Our licensed program provides a place for families to get help for their addicted or troubled boy when all else has failed. We provide a structured but adventure-filled environment, a loving Christian atmosphere, and expert intervention for behavioral issues and addictions. By God’s grace, we have seen even the most oppositional and troubled boys transform their lives and become young men of character and integrity. We are the oldest Teen Challenge adolescent program in the country, established in 1973.

We have an amazing, dedicated team of Christian professionals on staff.  Our staff outnumber the students. You won’t find a better staffed program anywhere else, and everyone here considers their work a life calling, not just a job.

They check everything we do therapeutically and hold us to the highest of standards.

What distinguishes a CARF accredited organization?

Organizations that have achieved accreditation demonstrate:

  • A higher degree of internal quality.
  • Greater involvement of persons served in their services.
  • Increased cohesion among staff members at all levels within the organization.
  • Enhanced status of the surveyed services within the community.

When your organization is accredited, the public is assured that you are committed to continually improving the quality of your services and your organization’s focus is on service outcomes and customer feedback and satisfaction.

Also, our addiction treatment side is now accredited through LegitScript.  It is an ongoing checking service used by the major search engines to make sure that the addiction treatment services we offer are legitimate.
