Helping residents develop a spiritual life that provides inner-strength and a foundation for lasting recovery.
The Teen Challenge Program
Our purpose is to provide women with an effective and comprehensive Christian faith-based solution to life-controlling problems. By applying biblical principles, Teen Challenge® Women’s Ministries, endeavors to help people become mentally-sound, emotionally-balanced, socially-adjusted, physically-well, and spiritually-alive.
Our goal is to help residents establish chemical-free lifestyles in connection with issues they identify as life-controlling and to recognize that these skills and tools are transferable to future problems and challenges they will face.
This faith-based residential program assists individuals in recovering from drug and alcohol addiction and the life-controlling problems associated with it. In addition, residents work on overcoming rebellion and the self-destructive behaviors associated with their substance abuse and developing positive life skills. Residents participate in spiritual growth activities, individual advising, and choir.
Through our adult work-study program, residents have the opportunity to develop a strong work ethic while learning new skills and the importance of teamwork and a good attitude. Work study consists of tasks such as administrative tasks, kitchen clean-up, laundry, janitorial duties, simple maintenance projects and wood working. These activities help residents understand personal responsibility for their own living space and the importance of serving others.
Our center offers a 13 month residential program for adults designed to help women learn how to live drug-free lives. During their stay, they do not hold down outside jobs, as all of their attention is focused on the program. We challenge the residents to embrace the Christian faith. We see that when they do, their lives are transformed and they find true meaning and purpose.
Residents follow strict rules and discipline. All residents adhere to a daily schedule which includes chapel, Bible classes and work assignments on or near the grounds. For information on Teen Challenge’s ® curriculum CALL TOLL FREE 1-866-567-7101.
