Program

The Southeast Michigan Adult Rehabilitation Center consists of 2 separate campuses; the Detroit Men's Campus located at 1627 W. Fort St, Detroit, MI 48216 and the Romulus Women's Campus located at 5931 Middlebelt Rd., Romulus, MI 48174. Both can be reached by calling 313-965-7760.

Our 180 day residential program is free to all men and women who are dealing with addiction. Private insurance is not required to enter our program. Our Christian based program is designed to not only deal with the addiction, but also the whole person - body mind and spirit through individual and group counseling, chemical dependency education, relapse prevention education, bible study, G.E.D. courses, career counseling and continued contact after successful completion.

We believe that successful addiction rehabilitation requires an abstinence-based, 12 Step model recovery program that utilizes a holistic approach. In an attempt to maintain a drug free environment, all Beneficiaries are required to submit to an alcohol breathalyzer test upon entry to the building. Additional, drug testing is a requirement for Beneficiaries on a random basis.
As a prerequisite for employment, staff can also be asked to submit to drug and alcohol testing on a random basis. The sober integrity of the building is a high priority for the administration of this program.

Our facilities offer beautiful gymnasiums, basketball courts, exercise equipment, spacious cafeterias, laundry facilities, living areas, television rooms, reading libraries, game rooms and Chapel.

Admission to the ARC must be done in person and is available Monday thru Friday 8am-9pm. Applicants must possess a valid Michigan Identification card, Social Security card and must be 18+ years of age.

History

The Salvation Army began its work in Detroit in 1883. Records from the Army’s historical archives show the Adult Rehabilitation Center began here with just 4 wagons in 1895. Spurred on by tremendous need and generosity of the community, the A.R.C. originally called the Men's Social Service Center grew rapidly in its first few decades of operation. By the 1950’s the center was a huge enterprise, serving hundreds of men each year from a location at 1220 West Lafayette Boulevard. Among the programs offered in the center included shoe repair, mattress production, appliance reconditioning and material recycling.

The A.R.C. moved to its present location in 1972 after acquiring and renovating the former Coe Terminal Warehouse at 1627 W. Fort Street. In 2003, the Detroit Center and Pontiac Center merged to create the Southeast Michigan Adult Rehabilitation Center with a goal of even greater service to the community.  In 2004, The Salvation Army made the commitment to keep the A.R.C. in Detroit by undertaking a $24 million building transformation aimed at providing new facilities, better programs, and a better overall atmosphere to aid the healing process. Completed in January 2007, the 355,000 square foot facility accommodates 300 beneficiaries and incorporates state-of-the-art technology for food service, donation process, store operations, work training and more.

In 2009, the SEMI ARC started steps to provide a 50 bed Woman's Program originally planned to be in Detroit near the SEMI ARC. In 2011, The Romulus Men's ARC was closed; the gentlemen that wished to continue in their recovery entered the SEMI ARC. After a brief period, the center was reopened on August 1st, 2011 as the Romulus Women's Campus of The Southeast Michigan Adult Rehabilitation Center.
