ABOUT SALVATION ARMY ADULT REHABILITATION CENTER - BIRMINGHAM

Set in downtown Birmingham, Ala., the Salvation Army’s Adult Rehabilitation Center (ARC) provides free shelter, rehabilitation, and hope for a new start in life for adult men aged 21+ who are addicted to drugs and/or alcohol. In addition to addiction treatment services, the nonprofit organization also offers shelters for the homeless, workforce training, job placement assistance, and transitional housing once a client has successfully completed treatment. Detox services are not offered on-site.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

As with The Salvation Army in general, this facility is based on Christian spiritual principles, describing itself as “a spiritual ministry, motivated by both a love of God and a desire to meet the practical needs of humanity.”

Most who apply are admitted within a couple of days, and the average stay lasts six to nine months. Clients partake in individual and group counseling during treatment. Work therapy, spiritual guidance, and life skills development also factor into treatment. Clients have time for leisure activities as well.

On ARC's Facebook page, which ARC can manage, seven reviewers to date rated the facility an average 4.1 out of five stars, with five perfect five-star ratings, one three-star, and one one-star rating.[1] Alumni mostly praised the program's spiritual direction.

The one-star reviewer criticized the facility for turning him away numerous times.

FINANCING

It was free program and they were able to admit me in a very short period of time. It isn't the the "Country Club" style rehab centers but it is free and they do give you the tools to leave drug free...if you want it. It is a very hard program but for me was well worth it. I even stayed for an additional 6 months after actually completing the program while I found work and saved money to move out on my own.
