Dedicated to restoring broken lives
Betel offers a free residential program for those struggling with substance addiction and homelessness
How can Betel help me or someone I love to break free from addiction?
Like respected Christian communities of the past, Betel residents gradually work through problems in an environment based on two simple and time honored principles: peer support, where residents help one another in a family-like atmosphere, and meaningful work, which helps to build job skills, diligence and dependability.
Drug/Alcohol free and free of charge
Residents help to fund their own recovery working in one of our charitable businesses. This removes the financial burden from their families and the government while restoring self-dignity and a sense of purpose.
Our method is to model freedom
Residents soon discover that Betel is not a goal oriented rehab program, but rather a commitment to daily choice - to aspire to the values and pursuits of a healthier lifestyle as modeled by mature Christians. In the "advance at your own pace environment", residents learn character building principles. They live them out at home and at work, building strong foundations for a stable future.
Today Betel is in more than 100 cities in 20 nations
Radical Financial Principles
Betel believes firmly that entrance should be accessible to everyone, regardless of financial means. We charge no fees. Instead we aim to be as self-supporting as possible, funding daily operations through our charitable businesses and workshops. We gratefully receive donations of food, furniture, goods, vehicles etc.
