Episcopal Drug and Alcohol Rehab

With nearly 2 million baptized members, the Episcopal Church makes up a small portion of the worldwide population of Anglican Christians. Episcopalians have a reputation for being more socially liberal than other sects of Christianity. This attitude is reflected in their modern set of Episcopal rehab and addiction principles.

Episcopal Rehab and Addiction Principles

  • “Addiction is a Disease – The Diocese of ­­­­(location of district) acknowledges that alcohol and drug abuse is a disease that affects the brain, and it is a major health concern in our society.”
  • “Addiction Destroys Relationships – We understand that such alcohol and drug abuse impairs the body, mind and spirit of the abuser, thus disrupting supportive relationships with family, friends, and colleagues. It is a spiritual disease that impairs one’s relationship with God.”
  • “Addiction is Treatable – We agree with health authorities that alcohol and drug addiction can affect any individual, regardless of social, educational or financial status. However, the disease is treatable.”
  • We are Called to A Healing Ministry – We especially acknowledge the need for guidance and for a healing ministry for those who abuse alcohol or other drugs and also for those who have close personal relationships with them. We encourage parishes to provide opportunities for education and conversation about the use and abuse of alcohol and other drugs.”
  • “Therefore, we call on all clergy and lay people to take to heart the seriousness of alcohol and drug abuse and to offer forth the love of Christ in his healing ministry to those persons and families facing addiction. We also encourage the application of moderation and sensitivity in all matters to ensure the offering of a safe and welcoming house of worship to people in recovery.”

Episcopal Rehab Attitude

The modern addiction viewpoint is mirrored in their conception of recovery. Members struggling with drug and alcohol addiction are supported within their church and encouraged to seek treatment in groups like Alcoholics Anonymous, Al-Anon, Adult Children of Alcoholics, and more. There are specific Episcopal rehab options available, but less frequently than the previously mentioned options.

The church emphasizes the importance of faith in the process of healing. As stated in their principles, addiction is “a spiritual disease that impairs one’s relationship with God.” This viewpoint bolsters the support members receive within their church communities, but also the importance of finding Christian specific recovery options. Alcoholics Anonymous is a common choice for its ubiquity and the faith aspect involved in the 12-step program.

Are you Struggling?

Many of the ideas espoused by the Episcopal church ring true throughout the field of addiction and recovery. Addiction is a curable disease and a big part of the cure is support from others. It may seem more comfortable to try and address the issue alone, but detoxing and recovering alone is always more dangerous. If substance use disorders are part of your life, reach out to a treatment provider today. Quality care is available for you or someone you love.
