Teen Challenge of Southern California has been an effective solution to life-controlling problems for thousands of people for more than 50 years. We offer a variety of outreach programs, and we have a one-year residential drug recovery program for men and women over the age of 18, as well as adolescent boys ages 12 – 17. The one-year adult program starts with a student entering one of our Induction Centers for approximately three months, then transferring to one of two long-term centers for an additional nine months.
The one-year program is designed to address the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of our more than 500 students. Over the course of their stay, we provide Christian discipleship classes, individual advising sessions, vocational training, basic computer classes, GED certificate and high school diploma courses and curriculum designed to help each student re-integrate into society.
