Teen Challenge Staff

We believe that the key to a successful rehabilitation program is a result of allowing the teaching of Jesus Christ to guide our staff members in the development of our troubled teens. Using Christian values and a steady dose of guidance and discipline, our staff is well equipped to help your troubled teen find the path to a healthy, disciplined adulthood. Our staff will help your son develop a relationship with Jesus Christ. We call this “the Jesus Factor”. We believe that when people develop a relationship with God, everything about their lives changes. And our staff is uniquely qualified to help your son develop that relationship.

Our Mid-Atlantic Teen Challenge staff have been trained in the intricacies of the Christian Religion as well as keys to teaching those lessons to troubled teens. Years of experience in the teaching of teen boys have prepared our staff for the development of your son or grandson. Our program includes mentoring programs, substance abuse treatment, as well as Christian discipleship training.

As we are focused on helping teens break free from addiction and other life-controlling issues, our staff is trained on how to use the teachings of Jesus Christ to bring your troubled teen into a relationship with God. As our services are specifically created for teen boys between 12-17, we also take education very seriously. Our staff is committed to making certain that your son or grandson has a chance at success after finishing the substance abuse treatment.
