Bethel Colony of Mercy

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 Lenoir, 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. Please read About Bethel Colony under Who We Are for more information.

In 1988, Bethel transformed an attic space into two men bays so that we could get more men into our ministry quicker. That space became known as "The Loft". The Loft is where new students were housed when they first arrived at Bethel. As is true with most attics, it could be very hot up there. All those men who have come through this process know what we're talking about. Well, The Loft is undergoing a full remodel! And, though we know many of you will be sad to hear this, it will no longer be used as housing for the new men on "the hill". Enjoy this video showing what's happening currently in "The Loft". Check back often to see the final results of the transformation. ... See MoreSee Less
