The Southeast Michigan Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation program is a six (6) month residential rehabilitation program that provides services in the area of substance addiction. The spiritually based work therapy program affords the men the opportunity for recovery within a Christian atmosphere, offering friendship, encouragement and spiritual motivation, a compulsion to help the men as an expression of Divine Love. The ultimate aim of rehabilitation is the re-entry of beneficiaries into society as functional and productive citizens.
Other services provided include, Individual & Group Counseling, Christian education & Guidance, Chemical Dependency Education, Domestic Violence Intervention Program, Relapse Prevention Education, Anger Management Education, Bible Study, and Community Re-Entry/ Outreach Program.
The Five Level Program provides a comprehensive holistic service that meets the physical, social & spiritual regeneration of men with substance abuse problems.
Interactive journals are the framework of the program. The journals provide organization & structure to the program that help beneficiaries stay focused on important issues of their life and develop a personal plan for success.
Beneficiaries are assigned journals for each level. Each level is measured by completion of specific goals and objectives. Advancement to the next level will depend on completion of all requirements of the beneficiary’s current level.
The overall result of our program delivery is gratifying. From October 2008 through October 2009, a total of 180 Beneficiaries were rehabilitated from chemical dependency, providing hope and compassion to the less fortunate substance abusers in our community. The 180 beneficiaries who successfully completed the 180 days program translate into 32,400 days of freedom from substance abuse.
The growing of our program is gaining in both public awareness within other service providers throughout the metropolitan area, as indicated by the increasing number of referrals from other agencies.
The current scale of the program is impressive. Equally important is the quality care offered to each beneficiary. Every beneficiary admitted to our program receives a continuing supportive social services and referrals through the office of the Post Completion Counselor.
Admission to the program is Monday-Friday, 8:00 to 11:30 AM. Applicants must have a current Michigan State ID or Driver's License & a social security card.
