Home With A Heart Philosophy

The Home With A Heart is a cost-free residential substance abuse treatment center for chemically-dependent men struggling with addiction. Utilizing a Christ-centered approach to addiction treatment, The Home With A Heart offers an intensive eight-week residential program based on biblical principles, daily devotions, and the 12 Steps of Recovery. The Home With A Heart is a non-profit addiction treatment facility and is supported through the generosity of local sponsors.

Areas of Specialization

  • Residential Treatment
    Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.

  • 12-Step
    The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.

ABOUT HOME WITH A HEART

Home With A Heart, located in Liberty, S.C, offers residential treatment to adult men struggling with alcohol and substance abuse. Set on 29 acres of rural land, the facility is a cost-free, nonprofit treatment center using a 12-step and Bible-centric approach to recovery. The residential rehab accommodates clients who have already completed detox and are ready to make a commitment, as described on the facility’s website, to “being delivered through the love of Jesus Christ.”

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Treatment is based on the idea that addiction is an affliction curable by belief in Jesus Christ.The format of the program is traditional 12-Step as it relates to the Bible.
The eight-week program offers a core curriculum of Bible studies, Bible classes, and lectures. Group studies and work therapy are the two main activities of the program. Attendance at nightly Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and/or Narcotics Anonymous (NA) meetings is required and family members are encouraged to attend these meetings as well.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

The program is run by peer counselors and preachers. According to the facility’s website, more than 50 area preachers volunteer their time to come and hold daily devotions with the men, as well as conduct bible studies and teach 12-step principles.

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

Clients are housed in one of two 3,700 square-foot dormitories. The 2,800 square-foot chapel has a fully equipped commercial kitchen and provides space for classes. Clients are responsible for the daily operation of the rehab, including cooking, cleaning and laundry. The facility is tobacco-free and smoking is prohibited anywhere on campus.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

At the time of this writing there have been two alumni polled by Rehabs.com. Both alumni had very positive experiences at the facility. The first alum, T.E., gave the facility five out of five stars for treatment effectiveness, accommodations & amenities, and meals & nutrition; the second alum, T.Q.B. also gave these metrics five stars each.

T.E. strongly agreed that the facility strictly offered a faith-based program; that the facility staff were experienced and well-trained; and that the facility was clean and well maintained. He felt that a strength of the facility was that the program helped him to, “find my problem and showed me how to move on.” He did not identify any weaknesses of the program and also added that, “They showed a man can change and no longer depend on drugs or alcohol to get thru life.”

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

The anonymous female loved one spoke highly of the facility and gave the facility four out of five stars for treatment effectiveness, accommodations & amenities, and meals & nutrition. She strongly agreed that the facility was clean and well maintained and that the facility’s cell phone and visitation policy was fair. She was neutral when asked if family and loved ones were able to participate in treatment through facility programming but did agree that the facility staff were experienced and well-trained.

The loved one felt that a strength of the facility was, “They show that there is another way to living a fulfilled life without the use of drugs. They show the unconditional love of Christ, they can relate with the residents emotional and physical needs.” She felt that the facility could improve upon the space available in the program as the waiting is can be long at times. She also added, “When you have decided that you want help and are ready to get help, this is a great place… you commit to the program, they will help.”

WHAT STAFF SAY

At the time of this writing, there has been one current staff member, A.R., who was polled by Rehabs.com. This reviewer gave the facility excellent marks across several different metrics. A.R. reported that he is a member of the executive/management team and also completed treatment at the facility himself 18 years ago.

On a scale of one to five stars, A.R. gave four stars for the facility’s protocols surrounding patient treatment/care; for the facility’s respect for protocols surrounding patient privacy, and for the facility’s ability to inspire loyalty/sense of community among patients.

When asked about the strengths of the facility, A.R. wrote “GREAT SUCCESS RATE OF MEN STAYING CLEAN/SOBER BECAUSE OF THE FAITH BASED PART OF THE PROGRAM” When asked about weaknesses he wrote, “AFTER CARE FINDING WORK AND TRANSITIONAL HOUSING FOR THE MEN.” Overall, A.R. highly recommended the program and agreed that he would recommend this facility to a friend or loved one who was considering rehab.

Meals: Carbs mostly, and anyone in the industry knows addicts need extra nutrition to recover from the ravages on their body imposed by drugs and alcohol. Counselors are RECENTLY recovered addicts, many with less than a year clean themselves. This is a "good ol' boy" facility, if you're not white, BEWARE. They USE the addicts that come in to do extreme amounts of labor... plus they get food stamps and serve sub standard meals, so they're making bank when you really add it all up....donations they take in, labor and food stamps they collect. Most of all, after exposure to the program, it is clear that much of their program is not based on industry standards, but is set up and run by non professionals who do it the way they want to, and some of what they do is questionable. We do not recommend this program to those serious about getting clean and staying clean...it's a fly by the seat of your pants organization. Free is not a good thing in this case, but is more like desperate people who literally have nowhere to go can at least get a roof over their head. We are praying for the Lord to rectify the many things we know are sub standard about this organization and their program and their "limited clean time counselors" that are supposed to help others get clean, because they are doing this in God's Name, and that upsets us significantly. We know specifics and we want that those who do what they do and don't do here are made to answer for their conduct and greedy ways. Most of all, if you or a loved one are sincere about getting clean, look elsewhere to ensure your needs are met.

Helped me find my problem and showed me how to move on. They showed a man can change and no longer depend on drugs or alcohol to get thru life. But the man himself has to want to change for himself. Not for mom's. Not for a wife or girl friend. Not for some judge or court official.

They show that there is another way to living a fulfilled life without the use of drugs. They show the unconditional love of Christ, they can relate with the residents emotional and physical needs. Not enough space waiting list long at times. When you have decided that you want help and are ready to get help, this is a great place. They won't waste their time and resources on anyone who don't really want to be there. you commit to the program, they will help.

Came away with my dignity and self-respect restored, along with many tools to help me deal with my addiction. This is a tough love facility, designed around a Christ based formula for total life changing rehabilitation. A powerful experience and a no brainer if taken seriously.
