Welcome to
Louisiana Teen Challenge!

Donation Box LocationsWe're glad you're visiting our site. Here you will find information and resources to help you or your loved one find the freedom in Christ that we all need. Louisiana Teen Challenge provides youth, adults and families with an effective and comprehensive Christian faith-based solution to life-controlling drug and alcohol problems so that they may 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. Through committed staff and effective programs, Teen Challenge seeks to produce graduates who function responsibly and productively in society, and who have healthy relationships in the work place, family, church and community.

Teen Challenge has been in Louisiana for over 30 years. The Greater New Orleans Teen Challenge was established in 1987 and began operating as the Induction Center for Men in the state of Louisiana. The induction duration of the program is a 4 month residential phase after which students are transferred to our Training Center. In January 2002, Louisiana Teen Challenge expanded its Induction Center and Administrative Office and opened the Mt. Grace Training Center in Dodson, Louisiana. Here at the Training Center students complete the remaining 8 months, making the length of the residential program 12 months. In March 2006 Louisiana Teen Challenge was able to expand once again, opening a second Induction Center in Ruston, LA. Most recently, Louisiana Teen Challenge added a 12-month, residential Women's Center in Winnfield, LA that opened in May, 2007.

There is no required monthly cost to the students. Although a few of our students' families are able to contribute financially on a monthly basis, many cannot. We greatly rely on the help of concerned individuals, churches, businesses, and civic organizations. Teen Challenge does not receive any type of local, state or federal government funding.
