Treating Mind and Spirit as One

Hope & Recovery

Addiction and recovery are a place where we can discover the spiritual dimension of life.

It is widely believed that spiritual factors play a key role in the origin, course of, and recovery from addictions. While alcohol and other drugs cannot touch the spirit directly, it does “knock out the brain’s ability to serve as sensory instrument of the soul.” The result is spiritual dysfunction or “dis-ease.” This presentation will provide a brief overview of how impaired spirituality and addiction go hand in hand – essentially, that the human mind cannot simultaneously be in a state of true gratitude and also crave the madness of alcohol or drugs.
