punished no matter what we do. Like Job 6:8-9 we might even ask that the Lord take us out of this life to end our misery. Job goes on to teach us of course that life can be saved with God's help and be good again.

Christian counseling can help with this process. With beautiful facilities set along both coasts of the United States, Spencer Recovery Centers offer a haven from the intolerant surroundings that contribute to sinful behavior. Here you will find that what seems like the end of life is actually a glorious beginning. By admitting powerlessness and that life as we chose to control it became unmanageable, we can then make the necessary room available to let God take over. It is necessary to become as powerless as children:

"Let the children come to me. Don't stop them! For the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these. I assure you, anyone who doesn't have their kind of faith will never get into the Kingdom of God." (Mark 10: 14-15)

As intelligent adults we rarely like to put ourselves in the vulnerable position of a helpless child. Christian counseling and the 12 steps of recovery guide us to the understanding that trusting our lives to God is the only answer for recovery from drugs and alcohol. That we must become helpless before God to become strong in the face of temptation. That we must take honest stock of our situation and past in order to move forward in recovery.

Spencer Recovery Centers accomplish this goal through individual assessment and counseling. Residential in-patient treatment has been proven to be the most effective when coupled with long-term commitment to follow-up care and the 12-step recovery community. Christian counseling combines the latest in medical treatment, therapeutic counseling, family counseling, group therapy, relapse prevention and education. Spencer Recovery Centers have been serving the community for more than a decade and has a track record of success.
