Many of our homeless shelters, transitional living centers, and programs offer supportive services for fighting alcohol and drug addiction, including Alcohol & Narcotics Anonymous support groups, individual therapy, counseling and, clear codes of behavior to ensure patients continue to stay sober.
Adult Rehabilitation Centers
The Salvation Army's Adult Rehabilitation Centers (ARCs) comprise the largest residential rehabilitation program in the United States five of which are located in Southern California. Locations include Anaheim, Canoga Park, Long Beach, Pasadena, Santa Monica, San Bernardino, San Diego and Perris. ARC’s are free to the public and financed through our Salvation Army Family Thrift Stores.
Adult Rehabilitation Centers are probably the most widely known of all Salvation Army services. They provide long-term, social model, and residential recovery programs for individuals seeking to deal with substance abuse and other addictions. They seek to help participants regain self-worth, learn how to build an orderly and disciplined life and become contributing members of society. Each program participant is provided with a clean and healthy living environment, nutritious food, group and individual counseling, spiritual direction, work therapy assignments and recreational activities.
Other Addiction Treatment Services
In addition to the Adult Rehabilitation Centers, The Salvation Army runs three state-certified addiction treatment programs. The Haven, Hope Harbor, and Bell Shelter all provide assessments, medical and psychological assistance, transitional housing, group and individual counseling, educational services, employment assistance and recreation and leisure time activities.
