Faith Home Of Abbeville

309 Washington Street PO Box 188, Abbeville, South Carolina, 29620
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.

Facility Highlights

  • Spiritual Healing
  • Choir
  • Ping-Pong

Specialization

  • 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.
  • 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.

ABOUT FAITH HOME, INC. - ABBEVILLE WOMEN’S FACILITY

Since 1966, Faith Home, Inc. has provided residential Christian addiction recovery programming rooted in the belief that “solutions to drug and alcohol abuse can be found through faith in God along with the 12-step programs of Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous and Al-Anon.”

Today, the nonprofit runs three residential facilities, of which one, in Abbeville, S.C., is dedicated solely to treating women. Medical detox services are not available here. Within the state, Faith Home is among 10 substance abuse treatment facilities that provide 30-day plus long-term, residential non-hospital care.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Per the nonprofit’s admissions page, there generally is a waiting list period of five to six weeks for women seeking to enter treatment at the Abbeville facility. Clients must be alcohol free for 72 hours and free of drugs for seven days, as well as pass a drug screen and breathalyzer test to be admitted.

The residential program typically requires a commitment of eight weeks. Treatment involves Bible study, early morning devotions, 12-step meetings, and regular church services. All residents also adhere to a daily work program, referred to as “physical therapy,” which includes yard work, kitchen work, house cleaning, and facility and grounds maintenance.

Recreational and social activities include basketball, hiking, fishing, fitness, ping-pong, foosball, choir, and acts of community service, such as volunteering at the local food bank and nursing homes. At designated days and times, the facility invites families to join their loved ones in treatment.

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

The sole loved one polled by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing gave Faith Home - Abbeville Women’s Facility a largely positive review, reflected in ratings awarded to the major categories of the survey: top five stars for both treatment effectiveness and meals and nutrition, as well as four out of five stars for accommodations and amenities.

For a number of other metrics, Carol carried through the four-star pattern, including connectivity/visitor policy, counseling options, likelihood to recommend, and staff experience and training. However, this reviewer offered lower ratings of two stars for family participation and holistic offerings, and one star for affordability and facility cleanliness and upkeep. Carol shared with Rehabs.com: “Some staff are recovering addicts which gives them a clear understanding of what an addict is actually experiencing… Great place to learn and overcome addiction.”
