Dangers of Mixing Prescriptions with Street Drugs At most Adult & Teen Challenge addiction recovery centers, we offer drug addiction help without also giving our students prescriptions drugs. Many rehabilitation centers, however, take a pharmaceutical treatment approach. These addiction recovery programs will give substance abusers pharmaceuticals to help them deal with the pain of withdrawal. Some other medications supposedly help keep people from relapsing after leaving their addiction recovery program. We take an alternate approach because we know how street drugs can interact with pharmaceuticals in a terrible way. We prefer to change behaviors first and foremost. As a Christian recovery program, we also highlight the importance of following God’s word when times get difficult. We believe this approach gives our students the highest chance of staying sober because prescription drugs sometimes interact in negative ways with street drugs.Learn More
The Benefits of Holistic Treatment Breaking from traditional methods, Adult & Teen Challenge USA takes a holistic approach to addiction recovery. Instead of focusing on psychotherapy and 12-step programs, holistic treatment focuses on all aspects of an individual’s life to reassess one’s behavior, attitudes, and way-of-thinking.Learn More
I was tired of getting high. I wanted to stop but didn’t know how. I decided to go to the Mental Health Complex because I knew it was a safe place where I could get help. There, a priest told me that Jesus was the only one that could help me. He told me about Teen Challenge.
During this last year the Lord has helped me immensely. I am rebuilding my life in Christ. I graduated last month and will be entering Brooklyn Teen Challenge School of Ministry in October. Thank you for supporting Teen Challenge Wisconsin! Your support helps those struggling with addiction find freedom.
