Spirituality in Addiction and Recovery


Presented by: James Campbell, LPC, LAC, MAC, CACII


Few would deny that addiction has a spiritual aspect, yet many clinicians are reticent to engage in addressing spirituality in their practice. Likewise, many in faith communities have great compassion but sometimes are uncertain about how to help individuals impacted by substance use. This session offers practical tools in discussing and engaging spirituality as it relates to the addiction and recovery of those we serve. Specific emphasis is given to the role of spiritual empowerment within treatment, recovery, fostering resiliency, avoiding recidivism, and making healthy life choices.


By the end of the training participants will be able to:

    • Identify 2 distinctions between religion and spirituality,
    • Enhance their understanding of both the strengths and limitations of insight and awareness in changing behavior and be able to articulate them.
    • Explore the role of mindful practice as a tool for emotional regulation, craving management, and recovery.
    • Evaluate past patterns of behavior for common risk and resiliency factors,

    Discuss intentionality and empowerment as a means for reducing relapse/recurrence of substance use disorders and recidivism.
