Home of Grace for Women Philosophy

Situated along the National Wildlife Sandhill Crane Refuge, Home of Grace for Women offers gender-specific treatment in a secluded and serene setting. The faith-based rehab believes that true recovery from drug and alcohol addiction is dependent upon establishing a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Only then can women begin heal and transform into the individuals God intended them to be. This process takes place over three months and is achieved through classroom work, individual and group counseling, work therapy and community living.

Areas of Specialization

  • Individual Therapy
    This term describes one-on-one therapy, in which a patient and trained counselor, social worker, psychologist or psychiatrist meets privately with a patient to discuss challenges related to lifestyle, work, family and romantic relationships that may have contributed to the development of an addiction.

  • Client & Family Support Groups
    Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.

ABOUT HOME OF GRACE FOR WOMEN

Since 1965, Home of Grace has offered faith-based residential treatment for adult men and women with alcohol and drug addiction. Programs are three-months long and take place in separate men’s and women’s facilities, with the Home of Grace for Women located in Gautier, Miss. The rehab does not treat co-occurring disorders, nor does it allow clients to take anti-depressants while in treatment. Detox services are not provided — clients must be medically stable and able to participate in required activities upon arrival.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

After completing a week-long orientation to the program, residents partake in highly-structured Christian and therapeutic activities. Treatment consists of individual counseling, group therapy, bible study, regular worship and devotional services, and a curriculum of coursework designed to prepare residents for life after rehab. Through classes, clients learn about recovery skills, emotional healing, healthy relationships, parenting skills, and money management.

According to the center’s website, residents are required to participate in “daily therapeutic work assignments” intended to develop a “Christian work ethic.” Such work assignments typically involve tasks related to food service, housekeeping, and facility maintenance. An adult education program is available for individuals without a high school diploma or G.E.D.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

According to the facility’s website, the current executive director is a third-generation family member to step into the role. Other key staff have experience in ministry and faith-based recovery.

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

Bordered by the National Wildlife Sandhill Crane Refuge, the women’s campus offers a serene, natural environment for recovery. Women sleep in twin beds in shared residences, and have access to an on-site craft room and exercise equipment. Smoking is allowed in designated areas, and television may be watched on occasion, though only Christian-based and PG-rated videos are allowed. Recreational activities include basketball, volleyball, choir, and interpretive dance. Residents are allowed one 15-minute phone call per week and a monthly visit with family only.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

Alumni reviews for this facility are positive and noted the emphasis on its religious components. One former client polled by Rehabs.com commented on the rigidity of the program, but gave her experience five-stars for every metric, including family participation and counseling options. “This facility stressed the importance of having a higher power that is God and to explore and depend on the Strength found in Him,” she wrote. Another anonymous alum rated her experience mostly four- and five-stars.

On the facility’s Facebook page, which it is able to manage, Home of Grace for Women received a high-rating of 4.9 out of five stars based on 70 reviews.[1] Reviews echoed the heavy emphasis on Christianity. “The support and out pouring of love i recieved there from not only staff, but clients and supporters.
