Looking for a free (except for a minimal entry fee) drug and alcohol rehab with a faith-based approach using the Bible and Christian principles in counseling? Then, Bethel Colony of Mercy, located in North Carolina, is the place for you. With only an entry fee of $250.00, Bethel Colony is a 65-day residential program that teaches victory over sin through Jesus Christ and the Bible. This is done through classroom teaching, audio tapes, counseling both at the Colony and online, homework, worship services and work projects. Our program is designed to provide a vital context in which men are encouraged to know Christ personally and to understand the practical outworking of the Word of God in meeting every need. Daily teaching, counseling, devotionals, guided personal Bible study and prayer provide the means by which these objectives are accomplished. This, combined with a disciplined schedule, healthful climate, nutritious food and relaxing recreation, soon restores a measure of physical health and a more positive mental outlook. The residents also participate in routine maintenance of the facilities, general upkeep of the grounds and community projects. Bethel Colony’s program is primarily designed to produce in each man a more effective lifestyle in which he allows Jesus Christ to take control.
