Christian Addiction Treatment: The Power of Pastoral Counseling


Celebrate Hope is one of few accredited California Christian rehabs offering on-site pastoral care for residents and outpatients. Our pastoral counseling approach is based upon what God promises in scripture: “This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!” (2 Cor. 5:17; New Living Translation (NLT))

Many addicts are stuck in their old patterns, unable to leave their former selves behind and move forward. In pastoral counseling, we show clients how they can become a new person in Christ. God accomplishes transformation in the lives of our clients by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Under the direction of our pastoral counselors, Celebrate Hope residents learn to apply God’s healing love and power to the wounds caused by addiction. Scriptural truth brings miraculous life change to our clients, and we are privileged to encourage and direct them according to Romans 12:12: “Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.” (NLT)

Bible Study in Christian Addiction Treatment

Hope by the Sea and Celebrate Hope provide daily Bible study opportunities for clients. We are purposed to bring God’s word to the hearts and minds of addicts as a healing balm and as instruction for living a selfless life of purpose and service. Studying God-breathed scriptures helps clients leave guilt and shame behind and experience freedom from the bondage of chemical dependency. From daily biblical study, our clients learn to live a life of newfound courage inspired by God’s promises.


Our On-site Pastoral Counseling

Tailored to your unique emotional and spiritual needs, Celebrate Hope’s pastoral services include:



Meet the late Dale Tatum, Celebrate Hope’s first pastor, serving our clients from October 2009 through September 2016. In the video below Pastor Tatum discusses God’s love and the healing that results - especially in mitigating the guilt and shame surrounding one’s addiction.


“The central tenet of Christianity as it has come down to us is that we are to reach out when our instinct is to pull inward; to give when we want to take; to love when we are inclined to hate; to include when we are tempted to exclude.”


- Jon Meacham, Historian


For more than 15 years Pastor Tatum focused on serving as a marriage and family counselor. Then in 2009 he came to Hope By The Sea assisting in designing our Christian track, Celebrate Hope, and offering spiritual guidance and pastoral counseling to clients as they worked their program of recovery. Walking with Christ, he changed many lives. He reached out, he gave of himself, he loved all whom he had contact with, and he always included in his life and ministry those seeking health, peace and recovery.


One former client said it best…he was “my Magnificent Mentor.”
