Our drug and alcohol rehabilitation program is supported through:

  • Donations of household items, furniture and clothing
  • Donations of vehicles
  • Purchases at Salvation Army Thrift Stores
  • Volunteers who help with the counseling program or donation process
  • Local businesses who donate property for Salvation Army donation trailers

Please keep our program and the lives that it touches in your prayers.

The purpose of the CSRC is to provide rehabilitative services to adult men with substance abuse issues and/or addiction.  The beneficiaries receive room and board, clothing as necessary, and appropriate medical and dental referrals at no cost, thus providing a healthy and safe enviroment to begin recovery.  The program is designed to help the "whole person" recover from his addiction; physically, mentally, emotionally and most importantly, spiritually.

The Salvation Army provides the opportunity to those wishing to rid themselves of the bondage and yoke of addiction a (6) six month rehabilitation program.

The (6) six month program is a faith based work therapy program in which there are attendance requirements for group meetings, 12-step meetings and church services.

The Salvation Army maintains a complex with four apartments, in order to provide an opportunity for men who have completed the primary rehabilitation program to re-enter our community as productive members of society, while affording the men an opportunity to clear up any debt or restitution owed.

Philippians 3:13-14 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

There are two kinds of birds that roam the desert: vultures and hummingbirds. The vulture thrives on a diet of rotting meat. He flies overhead searching for traces of leftover carcasses from slow-footed critters eaten by wild animals who've already had their fill.

Hummingbirds, on the other hand, will sweep through the desert, passing over all those repulsive, dead animals and seek colorful patches of beautiful wild desert flowers. They will suckle the delicious juices of those sweet desert blossoms and be satisfied.

While vultures look to the dead for their survival, the hummingbird seeks the living! Likewise, some of us unconsciously look to our past with its regrets, failures and sins to keep us alive. We think that somehow by looking back to those dead things, we might find some motivation to keep surviving here and now. But let's take a lesson from the hummingbird.

Let's sweep past that which is dead and focus on the sweet new life -- the exciting future that God holds for those that seek Him and move forward in our relationship with Him!
