Monthly Mission Spotlight: Adult & Teen Challenge

Adult & Teen Challenge

Adult & Teen Challenge of St. Louis is dedicated to a transformative 4-12 month residential program based on Christian principles to help restore broken lives of men and women overcome by addictions.

Their program is holistic – they are concerned with the body, mind, and spirit of those who come to them 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 – 35 and older. Most adults who arrive at their doors bring with them a tragic history of substance abuse or other life-controlling problems. At Adult & Teen Challenge of St. Louis, the journey to sobriety includes attention to the spiritual needs of those who seek their help.

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

Thanks to the generous contributions from caring individuals, churches, organizations and the business community, they are able to provide their residential services for a minimal one-time fee.

You can get involved by donating, volunteering or by praying for their staff and students.  For any information or questions, please go to atcstl.org to find out more information.
