Review by Rehabs.com Contributors


Union Gospel Mission of Salem, Ore., offers a range of services for people struggling with substance use, homelessness, and mental health disorders. Also known as UGM of Salem, the faith-based center provides adult men and women with over 18 months of residential substance use treatment.


According to its website, the Union Gospel Mission of Salem provides treatment under its New Life Fellowship Program. People typically stay in this program for more than 18 months, making UGM of Salem one of just 33 facilities statewide that offers 30 or more days of residential care. Programming consists of a “stabilization process, transformation of false of beliefs to truth, transitioning into new behaviors, and finding employment.”

UGM of Salem runs separate homes for men and women - the Men’s Mission and Simonka Place for Women and Children. These programs focus on education and employment. At the learning centers, men and women prepare for the GED exams under a personalized learning plan. Employment services help men and women prepare to re-enter the workforce through resume and cover letter writing, interview coaching, connections to employers, and stable housing. Only 44.7 percent of facilities statewide focus on employment.

Additional services include intensive case-management, permanent supportive housing, government program assistance, counseling, spiritual guidance, life skill classes, relapse prevention, and mental health support.


While there is currently no information provided by the facility regarding its treatment staff, the single individual polled by Rehabs.com to date on the matter gave UGM of Salem four out of five stars for staff support.


The center’s website notes that the Men's Mission has 200 beds, though it’s unclear how these beds are divided up amongst the center’s different programs and services.


The single alum surveyed by Rehabs.com to date shared details of a positive treatment experience, awarding UGM of Salem four out of five stars for holistic offerings, staff support, leisure activities, and cleanliness.


The loved one polled by Rehabs.com to date indicated that they’d recommend UGM of Salem to others. “It's the best I have found anywhere,” they wrote. “They treat the whole person & all the issues.”


There is currently no information provided by the facility regarding its cost of treatment, though the single alumni respondent of a Rehabs.com survey indicated that treatment was worth the cost.
