Frequently Asked Questions
New Heart Place
1. How much does New Heart Place cost?
In an effort to make New Heart Place Men’s and Women’s programs accessible to those desperate for healing and freedom, the fees for the program are affordable and all-inclusive:
- ^$1500 One-Time Induction Fee: Includes a personalized program binder, curriculum, background check fees, urinary analysis fees, and ancillary fees associated with personal hygiene needs, bedding, towels, etc.
- ^$600 a Month Program Fee: Includes board and room, special activities fees (retreats, conferences), transportation, and other special needs.
No sincere applicant desperately seeking healing and freedom will be turned away because of an inability to pay the fees. A Deferred Payment program is available for those applicants unable to pay the fees.
2. How do I apply?
Step Two | Complete and Submit Your Application
Once your application has been received at our office, our New Heart Place Administrator will call you and set-up an interview with the Executive Director and appropriate Resident Director (Men’s Home or Women’s Home).
Step Three | Interview
The Executive and Resident Directors will process with you your motivation for selecting New Heart Place, your readiness to complete the twelve-eighteen months of the program, your ability to pay the required fees, and any questions you may have regarding life at New Heart Place. You will be presented with a Medical Screens card listing the required exams requisite for your intake.
Step Four | Prayer
The Executive and Resident Directors will pray over the application and interview. Should they receive confirmation from the Holy Spirit that New Heart Place will effectively meet your needs, they will send you a formal acceptance letter in which the intake date will be set.
3. Can I work when I am in the program?
Students are not released to pursue employment until Phase Three of the program. In Phase Three, students may apply for permission to pursue part-time (up to 24 hours a week) employment with an approved employer. Students approved for employment will live at New Heart Place while working their job.
Students will be unable to keep the job they have at intake. Selected employers are willing to hold the job for the student for the duration of the New Heart Place program.
4. Do I have to spend a year at New Heart Place?
Research indicates that changing thought and lifestyle pattern while providing an opportunity for the body to totally heal from prolonged alcohol and drug abuse requires a minimum of one year.
Many applicants struggle with investing an entire year in the healing and transformational process the program requires yet have not fully processed the years they have already wasted doing their “drug of choice.” The typical addict has begun ingesting drugs and alcohol between the ages of 12 and 14.
5. Is there financing or scholarships available?
The majority of men and women applying to the New Heart Place program have “burned” all their personal monies plus all the financial resources of their friends and families. It is not uncommon for an applicant to have completed three or four treatment programs before applying at New Heart Place.
Limited scholarships are available for qualifying applicants. Please request an application from the New Heart Place Administrator (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The Deferred Payment program provides the student with the opportunity to defer payment of their fees until they have begun their part-time employment experience in Phase Three
6. Can my family interact with me while I am in the program?
Following the thirty-day “black-out” period wherein an inductee is given an opportunity to close him or herself off from all outside influences to stabilize physiologically, assimilate into the New Heart Place and Westgate Chapel communities, and get initiated into the policies and procedures of New Heart Place, each student is welcome to interact with his or her family within the following venues:
- ^Sunday worship
- ^New Heart Monday Nite
- ^Tuesday Prayer Meeting
In addition, family members are invited to come to the appropriate facility (Echo Lake Men’s Home or Maltby Women’s Home) on Sunday afternoon to spend quality time with their son, daughter, or spouse.
7. Can I detox at the facility?
Withdrawing from a particular “drug of choice” can be physiologically difficult. For some, detoxing from an opiate can be fairly easy requiring less than a week. However, detoxing from prolonged alcohol abuse is often extremely difficult requiring the attention of a qualified medical team.
New Heart Place is not a medical facility. As such, we are unable to safely welcome applicants still actively using up to their application interview. For those applicants, we will recommend a recognized Detox Facility capable of managing the applicants detox process. New Heart Place staff will pick up the applicant directly from the Detox program and transport them to New Heart Place.
One of the primary objectives of the Induction Phase is stabilization. It affords the inductee an opportunity for the detox process to be completed.
8. Do you take insurance?
No. New Heart Place is a ministry of Westgate Chapel in Edmonds, Washington. As such, we are not a state-certified program and thereby do not qualify as a receiving agency for most insurance carriers.
We do take most credit cards as payment for New Heart Place fees.
9. Do you accept children?
Regrettably, the New Heart Place Men’s or Women’s programs are not equipped to receive children at this time. Applicants with children are encouraged to seek a responsible family member willing to care for the applicant’s children throughout the twelve-eighteen months of the program.
Applicants with children in the care of a responsible family member are welcome to interact with their children on Sunday afternoon at the appropriate New Heart Place facility.

“He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.”
“He himself bore our sins in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his (Jesus) wounds you have been healed.“
