Mission The Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center ministries in the United States provide an in-residence rehabilitation program with a focus on basic necessities. Each beneficiary (program participant) is provided with a clean and healthy living environment, good food, work therapy, leisure time activities, group and individual counseling, spiritual direction, and resources to assist each person to develop life skills and a personal relationship with God as provided by Jesus Christ.
The Adult Rehabilitation Center program assists the beneficiaries in learning to live a balanced lifestyle. Participation in all program components is required by every beneficiary. We use work as therapy to assist persons in learning or re-learning how to be productive, participate cooperatively, follow instructions, contribute towards a goal, and maintain balance. We use individual and group counseling to assist with character formation (a change of thinking and behavior). We offer spiritual direction to help the beneficiaries embrace the practical application of the Christian faith as a lifestyle and encourage them to become established in a church community of their choice. Each center is able to offer other services on site or in conjunction with available community resources.
