The men’s program is designed to provide a safe place with all the tools to help a student succeed in their recovery. For example:
We separate persons from elements that have influenced a life of addiction.
Students learn to overcome difficulties in relationships.
Students learn to create boundaries.
They experience consistent growth, mentally, physically and spiritually.
Faith Farm provides a minimum, 9 month, residential program with all needs of the students met. The “free” aspect removes the financial hardship often experienced when making a commitment to recovery. A student is cocooned in a safe, loving environment with a staff that has a “Heart for the Hurting”.. Many of the staff are graduates of from the Faith Farm program. They understand what the students are going through. They have been there and they are motivated to bring the students into the same victorious success that they enjoy. For many, this is the first time in years that they have had an “alarm clock” start of the day with a full breakfast. Then, after a short chapel service, they attend daily classes about causes of addiction, setting healthy boundaries, respect for authority, anger management and personal integrity. Each student participates in our Comprehensive Work Training (CWT) program. This allows a student to learn skills that will make them competitive in the job market. It also establishes healthy work ethics, teaches conflict resolution and creates strong teamwork.
Lunch is at noon. Dinner is served at 5:00 p.m. Evenings are time for GED, College or CWT classes, reading, recreation or counseling. Staff members live on campus, so no student is without help or guidance at anytime. Students receive help with résumé preparation, complete employment applications, coached for interviews and job searches.
Upon completion of the program, students are celebrated and given the opportunity to share their story at a graduation ceremony. Some return home to their families as better husbands, fathers, sons and community members. Some choose to stay for advanced studies in the Advanced Programs as an Advanced Student (AS1 and AS2).
