Women's Blue Creek House
The Good Samaritan Rehabilitation women's Blue Creek house is situated in the shadowy valley along Blue Creek road just a few minutes from Coeur d'Alene. This home is dedicated to seeing women, burdened in addiction, find freedom in Jesus Christ. The women's program is 120 days split into two phases of 60 days each. The first 60 days in the program is in the Good Samaritan women's inpatient house, where the women are ministered to and shown the truth of the Gospel.
The second phaseis done in a mentor home, where the women continue to grow in the Lord, but also learn the dynamic of family and how this applies in their own home living. During this phase, women are in the community under supervision and spend time working or volunteering while continuing their treatment and growth in Christ. When the women graduate they also have the option of going into a transition home to complete the 6 months of intensive outpatient.
Women bunk together in dormitory style accommodations and follow a detailed schedule from 6am to 10pm daily. In addition to daily classes, services, and housekeeping responsibilities, the women also have free time throughout the day to catch up on classwork, get in the word, or spend some relaxing and enjoying God's creation. Visiting at the Blue Creek house starts at 3pm every Sunday for approved family members.
