Faith Home Inc - Greenwood Men's Facility Philosophy
Faith Home is a Christian rehabilitation center for alcoholics and drug addicts. It is based on the fundamental belief that the solutions to problems caused by drugs and alcohol can be found through faith in God. The program is simple, yet it is the answer with the majority of cases. A man or woman is provided with a separated life for eight weeks, close to nature, and away from unsettling influences. By studying and working with others like themselves, they can begin to understand the basic truths of life and why they have faltered along the way.
Areas of Specialization
Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.
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 FAITH HOME, INC. — GREENWOOD
Faith Home Inc., a Christian nonprofit rehabilitation and recovery center, is based in Greenwood, S.C., and operates three residential facilities. According to the facility’s website, the flagship men’s facility in Greenwood is situated on 67 acres of peaceful, wooded countryside. Detoxification services are not provided at this facility.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
According to the website, the waiting period for admission to the men’s home is typically three to four weeks. Once admitted, residents must commit to an eight-week program that is faith-based and relies on 12-step principles.
The facility’s website indicates that enrolled participants are required to attend bible studies, morning devotions, chapel services, and daily 12-step meetings. They are also expected to participate in a mandatory “physical therapy” component consisting of chores and facility maintenance. Residents volunteer at community places such as the food bank, local nursing homes, churches, and numerous United Way agencies. Work is another important part of the program.
The facility’s website specifies that Faith Home does not allow participants to conduct any legal or medical “personal business” during treatment. Also, the application form points out that residents are required to be 72 hours free of alcohol and seven days free of other drugs.
The organization’s website is keen to point out that this is not a medical facility, which suggests that there is no medical doctor on-site. No additional information is provided regarding the staff member's credentials. Five individuals polled by Rehabs.com gave an average of 3.8 out of five stars for the staff’s level of training and experience.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Photographs on Faith Home's website indicate that residents of the Greenwood facility share small bedrooms for two. Residents are encouraged to enjoy individual and team activities including hiking, fishing, basketball, ping-pong, football, and choir. They also maintain a greenhouse and a garden which helps feed them.
The facility’s website also details strict rules about visitation. All visitors must provide proof of their relationship to the resident (e.g. birth certificates or marriage certificates).
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
Reviews from nine alumni submitted to Rehabs.com at the time of this writing were mixed with six overall positive and three negative. The eight alumni who evaluated the program's treatment effectiveness gave an average of 3.5 stars. Two alumni polled on the staff's level of training and the overall quality of individual and group counseling gave perfect five-star ratings for these metrics. Several alumni felt the program change their life and gave them the tools to live free from drugs and alcohol. “They helped put God active in my life! Taught me how to forgive, let go of the things that kept me relapsing, gave me the tools to stay clean," C.M.B. wrote.
Alumni who gave negative reviews mentioned a lack of qualified staff. "No trained staff! They force religion,” one anonymous alum wrote, adding they “work you to much!” In addition, another anonymous alum wrote "Staff is not qualified to deal with situations."
In addition to Rehabs.com reviews, 15 individuals on Google left the facility an average rating of 4.4 out of five stars. "They never judged me and welcomed me with open arms, and loved me with all my flaws. Great place that changed my life," alum Ben wrote on Google.
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

Another anonymous Rehabs.com survey respondent felt "counseling services" were a strength and concluded: “My friend attended this program and recovered from an addiction and is now doing very well.”
On average, four loved ones rated the facility 4.5 out of five stars for how likely they were to recommend it, 4.25 stars for the staff's level of experience and training, and 3.5 for the exercise and leisure activities. The program's holistic offerings receive a lower average rating of 2.33 stars.
