  • This facility is the real deal. It is focused on changing lives through the power of Jesus Christ. I personally have experience with this facility in Stone Mountain Georgia. It has been and truly is an answer to prayer. The staff at this facility are truly 100% committed the Jesus Christ and to the students going through this program.
    Run down facility with a focus on work production not treatment. ...This is a Christian based program with very little teachings about God and treatment. My son did walk away from the facility with a better sense of responsibility, he learned that through developing a better work ethic, but he was no further along in his addiction recovery. I did end up ultimately filing an international complaint against this particular Teen Challenge facility. Please know though that I believe in the philosophy of Teen Challenge when run properly. It is my belief that the Dublin, GA facility was an rare instance and that most facilities are more about treatment/ healing than work production. With many centers throughout the nation in operation, finding an effective one shouldn't be that hard. My advice, interview them extensively, ask a lot about their daily schedule, their recreation options, work expectations and any other pertinent information. Good Luck to you and yours.
