Adult Rehab Centers Help Get Addicts Back on Their Feet
For over 100 years, “soldiers” in the Salvation Army have pursued their Christian mission with unflagging dedication, and their work in Chicago has been no exception. There, the Salvation Army’s Adult Rehabilitation Center provides spiritual, social and emotional assistance for men and women who have lost the ability to cope with their problems and provide for themselves.
The center offers residential housing, work, and group and individual therapy, all in a clean, wholesome environment. The physical and spiritual care that program participants receive prepares them to re-enter society and return to gainful employment. Many of those who have been rehabilitated are reunited with their families and resume a normal life.
One such ARC “graduate” is Rachel White. Rachel left Kansas City for New York in hopes of becoming a professional dancer. The crowd she fell in with drank hard and soon, so did she – nearly a bottle of vodka a day.
Her dancing career dried up when she could not and other programs failed.
“One of the reasons I turned to the Salvation Army is I realized my mind needed the time to heal,” White said. “It needed something more than just a quick fix.”
White spent six months at the Salvation Army’s ARC program in Chicago, working by day and taking classes at night.
“Without their help, I believe I would have drank myself to death,” White said.
