Helping Hurting People Heal In Christ

Bethel Colony South and Women at the Well are intensive, long-term (6-month minimum), residential substance abuse treatment programs. Both programs employ a faith-based approach to recovery. Through an intensive educational / spiritual regimen, which combines traditional church services, classroom teaching, guided individual study, one-on-one counseling, work therapy and volunteer community service projects, the programs facilitate complete and lasting recovery from drug and alcohol abuse by teaching the student to (1) develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ; (2) lead a Christ-centered lifestyle; and (3) faithfully apply biblical principles and strategies to overcome life’s daily obstacles.

Each of these programs provides a racially, ethnically and culturally diverse therapeutic community that is well-suited for men and women who are serious about recovery. Our students live in a highly-structured and highly-supervised, drug- and alcohol-free environment. Their daily routine has been carefully designed to promote maximum personal responsibility and accountability. This unique community environment also nurtures peer support by providing an avenue for recovering addicts and alcoholics to share emotional, social and practical help with each other.

For the duration of their (6-month+) residency, students of both programs are provided the following services and/or amenities at absolutely no cost:

• Daily Bible-based instruction and counseling (group and individual)
• Bibles, educational resources and study aids
• Dormitory-style housing (furniture and utilities included)
• Three (3) hot, nutritionally-balanced meals daily, seven (7) days a week
• Bed linens, pillows and bath towels (as needed)
• On-site laundry service
• Nationwide telephone service
• Transportation (as needed)
• Medical screening
• First aid
• Assorted recreational activities

Upon graduation from the program, students are encouraged to “stay connected” with the Bethel family. Most of our graduates continue to attend Bethel Community Baptist Church each week for Sunday morning service. In addition, many of our graduates “give back” to the programs by volunteering as instructors, counselors, or in other staff positions. 100% of our staff members are former students who successfully completed the program.
