Realizing that there is a relationship between religious/spiritual beliefs and health; many faith-based organizations (such as churches, temples, synagogues, and mosques) are developing health ministries and extending those ministries beyond their own members to include entire communities. Our local faith based organizations are places of support and spiritual guidance for those still struggling with substance us, those in recovery, and their families.

The Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center

570 Main Street

Poughkeepsie, NY 12601


 For over 100 years The Salvation Army’s Adult Rehabilitation Centers have provided spiritual, social, and emotional assistance for men and women who have lost the ability to cope with their problems and provide for themselves. Centers offer residential housing, work, and group and individual therapy, all in a clean, wholesome environment. The care that program participants receive prepares them to re-enter society and return to gainful employment. Many of those who have been rehabilitated are reunited with their families and resume a normal life. Each program participant is provided with a clean and healthy living environment, good food, work therapy, leisure time activities, group and individual counseling, spiritual direction, and resources to develop life skills. The ARC program is made possible through the generosity of those who donate goods that can be sold in our family thrift stores and provide services that are made available to the participants of our programs.
