The focus of this study is psycho-spiritual approach to the person who has experienced drug addiction such as loss of awareness and mind (Beck & Weishaar, 2000), physical and mental weakness (Sussman & Ames, 2001), anti-social behaviour (Sarell & Sarel, 1990), and problems in the school (Storr, 2012). Thus, a more in-depth study of the role of psycho-spiritual on this problem is required in order to increase mentality, conscious mind, and behaviour as a normal personality. To accomplish this, the researchers intent to explore the experiences of four persons who recover from addiction and undergo Islamic therapeutic intervention at Inabah Centre in Tasikmalaya and Madani Health Care in Jakarta, Indonesia. The finding revealed that they get enlightened mind, consciousness, reflections and regretful feeling, self confidence, and persistent of doing good deeds after going through a period of recovery process. All the aspects of the findings were generated in the four themes, i.e. reflection feeling (RF), insight awareness (IA), expression attitude (EA), and brightness image (BI). Some aspects of the Islamic psycho- spiritual are perspective also explainded in the discussion to make it a valuable force in preventing, treating, and handling the addiction problems in the society.
