Harbor Light

Detox, Residential, and Outpatient Substance Abuse Treatment

Michigan Addiction Services

If you have experienced addiction first-hand or with a loved one, you know the toll it can take on the mental and physical well-being of its victims. Hope is the answer. By extending a helping hand, the Salvation Army Harbor Light Recovery Program provides a beacon of light to those seeking recovery.

How The Salvation Army Harbor Light System Helps

In 1939, The Salvation Army opened the doors to its first Harbor Light center in Detroit. This has since grown into the largest drug rehabilitation in the state and is known as The Eastern Michigan Salvation Army Harbor Light System.

The Salvation Army’s locations in Detroit, Clinton Township, and Monroe offer detox, residential, and outpatient substance abuse treatment. Harbor Light also shelters up to 750 clients at a time and serves 1.7 million meals each year. The Salvation Army Harbor Light System aims to end hunger and homelessness from the lives of our recovering clients. Harbor Light is open every day of the year.

Our Program

The Eastern Michigan Harbor Light System includes an inpatient residential rehab program that offers a wide variety of support for the early stages of recovery. During the detox stage, clients receive a physical exam, go through drug screening and are referred to next-level care. For those admitted to the residential inpatient program, food, shelter and support aid them on their journey to a drug-free life. This includes spiritual counseling and support groups.

Our outpatient and other services focus on helping women and children suffering abuse as well as legal aid and case management services. This includes transition services for veterans, temporary shelter and help with utilities as clients work towards independence following recovery.
