Adult Rehabilitation Program
Recovery program for chemically addicted men
"Through this program I have learned about self-discipline and hard work, how to be humble and how to handle obstacles that used to make me weak and send me looking for drugs."
- Sammy, ARC program graduate
Since it opened in 1950, the Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center (ARC) has provided support to over 40,000 Charlotte area men in their struggle to end their addictions.
The ARC program provides residential housing along with structured work and therapy to homeless men at our 118 bed facility. We help them recognize the value of their lives and learn skills essential for their transition to independent housing and continued recovery. The ARC provides services at no charge to individuals.
Men living at the ARC participate in a rigorous program that includes a mandatory 40-hour work week for all residents. The ARC manages five Salvation Army Family (Thrift) Stores throughout Greater Charlotte and program participants work a full day to help sort, repair, price, and deliver all donations sold in our stores. Revenue from The Salvation Army Family (Thrift) Stores is used directly to cover the cost of running the ARC.
In addition to job training, the ARC program includes classes, AA and NA meetings, spiritual study, curfew, recreation time and meals. These are all scheduled for residents to help them accept rules, authority and to build a healthy life.
In keeping with the Affirmative Action Program of The Salvation Army, services are available without regard to race, religion, or national origin
