About Treatment Center

Situated in Bakersfield, California, Teen Challenge has treatment options for those who are seeking help for drug and alcohol addiction.

Addiction is a progressive disease of the mind that will continue to get worse with time if it goes untreated. It will continue to worsen without the help of a recovery program. It’s important that those who are addicted to drugs and alcohol seek the help of Teen Challenge in order to regain the life that has become lost to addiction.

Through a thorough patient evaluation, addicts who attend treatment at Teen Challenge can get a personalized treatment plan made. The assessment is intended to depict the severity of the addiction as well as to learn more about the individual themselves. This way, a comprehensive treatment program can be put in place in order to reap the desired result; that being long-lasting abstinence from drugs and alcohol.

Throughout the patient’s time in treatment at Teen Challenge, the addict will learn new vital coping mechanisms and trigger management skills. These will help the addict adapt to a new life that is free of substance abuse when they reenter society. Since many addicts relapse, it is inherently important that they avoid certain settings or social circles that will pressure them to use.

At Teen Challenge, we believe that all addicts have the courage within to overcome their drug and alcohol addiction. Through the constant support of counselors and professional advisors working with addict’s daily, recovery is possible. Despite how long one has been an addict for, recovery is still absolutely attainable. Treatment is not a one-size-fits-all approach and at Teen Challenge, treating each patient with individuality is of utmost importance.

Breaking the vicious cycle of addiction is tough, but with professional counselors and effective treatment options in place, sobriety is closer than it seems. Get in touch with Teen Challenge today at www.Teenchallenge.Com to learn more about how recovery can help pave a new life path. When the final level of sustained sobriety is reached, a feeling of contentment will ensue and this is something to be extremely proud of.

I think they will let ANYONE drive those vans. Constantly speeding and extremely aggressive drivers. May help get your kids off drugs only to put them in danger from vehicle accidents.

Teen Challenge is filled with hope and a destination to a spirit filled life outside of drugs and alcohol that challenge so many of us lost. Every person there shares similar stories but are unique because we are all god's children with different needs and similar upbringings. I love seeing and hearing about the success stories that come out of Teen Challenge.

I knew and was involved with Rev. Harald Bredesen for 15 yrs. Harald helped David Wilkerson & Nicky Cruz fund Teen Challenge 57 yrs. ago. It was established on Godly principals and is one of the most successful rehabs in the world. Unfortunately, I had to experience it first hand when my daughter fell into the trappings of Meth. From taking one hit at a party, over night she went from being a A student, equestrian rider/jumper for 6 years, to now living on the streets, contracting MERSA and almost died ( a true miracle she's not dead) getting arrested and was sentenced to 6 months in jail. When she served her jail time she was required to do 6 months of rehab. She choose Teen Challenge. After fulfilling her 6 months commitment she said I did my 6 months for the court, now I'm doing 6 months for me & God. Not only was she the happiest I've ever seen, she's been clean for over 7 years now. Teen Challenge doesn't brain wash you as I saw someone post, it's God & Bible principled and they don't turn you away if you're broke. As long as you have a true desire to get clean and willing help do some fundraisers to help offset your expenses you're good. You are free to leave at anytime, in fact, she left 3 Teen Challenges after checking in, 2 the same day I checked her in. Amazing what 6 months in Jail can do in giving you a new perspective on life. If you sincerely want to be free of drugs and alcohol this is the place. God is good.

I do not think I would have my daughter if it wasn't for teen challenge. It doesn't have the fancy pools and landscape that a lot of the 30 day rehabs do. What it does have is your loved ones best chance of a recovery from their daily fight to use or not. To stop the lies and stealing or worse. They have support from people that have been there before you. My daughter had been through 4 other rehabs that we're offering her the pool and rec room but even after all of them she would relaps after only 5-6 months. Teen challenge was her last chance to save her from herself and she has been clean and sober since the day she stepped in the front door. She now has a gorgeous baby girl and one on the way. She has an education but most of all she has a loving family and we are all greatfull for the help that teen challenge gave her. The 30 day or 90 day programs just do not have enough time to get them to think differently when that stressful time comes and they want to run back to what worked for them but with teen challenge they have a year clean and sober so they do have the healthy alternative

Teen challenge saved my life. Drugs and the lifestyle that comes with it are very hardcore. It takes much more than cush sayings and living to bring a person out of that life. Here you get God. You learn great work ethic because that is a skill everyone needs to be able to give them self half a chance. Did I mention that it was free of cost for a whole year?! Enough said, my life was a mess. I'm proof this place is miraculous when it comes to transformed lives.
