HOW TO GET HELP

HOW DO I KNOW THAT YOU WILL BE ABLE TO HELP ME OVERCOME MY ADDICTIONS?

Overcoming an addiction is not easy. It won’t happen overnight. But our trained staff are here to help you, our interns are here to mentor you and your fellow students are here to support you. You owe it to yourself to take the steps necessary to find total freedom from your addiction. After all, Teen Challenge has been operating drug and alcohol treatment centres for well over 50 years, all over the world.

WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO TO BEGIN THE PROCESS?

Fill out an online application or print it. Once completed, fax or mail it to the Centre of your choice. Or simply call us, at 1.877.343.1022

WHEN IS MY INTERVIEW?

When your application is received, you will be contacted by telephone or email within 48 hours to set up an interview appointment.

DO I HAVE TO COME TO THE CENTRE FOR MY INTERVIEW?

The best option is to be in person. However, a phone interview can be arranged. The interview may take over an hour.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

The application fee is $100 either paid online at the time of applying or at the assessment interview. If approved for intake, an entry fee of $1000 is payable upon admission. There are no additional costs. Your room, board and program costs are covered by private donors and sponsors.

IF APPROVED FOR ADMISSION, HOW LONG IS THE WAITING LIST TO GET IN?

Admission can be in a few days, if beds are available. Wait times can be as long as several months. If you are open to entry to another centre that has an open bed, we can discuss entry to another Teen Challenge Centre.

HOW LONG IS YOUR PROGRAM?

You must be willing to commit to a full year.

WHAT IS A TYPICAL DAY IN THE PROGRAM?

Teen Challenge is a highly scheduled and regimented program. A typical day will begin with personal devotional time, and include coaching sessions, academic classes, and work detail. 3 meals a day are provided, and the day ends with some free time, recreational activities, life skill classes, or study time, and will end with dorm prayer.

HOW DO I GET HELP WITH MY ADDICTION?

You will be encouraged to develop a spiritual life and relationship with God, through the discovery and study of biblical principles, and their application.
