Freedom From Addiction Starts Here
As parents watch the nightmare unfold when their teen becomes self-destructive, they wonder how they will ever reconnect with the son or daughter that they fear they are losing. It is the most helpless, hopeless feeling in the world, and it can overwhelm an entire family with unimaginable pain, chaos, and despair. Teen Challenge’s adolescent programs understand this heartache and can step in with age-appropriate care, an opportunity to continue pursuing an education, and Christian mentoring that can help young people find their way back to who they were before they got lost in life-controlling problems. Life-controlling problems of teens are not limited to drugs or alcohol. Many of them struggle with the debris of divorce, have experienced traumas like sexual assault or violence, bullying, peer pressure, and awkwardness that accompanies the challenges of growing up. Through the structure, accountability, and camaraderie set in a Christian environment, Teen Challenge offers adolescents and their families constructive time and space to regroup and rediscover life, health, and well-being.
