Teen Challenge UK
Teen Challenge UK is a registered charity and operates nationally to help young people who have developed life controlling problems, especially drug and alcohol addictions, and also to offer preventative help to those who may be in danger of doing so.
Teen Challenge UK started in the late Seventies and now works in fifteen locations in England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland. Teen Challenge London and Teen Challenge Strathclyde grew out of Teen Challenge UK and are now affiliated works.
Teen Challenge UK is a Christian faith based organisation.
What do we do? We tackle one of the greatest social problems and challenges facing our Nation today and we believe that Teen Challenge UK has a positive answer to the present drug epidemic in our country. Since our first residential centre opened in 1984 thousands of young people with serious addictions, averaging at least ten years per person, have been through our programmes and a large majority of them have gone on to live successful and drug free lives.
Why do we do it? We believe that everybody deserves another chance. The ministry is built on and driven by Christian values and beliefs which clearly show how precious and loved each human being is. Teen Challenge seeks to take that message to young people whose lives are messed up, who have lost all sense of self worth, self esteem and often the will to live. We believe everbody deserves the opportunity to live in freedom, becoming everything they were created to be.
The Goal of Teen Challenge Help people become mentally sound, physically well, emotionally balanced, socially adjusted & spiritually alive.
