Christian Books on Overcoming Drug Addiction

Christian books on addiction

When you are struggling with an addiction to drugs, you have a lot of resources available to you. Addiction treatment is the first place to start your journey toward recovery. You may also want some reading material that will inspire and guide you. There are a number of Christian books on overcoming drug addiction offering guidance, motivation, and hope.

Freedom from Addiction

Feeling like you’re locked in a cycle of addiction? Learn how to free yourself in Freedom from Addiction, Breaking the Bondage of Addiction and Finding Freedom in Christ by Neil T. Anderson, Julia Quarles, and Mike Quarles. You’ll read the story of how Mike Quarles overcame his debilitating addiction to alcohol. You’ll also be inspired by the message that true freedom comes from realizing your identity in Christ, a message that is the central theme of this book.

God is for You

Another inspiring true-life story comes from Jerry Dunn in his book God is for the Alcoholic. Dunn knows first-hand that there is hope. In a Texas prison, he picked up a Bible and realized that God was providing his escape from his addiction to alcohol. He knew the road to overcome his addiction would be long and difficult, but he also knew that he could do it with God’s help and with diligence, patience, and commitment.

Healing Your Scars

Drug addiction can devastate your life now and make it difficult for you to see a positive way forward. Healing the Scars of Addiction by Gregory L. Jantz, with contributions by Ann McMurray, addresses the wreckage of addiction that lies scattered around you. If you are struggling with overcoming drug addiction, attempting to live in recovery from your addiction, or seeking to understand the mind of someone you love who is addicted, this book can help.

Jantz will guide you through answering some tough questions: Am I an addict? How can I put my life back together? Where do I go from here? This book gives you a holistic approach to healing so you can reclaim your life and move forward in hope.

Break the Entanglement

When you are struggling to break free from your addiction, Entangled by Addiction: Set Free in Christ by Caitanya Champion can show you how to find and achieve freedom in Christ. You can move from your pain, hopelessness, brokenness, and misery toward healing, peacefulness, deliverance, and being set free. You can know freedom from addiction through the power of Christ.

What You Worship

Another book that can inspire you toward a new path is Addictions: A Banquet in the Grave by Edward T. Welch. The author writes about how the hopelessness of the cycle of “sickness, recovery, relapse” can be replaced with the Biblical view of sin, salvation, and sanctification. Welch guides you through facing the fact that what and who you worship will control your life. True freedom when overcoming drug addiction comes through the cross.

Learning to Breathe

In addiction treatment, the 12-Step program can be critical to your success as you recover from addiction. Richard Rohr’s book Breathing Under Water: Spirituality and the Twelve Steps makes the case that the 12-Step program can rescue you when you are drowning in your addiction, even when you don’t realize it. Rohr emphasizes that you must learn to breathe under water, to survive the tidal wave of your addiction and compulsive behavior.

In his book, he identifies the Christian principles contained in the steps, connecting the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous with the gospel. He offers encouragement and inspiration for making your life manageable as you deal with overcoming your addiction.

Overcoming Obstacles

In a first-hand account, author Anthony Acampora describes the incredible impact that God’s word can have on your broken life. In Overcoming Emotional Obstacles through Faith: Navigating the Mind Field, Acampora tells his own story of how he overcame tremendous suffering and loss through Christ. He shares his experience applying his faith and the principles of the Bible in overcoming seemingly insurmountable adversity. His book offers real-life examples of how you can apply God’s word to radically transform your life as you overcome your addiction.
