Students battling addiction are invited to attend Hebron Colony free of charge for up to ten weeks, during which time they will be provided food, shelter, addiction counseling, scripture-based education, and more.

  • Bible Studies
  • Individual Counseling
  • Chapel Services


  • 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.
  • Residential Treatment

    Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.

Rehabs 360 Guide


Hebron Colony Ministries is a charitable, non-profit interdenominational facility located in Boone, N.C., in the Blue Ridge Mountains, offering Christian-based residential substance misuse treatment for men. According to a 2018 SAMHSA survey, 43.1 percent of facilities in North Carolina offer treatment tailored for the adult men. Medical detox is not available on-site; clients must be fully detoxed prior to admission and physically capable of performing daily tasks. The organization also operates a facility for women – Grace Home – in Vance, S.C.


Rather than viewing addiction as a disease, the organization considers chemical dependency a symptom of deeper problems, including shame, guilt, and sinful lifestyles. Although a Christian-based treatment program, the facility states that it accepts those of other faiths and non-religious individuals. The facility's website states: “Hebron is not interested in giving people more religion; instead, we teach people how to walk in a personal relationship with Christ and begin to learn how to apply God's principles in their everyday lives."

The program is based on scriptural principles set forth in the Bible. Primary treatment activities include Bible study, small group discussions, and individual counseling with pastors and staff. In addition to its faith-based programming, clients may also complete chores on the facility's grounds, participate in work-therapy through the facility's thrift store, and participate in recreational activities.

In addition, residents enjoy free time for meditation and reflection. The residential program lasts for 10 weeks, making this one of 71 (13.8 percent) facilities in North Carolina to offer long-term (30+ days) residential treatment.


The treatment team, which has no medical professionals, primarily consists of pastors and ministers. The lone individual surveyed by Rehabs.com to date on the staff's experience and training rated it five out of five stars.


The residence has 39 beds, more than the average number of designated beds (29) at residential facilities in North Carolina. Modeled after a mountain retreat, the facility has an on-site chapel and a large porch. Smoking is permitted in designated areas, though cell phones are not allowed.


Both alumni surveyed by Rehabs.com to date gave positive reviews. "I want to thank you for showing me how much I need Jesus in my life," wrote alum C. "Hebron colony showed me how to get my life back in order," wrote J., the other alum.

On secondary sites, Hebron Colony Ministries received highly positive feedback to date. On Google, 16 reviewers contributed to an average rating of 4.8 out of five stars.[1] All 71 reviewers on Facebook gave five-star reviews.[2] Note: reviews on both sites covered the male and female campuses, and the facility may manage Facebook reviews.

Many reviewers referenced the dual benefits of freedom from addiction and renewed faith.“Hebron colony is a God send, it is a place for men struggling with addiction and it really works! It saved my life and restored my faith, family and will to live!!!!” Gary, a representative reviewer, wrote on Google.


The sole loved one surveyed by Rehabs.com to date gave a mostly positive review. The reviewer, A.O., gave five out of five stars to the facility's exercise and leisure options, cleanliness, affordability, treatment for co-occurring disorders, faith-based treatment, and experience of the staff. A.O. did, however, give only three stars to counseling options and holistic offerings and two stars to connectivity and family participation.


Hebron Colony Ministries is free of charge except for a small nonrefundable medical deposit. The facility is supported by charitable donations, fundraising efforts, and the revenue raised through the facility's thrift stores.
