At Therápia Addiction Healing Center, we have developed an holistic healing approach to treating addiction that is designed to bring into balance the mind, body and spirit.  We believe that as we address all three of these areas, our clients will experience an holistic recovery.  Spirituality is a key component of this approach and is a valuable resource in the recovery journey.

It helps individuals search for the meaning and purpose of life, and it helps them experience hope, love, inner peace, comfort, and support.”

The 12 Step program of AA is founded on the need to find a spiritual basis for life in order to get into recovery.  In the Big Book it states, “…Lack of power, that was our dilemma. We had to find a power by which we could live, and it had to be a Power greater than ourselves. Obviously. But where and how were we to find this Power? Well, that’s exactly what this book is about. Its main object is to enable you to find a Power greater than yourself which will solve your problem. That means we have written a book which we believe to be spiritual as well as moral…”
