Recently, I read a leaflet from a missionary whose work I admire. They said when they were first called, they were scared to step out and move far away from all that was familiar. They finally did go in faith and have had a successful ministry overseas since then. The story made me wonder how many people feel the call to missions but never overcome the fear. That led me to the thought that the mission field is all around us, right where we are.
Drug rehabilitation (often drug rehab or just rehab) is a term for the processes of medical or psychotherapeutic treatment, for dependency on psychoactive substances such as alcohol, prescription drugs, and street drugs such as cocaine, heroin or amphetamines. The general intent is to enable the patient to cease substance abuse, in order to avoid the psychological, legal, financial, social, and physical consequences that can be caused, especially by extreme abuse. Treatment includes medication for depression or other disorders, counseling by experts and sharing of experience with other addicts. Some rehab centers include meditation and spiritual wisdom in the treatment process.
