Someone I grew up with is the intake coordinator. I can only vouch for him. I know he has been anywhere a recovering addict can possibly. If the rest of the staff is as knowledgable as him, then yes I would say it is a good program.

A fake!

Stinks like Harvey Daye Jr.

The REAL John Henry Holliday is registered and supports all the Military.

I bet you can't even support yourself.

Thank you DAV for your honest answer. I am sincere and want only honest answers and not crackpots who dont have a clue. Drug addiction is a very real epidemic and the addicts need real help.

The Salvation Army is one of the few, and may be the only, that does not have it's hand in the federal government's pockets for money. Recently, however,they have accepted a small amount of federal funding. The person who runs this organization makes peanuts compared to people who run United Way, Goodwill and other community service organizations. IMO, the Salvation Army is a very good organization so this program is probably also very good.

Again, I thank you for your honest answer. I know it takes dedication, patience and compassion to deal with addicts; to take them in at no cost, only asking that they work for the Army, and that is certainly a plus as addicts find it very hard to find jobs. Not too many people will hire recovering addicts unless they have been clean for a very long time. work is part of recovery . It costs thousands of dollars to feed, house, clothe, and work the recovery program for addicts. My hat is off to the Salvation Army!

My son went there a few months ago and only stayed 6 weeks. It is a great place; nothing bad about the place, he just thought he could not finish the program. He is much older , so, I think your son will adapt much better. They do have rules as all rehabs do but none they cannot abide by. They have a nice facility, great food, faith based teaching and they have to work there to pay for their keep. I would recommend it highly. My son has been to several rehabs, so I know what I am saying. Good luck to your son. God Bless

The salvation does a wonderful job if the addict sticks to the program. Have known of a few that went there and are still successful in their recovery many years later. Also a few recent ones who are in a much better place. And twice this program has helped two people very close to me. One is currently there. I hope he is as successful as the other who went through over 25 years ago. You do have to be willing to work though which some are not, and just want a free ride.

Never shop or donate to the SA!!! All of these people are gold diggers and do not help the poor! The drug program is against gays and homosexuals and will not help them!!! They make the person in these programs work 40 hours a week and take their SSI checks if they have one! Their program doesn't work! They also charge them for their meals while they are staying there!!! It's craziness! How does this help these people?? If you google Salvation Army scams you will find all mind of employees stealing large amounts of donated money!! And some of these employees are CEO's of the company! They are greedy! They take the donated things and sell it and research it...the Big CEO over this company is filthy rich!!! Give to the Red Cross! The people who really give and help!!!

That it will be very difficult for him. That he will want to leave immediately. but if he sticks with it, with your help and love and support, and most of all if he Doesn't Get Sucked Into the Bullshit that the other members will inevitably try to suck him into, it can be a life changing experience. it can open your eyes to how you treat yourself and how you think about life. It can truly do good. but man it's tough to get through. kind of like a prison, only you can leave whenever you want which actually makes it harder to stay. he's got to focus on himself and not worry about the heavy handed Christian message. its only temporary, you don't stay there forever.Take the good parts and ignore the bad parts. Good luck.
