Hebron Addiction Recovery Program for Men
If you or someone you love is struggling with addiction, you may call the Hebron Addiction Recovery Intake Office at 317.636.2720 or come to 245 North Delaware St., Indianapolis, IN 46204 (9 a.m. – 4 p.m. M-F) or email HebronIntake@wmm.org.
Our Hebron Addiction Recovery Program (HAR) is a long-term, residential, addiction recovery program. HAR programming occurs across two Wheeler Mission sites: the Men’s Residential Center (MRC) located in Indianapolis, IN and Camp Hunt located in Bloomington, IN. HAR is dedicated to Christian Regeneration, Discipleship, and Fellowship and exists to serve men and their families, specializing in serving those suffering with addiction or life-dominating sins. Hebron means fellowship or community.
HAR is an intense program dedicated to the holistic recovery and biblical discipleship of men overcoming addictions and other life-dominating sins. This may include helping family members through our Family Counseling and Advocacy Service within the HAR program.
Our Hebron Addiction Recovery Program (HAR) is comprised of the following:
- Orientation (4-6 weeks): During this phase at our Men’s Residential Center, assessments are done to gauge readiness to change. Legal, medical and other areas are assessed to determine a long-term treatment plan. Men are introduced to biblical teaching. This phase helps stabilize men and prepare them to transition to the rest of the HAR program at Camp Hunt.
- Self-Confrontation (24 weeks): This phase at Camp Hunt allows a participant to work through a Self-Confrontation manual, identify his treatment plan, take ownership of his actions, and engage in seeking forgiveness and addressing his own forgiveness issues. This is all done while working beside an assigned Program Manager. At the end of his 22nd lesson in the Self-Confrontation manual, the participant will be given the option to complete the course exam certifying him in Basic Theology and Biblical Counseling.
- Servant-Leadership Training (9 months): If a man decides to stay for this internship opportunity, he must complete the Self-Confrontation course exam as a prerequisite. This internship allows a man to continue serving in the Christian community while addressing life issues, assisting Program Managers, and developing his gifts/talents. This internship is divided between the Camp Hunt and MRC locations.
- A.C.T.S. (3 months): A program designed for STEPS and Hebron program graduates. Graduates continue to receive shelter and food while in the ACTS program. The primary purpose of ACTS is to assist the graduates in three primary areas: church involvement, employment, and housing. This program help the graduates by growing their network and involving members of the church and community. The ACTS Program acts as a liaison between program graduates and society.
Hebron Addiction Recovery Program Philosophy
The Christian approach to recovery involves applying God’s truth to our lives (John 17:17). In other words, true recovery hinges on individuals applying what they are taught (Matthew 7:24-27). Most issues started well before the onset of the addiction, and abstinence from the addiction is only a small part of being free. The issue of sin and a lifestyle set in opposition to God, which is common to man, is the greater problem (Romans 3:23, 1 Corinthians 10:13). We believe that by being reconciled to God, through a relationship with Jesus Christ, people can begin the process of growth and maturity in Christ (John 3:16, Romans 6:23 and 8:29). A successful faith-based addiction recovery program is one that seeks a foundation based in truth, confirmed by scripture, discerned from within accepted best practices, and guided by God. The success rates in this case would not be measured by whether people relapse or not, but by whether they grow from their failures (James 1:2-4) and continue to put into practice what they have been taught (2 Peter 1:5-11). We also believe some recovery tools, like The 12 Core Functions and certain relapse prevention practices, are universal, truthful, and appropriate for use within our structure.
Hebron Addiction Recovery Program Purpose
Our purpose is to present the Gospel of Jesus Christ (Romans 1:16-17) and to equip men to be useful to God, family, and society (2 Timothy 3:16-17, Ephesians 2:10). Our prayers for the men involved with the Hebron Addiction Recovery program are straight forward and surround this idea: that they hear the truth, which is God’s Word, and apply it.
