Our Mission

      To provide youth, men and women with an effective and comprehensive solution to life-controlling problems, such as substance abuse, in order that they become productive members of society. The goal of Teen Challenge Georgia is to help people become mentally sound, physically well, emotionally balanced, socially adjusted & spiritually alive.

How do we help 

       We offer a 12 month, 24 hour staffed residential drug-free therapeutic community for men wanting to overcome tobacco, alcohol, drug and gambling addictions. We care for their social, emotional, physical and spiritual needs by offering:

1. Personal and group studies on developing their character
2. Personal counselling
3. English language courses with native speakers
4. Living skills training
5. Computer training
6. Vocational training, sport and recreational activities  



Drug rehabilitation doesn’t happen by accident. It requires a dedicated team, powerful principals, and a proven process built upon one foundation, Jesus.

We practice seven core values that facilitate rehabilitation and life transformation - one person at a time:

Living and working with excellence

Embracing hope, love, and reconciliation

Working together and supporting one another

Seeing beyond the present

Faithfully managing God’s call and resources

Believing God for the impossible

Dedicating ourselves to the success of others
