TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

While residing in a clean, supportive living environment, men take part in daily work therapy (typically in the thrift store) and attend group and individual counseling sessions. As the program is faith-based, an emphasis is placed on developing “a personal relationship with God as provided by Jesus Christ.”
There is currently no information provided by the Wilkes-Barre ARC regarding its treatment staff.

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

In sum, they found the ARC a “Very compassionate” faith-based program that “doesnot ‘baby’ the resident.”
As part of the rehabilitative program, men work in the thrift store. According to the program’s webpage, “all earned income” goes back to help run the program.
