Northern Division: Serving every county in Minnesota and North Dakota


Drugs, alcohol, pornography and other addictions have a strangling grip that is hard to break. Our rehabilitation programs can help you break free and reclaim the hope that was once lost. The circumstances of addiction are often unthinkable, but with counseling, patience, prayer and a limitless supply of God’s love, we offer a starting point on the path to freedom from addiction.

We have two rehabilitation programs for men – one at the Adult Rehabilitation Center and the other at Harbor Light Center. We serve men from all walks of life, from the chronically homeless to high-income professionals who “had it all” but lost everything to addiction. Although both these rehabilitation programs are offered in the Minneapolis, access is available to men in need from all over Minnesota and North Dakota.

Adult Rehabilitation Center (900 N. 4th St., Minneapolis)

This free long-term rehabilitation program can help up to 130 men at any given time, with graduation after six to 12 months. The men receive counseling and spiritual support every night. By day, they perform volunteer “work therapy” for 40 hours per week mostly distributing clothes, furniture and other donations made to Salvation Army Stores. This center is completely funded through sales at our Twin Cities stores.

The center is open to men throughout Minnesota and beyond and is one of 120 Salvation Army Rehabilitation Centers in the U.S. It has been operating in the Twin Cities for nearly 100 years. To learn more about the center or for enrollment information, call 612-332-5855.

Beacon at Harbor Light Center (1010 Currie Ave., Minneapolis)

Our chemical dependency program inside the Harbor Light Shelter serves about 60 men at any given time. Most are homeless, without family support and in need of an extensive, holistic approach to recovery. They start with three weeks of inpatient treatment based on the 12-step model of recovery. Then, they spend 75 days living at one of two halfway houses: one at Harbor Light, the other at a private home in the northern suburbs.

Beacon is a state-licensed program that stresses relapse prevention, finding and keeping a job, obtaining housing and developing a strong support system. To learn more about Beacon or for enrollment information, call 612-338-0113.

For women, The Salvation Army offers a host of emergency services. Once stabilized, you’ll be referred to a professional rehabilitation program to start on the path to recovery.
