What We Do

At Mid-Atlantic Teen Challenge, our programs for troubled teens have been developed for boys ages 12-17 to encourage them to cope with everyday life issues, as well their struggle with addiction. By doing this, we steer them away from their damaging habits not only while they’re staying with us, but for the rest of their life. Students typically rise early and have little free time, thanks to a busy schedule of:

  • Devotions
  • Discipleship Training
  • Work Projects
  • Meal Times
  • Chapel Services
  • Bible Reading
  • Recreational Activities
  • Secondary Educational Classes

How Our Programs Help Your Teenager

Lives are transformed at Mid-Atlantic Teen Challenge by the power of God – a far stronger force than the bonds of addiction. Mid-Atlantic Teen Challenge helps the total person with spiritual, emotional, physical, social and educational challenges to prepare them for their new life. We want your teenage son to return to their everyday life prepared to tackle the challenges ahead without resorting to substance abuse.

Spiritual Healing

Mid-Atlantic Teen Challenge knows that the student’s symptoms are indicative of deeper problems and conflicts. We understand that a new life in Christ will give them the power and ability to overcome these problems and live a more productive life free of addiction.

Emotional Healing

The healing of past abuses is vital to recovery. Bible studies enhance emotional, mental and spiritual growth, which helps to serve as a foundation for creating new lives.

Physical Healing

We care for the physical needs of the students who stay with us. These needs – a drug-free environment, food, recreation, and support  – are key factors to the student’s success in their recovery program.

Social Healing

Students learn to work through relationship problems with their peers and with their families at home. They will learn to apply the character qualities they learn in the classroom to their everyday lives.

Educational Guidance

Mid-Atlantic Teen Challenge has developed a curriculum specifically designed to teach students about God and help them develop the skills required for them to become successful Christians. Adolescent centers provide secondary education, while some adult centers offer GED programs.

After Graduation

Upon graduation, students are made aware of educational and ministry opportunities in their local community colleges and churches.

Although pursuing higher education has obvious benefits for any individual, it is vital that the church has a place for those in the after care process. This gives former students the anchor of faith that they establish with us.

Continuing involvement in the local church is critical to the ongoing development of any believer, especially those who have come through the battleground of addiction.
