Why are people drawn to a Christ-centered addiction treatment center over other types of inpatient and outpatient rehabs? Do only devoted Christians choose a Christian environment for help with their addiction?
In order to get to know our own participants in the Trek program at HopeQuest, I took a long look at the types of the people who join our program. I was interested in their perspective on God and the church, as well as their relationship with Christ.
I was surprised at what I found. You might be too.
Out of those I surveyed, I found four types of people who come to HopeQuest:
- Those skeptical of Christianity and the church but willing to listen.
- Those wounded by the church, church leaders, and other Christians.
- Genuine followers of Christ who are alive but not free, dominated by addictive behaviors.
- Christians who are trapped in a performance-based theology marked by legalism, religious tradition, self-effort, and masks.
At Trek we integrate a Christ-centered perspective with clinically-effective interventions to provide our clients addiction treatment in a safe spiritual community. People should not have to sacrifice one over the other. Whether you are a committed Christian or skeptical of the church and Christianity, our approach is not religious or preachy. It’s thoroughly biblical in its framework – integrated with profound yet practical clinical practices and genuine authenticity.
Why are people drawn to us? They want a Christ-centered treatment option that takes the clinical seriously. They come because of the unique ways HopeQuest integrates those two. They come because they’re thirsty to be known for who they are – as they are. Isn’t that what everyone wants in this world?
Isn’t that what you want?
We understand. We’re right there with you.
No matter who you are, or how you come to consider us, there is one thing we want you to know above all – God is for you.
And we are too.
