Like all trouble souls who had reached a low period in their lives; I went to Faith Farm in Ft. Lauderdale for help and guidance in kicking my addictions to drugs and alcohol. It is a residential program where everyone works, goes to classes, and lots of Church with much spiritual propaganda mixed in for good measure. As soon as it was found out that I had a valid drivers licence, they put me to work driving a truck with a helper that they call the navigator. We would work all day picking up furniture, bria a brac, and general used stuff to sell at used product stores. We would do this 6 days a week for a grand total paycheck of $18.00 dollars a week when divided by 6 equals 3 dollars a day for 9 hours work. Not bad when you consider that everything they sell ends up being pure profit. Enough on the cheap labor exploitations of this church. I am Catholic and they didn't like that from the beginning. The supposed teachers were nothing more than a bunch of hypocritical selfpoised religious know it alls that preached their own false doctrines about the bible. Mind you, ""about the bible"" not ""from the bible"". I went through this program up until I was going to be in Alpha House. This is the last leg of your journey at Faith Farm. I was told by one of the Instructors, Brother Gary that if I didn't renounce Catholicism, and get baptized in their church, that I would burn in Hell for an eternity. That was the final straw for myself. I left the program and have been doing well ever since. Sometimes change is good, any change at that. I will aggree on that. But never addressing the core of your substance abuse problems and always saying ""it's the Devil"" or blaming it on the Devil is downright ludicrous. If you want to put your problems on hold for a bit and let them simmer, go to Faith Farm. If you really want to help yourself, get into a church that preaches the true gospel and doesn't deviate from Gods true word. Have fellowship with good people, and most definitely don't have anything to do with your old drinking and drugging buddies. Amen, DB

I am a alpha graduate (1992) papie was still alive then I know several board members you can bet thay do not know what is going on there now. I got a lot out of the program I have bin calling lately with some questions I got no help short answers all they wanted to know was had I bin in touch with any of the bored members well i will be now going down there in december . I will let youall know what I find out. Remember GOD loves you!
My experience with Faith Farm has always been pleasant. Not only do they have quite a selection of clothing, nic nacs, pots & pans, books, & electronics upstairs, but they also have a huge selection of furniture. The newer stuff (or new stuff) is on the first floor. But, if you walk across that little driveway to the other side you can find fantastic deals on furniture. I bought a full bedroom set from there and INCLUDING DELIVERY CHARGES it cost me LESS than $300.00!
The gentlemen that assisted me from the cashier, to the delivery supervisor, to the men who delivered the furniture, were as nice and friendly as they could be. They taped up the furniture carefully and moved it like it belonged to their own family. They were right on time, and friendly.
I'm going back this weekend to look for my living room furniture!!
What an awesome ministry. I shop upstairs in the clothing section just for fun sometimes. Plus, they sell hotdogs and cold pop right outside the door. I think a hotdog is a buck!

THIS PALCE IS FULL OF HYPOCRITE DIRECTORS THEY STEAL FROM THE THINGS THAT ARE SUPPOSED TO BE SOLD TO HELP THE MINISTRY THEY ARE ONLY LOOKING OUT FOR THEMSELVES. AND THEY DONT TEACH THE BIBLE VERY WELL BECAUSE THEY ARE NOTHING BUT EX DRUGIES. ALL THEY WANT IS FREE LABOR

From the inside out, let me just say that this place takes in drug/alcohol abusers and puts them to work driving trucks, picking up donations, minding the store, etc etc. The facilities are run down and they give the ""inmates"" 7 dollars a week which begs the question, where does the money go? Also, there is little if any thought towards true rehabilitation, i.e. job placement, battling temptations. It is all Christian centered and even that is very skewed towards fanatical right-wing propoganda. It's nothing short of a Christian jail that preys on people with serious substance abuse problems. The success rate of those that leave is dismal at best.

I was at faith farm over 10 years ago. I needed help and they gave it to me. When you're own life isn't working because you just can't manage yourself due to addiction, you need a new way to live. This is what faith farm offers. They offer spiritual food. Anyone who goes to faith farm should never complain about it because their own life was a mess to get them there in the first place. I never finished the program. I was about 28 years old, and my life showed it. I was able to get a college degree after I left and start a successful business; but all the money I was making enabled my addition and continued my suffering for many years. I wish this on no one. I'm returning to faith farm and completing the program now at age 41 because it's not about experiencing pain any longer, it's about saving my life. I am going to die prematurely if I don't...
The good news is that I'm still alive and able to go back and complete the program. I have great potential and have taken my LSAT for law school and hope to enter in Sept. 08. I want to specialize in criminal justice and work with young offenders. I want to try and help them change their ways. To see a different path in their lives besides helping them with their immediate legal needs. I was there and I know. My addiction has lasted for over 26 years and I have suffered...I'm tired and broken.

Wow what a place. It's free of charge and you can stay there for around 8 months, in south Florida! There's around 300 people there and so I don't think one employee leaving is gonna make that much of a difference. I had a real problem, and I just wasn't gonna make the changes on my own. With all the support from everyone and the amount of time they gave me, I got control of my addiction and I'm standing on my own two feet now. Thank You Jesus!
