Teen Challenge Works!
It’s a proven fact. Teen Challenge achieves a success rate of 86%, compared to government and secular programs that may reach 5-10%. Add to that the fact that three out of four Teen Challenge students have had drug treatment elsewhere before coming to us – that makes our 86% even more incredible!
Teen Challenge Costs Less
On top of this incredible success rate, at an average of under $70 a day, the Teen Challenge program costs only a fraction of what secular programs cost; some as much as $1,000 a day or more! We save on operational costs because a percentage of our staff is volunteer. And, students help “pay their way” while learning responsibility, new skills and diligence in work study activities.
