Faith Communities are well positioned throughout the country to help make a difference with addiction, but very few of them do anything about it. We want to change that.

Addiction is the number one health crisis facing our society today, and it is continually growing worse.
How do we as people of faith respond?
The Center of Addiction & Faith provides essential education, inspiration, and practical tools for ministry. These tools help develop leadership and create congregation vitalization.
Learn how to help your congregation and others
The Center of Addiction & Faith is committed to bringing spiritual leaders together, to learn how faith communities can better understand addiction, and to better address the spiritual needs of those afflicted. There are so many who need spiritual care, and faith communities can do so much more to help.
We ask that you utilize this website as a resource and guide, but also plan to attend our annual Addiction & Faith Conference in Minneapolis, MN.
The role of Faith
Ministering to the whole person
We believe, as many do in the addiction treatment field, that faith plays an essential role in the healing process.
While it is not completely understood why, it is generally accepted that medicine and therapy alone will not help those struggling with addiction, unless there is a faith component.
Many people of faith believe that no one is better equipped than the church, to share and teach about God’s unconditional love, acceptance, inclusion, and healing.
