Some of the folks who stay in our shelters, struggle with addiction.
One of our primary goals is long-term sobriety.
Some of the residents who will stay at a The Salvation Army- Family House Shelter may have struggled with addiction. One of the primary goals of a stay is to ensure the individuals are working on their sobriety by avoiding alcohol and drugs.
In the past we have helped many people with their sobriety. In one of our Polk County programs, a resident was facing having to exit the program due to continuing to use alcohol. He had attempted to stay sober three different times in our programs, the fourth time he finally agreed to go to treatment through the Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center. He has been sober since and has regained his independence. He is thankful for the staff who encouraged him to get sober and on a better path. He has been sober for more than 3 years.
Staying in our shelters means staying drug and alcohol-free
