Spiritual Care and Mentoring
Restore Your Spirituality
Many people say that addictions attack the spirit, but it also can destroy it. Treating addictions need to have a spiritual component for the purpose to fully recover and rediscover themselves. A treatment program that doesn’t nurture someone’s spirituality and the freedom to express themselves is harmful, that’s why we enforce our members to explore different spiritual beliefs.
People with addictions often feel empty, lost, and forgotten. They fill the voids they feel with materialistic things and their addiction rather than up-keeping with their spiritual health.

It’s vital for you to make a full recover to engage in your own form of spirituality. Otherwise, it’s difficult to stay clean and sober. At Aurora Recovery Centre (ARC), you’ll find your spirit beginning to heal as you work with our spiritual care specialists.
When we learn to love ourselves through a spiritual means, we understand our bodies are sacred and that we must take care of ourselves physically and mentally.
ARC staff encourages our members to read through literature and reflect on their personal experiences because it helps not only hope but a sense of self, which helps with healing themselves.
When we learn to accept love and give love, love can be received.
We suggest that our members surround themselves with the positive things as they reach recovery.

At Aurora Recovery Centre, our spiritual care and mentoring provides the tools to help you in discovering your own spirituality. It may mean reconnecting with a form of spirituality you once had. It may mean you discover another means of expressing your spiritual needs that works better for you. Aurora does not encourage you to walk any particular path toward finding your personal spirituality. It must belong to you. With faith, it will work for you when you are experiencing difficulties and there seems no trustworthy direction to take.
If you find that you would like to participate in church gatherings, or if you would like to find solace in meditation and some type of higher power, we will help you fulfill these spiritual needs. Often our members find comfort in the way the connection of the mind and body come together through many different treatments that can be found under the spiritual umbrella.

These sessions can incorporate meditation and mindfulness, which can be utilized throughout your everyday lifestyle.
