“During the 31 years that I have been working for Teen Challenge, I have seen the effectiveness of this ministry demonstrated in thousands of lives. I have also learned that Teen Challenge is most effective when it operates as a family not an institution. Through the years we have strived to keep our ministry intimate. Our students eat and live together in a home-like setting where they are loved and accepted as brothers and sisters. We are committed to excellence on every level so that the people that come to us for help can receive the healing that they so desperately need.”
Our long-term faith-based residential recovery program assists individuals in gaining freedom from drug and alcohol addiction and the life-controlling problems associated with it. Residents work to overcome self-destructive patterns associated with their substance abuse while developing positive life skills.
Teen Challenge of Richmond is currently a crisis hotline and referral center helping anyone struggling with life-controlling drug and alcohol problems. We are devoted to bringing hope to those who are unable to commit to a residential setting.
I found myself lying in a hospital bed where God showed me if I would believe
in Christ and turn from my sinful life and trust in Him with my whole life, I would be set free. He led me to Teen Challenge Fredericksburg, where I surrendered my life to Christ and started my personal relationship with Him. With the help of Teen Challenge, I’ve learned so much about God and so much about myself. I have truly been transformed by the power of Christ and his love. I am especially grateful for Teen Challenge Fredericksburg where the love of God and the power of the Holy Spirit are never absent.
Before Christ, I was desperately reaching out to the world for help; grasping onto every
dangerous thing that made me feel good physically. Since graduating from Teen Challenge, I have found an awesome job, become the mother God has intended me to be, and am growing stronger in Christ every day! I have recently been awarded full custody of my son and we have settled into a place of our own! God is so awesome and faithful to all of His promises if you just surrender to Him and allow Him to work in your life! Because of Christ, I’ve been transformed from a hopeless dope addict into a dopeless hope addict!
