About Teen Challenge

Mission Statement: To provide yourh, adults andfamilies with an effective and comprehensive Christian faith-based solution TO life-controlling drug and alcohol problems in order to become productive members of society. By applying biblical principles, Teen Challenge endeavors to help people become mentally-sound, emotionally-balanced, socially-adjusted, physically-well, and spiritually-alive.

Spiritually: Teen Challenge knows that the student’s symptoms are indicative of deeper problems and conflicts; we understand that a new life in Christ will give them the power and ability to overcome these problems and live a more productive life.

Emotionally: The healing of past abuses is necessary.  Bible studies enhance mental growth and serve as a foundation for creating new lives.

Physically: We care for the physical needs of the students. These needs-a drug-free environment, food, recreation, etc-are key factors to the student’s success in the program.

Socially: Students learn to work through relationship problems with their peers and with their fami lies at home. They will learn to apply the character qualities they learn in the classroom to their everyday lives.

• Educationally: Teen Challenge has developed a curriculum specifically designed to teach students about God and help them develop the skills required for them to become successful Christians.   Adolescent centers provide secondary education, while some adult centers offer GED programs.
