Adult Rehabilitation Centers

The Salvation Army is the largest provider of free, no cost rehabilitation programs

If you or someone you know is struggling with substance abuse, we can help.

Our centers provide a safe place for recovery, while rebuilding a lifestyle free and safe of dependency. No judgement, no shame. Our six month program offers a place to sleep, food to eat, and a new beginning - all at no cost to program participants.

The Salvation Army is the largest provider of free, no cost residential rehabilitation programs in the country. Each year, we help more than 150,000 adults conquer alcohol and drug addiction. Our faith-based program enables participants to identify the root cause of prolonged dependence and seek recovery through strength from God.


For over 100 years, The Salvation Army has been fighting alcoholism at its Adult Rehabilitation Centers. This ministry began in 1881 when William Booth, founder of The Salvation Army, opened shelters for homeless people on the streets of England. During this time many homeless people were also alcoholics, and it was in these shelters that the rehabilitation ministry began. By the 1940s, our American centers were developing a more professional counseling program, and in the 1950s, hired professional social workers and psychologists as permanent staff. Today, our rehabilitation ministry serves those suffering from alcoholism, as well as multiple drug addictions.

The Mission

We offer a safe, compassionate place where people can heal. All their needs are met, including housing and food, so their energy is entirely focused on getting better. For six months, participants are immersed in our holistic approach to combat their substance abuse or personal challenges, so they can enjoy a healthy lifestyle. They participate in work therapy, group and individual spiritual counseling sessions, addiction education, relapse prevention and Christian living opportunities. This enables them to develop important life skills to combat addiction.


The Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center's are totally self-supporting, receiving no government funding. In order to support the ministry, The Salvation Army takes discarded items that people donate, recycles them and then sells them in Salvation Army Stores. These donations are accepted and processed on-site at our stores.

Find the nearest donation drop-off location and support our work. You can also donate financially to support our programs that combat addiction.
