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.

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.

This place is a joke. Rev Rick was my councilor and he told me that my son was a mistake, not part of God's plan, since he was born out of wedlock. For an addict trying to better his life, this place made everything worse. I put my heart and soul into trying to get better, and instead I've seen them for who they truly are. 4 people i was close to with there, are not DEAD! They push God on you so much, that if you don't believe everything they do, you get kicked out. I did finish the program, only to use the first day I got out. I'm now fully an atheist, but A LOT more spiritual than anyone that works there. OH also the pastor who was running the place got fired for cheating on his wife with two of the girls in the program, he had three young boys too, what a waste. Also one of the councilors got fired for stealing from a woman, I'm talking thousands of dollars. My advise, SEEK HELP ELSEWHERE!!!

Wow...you're some kind of special insane. Let me guess...the moon landing was fake, the earth is flat, aliens live among us and everyone is out to get you...lol
While the SA isn't perfect, it helps those who accept the help. No one is making anyone stay there. The front door is always open. The rules are simple: Work the program, go to meetings, do the work therapy,(what, you don't get to stay for six months for free and be fed? Waaa!) and take responsibility. No, they don't charge you for meals...moron. No, they do not tell homosexuals the program is not for them. I've known a few who went through the program and 'graduated' and are doing fine. The only people who don't want to participate (if they are an alcoholic or drug addict) are those who simply aren't ready to quit. Like I wrote above; if you don't want to stay and do the program, don't let the door hit your ass on the way out.
