Salvation Army Of NWA Expands Rehabilitation Center

NWA Daily

The Salvation Army of Northwest Arkansas has been helping men overcome drug addiction since 1985, and their good work will continue thanks to the expansion of the Fayetteville rehabilitation facility.

  • More the merrier: The expansion creates room for 26 men to participate in the free 6-month program at a time, compared to the previous cap of 16.
  • First step: The program takes referrals from local drug courts, but any man needing help overcoming addiction is welcome to walk in and begin their recovery journey.
