Review by Contributors


Located in downtown Wilke-Barre, Pa., the Salvation Army’s Family Store and Adult Rehabilitation Center (ARC) is a faith-based residential addiction treatment program for men.


The ARC in Wilkes-Barre aims to meet each program participant’s basic needs. While residing in a clean, supportive living environment, men take part in daily work therapy (typically in the thrift store) and attend group and individual counseling sessions. As the program is faith-based, an emphasis is placed on developing “a personal relationship with God as provided by Jesus Christ.”


There is currently no information provided by the Wilkes-Barre ARC regarding its treatment staff.


Men receive daily meals and have additional time for leisure activities.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY has not yet received any reviews from this facility’s alumni.

On Facebook, however, where the Salvation Army of Wilkes-Barre has an average rating of 4.6 out of five stars from 40 individuals, Aaron called it an “Awesome place for recovery” while Herb gave his approval: “If your looking for help this is the place to come.”[1]


In the sole survey to date, an anonymous loved one gave only two stars for treatment effectiveness, meals, and family programming, but four or five stars for the staff’s level of training and experience, affordability and cost-worthiness, and treatment for co-occurring disorders. In sum, they found the ARC a “Very compassionate” faith-based program that “doesnot ‘baby’ the resident."


As part of the rehabilitative program, men work in the thrift store. According to the program’s webpage, “all earned income” goes back to help run the program.
