ROCKFORD (WREX) — Do you know someone struggling with an alcohol or substance abuse problem? A program in Rockford wants to help.
The Salvation Army adult rehabilitation center says it has 40 open spots in its men’s program.
The program seeks to help men get their life back on track by providing weekly and group counseling sessions, AA meetings, vocational training, and more.
The facility has housing and serves three meals a day.
“I was struggling with addiction and so now, being in this position I’m able to relate to the men from a more personal standpoint having had that experience myself, know what they’re going through, I know what it’s like to walk through the door,” ARC Program Director Demetrous Nobles said.
The rehabilitation program lasts six months, but allows for an extra six months at the facility for a transitional period.
It is free for any man over the age of 18, who has no income. A small fee is charged for men with a regular income.
