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.
During this last year the Lord has helped me immensely. I am rebuilding my life in Christ. I graduated last month and will be entering Brooklyn Teen Challenge School of Ministry in October. Thank you for supporting Teen Challenge Wisconsin! Your support helps those struggling with addiction find freedom.
I was tired of getting high. I wanted to stop but didn’t know how. I decided to go to the Mental Health Complex because I knew it was a safe place where I could get help. There, a priest told me that Jesus was the only one that could help me. He told me about Teen Challenge.
