Welcome to the ARC Homepage

Men suffering from homelessness, poverty, substance abuse, chemical dependency or misdirected lives can get the help they need at the Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center.

The Adult Rehabilitation Center exists to help men grow closer to God in mind, body and spirit; overcome their addictions or afflictions; re-enter relationships with family, friends and society with a renewed and enriched sense of purpose; and live independently, self-sufficiently and morally.

Through the sale of donated items, including clothing, furniture and appliances, at Salvation Army thrift stores, the Adult Rehabilitation Center is able to sustain and enhance its programs and services offered to men throughout central Florida.

The Adult Rehabilitation Center (ARC), is a resident substance abuse rehabilitation program. Men come to the center for help when they are no longer able to cope with the pains of addiction. They have the benefits of group therapy, spiritual guidance and skilled counseling in a clean and stable environment. Residents receive nutritious meals, clean housing and engage in work therapy.

Program Overview

The Adult Rehabilitation Center (ARC) is a six-month residential substance abuse program, which houses up to 104 mostly indigent men at no cost to them. They are provided with nutritious meals and clean housing in a stable environment. These men receive the benefit of group therapy, guidance and skilled spiritual counseling in a “work therapy” type program.

As part of their job training they learn trades such as furniture refinishing, appliance and computer repair, through the processing and repair of donated items, such as clothing, furniture, appliances and bric-a-brac. The renovated items are sold to the public through the Army’s thrift stores, with the profits used to maintain the center and its programs. The ARC is the only department of The Salvation Army that is totally financially self-generating.

The demand for this service in our community is ever present. The ARC is the solution to the formerly destructive and life threatening behaviors of its residents. It continues daily to change lives by providing stability and normalcy where there was none.
