Our dream is to put hope within reach of every addict or at-risk youth by offering life transformation through our caring, Christ-centered programs.
Through our proven solutions for life-controlling addictions, our hope is that every Adult & Teen Challenge student will become a productive member of society. Mentally sound. Emotionally balanced. Physically well. Spiritually alive.
Adult & Teen Challenge is a faith-based solution for the drug epidemic. The scope of Adult & Teen Challenge has grown over the years, and now serves adults as well as teenagers. There are just under 200 Adult & Teen Challenge campuses in the United States, and over 1000 centers worldwide in close to 90 countries, which provide Christian recovery services to individuals of every age and social background. Typically, these services are long-term residential recovery centers which provide a life-encompassing environment through which the participant is able to change their lifestyle and develop a plan for a future free from addiction. Another core tenet of Adult & Teen Challenge is drug abuse prevention, which educates young adults on the dangers and reality of drug abuse in our society.
Adult & Teen Challenge came to Texas in 1968, with the opening of the San Antonio campus, then called the Westwood Center. Adult & Teen Challenge of Texas now operates six campuses in Texas in the San Antonio, Houston, and Fort Worth areas.
