The Teen Challenge programme provides a proven cure for life-controlling addictions, by helping men and women break free from drugs and alcohol abuse through applying the principles of the Bible.
Because residents have abused substances, many lack self-discipline and have developed negative views of themselves, authority and life in general. This affects their behaviours and ability to maintain relationships, employment or a tenancy.
We truly believe we can ‘offer freedom from addiction’ and it is our aim, through Christian principles and a disciplined supported housing environment, to empower individuals to escape addiction onto freedom, independent living and a life they can be proud of.
We have found that structure and routine are at the centre of a person’s self-worth and dignity, so have developed personal behavioural objectives and a daily schedule that produces real, lasting physical, emotional and spiritual benefits.
The course provides a balanced mixture of class-based studies, counselling sessions, personal reflection, work duties and recreation, helping students to become physically, emotionally and spiritually whole.
After completing the programme, graduates continue to receive support from Teen Challenge in career and further education opportunities, establishing homes and finance management.
