Salvation Army Closing Rehab Facility That Opened In 1950s


INJURING HIS MOTHER AND YOUNGER BROTHER. ANOTHER MAN WAS SHOT AS WELL AND HE WILL BE OKAY. WEBSTER FLED THE SCENE AND WAS ARRESTED SHORTLY AFTER. PEOPLE TRYING TO GET BACK ON THEIR FEET AFTER BATTLING ADDICTION WILL NEED MORE HELP. WE HAVE A REHAB FACILITY THAT WAS FREE AND IT IS CLOSING. IT WILL CLOSE ON SEPTEMBER 1. JAMIE IS AT ANOTHER FACILITY RIGHT NOW AND A LOT OF PEOPLE IN RECOVERY WILL HAVE TO FIND SOMEWHERE ELSE TO GO. DRUG ABSOLUTELY. THIS IS CALLED HARBOR LIFE. THIS ONE IS NOT CLOSING. THIS IS NOT THE SAME AS THE SIX MONTH FACILITY. THIS IS MORE OF A TRANSITIONAL FACILITY. PEOPLE COME HERE AFTER THEIR SIX MONTHS. WE MET ONE MAN TODAY WHO WENT THROUGH THE PROGRAM. HE SAID HE IS WORRIED THAT THE DOORS ARE CLOSING. HE IS GEARED OTHERS WON’T HAVE A CHANCE. ALCOHOL WAS MY CHOICE OF DRUG. IT HAS BEEN A THORN IN MY FLESH FOR YOU YEARS — 4 YEARS. HE’S SAID HE IS SOBER NOW. I HAD BEEN DRINKING 35 YEARS. HE HAD NOTHING WHEN HE ARRIVED IN DENVER 35 YEARS AGO. HE WAS BROKE AND COLD. THEY GAVE ME EVERYTHING I NEEDED. THE SAME FACILITY THAT HELPED HIM CAN’T AFFORD TO HELP OTHERS. THEY ARE NOT MAKING ANY MONEY. THEY DON’T HAVE CONSISTENT STAFF . EVERYTHING BECAME OVERWHELMING. THE FAMILY HAS BEEN WORKING WITH THE SALVATION ARMY FOR FOUR GENERATIONS. SHE IS THE LAST PERSON WHO WANTS TO SEE THIS PLACE CLOSE. ON SEPTEMBER 1, EVERYONE WILL BE PLACED IN OTHER REHAB FACILITIES. IN THE TIME TO COME, WE WILL BE ABLE TO REOPEN STRONGER AND BETTER. FOR THOSE ONCE IN CHARLIE’S SHOES GOT LIFE WITHOUT THIS PROGRAM IS DIFFICULT. WITHOUT THIS PROGRAM, WHAT WOULD’VE HAPPENED TO YOU? I WOULD BE IN THE STREETS. NOW HE HAS A LIFE. I HAVE MY GRANDKIDS. I HAVE A CAR. AND I WAS ABLE TO TAKE CARE OF MY FAMILY. THE STORES ASSOCIATED WITH THIS REHAB FACILITY WILL CLOSE ON AUGUST 1. THE REHAB CENTER WILL CLOSE ON SEPTEMBER 1.
