HEBRON ADDICTION RECOVERY PROGRAM
Hebron is a long-term, residential, addiction recovery program that helps men address addictions and other life-dominating sin by focusing on a total life change through a relationship with Jesus Christ. This program begins at Chain Breaker House in Columbus with the Hebron Orientation Program.
For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all men, instructing us to deny ungodliness and worldly desires and to live sensibly, righteously and godly in the present age. Titus 2:11-12
Hebron begins with Hebron Orientation. During this 6-8-week program, assessments are completed to gauge readiness for change. Legal, medical and other needs are assessed for stabilization. During this time, men will learn to work, relate to others in the program, and attend biblical teaching classes. After this initial orientation program, men may enter the 6-month Hebron program at our Training Center.
HEBRON ADDICTION RECOVERY PROGRAM
Hebron is a long-term, residential opportunity for men to receive help with addictions and other life-dominating sin. This six-month program is designed to help men learn how to biblically overcome addictions and life-dominating sin. Men will be a part of a group where they will study through Self-Confrontation: A Manual for In-Depth Biblical Discipleshiptogether with support and training from their assigned Program Manager. During this time, they will attend classes with seminary-trained instructors and engage in work training with our various work crews at Wheeler Mission Pallets & Industry for a work reference after successful completion of the program. Men will also have the opportunity to fellowship with members of local churches for weekly Bible Studies. They will learn what it means to take ownership of their actions, engage in seeking forgiveness, and address their own forgiveness issues. The goal is not just to see men use this training for themselves, but to also see them use this training to learn how to help others. After 22 weeks, men may complete an optional exam and earn their Training Certificate in Basic Theology and Biblical Counseling. This would make other ministry training opportunities through Wheeler Mission available to them. For men in Hebron who are married and/or have children, we offer our family counseling services. The goal of this service is to allow each man to grow, heal, and be equipped with discipleship training alongside his wife and/or children. We believe that families need to heal together, not apart. We offer weekend housing and biblical counseling for men enrolled in this service. After completion of Hebron, graduates may return home, join our Connect program, or enroll in our Equip program.

Equip is specialized for graduates of our programs who decide to receive additional training by serving within our mission. Men who have received their Training Certificate in Basic Theology and Biblical Counseling may apply to enter our nine-month Equip program for Hebron graduates. This advanced course of ministry training offers men an intensive look at serving others as a way of leadership while engaging in four college level Systematic Theology courses and two practical application courses in Biblical Counseling and Servant Leadership. They will be mentored by a Program Manager while continuing to address their personal life issues. Men will assist program management staff with leading other men in Hebron while developing their own gifts and talents. They will also be given training to prepare them for Biblical Counseling Certification with the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors. Equip may be taken at either the Hunt Training Center, Indianapolis, or Bloomington campuses. Upon successful completion of Equip, men will have earned their Training Certificate in Advanced Theology and Biblical Counseling. This certificate allows them to receive potential college scholarships and college credits with our University collaborations, along with other ministry training opportunities.
