Our Mission

THE BETHEL HOUSE IS A FAITH-BASED ADULT ADDICTION RECOVERY PROGRAM FOR WOMEN.  OUR MISSION IS TO PROVIDE A COMPREHENSIVE CHRISTIAN FAITH-BASED SOLUTION TO LIFE-CONTROLLING DRUG AND ALCOHOL ADDICTIONS.

About The Program

Bethel House Women & Children’s Center is a 12-month long outreach ministry of New Creation Foundation Inc. (NCF), a recognized 501(c)3. NCRC is registered with the State of Texas as an exempt faith-based chemical dependency treatment program, Exemption Number FB3305.

For several years, the evidence has become more and more apparent, that there is a lack of residential facilities for young mothers, who are struggling with life-controlling issues, which can allow them to receive help and be able to keep their children with them.  The Bethel House Women & Children’s Center will allow us to help the entire family!

Dad can enroll in our Men’s program while Mom and child are being helped in our Women and Children’s program, because in so many instances, both parents are caught up in a destructive lifestyle.

This allows us to fulfill our mission of bringing Christ-centered restoration and healing to individuals and families  that have been

destroyed by chronic life-controlling issues or addictions such as: Behavior: anger, anxiety, depression, pornography, gambling; Substance: prescription medications, illicit drugs, alcohol, food; Relationshipsco-dependentunhealthy or enmeshed, while empowering them to become productive members of society.

It is the belief of this organization that learning is a cumulative experience, and this faith-based program can facilitate the cognitive development of the participants (students) through the framework of in-depth religious education, counseling and mentoring.

While it is hoped to attain a desired behavior, the ultimate goal of NCRC is to lead the student to a relationship with Christ, as this has been found in the faith-based community to be the determining factor in restoring someone to being a long-term and productive member of society.

Things to Know

MEDICAL – The completed Health Screening Form is required before you can enter the New Creation Restoration program. If you are unable to pay for your medical tests, there are many avenues to have these done at little or no cost. A Help Card is available from each campus to assist you with finding clinics in the surrounding area.

NON-REFUNDABLE INDUCTION FEE – The $1,250 induction fee will need to be discussed before program entry. While this fee does not pay for your entire stay at New Creation Restoration Center, it is necessary to help defray the initial costs during your first few weeks here. After the initial induction fee there will be a $300 per month program fee for the duration of the program. All fees are non-refundable.

RESIDENCY AVAILABILITY – Open beds are made available to new students on a first-come / first-served basis. If we are full, you may be placed on the waiting list. You must demonstrate a firm desire to come by having your Health Screening done and sent to our office, as well as by completing an interview.

PRACTICAL ADVICE
If you are struggling with chronic substance abuse, or any other life-controlling problem, remove yourself from that environment. Easier said than done, right? But, if you are really serious about changing your life, you are going to need to do everything you can to stay away from alcohol and drugs, and away from the people that use them. That temptation is always going to be there, but for now you need to get as far away from it as possible until you build your faith to resist it. You are also going to need to find other people who are willing to help you and support you in your decision to change your life. Have you burned a lot of bridges getting to where you are today? God can restore those relationships, but it’s not going to happen overnight. Find the courage to tell others about your decision, and you will find someone that agrees and wants to help you. Five Things You Can Do Today

PRAY. Don’t ever underestimate the power of prayer. When you pray, you are establishing a relationship with God that will endure through the good days and the bad days.

READ THE BIBLE. The Bible is God’s Word that has been given to us all. Its contents are simple and deeper than you could ever imagine, and will help you in times of struggle. Reading the Bible gives you new insight on this world and the problems we all face.

SEEK FELLOWSHIP. Spending time with other Christians is an important part of the growing process in general, and is a great way to get some advice on the personal things you have going on in your life right now.

WRITE DOWN YOUR PLAN. You need to map out your game plan on paper. If you are really going to change your life, you must have a plan! These plans may change, but you need to have a plan to follow when you hit a weak point.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are life-controlling issues?
A life-controlling issue is anything that master’s our lives. Life-controlling issues fall into three categories:

  1. Behavior: Gambling, pornography, outbursts of anger, cutting, etc.
  2. Substance: prescription medications, drugs, alcohol, food.
  3. Relationships:  Co-dependent, unhealthy or enmeshed relationships.
Is New Creation's Men's Center a medical program?
NRCF believes in the faith model and concentrates on focusing attention on God and His will for those that enter the program.  While NRCF recognizes the need for expertise in some areas, NCRC does not subscribe to the medical model of helping an individual involved in drug abuse.
Why is this program effective?
You might believe it is the length of the program (12-18 months) along with the religious environment that helps a person kick the habit.  We believe it is because of someone we call Jesus Christ.  When a person finds a relationship with God, they become a New Creation and everything changes.  New priorities, attitudes, reactions, plans and goals in life add up to change.  The new replaces the old lifestyle and the attitudes and behaviors underlying them.
Is this program open to people of all faiths?
The recovery program is based foundationally on a literal interpretation of the Protestant Bible.  Certainly, people of other faiths may enter the program but, as they are informed of the nature of the program, they voluntarily choose to participate.  It is not required that a participant have a conversion experience to enter or complete, but conversion is regarded as the greatest hope for breaking a life-controlling issue.
How can I get help?
Contact the campus at (903) 405-5656 and ask for the Admissions Coordinator.  They will provide you with entrance and program information.  The applicant must schedule a phone interview and speak to the Intake Coordinator personally.  It is preferred that the applicant interview in person if you live within a one hundred (100) mile radius of the campus.
Does it cost to go to this program?
We ask for a $1,250.00 non-refundable induction fee at the time of entry. While this fee does not pay for your entire stay at New Creation Restoration, it is necessary to help defray the initial costs during your first few weeks here, although no one is turned away for lack of funding.  While it costs an average of $1,500.00 per month to provide room and board and cover program costs we only ask for $300.00 per month and that can be raised through sponsorships.  The money for remaining costs are raised through individual donations, fundraising and work programs. Costs and fees are explained more fully in the application.
If a person drops out of the program, can they get their money back?
It is the policy of NCRC that no entry fee will be refunded.  This is shared at the time of admissions and will be provided in writing.
Do you have lock-down facilities?
As a general rule, NCRC is for those who voluntarily want to enter the program to receive assistance with life-controlling issues.  At this time, NCRC does not have a true lock-down facility.
Can a person get court ordered into the program?
Yes, a person may be court ordered, however, because of our faith-based nature, the court is required to give the individual a choice, (i.e., either 12 months in a correctional facility or complete the NCRC program).  It is important that such a person understand that biblical principles are fully integrated into the program at NCRC.
Will my family members be able to visit me while I am in the program?
NCRC has a visitation policy that will be covered at the time of the pre-intake interview.  Generally, only immediate family members or a minister is allowed contact with the participant.  Contact between the participant and other individuals will be severely restricted for the same reasons as other programs of similar nature.  If you would like to tour the NCRC campus, we would be happy to accommodate you.  Please call beforehand so that we will have someone available to provide a tour.
