Latest Studies on Spirituality in Addiction Recovery
Here is where the studies get interesting. It has been found that not only does spirituality get you sober, but you are more likely to stay sober if you have spirituality or faith in your life. The stronger that faith or spirituality, the more protected you are from relapse.
The same researchers in 2008 explored the relationship between an individual’s level of faith and spirituality and addiction recovery success.
This is what they found.
“…recovering individuals have statistically greater levels of faith and spirituality than those continuing to relapse; also that relapsing individuals show significantly lower levels of spirituality than those in recovery.”
Despite the paucity of research in this area, spirituality has been shown to be a significant and independent predictor of recovery and/or improvement in indices of treatment outcome…
…levels of spirituality may be greater in individuals whose recovery is successful compared to those who have relapsed. Length of sobriety has also been positively associated with spirituality while commitment to a higher power may lessen the severity of relapse episodes.”
Meaning, if you have spirituality, it is a good indicator of whether or not you going to stay sober. Not only that, but if you are sober and have spirituality, the stronger it is, the more successful you are in your recovery. The strength of your spirituality is correlated with the strength of your recovery. It may even save you in the case of a relapse.
