Home of Grace for Women Philosophy

Situated along the National Wildlife Sandhill Crane Refuge, Home of Grace for Women offers gender-specific treatment in a secluded and serene setting. The faith-based rehab believes that true recovery from drug and alcohol addiction is dependent upon establishing a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Only then can women begin heal and transform into the individuals God intended them to be. This process takes place over three months and is achieved through classroom work, individual and group counseling, work therapy and community living.

Areas of Specialization

  • Client & Family Support Groups
    Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.

  • Individual Therapy
    This term describes one-on-one therapy, in which a patient and trained counselor, social worker, psychologist or psychiatrist meets privately with a patient to discuss challenges related to lifestyle, work, family and romantic relationships that may have contributed to the development of an addiction.

Review by Rehabs.com Contributors


Home of Grace for Women, located in Gautier, Miss., offers residential treatment to women struggling with drug and alcohol addiction. Home of Grace has been in operation since 1965, and their mission is to offer “freedom from addiction through Christ-centered recovery.” The organization also has a residential treatment facility for men located in Vancleave, Miss.


The facility’s treatment program follows spiritual principles rooted in Christianity. To be admitted, clients must download and read the facility’s campus packet, complete an application, and schedule an intake appointment. Most clients remain in treatment for three months. According to the facility website, 73% of residents who enroll complete the program.

Throughout treatment, clients receive individual and group counseling, worship and devotions, and classroom instruction. A GED course is available and required for all clients who have not received a high school diploma. Treatment occurs in two phases, with each phase requiring completion of specific goals and responsibilities. Emphasis is placed on the spiritual disciplines necessary for a lasting recovery. Home of Grace for Women offers unique programming including a women’s dance team.


There is currently no information provided by Home of Grace regarding its treatment staff. However, three alumni polled by Rehabs.com all rated the facility with five out of five stars when asked about staff experience and support.


The women’s facility of Home of Grace is nestled against the National Wildlife Sandhill Crane Refuge, and is designed to help residents connect to nature. The facility is equipped with a dining hall, cottages, classrooms, private counseling area, quiet group counseling areas, a craft room, and group conversation areas.


At the time of this writing there have been three alumni polled by Rehabs.com. All three former clients said they would strongly recommend treatment at Home of Grace to others. The anonymous clients gave the facility four and five out of five stars for treatment effectiveness, four and five stars for accommodations and amenities, and five stars for meals and nutrition. One alum agreed that there are many counseling options to choose from and that the facility is adequately equipped and staffed to treat co-occurring mental health problems. All three alumni strongly agreed that facility staff are experience and well-trained. One reviewer felt that a strength of the facility was that it was “spirit based,” but said she felt that the facility could improve upon how rigid it was. Another alum added, “This program saved my life & I've been sober 7 yrs. IT WAS WORTH IT A THOUSAND TIMES OVER!!!”


At the time of this writing there has been one friend or family member of a client polled by Rehabs.com. The reviewer gave the facility poor ratings, but had nice things to say about Home of Grace when asked for more detail. The anonymous loved one gave the facility one out of five stars for treatment effectiveness, one star for accommodations and amenities, and one star for meals and nutrition. He strongly disagreed that there are many counseling options to choose from, strongly disagreed that the facility is adequately equipped and staffed to treat co-occurring mental health problems, and strongly disagreed that facility staff are experienced and well-trained. He felt that a strength of the facility was the spiritual component of treatment, and said “they are very pricey” when asked about weaknesses. He also added that “They are very nice and open if you have any problems they are more than willing to sit down and help.”


At the time of this writing, there was one former staff member, S.C, who was polled by Rehabs.com. This reviewer gave Home of Grace excellent marks across several different metrics and said they would recommend the facility to a friend or loved one considering rehab. This employee was a member of the addiction aid staff. On a scale of one to five stars, S.D. gave the facility five out of five stars for overall quality of treatment. They gave a five-star rating when asked to rate the experience and treatment credentials of the addiction treatment team. They gave a five-star rating when asked if facility leadership is able to inspire loyalty and a sense of community among patients. When asked about the strengths of the facility, S.D. wrote “Clients have said that they have attended many secular rehabs before H.O.G. and they say it took God to make the difference.” When asked about the weaknesses they wrote “favoritism” they also wrote, “I learned so much, just by being there. I was humbled."


The cost of the three-month treatment program at the facility is $5,000, but donations from churches, individuals, and corporations allow Home of Grace to offer a $2,500 scholarship to every applicant, which brings the total cost of treatment down to $2,500. The facility does not accept insurance and does not offer payment plans or sliding options. The full cost of treatment must be paid up front at intake. Clients are encouraged to contact the facility directly for additional information regarding the cost of treatment.

Great program. A solid 13 weeks. Only problem is they dont practice what they preach. Jesus is very forgiving. My son broke a rule that they admitted he had just a small involvement in. He did 11 weeks of solid work there. Instead of finding a more suitable punishment they threw him out with 2 weeks left. Not very Christian in my book.

Faith based? I my brother's fiancee, worked hard to raise money for the program. She met with a lady and she said this wasn't the place for her? They turn down girls with adiction at a rehab? After the girl workdd so hard to raise money from family and churchs, aND friends. This place gets donations from the community and businesses plus $2500 from clients. Please tell everyone you know how godly this place really is. Turning away people wanting help is just appalling! I will make sure that I take every step in showing the public how this place is ran!
