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 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.
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.
