Spirituality plays a pivotal role on the road to recovery from addiction. Developing a sense of a “higher power” can push us to make significant strides toward healing our mind and body in a way that may have been unachievable otherwise. Even though finding a higher power or spiritual connection may be difficult for most, once it is found, it becomes a very important part of recovery.
Believing that good things will come from the difficult changes that are necessary in recovery is the embodiment of a “higher power”. Spirituality is peace of mind, allowing us to feel comfortable with letting go of impulsive tendencies to control (relationships, thoughts, emotions, behaviors, and situations) and instead, learn to simply Trust.
