Faith Home is a Christian rehabilitation center for alcoholics and drug addicts. It operates with the belief that the solutions to problems caused by drugs and alcohol can be found through faith in God. The program is straightforward and has proven successful in the majority of cases. Individuals are provided with a separated and natural environment for eight weeks, away from negative influences. By interacting with others facing similar challenges, they can begin to understand the fundamental truths of life and why they have stumbled along the way.


Since 1966, Faith Home, Inc. has offered residential Christian addiction recovery programming based on the belief that “solutions to drug and alcohol abuse can be found through faith in God along with the 12-step programs of Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous and Al-Anon.”

Currently, the nonprofit manages three residential facilities, one of which is dedicated exclusively to the treatment of women. Medical detox services are not available at this location. Within the state, Faith Home is among 10 substance abuse treatment facilities that provide long-term, residential non-hospital care for more than 30 days.


According to the nonprofit’s admissions page, there is typically a waiting list period of five to six weeks for women seeking treatment at the Abbeville facility. To be admitted, clients must demonstrate 72 hours of sobriety from alcohol and seven days of sobriety from drugs, as well as pass a drug screen and breathalyzer test.

The residential program typically requires an eight-week commitment. Treatment includes Bible study, early morning devotions, 12-step meetings, and regular church services. All residents also participate in a daily work program referred to as “physical therapy,” which involves tasks such as yard work, kitchen work, house cleaning, and facility and grounds maintenance.

Recreational and social activities offered include basketball, hiking, fishing, fitness, ping-pong, foosball, choir, and community service projects such as volunteering at local food banks and nursing homes. Families are invited to join their loved ones in treatment on designated days and times.
