WHO WE ARE
The Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center (ARC) is a Christian, non-profit organization
committed to providing rehabilitation to individuals dependent on drugs and alcohol. The ARC
recognizes that a person’s physical, psychological and spiritual needs must be addressed before they can make any real progress towards their recovery.
The Salvation Army maximizes donations by using 84 cents of every dollar donated to provide direct services to help the most people in need. As a result, The Salvation Army is the charity that is doing the most good with contributions of money, time, and resources.

spiritually based substance abuse program. Admission is voluntary, and participants who find
themselves in need of The Salvation Army’s rehabilitation facility and benefits receive services at no
Program participants (known as beneficiaries) receive a medical evaluation, nourishing food,
housing, structured counseling, and opportunities to participate in sports and other recreational
Individuals who benefit from the ARC program come from all walks of life and backgrounds. Some were affluent professionals; others are high school dropouts. Some are referred by the judicial systems; others by a family member.
But they are not the only ones who benefit. For every person struggling with an addiction, at least six (6) others are affected. These include children, siblings, friends, spouses and parents.
