Psycho-spiritual elements of therapy have been neglected by health practitioners managing mentally ill patients. However, recent accumulating evidences have shown that religion and spirituality play important role in helping patients cope with stresses in life, including those due to their illness. An example given is a case of a drug addict fighting his way through his addiction problem, and how religion and spirituality has played an important part in his success.
