Adult Rehabilitation Center

The Salvation Army's Adult Rehabilitation Center is a residential work-therapy program for men and women who are substance abusers. Spiritual, social and emotional assistance are provided for those who have lost the ability to cope with their problems and provide for themselves.

Professional staff, volunteer support, and a structured environment, combined with work experience in the Family Stores, prepare these men 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.

Who Is Eligible?

Every potential participant undergoes a simple intake interview to ensure the ARC program is the best possible match for them. If the interview process determines it's not, every effort is made to refer the individual to a program that will be.

A long-term commitment of at least six months is required so patterns of poor decision-making can be broken and replaced with positive life choices. Applicants with a desire to get help may be referred by families, friends, courts, clergy and community leaders or may simply call the Intake Office at 901-531-1750 to make an appointment or get more information about the local ARC program.


The ARC is a self-sufficient program, solely dependent on the sale of donated items through its Family Stores. If you are looking for a great deal on clothes, furniture and household items, visit any of our three Family Stores in the tri-state area. Don't forget, every Wednesday, all regularly priced clothes are ½ price in all of our Family Stores.
