ABOUT THE SALVATION ARMY COASTAL ALABAMA
The Salvation Army of Coastal Army offers a full range of support services, including emergency shelters, job training and placement, social services, and work therapy programs for men. At its Mobile County Corps Community Center, located at 3200 Pleasant Valley Road in Mobile, Ala., eligible individuals may receive food and financial assistance with their rent and utilities.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
To be eligible for these services, the Salvation Army Mobile County Corps Community Center requests that individuals bring with them identification, proof of income (if applicable), and proof of address. Food and financial assistance is available on Tuesdays, between 2 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.
At its nearby location, the Salvation Army runs Dauphin Lodge, a state-certified addiction treatment facility that’s directed by a team of master’s level counselors. Dauphin Lodge offers two care options: a six-month residential program and an intensive outpatient program (IOP) with day and evening sessions.
Additional offerings include a Christian-based Work Therapy Rehabilitative Program (CSRC) and Project Able, a job placement and mentoring program for men who are homeless and unemployed. Both programs provide men with their basic housing needs, daily meals, counseling, and transportation.
While the nearby Dauphin Lodge is run by master’s-level counselors, there is currently no information provided by the organization on this exact location.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
In their Best-rehabs.com survey, an anonymous individual awarded the Salvation Army of Coastal Alabama either two- or our-star ratings; two stars for the holistic and counseling options, the co-occurring treatment, and the policies concerning connectivity outside the facility, and four stars for the accommodations and meals, family participation, staff’s level of training and experience, and administrative/discharge procedures. “Good the cost, food is good,” the anonymous reviewer wrote.
Services and programs are funded by proceeds generated by the organization’s local family thrift stores and through a grant from the Department of Housing and Urban Development.
