Are you seeking a lasting solution for yourself or a loved one, who’s life has been ravaged by addiction or alcoholism? Adult & Teen Challenge drug and alcohol addiction recovery centers in Texas enroll adult men and women without charge. We work with the whole person, solving the underlying initial causes of addiction, getting these addictive substances out of the individual’s system and giving enough time, encouragement and training to make sure the addiction does not return. We are a residential educational program designed to reverse the destruction that addictions reap on relationships, careers and futures. We set the individual on a new course in life with all new motivations and renewed respect, peace and care for others.”
Through our proven solutions for life-controlling addictions, we help former addicts become productive members of society. Mentally sound, emotionally balanced, physically well, and spiritually alive. In a safe, encouraging, drug-free environment, our staff (who are mostly former addicts themselves) work with each individual daily, showing them the way toward a more fulfilling life based on God’s forgiveness, love and purpose. Our model has proven to be highly effective for all addictions, bringing about maturity, honesty, humility, care, and life change. Medical detox may be required before enrolling.
Adult & Teen Challenge was founded in 1958 by Pastor David Wilkerson who began ministering to drug addicts and gang members on the streets of New York. A recovery home was started shortly thereafter. Adult & Teen Challenge came to Texas in 1968. There are now close to 200 centers in the United States, and over 1000 centers worldwide in over 90 different countries.
Adult & Teen Challenge is a residential recovery and discipleship program. Unlike a conventional rehab, this recovery program encompasses every aspect of life, guiding people to become mentally sound, emotionally balanced, socially adjusted, and physically well. It offers non-medical recovery methods such as moral guidance, counseling, and biblical principles to life-controlling problems.
We commit to working with individuals in our program for a full year, not a few weeks or months. Our success in recovery has made us the largest network of addiction recovery centers in the world. We are nonprofit and receive support from the community. If the life and career of a loved one is being destroyed by addiction or alcoholism, don’t look for a quick solution — look for one that will last!
Enrollment in our addiction and alcoholism centers for adults is so affordable because it is supported by the generous gifts in the community. Recovery is faith-based and reinforced by a supportive peer community. Our residents are housed in a controlled environment where new positive habits are formed, mentored by others who have walked the same path to freedom.
* Aside from the $1,500 induction fee, tuition is not charged until the third phase of the program, after a student has gained employment.
