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 and women 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.


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.
