Drug rehabilitation doesn’t happen by accident. It requires a dedicated team, powerful principles, and a proven process built upon one foundation, Jesus.
We practice seven core values that facilitate rehabilitation and life transformation - one person at a time:
Living and working with excellence
Embracing hope, love, and reconciliation
Working together and supporting one another
Seeing beyond the present
Faithfully managing God’s call and resources
Believing God for the impossible
Dedicating ourselves to the success of others
"We humans can work hard for each other, and we should and we must work. But it is God, and only God, who heals."
- David Wilkerson, Teen Challenge Founder
We believe faith in God is primary to a transformed life. It changes perspective, alters behavior, and instills positive values allowing the entire person to heal. If an addict wishes to find permanent freedom from the bondage of addiction, our results show he or she needs to first seek a personal relationship with Jesus.
This central spiritual dynamic is the foundation upon which all aspects of the Teen Challenge programs are built. It is why faith-based counseling is at the heart of what we do. It is why we hold Bible studies, plant churches, and lead community-wide outreaches. And it is the primary reason Teen Challenge graduates are living a life free from addiction.
