The Salvation Army believes that no one is beyond hope and each person has infinite value. We offer help to women and men who are looking to overcome their addiction to alcohol or drugs.

In the National Capital area, The Salvation Army operates Harbor Light Center, located in Northeast Washington, and two Adult Rehabilitation Centers, one in Northern Virginia and the other in suburban Maryland. The aim of all three programs is to provide a safe and healthy environment in which our clients may examine their core values and address their issues.

Harbor Light Center offers residential, outpatient and transitional programs to men and women, ages of 18 and over, that provide a full range of addiction treatment services. Typically, clients stay between 60 days to 24 months. Nearly 60% of those enrolled in the 180 day plan complete the program. For those involved in the optional religious component, the completion rate rises to 90%.

The Salvation Army’s Adult Rehabilitation Centers offer hope to men who have experienced chronic homelessness and joblessness due to substance abuse issues. While overcoming their addiction, clients receive close guidance to avoid relapse and life skills to get back on their feet.
