Our free programs provide the tools to treat the symptoms - and the root causes - of alcohol and drug dependence.
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.
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 located across the country. 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.
The Northern New England division has one center for men battling substance abuse that is located in Portland. However, those in need can be connected to locations in other states as needs arise. Several of our local units offer small groups for those recovering from addiction through Celebrate Recovery or a AA site. Please reach out to the local Salvation Army for further details.
If you are in need you can contact the Portland Adult Rehabilitation Center below

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 rehabilitation are reunited with their families and are able to resume healthy daily routines. Kids get their parents back. People get their lives back.
$50 helps helps provide one night of housing for a rehabilitation resident.
