ABOUT HOUSE OF HOPE BRAZIL
Located in Brazil, Ind., House of Hope Mission Bible Training Center is a branch of Mission Teens, Inc., a nonprofit, nondenominational Christian organization that offers addiction treatment. This center’s program consists of a residential Christian discipleship program for adults aged 18 and older.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
According to the facility’s course description, the program seems to last around six months at a minimum, the first condition of entry is that clients be “willing to seek God for answers to their life.”
Prospective clients will also be asked to meet the staff before they’re accepted into the program, and will be required to comply with blood testing. The center notes that only emergency medical care will be available during the program, and thus that “any serious health or legal problems should be taken care of before coming into the center.”
Residents spend five and a half hours each day in Bible study and worship, such that the course is equivalent to approximately one year of Bible school. Residents pass through four phases of discipleship, gaining more responsibilities and privileges at each stage. During an initial two-month induction period, responsibilities are limited to chores, and privileges to sending and receiving mail. In subsequent phases, clients gain job responsibilities as well as the right to phone calls, family visits, and weekends at home. In the final phase of treatment, the client learns to counsel others as he or she was counseled when entering the program.
A call for volunteers posted on the facility’s website also indicates that reading tuition, GED help, and transportation are sometimes provided.
According to the facility’s website, almost all staff members are graduates of the program. The person polled by Best-rehabs.com to date on the staff’s level of training and experience gave it five out of five stars. The other individual gave five out of five stars for the staff’s support.
