The Salvation Army of Coastal Alabama, Dauphin Way Lodge and Emergency Shelter

(Please note: While The Salvation Army reportedly does not discriminate against the LGBTQ community in their services, their beliefs are not LGBTQ affirming.)

Dauphin Way Lodge is a male substance abuse residential treatment facility. We provide clients with a medium intensity level of care (also offer lower levels of care) which helps clients learn how to manage their addiction to illicit and mood altering substances while also helping them to reintegrate back into society. They’ll attend 30 hours of treatment (treatment hours vary) of individual and group sessions while also going to outside meetings such as AA, NA, CMA and such. Our programs are individualized, meaning, it make take someone 90 days in our highest level of care whereas it may take another 100 or more. Once they complete the highest level of care(varies by what they are assessed for before entering treatment) they have the option to move to a lower level of care in which the focus is on maintaining sobriety, finding a job and housing. They still have group and individual sessions they still must attend. We do have a shelter that the homeless can stay in overnight but they must leave by morning unless they are trying to get into one of our treatment programs but even then, they would have to wait and come back each night for a bed.
