Teen Challenge is a residential, non-profit, Faith-based organization that assists people with life-controlling problems such as alcohol or drug abuse. The Midland, Texas based facility is for men and women 18 years of age and above. The students live at our main campus, located approximately 5 miles south of the city, for a minimum of 9 months, where they will participate in three livels of instruction---Foundations, Basics, and Advanced.
The Foundation phase helps individuals adjust to our faith-based program, and to acknowledge voluntarily, a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. The Basic phase gives individuals specific instruction on life skills, problem-solving, coping skills, and interacting with others. The Advanced phase concentrates on three important areas: Family, Leadership, and Goal setting. Upon successful completion of the first three levels, the student will then move into the final phase of the program, which is the Re-entry home located on campus. They will spend 4 to 6 months there, where they will be required to attend a home church and get involved. At this level, other requirements would include: maintaining employment, establishing a budget, participating in outreaches, and showing evidence of continued spiritual growth. All of this is aimed at reaching the goal of helping the person get back into society as a productive member of the community. The average length of our program is 13 to 15 months, however, some have taken more than 18 months to complete, depending on the individual's needs. We accept donations to help with the daily expenses. Should you have any questions, or for more information on how to get a loved one into the program, please do not hesitate to call us at our main number: (432) 687-0348 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
