We’re so glad that you’re considering Adult & Teen Challenge of Wisconsin to begin your journey to recovery from drug or alcohol addiction.
We would like you to know that Teen Challenge is one of the most successful faith-based rehab support programs in the world. We are serious about Christ-based recovery because it has proven to be the most successful care available for overcoming addiction and beginning a new life.
We will be with you every step of the way at Adult & Teen Challenge. We won’t waste time convincing you to quit – you already know you need to, or you wouldn’t be here. There have likely been times in your life when you wanted things to be different but were unable to break the cycles of addiction.
We’re here to tell you change is possible, and we’re determined to help you get your life back. No one can lead your life but you. Our drug and alcohol recovery programs will help you become the responsible leader God intends you to be.
That being said, entering the Adult & Teen Challenge recovery program can be difficult. When drugs and alcohol wear off, and you find yourself away from all that’s familiar, you may experience a variety of emotions. Feelings of anger, pain, guilt, homesickness, or a sense of being trapped can creep in on you.
As badly as you know you need to begin this journey, your “internal war” can be your most difficult hurdle. Experience tells us that once you overcome this initial struggle, you will adjust to the program.
Keep fighting. Don’t give up. Your negative experiences do not need to dictate your future.
My name is Natalie and I’m 20 years old. I am proud to say I have found God, and there is no going back for me. Over one year ago I came into the program, a completely broken and lost soul. I had tried everything that the world had to offer me, explored every religion, but I was still left empty. I was facing prison time.
My name is Grace and I am 25 years old. I was born and raised in the south side of Chicago. My parents got divorced when I was 12 years old and it really affected me. I was very upset and sad that I had to be in the middle of my parent’s separation. As I got older I continued to carry this anger and darkness that followed me.
