With a focus on the practical applications of Christian teachings, teens and adults not only learn how to change deeply entrenched, self-destructive behavior, but to discover a new identity in Christ that makes these changes possible. Those who come to Teen Challenge receive a holistic approach to recovery from life controlling problems and acquire a new value system that honors family, takes responsibility for community, cultivates a positive work ethic and helps them become productive, healthy members of society.
Teen Challenge was launched in 1985 by Pastor David Wilkerson. Now, with over 240 centers nationwide and a U.S. government recognized cure rate of 86%, Teen Challenge relies on local community support to deliver its "Faith-based solution to the drug epidemic."
