For over 60 years, Adult & Teen Challenge USA has operated on a holistic 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. Our vision is to see all people freed from addiction through the power of Jesus Christ!


A restored relationship with God can transform those who suffer from addiction into vibrant, free, and sober followers of the Lord.

We base the curriculum and community of our addiction recovery centers on God’s Word—the Bible. Our practical Bible-based courses help the transition from alcoholism and substance abuse to a life of freedom in Christ. We offer a chance to start over, become a new person, live a godly life, and find freedom through a restored purpose and an eternal hope. This is done through classes, individual study, personal mentoring, work ethic training, and involvement in the Christian community.


There are over 200 Adult & Teen Challenge USA residential programs throughout the United States. All offer a variety of services that provide help for people struggling with drugs, alcohol, and other life controlling issues. Admission requirements, fees, and tuition costs vary from program to program. As a 501(3)(c), we are dedicated to providing cost-effective programs. However, there are many costs involved in providing training, lodging, meals, supervision. These expenses require the generous support of our friends, faith communities, and society.
