Abstract
S pirituality has longed played an influential role in the treatment of addictions. Even as improving technology has expanded the treatment options for addiction professionals, the incorporation of spiritual practices remains a mainstay in clinical practice. Beyond the therapeutic relationships between patients and individual professionals, addiction treatment often occurs in sectarian agency settings where spiritual symbols, beliefs, and practices shape the treatment milieu. Whereas an abundance of research literature examines the role of spirituality as the primary or confounding variable in the assessment of treatment outcomes, the ethical and unethical use of spirituality in addiction therapy is almost nonexistent. As a result, addiction programs are left to infuse spirituality as they see fit, with little evidence-based guidance to ensure best practices. The findings from a study that examined the fine line between the innovative use of spirituality in addiction therapy and the unethical coercion of unwanted religious persuasion will be discussed during this presentation. Additionally, the presentation will provide practical guidelines for the ethical incorporation of spirituality in addiction treatment programs
