  • Fishing


  • 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.

Rehabs 360 Guide


Founded in 1966, Faith Home Inc. is a Christian nonprofit organization operating three rehabilitation and recovery centers in South Carolina. Faith-based treatment programs for drug and alcohol addiction are residential and rooted in 12-Step and Christian principles. The facility in Cowpens, located ten miles from the city of Spartanburg, provides treatment for men. The other two facilities are located in Greensville and Abbeville.

According to a 2016 SAMHSA survey, privately run, nonprofit organizations comprise 33.3 percent of treatment facilities in South Carolina.


According to the organization's website, there is generally a waiting list period of three to four weeks for men seeking to enter treatment at the Cowpens facility. Residential treatment typically lasts eights weeks.

Programming includes Bible study, early morning devotions, 12-step meetings, and regular church services. All residents also adhere to a daily work program, which the facility refers to as “Physical Therapy,” entailing yard work, kitchen work, house cleaning, and facility and grounds maintenance.

In addition, residents participate in community volunteer activities such as serving at the food bank, choir services to local nursing homes, supporting churches, and volunteering at numerous United Way agencies/functions.

At designated times, the facility also invites families to join their loved ones in treatment for educational classes.


Though there is currently no information provided by the facility regarding treatment staff, the single individual polled by Rehabs.com to date gave three out of five stars for the staff’s level of training and experience. The anonymous reviewer, however, described the staff as "unqualified" in commentary provided to Rehabs.com. According to the organization's website, Faith Home is not a medical facility.


The organization's website notes the men’s treatment facility is based in the historic Bertha Smith house, which features a chapel, ample outdoor space, as well as devotional areas encircled by worship crosses for group meetings. The treatment center also offers a range of recreational and social activities, such as basketball, hiking, fishing, fitness, ping-pong, foosball, and choir participation.


Though Rehabs.com has not yet received any feedback from alumni as of this date, on the facility's unofficial Facebook page, 14 alumni all gave Faith Home Inc. perfect ratings of five out of five stars. Commentary tended to emphasize the effectiveness of treatment and praised the faith-based nature of the program. "Sending out a huge THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart to Faith Home," wrote alum Israel in a representative review. "Words cant express the gratitude i have for this place changing my life."


The sole loved one polled by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing gave a mixed review. Though they gave high marks (four or five stars) for the facility's cleanliness, affordability, and exercise and leisure options, the anonymous reviewer gave neutral or negative ratings to most other categories evaluated, including family participation, connectivity, and counseling options.

Additionally, they rated family participation only two out of five stars. "There is very little interaction with the patient during the program," they wrote. They also noted that there is "no treatment for patients with mental disorders, facilities does not allow basic medication."

"I do not believe that faith alone is a substitute for medications but I will state this program worked for my loved one," they wrote when assessing the program's overall effectiveness and cited the "Strong faith based treatment" as its strength.


According to the facility's website, Faith Home Inc. operates six thrift stores throughout South Carolina’s Greenwood and Spartanburg counties. Proceeds are allocated to provide treatment free of cost.
