Everyone Deserves a Second Chance

The Salvation Army of Greenville's rehabilitation program is a six-month, residential program for men struggling with drug and alcohol addiction. The Salvation Army's distinguishing feature in its rehabilitation services is a strong belief in spiritual rejuvenation. The program focuses on holistic change, targeting the mental, physical and spiritual rehabilitation of the person. The majority of men who come to the program for assistance are experiencing issues in many areas of their lives (i.e. social, medical, spiritual, personal and employment problems). However, the common factor for all of the program participants is an addiction to drugs and/or alcohol. The Salvation Army of Greenville's rehabilitation services are provided at no cost. Program participants agree to a six-month residential program designed to deal with the issues in their lives and to help them become a healthy, functioning member of society.

A personal relationship with God gives us inner strength and hope, and many chronic substance abusers have found lasting sobriety and a rewarding lifestyle through Christian living. Another important part of the program is work therapy. Through work therapy opportunities, program participants find satisfaction and self-worth by becoming productive and self-sufficient. Program participants also attend individual weekly counseling sessions, personal Bible study, morning devotions, regular weekly worship services and more. At the end of the program, successful graduates return to the community as rehabilitated wage earners who positively contribute to society. The men's rehabilitation program is located at 417 Rutherford Street, Greenville, SC, 29609. For more information, please call 864-235-4803.
