Teen Challenge Southeast is the largest faith-based recovery network in the country, with 20 centers in 6 states, and 1,000 residential beds for at-risk adolescents and adults struggling with life-controlling addictions.
Plans are in place to increase capacity at the 88 bed Columbus Girls Academy and expand other regional centers, help to transform at-risk girls with behavioral problems into successful women of integrity.
Last year, over 1,500 teens attempted suicide in the Atlanta area alone. We plan to double residential capacity at the Boys Academy in Griffin, Georgia, giving hope to more young men before it’s too late.
Our 30-Day Wilderness Camp in the mountains of North Georgia provides a distraction-free environment to help at-risk adolescent boys overcome emotional and behavioral problems.
Our goal is to develop the leaders of tomorrow by encouraging graduates to participate in our “Emerging Leaders Program,” which offers peer coaching certification and other opportunities to have a career within the Teen Challenge community.
We’ve launched our first women’s 90-day treatment program with licensed clinical personnel that offers early intervention as a solution for women whose life situations may prohibit long-term residential care.
