Our free programs provide the tools to treat the symptoms - and the root causes - of alcohol and drug dependence.
For over 100 years, The Salvation Army has offered spiritual, emotional, and social assistance to those who have lost the ability to cope with their problems and provide for themselves. Our free programs provide housing, food, counseling, community, and employment as we work to treat the symptoms, and ultimately the root causes, of prolonged alcohol and drug dependence.
In our Division, the Adult Rehabilitation Center (ARC) provides residential housing, work, and group and individual therapy, in a clean, wholesome environment. Our Turning Point program offers professional and comprehensive treatment of substance use disorders, including sub-acute detox, short-term residential and outpatient treatment.
"The great thing in this world is not so much where you stand, as in what direction you are moving." -- Oliver Wendell Holmes
The Salvation Army helps equip people to:
Through holistic work-therapy, group and individual counseling sessions, spiritual direction, and life skills development, residents learn to abandon substance reliance.
BUILD WORK AND SOCIAL SKILLS
The physical and spiritual components of the ARC program equip members to provide for themselves and others as they set and maintain sustainable employment goals.
REGAIN HEALTH AND STABILITY
By developing a personal relationship with God as provided by Jesus Christ, many residents learn to depend on God, rather than drugs or alcohol, for hope and relief.
Many who have been rehabilitated are reunited with their families and are able to resume healthy daily routines. Kids get their parents back. People get their lives back.
