My job as an attorney is to help people. I have made that the core my profession since day one. I try to be charitable throughout the entire year, but like most people I emphasize charitable giving more during the holiday season. In that spirit I wanted to mention the outstanding work of Romulus ARC – Women’s Adult Rehabilitation Center in Romulus. It is the first 180-day residential rehabilitation program in Southeast Michigan for women struggling with substance abuse.
The center, which treats people free of cost, receives funding from seven Salvation Army retail stores in Wayne County. This includes the location in the Tel-Joy Shopping Center in Dearborn Heights. The center also accepts direct donations.
The guiding principles of the program are those of friendship, encouragement, and spiritual motivation. The end goal is for individuals who enter the program to come out as contributing members of society.
I’d also like to recognize the efforts of Merle and Cheryl Miller, Salvation Army Romulus ARC Advisory Council members, who have overseen the development of this project.
The Romulus ARC – Women’s Adult Rehabilitation Center is located at 5931 Middlebelt Road in Romulus. The facility is near Middlebelt and Van Born Roads. The center can be reached by phone at 734-729-7842.
Admission to the program occurs Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Applicants must present either a current ID or driver’s license, both of which need to have been issued by the State of Michigan. They are also required to show a social security card.
Additional information on the center is available at the Salvation Army’s website.
