For a long time, people did not understand that religion plays an important role in the therapeutic process. In fact, many renowned therapists openly mocked religion. Sigmund Freud once claimed that religion was “comparable to a childhood neurosis,” which is a very harsh statement. But as time went on, people began to realize that religion does play an important role in therapy. Research has suggested that in many cases, incorporating religion into the therapeutic process makes it much more effective and promotes more permanent and lasting positive change.
The Importance of Faith-Based Treatment
Faith is at the heart of everything we do at Trinity Teen. This is why many Colorado residents choose to send their girls to our treatment center. As time has passed, we have learned through experience that our decision to base our treatment philosophy on faith and religion was a good one, as we have seen the positive effects that it has had on the Colorado girls who have participated in our program. Here are a few reasons why we believe that having a faith-based treatment program is so important.
- Therapy and religion focus on similar values. They both place an emphasis on values that will benefit a person’s life. Some of those values include hope, faith, love, integrity, and honesty. Those attributes will have a positive impact on the lives of everybody who adopts them.
- Faith and religion play an important role in the lives of many people, and residents of Colorado are no exception. A person’s religious and/or spiritual beliefs influence how they think, speak, and act, as well as what they value and believe. By addressing those things from a therapeutic and religious standpoint, it allows us to more directly address the things that might be causing or contributing to the problems they are facing.
- Relying on Christs’ mercy and grace is the best way to change quickly and permanently for the better. With Christ’s help, people can achieve far more than they ever could without it. And by placing an emphasis on increasing their faith while they change their behavior, our girls from Colorado are relying on Christ’s mercy and grace to help them achieve their goals.
