Mike, for example, gave treatment effectiveness, accommodations, and meals four out of five stars. “After 25 years of drug addiction $3000.00 was a small price to pay for sobriety,” he wrote. He also stated that the program provided “outside counseling with pastors and addiction counselors” once he completed the program.
D.C., an alum who sought treatment a decade ago, credits the program for his sobriety. “I was a resident at the Home of Grace 10 years ago…It was the place I began feeling the transformations that God had in store for my life. The facilities have changed since then but the love I felt there is still alive.” He did, however, add a caveat: “There is not a tremendous clinical approach; dual diagnosis clients need a more specialized setting.”
The 286 people who left reviews on Home of Grace’s Facebook page, which the center has the ability to manage, provided an average overall rating of 4.8 out of five stars. However, the reviews are both for the men and women’s programs.

Two loved ones gave five out of five stars for treatment effectiveness and staff support.
“The Home of Grace is a Christian based recovery center. I honestly believe that unless Christ is at the head of the recovery process, no one will ever beat their addiction,” another loved one wrote.
