.While there are some treatment centres designed around a Christian model, most treatment centres are not religious. Treatment centres that are based around the 12 steps are not religious, the idea is that you find a power greater than you that doesn’t have to be from any form of a religious background. You will be encouraged to explore and find your own power, which is known as a higher power. A higher power is something that is loving, caring, kind and forgiving, its just something you can put some faith in and trust in. Some people may be scared around the God concept or word, but there is nothing to worry about at all. You can stay clean if your are an Atheist and the treatment centre will support you to find the way around this.
