Our Program

Adult & Teen Challenge of St. Louis is dedicated to a transformative 12 month residential program based on Christian principles to help restore broken lives of men and women overcome by addictions.

Our program is holistic – we are concerned with the body, mind, and spirit of those who come to us for help. Adult & Teen Challenge’s mission is to help individuals become mentally sound, emotionally balanced, socially adjusted, physically well, and spiritually alive and return to society as productive citizens.

Adult & Teen Challenge of St. Louis works extensively with young men and women, 18 years old and up. Most adults who arrive at our doors bring with them a tragic history of substance abuse or other life-controlling problems. At Adult & Teen Challenge of St. Louis, the journey towards sobriety includes attention to the spiritual needs of those who seek our help.

With a focus on the practical applications of Christian teachings, individuals not only learn how to change deeply entrenched, self-destructive behaviors, but also discover a new identity in Christ that makes these changes possible. Through Bible-based classes, individual study, personal mentoring, work therapy training and involvement in the Christian community, we facilitate the transition to conquer life-controlling problems.
