Speaker: Rotarian and Salvation Army Officer Van Young
Introduced By: Dudley Drake
Van started by talking about the history of Salvation Army. All the officers of the Salvation Army are ordained ministers. Salvation Army has three components. Work Therapy, Counseling/Education and Spiritual Awareness. Work Therapy includes, getup, cleanup, show up and do an honest day of work. Counseling and Education includes reading of the books that are required for people in the program. Through Counseling they help regaining social skills and regain health. Spiritual Awareness is a way to help people with addiction. There is a 6 Months Residential Program for men to combat addiction. The program is free. The success rate is 25 to 30 %. Due to COVID-19, anyone being admitted in the program had to do a 14 day quarantine.
A 22 year young man gave a testimony about his experiences with the rehab program. He loved playing baseball and was hoping to make a carrier out of it. He unfortunately had an injury and could not play baseball anymore. Due to depression and wrong choices he kept going in downward spiral. During this time he had 2 kids. He started over using pain pills. He went in to rehab program and it did not work. He started drinking and then decided he has to turn his life around. He started the Rehabilitation program at the Salvation Army. By this time he was an alcoholic. The program helped him stop drinking and gave him a positive perspective on life. This made him reevaluate his life and his relationships with others and also helped gather himself. He has been in the program for 6 months and feels he is ready to be responsible.
Van also said that at the Salvation Army they were following all COVID-19 protocols. There had been several months of no income. They are hoping to keep this important program going and are hoping they don’t lose this program.
