Is healing drug addiction really possible? The National Institute on Drug Abuse reports that 40-60 percent of addicts relapse from their treatment and improvement back into their former addictions. Writer Debbie Chew questions these dismal statistics. She wonders how the picture might change if more people turned to spiritual means like prayer for healing drug addiction—an approach that is working for many. She writes:
“For example, Brian Welch, co-founder of the platinum-selling band, Korn, was addicted to drugs and credits God with his rehabilitation. He has been clean since 2005. He says that after hitting rock-bottom, he sought “solitude” alone in his hotel room for days to cleanse himself of the drug addiction, felt ‘lifted up by Christ,’ and experienced a ‘dramatic conversion to Christianity.’
In an interview with The Christian Post, Welch emphasized that he wants those who hear of his healing of drug addiction to know that God is real and that God loves them, even going so far as to say he wants Christians to know God ‘even more.’ “
“Having experienced first-hand God’s ability to heal, through prayer, an apparently hopeless situation, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy, dedicated the first chapter of her book, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, to prayer. In it, she describes The Lord’s Prayer–the prayer that Jesus gave to his disciples (and to us)–as ‘that prayer which covers all human needs.’ ”
Eddy’s prayerful approach cured people of all kinds of bondage for many decades. From her work, Eddy concludes, “The prayer that reforms the sinner and heals the sick is an absolute faith that all things are possible to God,–a spiritual understanding of Him, an unselfed love.” To her, even healing drug addiction is possible to an all good God.
