Our Purpose

We, at Adult & Teen Challenge of the Greater South, want you to know that a life-changing journey is just a decision away. If you are ready to get free from your life-controlling problems. If you are ready to learn a new way of life through a relationship with Jesus Christ…

If You Are Ready To Do Whatever It Takes,

then we believe that our program of healing, joy, and restoration is for YOU. Whether you are looking for help for yourself, a family member, or a friend, our prayer is that you will pick up the phone and call to find out more about us. Since our establishment we have seen countless men and women liberated from life-controlling issues, and today they are leading productive, rather than destructive lives. Remember, there is hope. With God, ALL things are possible. Matthew 19:26

The Adult & Teen Challenge of the Greater South Centers are a place of healing, joy and restoration for men and women who are 17 and older. The homes are a refuge for the lost and the suffering. A visitor cannot help but feel a spirit of love and peace in our centers.

Alcohol and drug addiction is often merely symptomatic of underlying issues, whether those involve self-destructive choices or emotional disturbances such as painful memories, trauma or abuse. Our goal is to help men and women address that brokenness in a safe and structured environment that is based solely on the Word of God. Belief in Jesus Christ and developing a biblical self-image is the basis of the 9 month residential program. Our Christian advisers will work with you to incorporate your personal relationship with Jesus Christ into every aspect of your life. ATC Greater South uses Christian-based principles to help return hope to the lost and the suffering.

When you make the decision to turn away from drugs and alcohol and rededicate your life to Jesus Christ, the past is already forgiven and you are free to realize God’s calling on your life. As you begin to walk in faith through Jesus Christ, forgiveness is a natural by-product. Forgiveness of yourself and others is a vital component of overcoming the past and rebuilding a new life in Christ. At ATC Greater South, we’ll help guide you on every part of your journey until that beautiful day when you finally realize you were never alone. God has been with you every step of the way.

Drug and Alcohol addiction is at an all-time high in the United States. According to SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) there are at least 23 million people who have used illicit drugs in the past thirty days. For us to understand the impact on society– the population of Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Alaska, Wyoming, and the Dakotas is less than 23 million. Every person who uses illicit drugs directly affects a minimum of five other people. We have an epidemic in America!

Since 1958, Adult & Teen Challenge® International USA centers have been recognized nationally as a provider of recovery services for those who desire to transform their lifestyle and develop a new life free from the devastation of drug and alcohol abuse.

Since its beginning, Adult & Teen Challenge® centers have founded their programs on the teachings of Jesus Christ. These Biblical truths have physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually unchained the lives of thousands of addicts. Instead of ‘dope’ pushers, Adult & Teen Challenge® ministries are serving as ‘hope’ pushers. As their personal testimony, Adult & Teen Challenge® students often claim the scripture, “I have plans to give you a hope and a future”. (Jeremiah 29:11, NIV)

There is nothing more satisfying than investing time and resources into lives of hurting individuals. America needs to know there is a new life waiting for them through the life-changing power of Jesus. Adult and Teen Challenge of the Greater South is in the business of providing a hope and a future for families as well as individuals who desire a positive and optimistic transformation in their lives.
