ABOUT FAITH CITY

A Christian organization in operation for more than 65 years and located in Amarillo, Texas, Faith City Family Shelter offers a variety of services for individuals struggling with addiction, homelessness, or low income. Offering gender-specific residential treatment for substance use disorder, Faith City is among the 48 percent of facilities in California to provide treatment tailored to women, and among the 45.2 percent of facilities in California to offer treatment tailored to men.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Both residential programs (the Hope for Men Program and the Hope for Women Program) last 12 months. Faith City is one of 94 facilities in California (just 21.8 percent of all facilities in the state) to offer long-term residential programming that lasts longer than 30 days.

Clients attend 12-step groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA), while loved ones can attend Al-Anon groups. Each client receives a personal sponsor and Biblical support through Wednesday Chapel, weekend church services, weekly Bible meetings, and sessions through a personal mentor.

Clients can also attend educational classes and have basic needs met, including housing, food, clothing, and other needs.

Faith City employs case managers, licensed professional counselors, food coordinators, and various directors and administrators. The one person polled by Rehabs.com to date gave the facility five out of five stars for its staff's level of training and experience.
