Our free programs provide the tools to treat the symptoms - and the root causes - of alcohol and drug dependence.
Overdoses are becoming a daily occurrence in our Tippecanoe Emergency Rooms. We're prepared to fight this epidemic through our Adult Rehabilitation Centers. We partner with Adult Rehabilitation Centers in Chicago, Ft. Wayne and Indianapolis. There is hope for a new drug, free life and we can help get you there.
Our leader, Lt. Aaron, is a graduate of the Salvation Army's ARC. In August 2011, after losing everything to drugs and alcohol, Aaron was arrested and sent to jail for drinking and driving. While in jail he met a man who told him about ARC. After being released Aaron checked himself in at the ARC in Ft. Wayne. Through much hard work, determination, and prayer Aaron successfully graduated from the program and started rebuilding his life without drugs and alcohol. 7 years later he's joyfully serving the Lord as a Salvation Army Officer.
We're in the fight to help end substance use disorder in Tippecanoe. Here's how:
Our Partnership with Trinity Life Ministry: “Discovering God’s freedom for men in addiction.”
Trinity Life Mission meets every week at The Salvation Army to address the heart of addiction and to help people become transformed through the power of Jesus Christ. The program helps those struggling with substance use disorder to develop daily disciplines, accountability, and peer counseling. This ministry revolves around the best selling book Heart of Addiction by Dr. Mark Shaw, “God’s word lovingly tells us the truth about the heart of addiction.”

Our Partnership with the Tippecanoe Opioid Task Force:
Our leaders, Lt. Rachel and Aaron Johnson are proud to serve on the prevention committee for the Tippecanoe Opioid Task Force. This committee works to "identify all the substance misuse prevention and education activities occurring in the county, cradle to grave, to focus on gaps and opportunities and increase trauma-informed practices in the community".
Addressing Behavioral Health in Youth: "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure"
We know that behaviors that manifest later in life often start with beliefs in early lie. Through curriculum like "Understanding my Teen Brain" and through the Salvation Army's Christian Education Programs called Character building (centralyouthnetwork.com) we address issues of behavioral health by teaching children and youth make good choices that lead to a drug-free life.
