Hebron Colony - Grace Home

501 Ltd Rd., Vance, South Carolina, 29163
In the solitude and beauty of the low county of South Carolina, Grace Home offers a faith-based approach to recovery, teaching women how to overcome addiction through Christianity. This facility’s goal is to leave women with an understanding of Christ’s plan of salvation, and equip them with the tools to apply it to daily life.

Facility Highlights

  • Bible Studies
  • One-on-One Counseling
  • Chapel Services


  • 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.
  • 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.

Rehabs 360 Guide


Located in the small, rural town of Vance, S.C., Grace Home offers Christian faith-based, residential treatment for women struggling with substance abuse. The center is one of two facilities owned by Hebron Colony, a recovery ministry in operation since 1947. (A separate facility located in Boone, N.C., serves men struggling with chemical dependency.) Medically-assisted detox is not offered on-site, and neither facility employs any medical or psychiatric professionals.


To be eligible for admission, clients must have already completed the detox process and be physically capable of performing daily chores. Applicants must then mail their admissions paperwork to the facility and submit blood test results for AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Hepatitis C (clients with Hepatitis C may still be accepted).

Once paperwork and testing is complete, clients are expected to “check in” with weekly phone calls to the facility to prove that they are serious are about recovery. According to the center’s website, “These calls are also the fastest way to move up in the waiting list.”

Clients enrolled in Grace Home’s recovery program remain on-site for 10 weeks. The center’s approach to treatment is based on the belief that addiction is a manifestation of sin, and that recovery is dependent upon the client's ability to engage with Christian values. To obtain and cultivate these values, clients engage in religious services, "thought-provoking" Bible study, one-on-one counseling with pastoral staff, and complete various written assignments.

In addition, residents perform chores on the grounds and may participate in work-therapy tasks that help offset the cost of treatment. Along with core programming, residents also participate in therapeutic recreation and leisure activities.


Grace Home’s staff consists of pastors and administrative personnel. To date, the one alum polled on the matters by Rehabs.com gave perfect five-star ratings for the amount of staff support and their amount of training.


Set on 40 acres of woodland, the facility houses up to 16 clients in dormitory-style accommodations. In addition to a basic housing facility, the women’s campus includes a chapel, a gazebo, and a lakeside garden. After an initial two-week wait, clients may make calls to loved ones outside the facility and receive visitors; pastors are welcome anytime. Smoking is allowed in designated areas.


Two alumni polled by Rehabs.com to date both wrote that they relapsed shortly after completing the program. Alum Tibby, however, still rated the facility a perfect five stars in several metrics including exercise and leisure options, cleanliness, the respect shown to clients, and effectiveness of individual counseling. She wrote: "Those 10 weeks were intense and invaluable. It changed my life. This was not a 12 step program, rather spiritual."

The 20 individuals who submitted reviews to Grace Home’s unofficial Facebook page provided a rating of 4.8 out of five stars.[1] Most of the reviewers who provided commentary with their ratings praised the center’s supportive environment and faith-based programming. “Oh how I long to be back for the sisterhood and companionship yet with all I learned and all the tools I was given from the AWESOME staff and volunteers,” Cherie wrote in a representative review.

On Google, one alum rated the facility a perfect five stars, praising its Christian foundation in commentary.[2]


Gary, the one family member surveyed by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing, rated Grace Home’s treatment effectiveness five out of five stars and noted that he was pleased with “all aspects of the program.” “We highly recommend this center and its staff for you or your loved one who is dedicated and determined to work hard at breaking the addiction cycle by utilizing gods word as the programs fundamental source,” he wrote.


With the exception of a $300 refundable medical deposit, Grace Home’s program is offered free of charge. According to the center’s website, most clients can expect up to a 10-week wait for admission.
