Adult Rehabilitation Services

Our no-cost programs that tackle alcohol and drug dependence give people their families, careers, and lives back.

Every day in America, over 6,500 people are hospitalized for substance abuse.

That’s 6,500 families – with moms, dads, and kids – disrupted by the effects of drug and alcohol addiction.


Each Year, We Help Equip Over 150,000 People to:

Combat Addiction

Through holistic work therapy, group and individual counseling sessions, spiritual direction, and life-skills development, program members learn to abandon substance reliance.

Build Work and Social Skills

The physical and spiritual components of the program equip members 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, rather than drugs or alcohol, for hope and relief.

Restore Families

Many who have been rehabilitated are reunited with their families and able to resume healthy daily routines. Kids get their parents back. People get their lives back.

 Serving All Without Discrimination

In providing its alcoholism and addiction recovery programs and services, The Salvation Army is committed to accommodating all those in need without unlawful discrimination or harassment based on age, race, color, religion, sex, national origin, marital status, disability, citizenship, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, or any other characteristic in accordance with our capacity to help.

Do you need help? Does someone you love need help?

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, a division of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services,
here are some signs of substance or alcohol addiction:


A person needs increasingly larger amounts of alcohol or drugs to get high.


A person feels a strong need, desire, or urge to use alcohol or drugs, continues using alcohol or a drug despite negative consequences, and feels anxious and irritable if he or she can’t use them.

Loss of control

A person often drinks more alcohol or takes more drugs than he or she meant to or may use alcohol or drugs at a time or place he or she had not planned.

Physical dependence or withdrawal symptoms

Even after alcohol or drug use is stopped, a person experiences withdrawal symptoms from a physical need for the substance.
