There is an article about the Spiritist Psychiatric Hospitals in Brazil. Excellent review of what Spiritism can do to help. The article reports a 90% success rate in helping addicts regain a normal life, which is astounding.
Here is the abstract:
There are 50 Spiritist psychiatric hospitals in Brazil, offering inpatient and outpatient services that utilize an integrative approach to recovery, stressing the spiritual alongside physical and emotional therapies. Few people outside Brazil know of them. This article describes their philosophy, successes, as well as the treatments they use—and how they are a valuable resource for sensitives, creatives, and visionaries. In the near future one of these hospitals is planning on opening an English-speaking ward. They take a very cautious approach to medications and never use ECT. I will post updates on the MIA website as I know more of the details.
