About Shepherds Fold Rehabilitation for Men with Addictions

Reviewed by Our Contributors


Shepherds Fold Rehabilitation for Men with Addictions, located in Cardwell, Mo., offers a faith-based residential treatment program for men struggling with substance abuse and other addictions. The facility was first founded in October of 2008 by a man who had once struggled with addiction himself. The Shepherd’s Folds website states that the mission of the program is to help men to overcome their addictions through developing a relationship with Jesus Christ. This is one of the state's just 88 (34.2 percent) treatment facilities offering a male-specific programming track.


The facility’s treatment program follows a Christian faith-based curriculum including Bible studies and the Celebrate Recovery curriculum. In order to be admitted, clients must contact the facility directly, either by phone or email, to be considered.

Most clients remain in treatment for a total of ten months, including six months in the residential facility, followed by four months of outpatient treatment, making this one of Missouri's only 28 (10.9 percent) long-term residential treatment programs.

Throughout treatment, clients receive random drug screens and breathalyzer tests. As the program progresses, clients learn budgeting skills, parenting skills, practice resume writing, and achieve their GED or work on college credits. In Missouri, 139 (54.1 percent) treatment facilities offer a form of employment training. Clients also attend church regularly, attend “Overcomers” meetings, work through the Celebrate Recovery curriculum, and participate in daily Bible studies.


There is currently no information provided by the facility regarding its treatment staff. The facility’s website does note that the founder previously struggled with addiction himself before starting the Shepherd’s Fold.

    They are faith based, teach the addict how to live, work, save money, and be responsible. You will never have felt so much love as you do there. It's not a spa like experience. Just because you or your loved one does not want a "faith based" experience don't count them out. It's working for many people who didn't think it would. My addict has over 3 years clean after being in 13 previous facilities.
