North Central Indiana Teen Challenge is a 12-18 month faith-based discipleship program for men who are 18 years and older.  Each day students participate in devotions, Bible and life-skills classes, work duties and a church-related event.  Throughout a student's stay, he is educated on morally upright behavior and learns to deal with situations he faces and the emotions that come with it, without running to substances as an escape.  They will be partnered with a mentor who has been through addiction and can help them one on one with their growth.  Our goal is to put hope within reach of every addict by offering life transformation through our Christ-centered program.  Through our proven solutions for life-controlling issues, our mission is to see every Teen Challenge student become a productive member of society, mentally sound, emotionally balanced, physically well and spiritually alive.  

Joe's Story

What is Teen Challenge

Teen Challenge is an international ministry serving adults and teens whose lives have been affected by drugs and alcohol.  Christ-centered programs all over the world offer hope and help to thousands each month. Teen Challenge‚Äôs residential centers focus on bringing people out of addiction through a year-long program that emphasizes discipleship and freedom through Jesus Christ.  

Teen Challenge is a leader in recovery and has expanded services offered to include: non-residential, community-based programs called LifeLine, training for inmates in state and federal prisons, additional mothers with children centers, expanded re-entry training, out-patient counseling and violence in the work place prevention training. Teen Challenge also works closely with government offcials to offer recovery assistance in lieu of incarceration.  Stay Sharp Programs are available for middle and high school students and focuses on abstinence from drugs, violence, alcohol and premarital sex.

We at Teen Challenge, are confident that a restoried relationship with God, through Jesus Christ, can transform those who suffer from addiction.  We base the curriculum and community of our addiction recovery on God's Word, the Bible.

We offer practical, appropriate and accessible Bible-based courses to facilitate the transition from alcoholism and substance abuse to a life of freedom in Christ.  At Teen Challenge, we offer a chance to start over, become a new person, learn how to live a godly life and find freedom through a restored purpose and an eternal hope.  We do this through classes, individual study, personal mentoring, prayer, work-ethics training and involvement in a Christian community.
