PROVEN ADULT REHABS AND CARING TEEN BOARDING SCHOOLSWe know facing life impacting behaviors and getting help can be challenging. That’s why we offer proven solutions with multiple facilities for men and women, and several year-round boarding schools for teen boys and girls.
OUR LOCATIONS FOR ADOLESCENT GIRLS
A warm and supportive environment welcomes adolescent girls, ages 13-17, with life-controlling problems. Our Christian boarding schools allow each participant to continue her education while facing the issues that prevent her from having a strong relationship with her family and will limit her ability to have a productive and healthy future.
The 15-month structured program provides individual, group and family pastoral counseling, inspirational chapels, and robust recreational opportunities. Each element contributes to the transformation of once-troubled lives. New and positive character qualities are modeled and adopted. Community service projects allow participants to gain a sense of worth and significance. Most importantly, they will grow in faith as they realize the great love of God Who believes their lives have tremendous value.
The Teen Challenge program is designed to develop a sense of personal responsibility, self-discipline, godly character, a sense of right and wrong and self-respect. The final result is a graduate who is full of hope for her future.
OUR LOCATIONS FOR ADOLESCENT BOYS
Adolescent boys, ages 12-17, and their concerned families find a fresh start in their troubled relationships at Teen Challenge homes. The Christian boarding schools provide a structured environment that helps out-of-control youth discover significance and purpose for their lives, a foundation for a productive and healthy future.
On-site instruction in state-registered private schools, individual and family pastoral counseling, inspirational chapels, and robust recreational opportunities all contribute to the transformation of once-troubled teens as new and positive character qualities are adopted. Each participant realizes significance as he turns his focus from “self” to the service of others through the character-building curriculum built on Christian principles.
This program gives a once out-of-control teenager a second chance at attaining a bright future.

STORIES OF HOPE
I went from partying only on weekends to becoming a full-fledged addict to pain pills. As a teen, I started down a path of destruction and eventually hit rock bottom. After years of addiction, several failed attempts at getting my life back together, and feeling completely hopeless, I agreed to enter Teen Challenge.
My life has been drastically transformed. I don’t think the same, talk the same, or act the same, and the unhealthy relationship I had with my family has been restored. The Lord is really working in my life.
I started abusing drugs at age 15. By 24, my life was reckless and I was an intravenous drug addict looking for the fastest and furthest escape from a childhood filled with rage and abuse.
My desperate cry was answered when I walked through the doors of Teen Challenge after an 11-year addiction. Today, my past does not define me. God has turned my mess into a message of HOPE and I am holding firmly to His promise – that He makes all things new.
