Ive been working on disasters with the Salvation Army now for 8 years. I kept on hearing this term “ARC…ARC” but I never really stopped to ask what it was about until I was in Puerto Rico, where Captain Alex Valesquez sat down and told me what they were all about, and he should know, he runs one of the bigger ARCs in the US. What he told me absolutely blew my mind.


With one of the highest efficacy rates I have ever heard of for an addition rehab program, what is further mind boggling is that there are no financial costs tied to those enrolling in the program. All they have to do is answer 6 questions.


Im sure many of you out there listening know someone who is struggling with different kinds of addictions, be it drugs, alcohol or the like. I felt so inspired about what Alex does that I felt compelled to share it! What an incredible service to so many without hope, many whom I have personally witnessed completely turning their lives around to becoming incredible men! That is today’s topic on The Maven Nation!


PS- I know the audio is a little rough, but it was the best we could do!
