Reply to "ACES and religious upbringing"

I don't have any resources for evidence based studies but in my personal experience, having a foundation in faith (administered in a healthy way) was a huge contributing factor in my ability to overcome. It is also the one factor that I have witnessed between long-term (5yr or more) for persons in addiction recovery. I have yet to meet a recovering addict with consistent and "true" recovery who does not have a grounded faith. On the flip side, persons I have met throughout my 10yr journey who had unhealthy introductions to religion, per se, have an extremely difficult time utilizing a faith for additional strength. Not sure if that's clear? Happy to share more as needed, if I come across any studies I'll make sure to let you know :-)
