Adult Rehabilitation Centers

The Salvation Army has 3 Adult Rehabilitation Centers in Northeast Ohio that offer a spiritually-based rehabilitation program.


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 from substance abuse. Our six month program offers a place to sleep, food to eat, and a new beginning - with no income or insurance required.


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. Today, our rehabilitation ministry serves men and women struggling with substance abuse.

The Mission

Our rehabilitation ministry provides housing, clothing, educational aid and work experience to men and women who are seeking help for a drug or alcohol addiction. We focus rehabilitation around the spiritual fulfillment that comes through a personal relationship with Christ, offering a variety of programs that enhance this spiritual ideal.


The Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Centers are totally self-supporting, receiving no government funding. In order to support the ministry, The Salvation Army takes donated items, recycles them and then sells them in Salvation Army Stores. These donations are accepted and processed on-site at our stores or via our free pick-up service.

Who Is Eligible?

A comprehensive intake interview is required from every potential program participant to insure that the individual seeking help and the program are a good match. In the event that the interview process determines that the program is not appropriate every attempt will be made to make a referral to more appropriate help.

Although the core program is basically the same, Adult Rehabilitation Center programs may vary somewhat from center to center. Each applicant must come with the recognition of a need that can be addressed within the framework of the entire Adult Rehabilitation Center program. A long term commitment of at least 6 months helps the participants make life choices and changes that, upon reentry, will enable them to maintain themselves as productive citizens of their community.

Applicants with a desire to get help may be referred by families, friends, courts, clergy, and community leaders or simply contact the offices (shown above) to make an appointment or get more information.

Because our Family Thrift Stores are fully operated by The Salvation Army, the proceeds go directly into our charitable work. In fact, every dollar generated by our Family Thrift Stores is used to fund our Adult Rehabilitation Centers. These centers help over 60,000 people work through various life issues each year, ultimately working to assist them in rejoining their communities as productive members.

Additionally, our stores provide thousands of employment opportunities for the general public and work therapy opportunities for people in rehabilitation to learn valuable vocational skills and regain their self-esteem.
