For more than 50 years Teen Challenge has been providing one of the largest and most successful faith-based, residential drug and alcohol recovery programs in America for individuals of all ages.
The Teen Challenge model is summed up as: "It's not just drugs or alcohol; it's moral training. [The Gospel of] Mark, chapter seven says, 'It's not what enters a man that makes him unclean, it's what comes out that destroys him; it's what's in a person's heart that is the problem.' We don't just talk about drugs and alcohol. We talk about character."
The Teen Challenge approach is built on the foundation that a personal relationship with Jesus Christ is essential for long term success. Founded on this, Teen challenge attends to the needs of the whole person, not merely the drug addiction problem.
