Drug Rehab Washington DC

Regardless of the range of diverse theoretical or spiritual faiths, it is surprising how many programs rely on a spiritual element. Of course, physiology and psychology play a significant part because drug rehab does not involve magic wands; it does involve science. But it is interesting that in addition to the scientific grounding, spirituality is a strong factor of success in drug rehab programs.
