The Salvation Army Minneapolis Adult Rehabilitation Center is a long-term, residential rehabilitation program, providing services in the areas of alcohol and drug addiction recovery on a pay-as-you-can basis. Up to 130 men can be served at any given time, with graduation after six to 12 months.
Within a Christian atmosphere and philosophy, the center offers men the opportunity to regain their self-respect and acquire the life skills needed to take their rightful place in society.
The rehabilitation process is intensive and requires a strong commitment by the residents to the full six-month term or longer. The center is not a temporary shelter or a place to stay while seeking employment.

We make every effort to bring about total recovery with a positive after-care support plan tailored for each individual. The goal is re-entry into society with sufficient supports for maintenance of sobriety and growth.
There is no fee involved to enter the program and no one will be turned away because of lack on income. Because of the intensity of the program, residents are not permitted to hold outside employment.
The main funding for the program is The Salvation Army Stores in the Twin Cities area. Materials which are donated by the community are collected and sorted before distribution to the family stores. The income generated by the sale of these items supports the rehabilitation program. There are no government, city or United Way funds used in the operation of the program.
For those men who do have income, we request that they pay a nominal fee to help defray the cost of room and board during their stay.
Is this treatment center really free?
Most of the listings on this website are free; however, we decided it would also be helpful for our visitors to see sliding scale treatment centers and low cost rehab centers for low income persons.
