We Give Kids Their Parents Back

If you need help for yourself or a loved one, our no-cost programs tackle the symptoms and causes of alcohol and drug dependence.

Donate Now

The Salvation Army has been helping those battling substance abuse since our founding over 150 years ago. Today, we are continuing this pledge of helping people recover with a holistic approach at our Adult Rehabilitation Centers. Our programs include emotional, spiritual, and social services components that focus on the root causes of the struggle. We understand that every person's addiction is different, and has a devastating impact on family and friends - both emotionally and economically - so our programming is always available at no cost.

Addiction is an epidemic.
For many, The Salvation Army is the cure.

Watch how The Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Centers help restore families every day.

Each year we help equip over 150,000 people in the U.S. to:

Combat Addiction

Every single day, men and women learn to abandon their substance reliance through work therapy, individual and group counseling sessions, life skills development and spiritual guidance at our Adult Rehabilitation Centers. 

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. Salvation Army Stores were started more than 100 years ago as a way to provide work experience for the men, and now women, in our rehabilitation programs. These same stores also raise the funds that make it possible for the program to be offered free of charge to participants.

Regain Health and Stability

Drugs, alcohol, pornography, and other addictions have a strangling grip that is hard to break. Our rehabilitation programs can help you break free and reclaim the hope that was once lost. The circumstances of addiction are often unthinkable, but with counseling, patience, prayer and a limitless supply of God's love, we offer a starting point on the path to freedom from addiction.

Restore Family Relationships

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

Addiction costs us all.

Costs related to abuse of tobacco, alcohol, and illegal drugs total over $700 billion annually. $700 billion is enough to pay every nurse's salary in America for the next nine years.
