Our Vision: Restoring Families

Ruth House Ministries is a Christ-centered, long term, residential recovery program for women addicted to or abusing drugs or alcohol. Our program provides a platform for the regeneration of substance abusers and their families who meet the entrance criteria. Organized in 2008 to combat the ravages of drugs and alcohol in North Georgia, the Ruth House is blessed to have seen tremendous changes in the lives of women and their families.

Ruth House Ministriies is a non-denominational, non-profit, tax exempt, 501 (c)(3) corporation.

Our Program

The Ruth House Program is composed of five phases designed to be completed in a one year residency at the Ruth House campus in Ranger, GA. It is a Christ-centered program with full days of life skills classes, campus chores, recovery assignments, community service, mentoring, and employment in the later phases.

The program is voluntary and THOR approved and will accept mandated candidates.





What is Addiction Regeneration? It is being made new again.

"Therefore if any person is in Christ, they are a new creation: old things have passed away; behold all things have become new."       2 Corinthians 5:17. 

This spiritual transformation is different from rehabilitation which means to revert back to the former state in which one was before addiction. The former state is the reason most people turned toward addiction in the first place.



How We Are Funded

Ruth House Ministries requires monthly tuition in advance from each participant. Ruth House Ministries also seeks funds from grants, religious organizations, and donations from the community. These contributions may reduce the tuition requirement of participants.  Limited scholarships and sliding scale tuition opportunities are available.
