The Salvation Army, although a charitable non profit organization devoted to the provision of affordable or no charge drug and alcohol rehabilitation to those in need, has come under fire for it's discriminatory hiring practices towards gays and lesbians.

The Salvation Army considers same sex relationships immoral and homosexuality a sin, and has does not hire people it feels are morally unfit. The Salvation Army recovery programs are not likely suitable programs for the drug rehabilitation needs of the gay, lesbian and transgendered communities.

For those in financial need, the Salvation Army is there to help. With low cost or free access to long term rehabilitation, the program offers hope to the otherwise hopeless, and has a long tradition of helping the unfortunates of society. Because the treatment is both intensive and long lasting, the Salvation Army offers men and women with severe addictions sufficient periods of sobriety and a way to transition back into the world of temptation over a long period of treatment.

Through work education, spiritual teachings and other educational programming, the Salvation Army strives to better the odds of success and sobriety as it preaches its faith based Christian approach to recovery.

There are Salvation Army Adult Recovery Centers in virtually all major cities of the United States, and most offer treatment for no or very little cost.
