Teen Challenge operates 12-month in-residence alcohol and drug addiction rehabilitation programs with centres located in Alberta, Atlantic Canada, Saskatchewan and Ontario. We offer help and hope to those struggling with alcoholism and/or addiction to other drugs. Those in addiction, their family and friends, begin their restoration at Teen Challenge.

As a community, we are all affected by addiction in one form or another. The Canadian Mental Health Association estimates that 21% of all Canadians will struggle with addiction during their lifetime. That amounts to 6 million people!

Here at Teen Challenge Canada, we wanted to start the conversation around the risks associated with substance use and the steps involved in finding freedom from life-controlling addiction. The community that forms Teen Challenge Canada is made up of donors, community groups, volunteers and staff across Canada, that care deeply about the men and women who come through our doors looking for help with their struggle against addictions.

Teen Challenge Canada proudly stands with other rehabilitation services, non-profit organizations, and other Teen Challenge ministries to bring hope and freedom to men and women caught in addiction. And for everyone who chooses to get help through our faith-based, 12-month, in-residence program, we are ready to support you in your recovery journey! To learn more about the Teen Challenge Canada program and/or to get addiction help today, visit www.teenchallenge.ca/get-help.
