Abstract

This article reviews: (1) the relative importance of spirituality and religion in Switzerland and the United States, (2) the rationale for faith-based addiction intervention programs and the drawbacks of measurement approaches, and (3) results from a pilot study exploring the meaning of spirituality and religiosity from the consumer's perspective. Twenty-three patients entering the Swiss Südhang clinic in-patient alcohol user treatment program during the first five months in 2012 participated upon their admission in a video-taped drawing task, designed to provide their personal visualized definitions of the terms "spirituality" and "religiosity." Nine dimensions emerged pointing to a high complexity of the concepts.
