In the shared clinical and pastoral experience of the co-authors, addicts are highly spiritual individuals who lack the faith apparatus to make a connection with their spiritual drive. They regress to a non-ordinary spiritual experience via the addiction of their choice: be it alcohol, drugs, food, sex, gambling, pornography, internet or addictive relationships.

Our experience has shown that when their faith deficit is restored, it has a salutary impact on their recovery, sobriety and healing. This book explores the process of faith restoration from clinical and pastoral experience as well as from the perspectives of Jungian psychology.
