Battling an addiction to drugs or alcohol can be draining on yourself, your family, your finances, and your life. If your Hindu faith is an integral part of who you are, you may want to consider looking into Hindu drug and alcohol rehab centers.
Finding a faith-based treatment center that aligns with your beliefs will perhaps make the transition from addiction to sobriety feel a little less overwhelming. When you surround yourself with others that also share your Hindu beliefs, your faith is what can help you connect with others struggling from similar addictions and can help you stay strong as you strive for sobriety.
Also, note that there is nothing wrong with attending a secular rehab center if you choose, but keep in mind that secular programs have faiths and beliefs from all aspects of society. If you think attending a secular program will be too frustrating because you do not share common beliefs with the counselors or patients, then a faith-based rehab center that does align with your religion could be right for you.
Holistic vs. Traditional And 12-Step vs. Non-12-Step
Many Hindu rehab centers are structured on the 12-step program and are more traditional in their approach. Many 12-step programs need individuals to at least believe in a Higher Power. 12-step programs teach patients that their addition is the problem. Conversely, a non-12-step program recognizes that your alcohol addiction is just the surface of your core problems.
They will not only address your addiction and teach you how to live a healthy and sober lifestyle, but these programs will want to address what really lies behind the addiction at its core (psychologically, emotionally) as well. Non-12-step programs believe that addiction arises from these problems that might not have been fully addressed in the first place.
Millions of individuals have found that 12-step programs have worked for them. Examples of successful 12-step programs include Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and also Narcotics Anonymous (NA). There are many NA and AA groups out there. Scroll to the bottom of the page to contact us about finding an AA or NA group near you.

and how you need it.
If you do not like the traditional path of recovery, there are also Holistic Hindu rehabs. These rehabs offer 12-step programs and are similar to traditional rehabs, but they also offer other alternative drug rehab choices. These other options include: yoga, acupuncture, meditation, outdoor adventure therapy, body work, and art and drama therapies, among others.
Other Differences Of Hindu Rehabs To Consider
There are also some other differences between Hindu rehabs that you may not find at other secular facilities. Not only will you find a traditional approach to recovery at many Hindu rehabs and options such as yoga and meditation, you will also find that Hindu rehabs may include a worshiping schedule several times a day. Hindu rehabs may also help you focus on finding your purpose in life. And many Hindus also adhere to a strict diet. Many Hindu rehabs understand the strict diet aspect of your faith and are more likely to observe your strict diet than other facilities. These are all a few more things to consider when deciding if a Hindu rehab is right for you.
Benefits Of A Faith-Based Program
Individuals that attend any faith-based program aim to develop a better relationship between themselves and God. You can also learn more about your faith and connect with others that share your beliefs. Your spirituality and faith can be used as another coping mechanism to help you battle your addiction. You can gain wisdom and strength in faith-based programs to achieve sobriety. And while battling an addiction is at your own pace, having a program focus around your faith is a strong foundation to your success.
Another pro of faith-based programs is that they teach patients forgiveness and to let go of the past. Forgiving yourself and others is a way to move forward and to leave your addiction behind. Faith-based programs also can surround you with religious leaders and support from members of your faith or religious community. You can truly feel that a community of believers is rallying for your success. You don’t need to struggle alone.
Inpatient vs. Outpatient Programs
An aspect of treatment you want to consider is whether you will be attending an inpatient or outpatient facility. Many aspects will determine whether an inpatient or outpatient facility is best for you. It is proven, however, that inpatient rehab facilities are the best option for those struggling from a drug or alcohol addiction. Why is this? Inpatient facilities will face your addiction head-on and will have individuals stay at the facility between 30-90 days or longer (depending on the severity and history of the addiction).
Inpatient facilities have a more intensive approach to therapy and recovery, as a more focused approach is necessary for severe addictions. Individuals will be able to focus on recovery at the facility without the distractions of life. Many inpatient facilities aim to heal not only your addiction (the body), but the psychological aspects of the addiction as well. Faith-based programs will also help heal your soul, too. Look for inpatient programs that heal your mind, body, and soul. If a program only treats the physical aspects of addiction, there is a likelihood of relapse. Addressing an addiction’s effects on your body, mind, and soul will help heal an individual completely. Individuals are also more likely to be successful in their recovery programs if they address all aspects of their addiction.
Outpatient programs, on the other hand, are better suited as an aftercare program (after a patient has already successfully attended an inpatient program). Outpatient programs meet a few hours a day for a few days a week. Many (but not all) outpatient programs require individuals to be drug free and without withdrawal symptoms when they start their outpatient treatment. Outpatient programs can help individuals stay on track after they have successfully completed their inpatient rehab stay.
