Our goal at Adult & Teen Challenge of South Carolina is to help each student achieve health, freedom from addiction, and skills for the future. We do this by providing Christian discipleship, educational opportunities, and work skill experience.
Throughout the years, studies have been conducted about the Adult & Teen Challenge USA process. Theses studies have found that the number one reason our students are still sober after leaving Adult & Teen Challenge is their faith in God. When asked what they attribute their success to, their faith and their family were the two most common answers.
As a Christian recovery program, we focus on the power of the Holy Spirit and the teachings of Christ to give our students a guiding light. Through Christ, our students are able to form a stronger connection to their faith, which makes a huge difference in their recovery. We provide a faith-based environment to encourage healing and a new life in Christ. We instill Biblical teachings into our daily routines and give our students the tools they need to empower themselves through God. We do this by providing daily chapel services, participating in outreach programs, and personal devotions.
Our goal is to help students become well-rounded people that are equipped for the future. If a student isn’t a high school graduate, we work with them to help them earn their GED. This is an important step in preparing them for a productive and healthy life after completing the Adult & Teen Challenge program. We also provide practical living classes. These classes include courses to teach financial and relational skills.
The third area we strive to develop in each student is in the area of work skills. Students participate in daily work detail as a part of the program. They not only learn a good and healthy work ethic, they are able to learn valuable work skills in the process. The program helps students develop personal discipline to help them maintain the positive momentum established in the Adult & Teen Challenge program.
