Justice Catalyst Law and the Civil Rights Education and Enforcement Center filed a federal class action lawsuit alleging The Salvation Army’s discriminatory and outdated policy and practice denies services in its Adult Rehabilitation Centers (ARCs) to individuals who receive evidence based medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid-use disorder (OUD). The Salvation Army’s ARCs are a nationwide network of over 100 programs and services geared at individuals with substance use disorders, including OUD. The program receives thousands of participants in the “no-fee” program from court referrals, diversionary programs, prison, and probation, making it one of the largest rehabilitation providers in the country.
