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.

The Bethel Colony of Mercy is a place that "fishes" for the hearts, souls and minds of addicted men who long to be free from their addictions. It's a painful path they are on filled with much sadness, fear and dangers. People around them greatly suffer too--especially those who love the broken hearted ones. The faithful staff on "The Hill" encourage men from every place in life and geographic location to find the power emanating from a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. This tribe of the beautifully broken is led by Pastor Paul Pruitt who himself comes from a family of commercial fishermen on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. So this week he was honing his craft again. Soon he'll be back in Lenoir, NC leading the team in the day-by-day fight for the lives of vulnerable men. Jesus loved the water, those who fished and the chance to offer the good news of the gospel during his itinerant years on the shores of the Sea of Galilee. We follow in His footsteps knowing the grace, mercy and forgiveness of God's plan for an abundant life is there on a hook baited and waiting. All we have to do is say..."Yes Lord." ...
