Back in the 1930s psychologist Dr. Carl Jung corresponded with Alcoholic Anonymous' founder Bill Wilson in an attempt to discover a cure for the disease of alcoholism. Dr. Jung's conclusion was (in basic terms) that alcoholic spirits were an attempt to fill the thirst for the spirit of God. The remedy then, he concluded, was a spiritual one because a spiritual problem cannot be resolved with a material solution. This presentation on The Spirituality of Addiction will explore and explain the necessity of including spirituality in the recovery process, the incorporeal craving that underlies all addictions, the spiritual states of consciousness that substances mimic, as well as some solutions and the ways to attain them. In addition, the presentation will include clarifications on spirituality vs. religion, an examination of the concepts of faith (both secular and sacred), surrender, grace, God, atheism, agnosticism, theism, and more â€” all within the context of addiction in our postmodern society.
- Understand the evidence-based role that spirituality plays in addiction recovery.
- Distinguish the difference between authentic spirituality, religion, and Twelve Step programs, thus allowing you to better guide your clients.
- Be aware of the basic history of spirituality in recovery.
- Comprehend the function of substances in a person's life as related to the spiritual side of human nature.
