Betels, Christ-centered communities dedicated to restoring substance-dependent and marginalized people to productive and independent lifestyles, can be found in 15 countries. The emphasis is on the restoration of personality that is found in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Betel has always followed the approach that addicts must quit, cold turkey. There are no substitute drugs to help them slowly work their way off heroin or other drugs — no alcohol, no cigarettes, no exceptions. "We don’t have a separate detox program," Elliott explains. Addicts trade a life of being high on drugs to being high on God. "It’s total abstinence. There’s no medication. They just have to live in the community, and they have to quit, cold turkey. Most programs allow people to smoke; we don’t. "The program is also completely voluntary — and free.
