Our free programs provide the tools to treat the symptoms - and the root causes - of alcohol and drug dependence.
Every day in America, over 6,500 people are hospitalized for substance abuse.
That's 6,500 people - with moms, dads and kids - disrupted by the effects of addiction.
For over 100 years, our Adult Rehabilitation Centers and Harbor Light Programs have offered spiritual, emotional and social assistance to those who have lost the ability to cope with their addictions and provide for themselves. The Salvation Army's free programs provide housing, food, counseling, community and employment as we work to treat the root causes and symptoms of prolonged alcohol and drug dependence.
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 program equip residents 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 for relief -- rather than turning to drugs or alcohol.
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.
