The Adult Rehabilitation Center (ARC) is a free alcohol and drug rehabilitation program to any male over the age of 21 dealing with addiction. The Salvation Army ARC ministries in the United States provide an in-residence rehabilitation program with a focus on basic necessities.  The ARC in Birmingham is completely funded through sales at The Family Stores. There are two family stores in Birmingham located at 76 Green Springs Hwy in Homewood and 2741 John Hawkins Parkway in Hoover.

I just left the ARC after 4.5 months. The facility is clean. There is plenty of food. There are people working there who genuinely care about the beneficiaries. This program is, in reality, a slave-labor program that compels its clients to work 40 hours or more a week in a warehouse/distribution setting for free, or 7-20 dollars a week. With the exception of two, every paid employee of the center is using drugs. This is NOT a place for someone who is just coming from jail, or is addicted to narcotics. The door is always unlocked, you can leave anytime, and clients are literally surrounded by easily stolen goods that can often trigger theft and consequent relapse. Their religious views will be shoved down one's throat vehemently, different views are not an option. Many of the people who work there are addicts, and are still actively addicted, and as such, will go to any length to protect themselves from getting caught. This usually results in clients being unfairly accused in order to divert attention from the real violators. It is the sole discretion of the addict staff members to kick out a client. This can happen at 11pm at night, and the person is given black garbage bags with their clothes in it, and told to leave, regardless of weather, time, financial status, living situation, etc. Do not go there unless you have no other option. In July 2019, 34 people came in, and 33 left or were terminated.
