Choosing A Program

Programs in the pacific northwest

The Pacific Northwest is home to a variety of inpatient, residential programs for those seeking freedom from the controls of addiction. The following programs are presented in no particular order or preference. Some of the programs presented are parachurch ministries, meaning they are not connected to any particular local church. Others are local church based, meaning they rely heavily upon the ministries of that local church to enrich the experience a student will receive in their program.

The following is not a comprehensive list, but only a sampling of programs available in the Pacific Northwest.

Steps to selecting a program

Step One

Make the decision. Are you willing to commit to a long-term residential program?

Step Two

Gather the information from the residential programs available in the Pacific Northwest.  Read through the websites carefully.  Ask two or three people in your life to look at the websites with you.  Call and visit with the program leadership.

Step Three

Consider the program fees.  Do you have the ability to pay the fees?  Does the program offer financial assistance?

Step Four

Request an application from the program you selected. 

Why Choose New Heart Place

A Brother or Sister, Not a Client

The Westgate Chapel Community of Faith is committed to consistently and fervently call on the Lord for the population of the broken and hurting.  As a result, every man or woman that applies to the New Heart Place Men’s or Women’s Home is viewed as a son or daughter the Father has entrusted to us in answer to our prayer.

Our applicants are not welcomed into a program as clients, but rather into a family as new brothers and sisters. 


From the moment an applicant is accepted into the program, the professional staff seeks to understand everything they can about that student that will enable them to effectively disciple that student.  Each student has an opportunity to share with the staff their personality type, giftings, learning style and family of origin issues that distinguish them from the other students. 

Each student is prayerfully assigned a personal coach from the congregation who is trained to serve that student as his | her primary intercessor, encourager, teacher, confidante, and curriculum guide.

Should a student desire to complete requirements for a high school diploma or its GED equivalent, a personal tutor will be assigned to walk the student through the process. 

When the student is ready to graduate, the staff will prayerfully partner with the student to ascertain God’s “highest and best” for the “next step” in their lives. 

Community of faith

When admitted to the program the New Heart Place students become an integral part of the Westgate Chapel Community of Faith, participating fully in Sunday services, Tuesday evening corporate prayer, and other special events and conferences.

As part of their vocational readiness track, the Men’s Home students serve every Thursday in the Westgate Chapel Food and Clothing Banks.  

Westgate Chapel Community of Faith fully embraces the New Heart Place students welcoming them into their hearts and often their homes.

Affordable and Accessible

The $1500 induction fee and the $600 a month program fees are very affordable by industry standards. Though the fees do not meet the expenses of the ministries of the Men’s or Women’s Homes, the leadership is committed to making the program accessible to those who need what it offers.  

Financial aid is available for those unable to pay the fees. 


The New Heart Place leadership believes that student the Father entrusts to them is marked with destiny discoverable through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.  As graduation approaches, the New Heart Place leadership encourages the student to not simply get a job, but prayerfully discern the Father’s highest and best: His destiny for their lives.
