The Family Medical Leave Act
Addiction and alcoholism are diagnosable and treatable diseases. Getting professional drug addiction treatment can make the difference between succumbing to demoralization and early death, and rebuilding your life. Since alcoholism and substance abuse are considered serious health issues that impede one’s ability to perform normal daily tasks, the provisions within the FMLA and ADA may apply.
Choosing a Quality Christian Alcohol & Drug Rehab
Research has demonstrated the power that faith provides people and its ability to heal. A key component in quality Christian addiction treatment programs is the concept that we cannot do the journey of healing and growing alone. Every aspect of treatment then is done through the lens of Christian drug rehab therapists with expertise in addiction treatment. The right treatment program combined with Christian principles and precepts can save lives.
