Our Christian Addiction Treatment Program: Boundaries Workshop

 

Celebrate Hope features a Boundaries Workshop as part of the core components of our Christian Drug and Alcohol rehab programs.


Based on the 1992 book, Boundaries: When to Say YES, When to Say NO, To Take Control of Your Life, written by Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend, our intensive Boundaries Workshop addresses specific issues that confront many of those who are chemically dependent, including:

 


Why Boundaries are Valuable in Addiction Recovery

By definition, drug and alcohol addiction treatment completely recalibrates your relationships with friends and family members. Active addiction itself pulls us away from selfless, Christ-like love and warps our priorities. In early recovery, it can be tempting to overcompensate for this by being overly available to loved ones – never saying no to any request, out of either shame or guilt. This drive for perfectionism is common for those striving to make things right again.


In order to successfully protect your recovery, it’s important to understand that your sobriety comes before everything else. In order to be your best self, express your needs, and avoid manipulation or stress, you should learn to set healthy boundaries with the people surrounding you.

The Link Between Narcissistic Personality Disorder and Addiction

Many addicts and alcoholics also suffer from Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD); this is one of many types of dual diagnosis or co-existing disorders. NPD is defined by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders as “a pervasive pattern of grandiosity, need for admiration, and a lack of empathy.”

 

In simpler terms, it’s someone who thinks too much of himself or, to the other extreme, to low of himself. The narcissist is often described as turning inward for gratification rather than depending on others and as being excessively preoccupied with issues of personal adequacy, power, and prestige. Narcissistic personality disorder is closely linked to self-centeredness.

 

The Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous describes the main problem or the root of the problem, as self-centeredness and selfishness. And based upon these all self-consuming thoughts, fear begins to drive one’s behavior into absurd and often times self-defeating patterns of living; it leaves one depressed and in the propensity for drug use or alcohol consumption. The vicious cycle will continue until one receives professional help.

 

A common characteristic of the narcissist is poor boundaries – whether self-imposed or set by others – and a lack of respect for the boundaries others have established. Addicts often feel, “that doesn’t apply to me,” or the rules are just for others to follow.

 

To live a healthy, well-balanced life, it’s essential to learn how to set and abide by boundaries. A life without boundaries is a life that is out of control. Either we are being walked all over by others or we are the one's doing the walking on. As part of our Christian Addiction treatment, clients learn how boundaries help us distinguish God’s will from our own. Celebrate Hope’s Boundaries Workshop will answer the following questions:
