The Bible and Treatment

"All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It straightens us out and teaches us to do what is right.  It is God's way of preparing us in every way . . .(II Timothy 3:16-17)
The Christian historic belief is that Scripture is authoritative and complete and contains all the principles necessary to live life in Christ and fully as a human being.  We at Pacific Hills operate under the conviction that the inspired Word of God must be our foundational source and inspiration in the professional counseling, treatment and rehabilitation process.
Above all, we believe that love and compassion should be at the heart of a Biblically based ministry (I Corinthians, 13). Accordingly, we are committed to work with our clients in the spirit of tolerance (in the truest sense of the word) and reverence for each person's worth and dignity--beginning with where they are at the point we first meet.
The writers of the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous, with these same motivations, make it clear that the addict's problem is a spiritual sickness that only a "spiritual awakening" can remedy. In its simplicity, it calls the hurting ones to three pertinent and basic truths about themselves: (1) that they are alcoholic and cannot manage their own lives; (2) that no human power can relieve their alcoholism; and (3) that God can and will if He is sought. Despite the reports of some individuals who have experienced prejudice and abuse in the culture of Alcoholic Anonymous, the early history and the principles outlined in the Big Book of AA are squarely rooted in Biblical truth.
We are called to deal with a bio-psycho-social-spiritual disease. Its treatment must be comprehensive and aggressive. We know that left untreated, most die. Our Christian professional staff brings to our unique program the best of psychiatric, psychological, medical, behavioral, pastoral and theological training and experience in order to address substance abuse and the wreckage it brings to suffering human beings. Our goal is to actively stand alongside the walking wounded in the healing process, encouraging hope and renewal to their body, mind, soul, spirit and relationships.
Pacific Hills and Recovery Options exist to serve the chemically dependent and their families in the context of the local church ministry.  We prefer doing so by bringing resource, education and expertise to the local church pastor, counselor and therapist. When a residential program is needed, we seek to involve the church and counselor in the treatment process--with the intent to ultimately restore them to their community of faith.
