Due to COVID-19 there have been changes made to our Adult Rehabilitation Program. For current information please head to our COVID-19 Page.
Here is what we are doing concerning admissions into the program.
- Currently the Program is not accepting “walk-ins” unless they have documentation from a healthcare provider (ARPN,PA, MD) that demonstrates that they are medically clear for our communal structure.
- We are continuing to work with the criminal justice system as they are clearing the men before transporting them.
- We are also working with medical facilities (hospitals, detox).

About the Adult Rehabilitation Program
The Salvation Army of Washoe County provides a 70-beds 26-week program for ages 18-62 years old men with no charge of entering the program. We help these men restore their lives themselves and with the ones they hurt. During this program, we help them to become productive people back into society. We use a balanced program of Work Therapy, Spiritual Development, and Education to help them into recovery. The recovery process is hard and through the dedication of fellow alumni of the program and competent staff members, we help that person dealing with the grips of addiction and rebuild him into a new man.
Components of the Program
There are three components of the program like stated earlier that we use to help men with the grips of addiction.
- Beneficiaries are required to participate in all spiritual offerings of the APR, which are based on traditional Christian beliefs.
- Work Therapy
- Learning how to work and how to cope with the stresses of the workplace is crucial. All beneficiaries will do 40 hours of work therapy per week.
- Participants spend time in classes to teach them about their addiction and are required to attend a minimum number of 12-step meetings both on-site and off-site.
