Adult & Teen Challenge works on a Christ-centered model of drug and alcohol recovery. This means that we are concerned with the body, mind, and spirit of those who come to our addiction recovery centers.

We endeavor to help people become mentally sound, emotionally balanced, socially adjusted, physically well, and spiritually alive.  We are confident that a restored relationship with God, through Jesus Christ, can transform those who suffer from addiction into vibrant, free, and sober followers of the Lord.
