Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Fellowship Hall is a 99-bed private, not-for-profit 501(c)(3) facility treating adult men and women. The original program has expanded to serve those suffering from drug addiction, utilizing the Narcotics Anonymous principles and steps. The Board of Directors, through careful management of resources and prudent long-range planning, has kept the fee for services significantly lower than that of comparable facilities. Fellowship Hall is a mission-driven and value-oriented organization that is considered by professionals in the field of addiction as “the grandfather of treatment” in this area of the country. Fellowship Hall has earned the reputation of being a center of teaching excellence. There are many things unique about Fellowship Hall, and we are different for a reason – to afford our guests the best possible care with the tools to live a life in long-term recovery.

Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Primary Residental Program

Our Primary program includes therapeutic assessment, individualized treatment plan development, individual counseling, group therapy, a grief group for those who have experienced significant losses, psych-educational lectures, and recovery skill building. There is also recreational therapy consisting of an activities program and yoga classes. The average guest spends 3-6 weeks in residential treatment based on individual needs determined by the treatment team. The goal of residential treatment is to allow individuals, whose lives have been disrupted by alcohol or drug use, to physically and emotionally stabilize so they can begin to learn important skills for recovery.

Population(s) Served
Adults

Our program is built upon a solid foundation of 12-step recovery and structured therapeutic treatment. Treatment includes psycho-educational lectures, meditation, psycho-drama (a form of active role-playing ), EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing), emotional externalization work taken from the work of Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, yoga three times a week, as well as daily group therapy and ongoing individual therapy. The modalities of treatment utilized in extended treatment are recognized as effective in addressing trauma-related symptoms. Continued monitoring by a psychiatrist is also available when indicated.

Population(s) Served
Adults

Fellowship Hall has several options for transitional housing on its campus. We have three short stay half way houses that are staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by Fellowship Hall staff. We also offer one longer stay recovery residence. We have two residences for men and one for women. Our half way houses are open to guests of Fellowship Hall once they have completed our primary program. They are also open to patients referred from other treatment programs when they have completed a primary course of treatment. While at the halfway houses, guests are required to participate in our intensive outpatient treatment programs. The men attend the evening intensive outpatient program and the women attend the day program.

Population(s) Served
Adults

At Fellowship Hall, Intensive Outpatient Treatment (IOP) is an abstinence-based program, open to adults 18 and older who are struggling with alcohol and drug use and are experiencing impairment in their daily functioning. IOP is designed for those who need a structured program to address their abuse/addiction issues while allowing them to continue to live and work in their own communities.

Population(s) Served
Adults

The 4-Day Family Program helps to explore, address, and deal with concerns by utilizing a 4-day intensive week of therapeutic and educational sessions. Through education and support to restore self-respect, trust, and hope, Fellowship Hall’s Family Program gives participants a better understanding of the dynamics of alcohol and drug addiction. It offers family members a perspective that they may never have contemplated while their loved one was using.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

It is the mission of Fellowship Hall to help people who suffer from alcoholism and drug addiction, and to provide compassionate, cost-effective care while maintaining our commitment to a Twelve-Step philosophy.

It is our vision that Fellowship Hall be the provider of choice for alcoholism and drug addiction treatment in the Southeastern region of our country by ensuring that every individual we serve receives exceptional, cost-effective care.

The Board of Directors of Fellowship Hall believes the success of the Hall is directly related to a set of collective values we hold, share and practice. These values form a basis for every action we take toward guests, family members, volunteers and each other. They are: integrity, honesty, dependability, quality, responsibility, attitude, and service.

By working our 3-year strategic plan, we will achieve our goals through:
1. Leadership - Empower all of the staff, board, and directors to be of maximum service to FH and the guests they serve with an enthusiastic and engaged attitude
2. Financial Stability - Develop and comply with an attainable balanced budget that clearly communicates financial goals for revenues and expenses for each of our programs, administrative expenses and fundraising efforts.
3. Service Delivery - Develop, maintain, and enhance care, treatment, and services delivered to guests, families, staff, and stakeholders
4. Facilities - Develop and implement a plan for facilities improvements
5. Partnerships, Collaborations, and Stakeholder Development - Ongoing development of partnerships, collaborations, and stakeholder relationships

With a professional staff and ongoing process improvements, we believe we can accomplish our goals and hold true to our mission of saving lives of those suffering from substance use disorder.

In FY2021 we had 100% Board participation in our fundraising efforts, raising over $438,000 to support both our operations and Partner Program - an initiative to provide treatment to individuals who lack health insurance and financial resources but have a strong desire and need for residential substance use treatment. Through this program, we partner with other treatment centers to accept patients into our Primary Program at no cost; in return, the referring partner agrees to continue the patients care once they discharge from our residential treatment program.

In addition, we have been tracking patient outcomes to measure the effectiveness of our programs. Nearly all of our guests opt into our Continuing Care program which monitors their recovery progress over the course of one year post discharge. Of the patients who actively participate in the program, 75% report sustaining their recovery at the one-year mark.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We measure and then disaggregate job satisfaction and retention data by race, function, level, and/or team.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
