Rehabs.com Reviews Contributor

Located just north of Greensborough, Georgia, the South Campus of Penfield Christian Homes provides inpatient substance abuse treatment for adult men. A residential facility for women, the Heart Campus, is located nearby. Treatment is rooted in a combination of Christian faith and science-based recovery. The facility is not medically staffed and does not offer detoxification services.

The daily routine at Penfield is highly structured and rigorous. Patients attend individual and group therapy sessions, bible study classes, devotional services, AA and NA meetings, addiction education courses, relapse prevention workshops, family counseling, and spiritual guidance meetings, if necessary. The facility accommodates about 50 men at a time, and each patient shares a room. Room inspections must be passed on a daily basis, and all patients are assigned chores. When time allows, recreational activities such as basketball, volleyball, ping pong, and softball are offered.

Most reviews of Penfield are positive. One former patient named Ryan took issue with the food, reporting to Rehabs.com that “the patients take turns working in the kitchen and cooking the meals. We once had the same chili for five meals in a row. Also, the portion size was sometimes lacking leaving you still hungry when going to bed.”

All other reviews were positive. P.S. told Rehabs.com that Penfield “isn't luxurious like most rehabs, but I would recommend it.” An anonymous alum wrote to Rehabs.com to say it’s a “good place to learn how to stay clean.” Another anonymous reviewer told CiteHealth.com, “This is a fabulous Christian program with great results as long as the patient is willing to continue to work the program daily.” And an anonymous loved one reported to Rehabs.com that the facility “seemed to really help my friend get clean.”
