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

  • 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.

  • Holistic Therapy
    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.

ABOUT FAITH HOME INC GREENWOOD MEN’S FACILITY

Faith Home Inc. is one of South Carolina’s 38 private, non-profit rehab facilities, offering a faith-based (Christian) residential recovery program. Located in Greenwood, S.C., Faith Home Inc operates three residential facilities including separate men’s and women’s facilities. The flagship men’s facility in Greenwood is situated on 67 acres of peaceful, wooded countryside. Detox services are not provided at the facility.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Possibly requiring a wait, Greenwood Men’s Home's waiting period for admission is typically three to four weeks. Before admission, clients are required to be 72-hours free of alcohol and seven days free of other drugs.

Once admitted, residents must commit to an eight-week program that is faith-based and relies on 12-step principles for treatment plan development. The 12-step program is a common peer-support method of treatment utilized in 47.7% of facilities in the U.S..

Core programming and treatment approaches are heavily influenced by Christian principles and philosophies. In treatment, clients are required to attend Bible studies, morning devotions, chapel services, and daily 12-step meetings.

Clients are also expected to participate in a mandatory physical therapy component, which consists of chores and facility maintenance. Clients help maintain the living spaces and use chores as a form of work therapy. Residents also volunteer within the community, which may include donating time at local food banks, nursing homes, churches, and numerous United Way agencies.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

Faith Home Inc is not a medical facility and does not have any medical personnel on staff. The treatment team consists of clergy, administrators, and volunteers. To date, the individuals polled by Rehabs.com regarding the facility's staff generally approved with their aptitude.

Staff Experience and Training: 3.8/5

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

At the time of this writing, 10 alumni provided feedback about Faith Home to Rehabs.com. The feedback was mixed, with seven positive and three negative reviews. While most alumni appreciated the faith-based approach, others felt that the staff was unqualified.

Offering perfect five-star ratings for the level of staff support, the effectiveness of group counseling, and the facility's ability to resolve conflict, alum C.M.B. wrote: "Taught me how to forgive, let go of the things that kept me relapsing, gave me the tools to stay clean!"

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."

On Google, Faith Home received an average of 4.7 out of five stars from 60 reviews to date.[1] While some of the reviews focus on the facility’s community thrift store, reviews about the treatment program centered on the faith-based programming, “nice” staff members, and no-cost program. As Cindy wrote: “The residents are not charged for anything. They operate on donations only.”

On its Facebook page, which the facility can manage, Faith Hope Friends as a whole received 4.9 out of five stars.[2] Of the 157 reviews, 147 were five out of five star reviews. Alumni described the facility as home-like and life-saving. Many of the reviews specifically commented on the religious focus. For instance, Caylee wrote how she “Got back my relationship with my Lord and Savior,” while Michael added: “The Spirit of God is alive in this place, and there is an amazing staff that work there for the glory of the Lord.”

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

The six loved ones polled by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing gave positive reviews. Most of the loved ones gave positive feedback about the level of family participation and how it impacted their loved ones. Specifically, one 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.”

In addition, loved ones polled on the matter reported they'd strongly recommend the facility and appreciated the facility's visitor policies and the ease of communication with clients.

Family Participation: 4.3/5
Likelihood to Recommend: 4.5/5
Connectivity/Visitor Policy: 4.5/5

However, loved ones gave mixed opinions concerning holistic offerings and counseling options, many offering lower two- and three-star ratings for these survey metrics.

FINANCING

Faith Home Inc subsists on donations and revenue generated by its thrift store, which allows all admitted residents to enroll in the program free of charge. There are only eight facilities in South Carolina that provide treatment free of charge. Individuals polled by Rehabs.com on the matter appreciated the facility's cost.

Affordability: 4.6/5

CONCLUSION

Faith Home, Inc hosts many social events in the community to help raise the facility’s influence in the community, raise awareness of its services, and fundraise.

Participants are given duties that they are capable of performing, they have faith based counseling and are taught useful skills that they can use to seek employment when they leave the facility. Group Homes are available on a temporary bases with counseling. They could use more efficient buildings. I could visit, I know the program works, the return rate is much lower than normal and I would recommend this facility. If you do not have the money to pay they will work with you to get you into the program.

Faith Home-Greenwood is hallowed ground. I wound up there broken and done with life 25 months ago today. For ten years I had wanted to die and had attempted suicide twice in that time. The only things that eased the pain( albeit temporarily) were alcohol and drugs....and those had ceased to work. I was driven there from Southeast Texas by my father, who knew of Faith Home because an employee of his had gone there. I was introduced to AA, given a job, and over the course of the next 2 months, a host of spiritual tools that have allowed me to lead a reasonably happy life free of the alcohol and drugs I relied on for so long. Sure, there were a few guys there who weren't looking to recover. Nobody forced me to hang with them though. The vast majority of guys(80+%, I'd say.) wanted the same thing I did. I haven't had to put a drink or drug in since November 8, 2013; the day I got to Faith Home. For that I will be forever grateful to God, Faith Home, on staff member in particular, and all the great friends I met over the two months that turned out to be the start of my life.

I do not think the men and women should be around each other because it's temptation for all. We are here to get better and I feel like with the women being around the men is NOT GOOD AT ALL!!!

It is a faith based facility that allows patients the opportunity to learn and stay on track with the program. Patients are required to work and are encouraged and praised for their efforts. However, it is dependant on donations from the community. I found the faculty were sympathetic and encouraging toward the patients. The strength of the organization rest on this.

Strengths: counseling services. Weaknesses: some people are admitted that should not be and are not there to get true help. My friend attended this program and recovered from an addiction and is now doing very well.
