Teen Challenge is the faith-based SOLUTION for the drug epidemic. The scope of Teen Challenge has grown over the years, and now serves adults as well as teenagers. There are over 200 Teen Challenge campuses in the United States, and over 1000 centers worldwide in over 80 countries, which provide Christian recovery services to individuals of every age and social background. Typically, these services are long-term residential recovery centers which provide a life-encompassing environment through which the participant is able to change their lifestyle and develop a plan for a future free from addiction. Another core tenet of Teen Challenge is drug abuse prevention, which educates young adults on the dangers and reality of drug abuse in our society.
Teen Challenge came to Texas in 1968, with the opening of the San Antonio campus, then called the Westwood Center. Teen Challenge of Texas now operates six campuses in Texas in the San Antonio, Houston, and Fort Worth areas.
