The Salvation Army is a faith based Christian organization with a mandate to helping the unfortunates of society, including the homeless and those suffering with addictions to drugs or alcohol. An international organization, the Salvation Army boasts more than 4 million members in 100 countries throughout the world.
Salvation Army residential drug rehab programs are free for those with financial need, and may require some payment from those that can afford it. The program costs are subsidized through yearly charitable appeals (especially at Christmas) and as well through the proceeds of the Salvation Army stores, which are more often than not staffed by recovering addicts participating in the program.
Most participants in The Salvation Army's Adult Recovery Programs have already received some form of supervised medical detox and often a limited duration of inpatient rehab, but continue to benefit from a long and structured stay within a Salvation Army drug rehab.
