The Recovery Place\u2019s Christian drug rehab program adopts the name \u201cThree Strands,\u201d a title that represents the Christian trinity, the 3rd Step of Alcoholics Anonymous, and the three prongs of holistic living \u2013 all woven together to create a strong cord that binds clients to recovery. Ft. Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) June 3, 2014 \u2013 The Christian addiction treatment program at The Recovery Place announces its new name, Three Strands, a title rich with symbolic references to faith and recovery. The name \u201cThree Strands\u201d evokes the Christian trinity -- the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit -- as well as the three prongs of healthy, holistic living -- mind, body and spirit. The theme of \u201cthrees\u201d is also in harmony with the third step of Alcoholics Anonymous, which relates to turning one\u2019s will over to a higher power. \u201cThe number three is a powerful symbol throughout Christian teachings as well as recovery,\u201d said Three Strands\u2019 director Jonathan Benz. \u201cIt represents many important concepts, including the relationship among counselors, the group and the individual -- a reminder that by coming together with others, we strengthen ouurselves.\u201d The program-naming is part of a broader goal to develop a truly differentiated treatment option for Christians in recovery. Whereas many Christian rehab programs are essentially a \u201ctrack\u201d within a standard treatment program that offers an occasional Celebrate Recovery group or transportation to a local church, Three Strands is a comprehensive, fully integrated faith-centered program. Clients participate in traditional therapies, including educational groups, individual, group and family counseling, and relapse prevention planning, but treatment also includes: \tChristian support groups and therapy groups facilitated by a\u00a0Christian addiction counselor \tIntegration of the Christian 12 steps to recovery with biblical principles and teachings \tOpportunities to build relationships within a healthy Christian community \tDr. Bren\u00e9 Brown\u2019s Daring Way\u2122 Shame Resilience Curriculum In addition to separate groups and programming, Three Strands has a dedicated staff, which includes Benz, a master\u2019s level clinician, author and ordained minister, as well as a diverse clinical team made up of master\u2019s level therapists, some of whom are able to provide therapy and services in Spanish and Haitian Creole. The program also enjoys a diverse client base. \u201cWe honor and welcome Christian diversity,\u201d said Bob Lehmann, executive director at The Recovery Place. \u201cOur clients come from all different denominations, including individuals who are seeking but do not yet have a strong spiritual connection.\u201d The program\u2019s wait list is a testament to the accepting, nurturing environment created there. \u201cThis is a community of people who are focused on getting better. They know that faith is an important part of sobriety and they want their faith integrated into their recovery and their lives,\u201d Benz said. \u201cWe do not push spirituality on anyone. Instead, we create an invitation to come into a spiritual, sober way of life.\u201d \u201cThree Strands is a lot of things: it\u2019s unity, it\u2019s fellowship, it\u2019s faith,\u201d said Lehmann. \u201cWhereas one thread alone is easy to break, three strands woven together create a strong cord that binds clients to recovery.\u201d About The Recovery Place The Recovery Place is one of Florida\u2019s premier drug and alcohol treatment centers.
