Spiritual Foundations of Recovery (audio)

In some instances, Christian programs embrace secular treatment and recovery models to such an extreme that their programs look little different than their non-Christian counterparts.  There are certainly important methods and approaches that can be borrowed from the secular treatment community.  But, rescue  missions must never forget their primary purposes of evangelism and discipleship.

This session focuses on the critical elements that make a recovery program uniquely Christian.  Michael shares some special insights on critical recovery-related issues in the light of the Bible.  He highlights the fact that Christian counselors, who are equipped by the Holy Spirit and a working knowledge of the Word of God, have much more to offer the suffering addict.
