In Chico, our no-fee program provides the tools needed to overcome alcohol and drug dependence.
Every day in America, over 6,500 people are hospitalized for substance abuse. That's 6,500 families disrupted by the effects of addiction.
The George Walker Center Adult Rehabilitation Program is a 6-month rehabilitation program dedicated to the rebuilding of human lives. Since its inception, the Adult Rehabilitation Program (ARP) has consistently provided rehabilitation services to an average of 200 individuals annually and has successfully graduated over 300 individuals so far.
Our Adult Rehabilitation Program offers spiritual, emotional and social assistance to those who have lost the ability to cope with their addictions and provide for themselves. The Salvation Army's no-fee program in Chico provides housing, food, counseling, community and work therapy, as we work to combat the root causes and symptoms of prolonged alcohol and drug dependence.
Here in Chico, we focus on the following to help men and women combat addiction and prepare to reenter their communities whole and healthy again.
Through holistic work-therapy, group and individual counseling sessions, spiritual direction and life skills development, residents learn to abandon substance reliance.
Build Work and Social Skills
The physical and spiritual components of the program equip residents to provide for themselves and others as they set and maintain sustainable employment goals.
Regain Health and Stability
By developing a personal relationship with God as provided by Jesus Christ, many residents learn to depend on God for relief -- rather than turning to drugs or alcohol.
Many who have been rehabilitated are reunited with their families and are able to resume healthy daily routines. Kids get their parents back. People get their lives back.
