Cumberland Heights Spiritual Care Services
Addiction is a disease of painful disconnection. Even as we begin to know we need help, we are likely to push others away. Sometimes, the feelings of guilt and shame, fear and rage, can be overwhelming. But, there is help. There is hope. You are not alone.
The purpose of Spiritual Care Services at Cumberland Heights is to show you there is hope in recovery. We believe regaining the connection to yourself, to those you love, and to the joy of life are at the heart of recovery.
The key concepts of spirituality at Cumberland Heights are that you are the explorer, the one who journeys, and you define what spirituality means to you. Spirituality is about Practice. It is about those things you choose to do every day which help you feel connected to yourself, those you love and something greater than you, whatever that turns out to be.
We offer services to those of all faiths and none, those who are angry, those who feel ashamed and those who feel numb. Our hands are held out to you!
What does Spiritual Care and Practice look like at Cumberland Heights?
We work in groups where we talk about issues like anger, resentment and forgiveness, or grief and loss, or shame and guilt, or what the difference is between religion and spirituality. We also offer individual sessions where you work with one of our Spiritual Directors.
Our spiritual care directors use many techniques including mindfulness meditation which is a kind of ‘being in the moment’ meditation practice known to decrease relapse risk and a labyrinth experience, modeled after the one in Chartes Cathedral in France, which helps you to gradually let go of all your worries on the way in, stopping in the center to relax, and taking something a little new with you as you walk out.
We also offer non-denominational chapel service with your family on Sunday morning, sober Seder with other recovering friends and monthly communion service in the Paschall Davis Chapel.
