DULT & TEEN CHALLENGE We exist to be a catalyst for 180-degree life change in the life of the addict.


INCE 1974, ADULT & TEEN CHALLENGE of the Midlands has been restoring hope to those struggling with drug and alcohol addiction.

Adult & Teen Challenge of the Midlands offers a long-term, 12-month, faith-based program for adults 18 and older. The program is designed to assist individuals in freedom from drugs and alcohol and the life-destructive behaviors that accompany it. We also support the spouses and families of those enrolled in the program through our family ministry.
