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 holistic help at our Adult Rehabilitation Centers and Harbor Light 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 free.
An estimated 88,000 people die from alcohol-related causes annually, making it the third leading preventable cause of death. In the past 20 years in the U.S., the drug overdose rate has tripled. Our programs can help write a different ending for someone's parent, child, or sibling.
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. Across the Midwest, our Harbor Light Centers are renowned for their grassroots homeless outreach, which includes rehabilitation from substance abuse in some locations too.
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.
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.
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.
