MADISON COUNTY, Ala. - The Christmas kettle collections are awesome, but that is not nearly everything the Salvation Army does to help communities.
In addition to assisting with natural disasters locally and in the Southeastern region, the Salvation Army provides an adult rehabilitation program year round.
It's intended to help adults recover from drug and/or alcohol addiction. This is one of the programs sustained by community donations and earning money from the Family Thrift store.
The purpose of the Corps Salvage Rehabilitation Center, or CSRC, is to provide rehabilitative services to adult men with substance abuse issues and/or addictions.
The beneficiaries receive room and board, clothing as necessary, and appropriate medical and dental referrals at no cost, thus providing a healthy and safe environment to begin recovery. The program is designed to help the 'whole person' recover from his addiction physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
The Salvation Army provides the opportunity to those wishing to rid themselves of the bondage and yoke of addiction a six-month to a year rehabilitation program.
The 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.
