There are now 150 Teen Challenge centers in the United States, with approximately 3,000 residential beds in U.S. centers. The majority of these centers operate one-year, faith-based, residential programs. Including international – more... outreach, Teen Challenge International has 250 centers in more than 67 countries of the world. Teen Challenge is a nonprofit, tax-exempt, charitable, Christian organization.

Teen Challenge accepts people from teenagers to senior citizens into their programs.

Teen Challenge goals are to:
, provide community-based drug education, prevention and restoration programs,
, create a framework that challenges people to reach their fullest potential - spiritually - socially - educationally - occupationally,
, develop and nurture the transformation of restored individuals into useful, productive, law-abiding citizens who are committed to Christian faith, values and living.

Independent studies have shown the Teen Challenge program to consistently have an 86-percent success rate. In June, 1999, research done by Northwest University Illinois, found that 86-percent of those who complete the Teen Challenge program have remained drug free three years post graduation from the program.

President Ronald Reagan said about Teen Challenge: "I speak from more than 20 years of knowledge of the organization when I tell you Teen Challenge works. It's effective, it's literally changing the lives of young Americans from every walk of life. The work and dedication of Teen Challenge deserves the commendation of every citizen." – lessMore from ZoomInfo »
