Submitted by on December 31, 2008 – No Comment

In San Diego there’s a Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center (we call them ARCs) which serves people who’ve lost their way because of drug and /or alcohol dependency. There are dozens of these no-cost centers around the US that are supported by the revenue generated at our Thrift Stores.

Tonight, a man named Joe will not only celebrate a new year, he’ll ring in a new life free of a crippling addiction to alcohol.  Like a lot of men and women treated at our ARCs, he began drinking to celebrate the good in his life and numb the bad, until the alcohol ruined everything he had.

Now he has a new way – and a new reason – to celebrate. Click on this link to read more of his story.  Joe, congratulations on your graduation from The Salvation Army San Diego Adult Rehabilitation Center. And, Happy New Year!
