We Reunite Families

Our no-fee adult rehabilitation programs help individuals overcome their addictions, giving kids their parents back.

Hope Lives Here

Every day in America, over 6,500 people are hospitalized for substance abuse. That's 6,500 families disrupted by the effects of addiction. In San Jose, The Salvation Army's Adult Rehabilitation Centers help residents combat their addictions, build the work and social skills needed to re-enter the workforce, regain health and stability, and restore families that have been disrupted due to substance abuse. 

"I Have a Renewed Relationship With my Son"

“I entered the ARC in February because after four years of being clean and sober, I relapsed! I owed a drug debt and I was close to losing my housing and needed to get myself back together. Many changes have occurred since coming here! I think the biggest change has been my attitude...When I look in the mirror, I see a different person. I see one who has a renewed motivation for life and sense a strong purpose for my future. I have a renewed relationship with my son, maintained my home, I’m steadily bringing down my debt." -Alonzo

How We Serve in San Jose

The San Jose Adult Rehabilitation Center's drug and alcohol programs are social model, work therapy programs. That means that we don't "treat" addictions with more drugs. Instead, we train men and women to live without drugs and alcohol through a six-month residential program that helps them learn about themselves, their addictions, and the God who made them and wants to set them free.

Here's how we help men and women combat addiction and prepare to re-enter their communities whole and healthy again.

Combat Addiction
Through holistic work-therapy, group, and individual counseling sessions, spiritual direction, and life skills development, residents learn to abandon substance reliance.

Build Work and Social Skills
In San Jose, each person in our drug and alcohol program is given work which helps train them to succeed in future employment. They learn to be on time, show respect, add value, set and meet goals, and do good work. The physical and spiritual components of the program equip residents to provide for themselves and others as they set and maintain sustainable employment goals.

Regain Health and Stability
By developing a personal relationship with God as provided by Jesus Christ, many residents learn to depend on God for relief, rather than turning to drugs or alcohol.

Restore Families
Many who have been rehabilitated are reunited with their families and are able to resume healthy daily routines. Kids get their parents back. People get their lives back.
