Description

Objective. A qualitative case study to describe a faith-based substance use disorders recovery program and the influence of this program on the healing of body, mind, and spirit and the restoration of hope for women recovered from substance use disorders (SUD). Background. Substance use disorders (SUD) and addiction leads to significant socio-economic costs. Addiction is a complex phenomenon. A comprehensive treatment of SUD and addiction requires a holistic approach, which 11 include spiritual principles and religious concepts. Faith, which provides hope and alleviates fear, is a reflection of moral and spiritual maturity. It will be worth to study the holistic concept of faith and faith-based recovery process for substance use disorders. Methods. The case in this single embedded case study is a single, faith-based drug rehabilitation center. The embedded units of analysis involve, female drug addicts recovered from a faith-based rehabilitation center, caregivers, and artifacts that include counseling materials. An in-depth interview will be conducted to understand the faith-based recovery process. Purposive sampling method is used to recruit women in recovery and their care providers of a single faith-based recovery program. This study is guided by a Social Process Theory: Understanding God as a Sponsor. Data analysis will involve N-Vivo-10 software. Results. Multiple units of analysis are necessary for triangulation of the data. The study design would prove how each unit of analysis is necessary and complements the data to provide a holistic perspective. Triangulation is necessary to establish the credibility of the case study. The three subunits of analysis in this study would provide rich, indepth data in a real-world context from a different perspective. This study will explore the holistic concepts of faith, hope, and healing of body, mind, and spirit during the process of recovery from drug addiction. Conclusion. The three subunits within a single case would establish the concept of faith and faith-based recovery process in substance addiction recovery. Even though, the literature suggests that case study design is a difficult task in all of social research method, this study would identify the ways a faith-based recovery program influences the alleviation of fear and the instillation of hope in the recovery process from addiction by collecting a variety of rich contextual data through various sub-units of analysis. Grants. None
