My son is in teen challenge in San Antonio Texas right now and has been for the last 13 months. It has SAVED his life. They have facilitated a CHANGE in him that could not be done anywhere else. He is alive today because the people at Teen Challenge care about his sobriety, success and spiritual growth. Those "haters" that didn't succeed at TC or have never experienced TC first hand can say what they want... As for me and my house, we serve the Lord..and give thanks where thanks is due....Thank you Teen Challenge for reaching out to those that are lost. God Bless You.

Someone once told me a mother's love can be compared to God's love for us. That may be partly true, but we cannot fully grasp the depth and enormity of God's love for us. Visit San Antonio Teen Challenge campus, talk to the interns, to the successful students and you WILL feel God's love and see His presence there. Brandon Padgett, the director in San Antonio, is truly an angel right here on earth. He has made a difference in many lives and continues to be the driving force behind TC San Antonio's success in the earthly sense. God has filled TC San Antonio with his spirit and is combatting the wicked ways of this world, day by day. Praise God for people like Brandon and the other staff members that care for everyone that walks in the shoes they once wore.... I will be forever in awe of the amazing transformation I have seen, the MIRACLES that I have witnessed first hand that my son has experienced over the last 13 months. GLORY TO GOD ALMIGHTY!

Teen Challenge is a wonderful program that is both in the United States and Overseas. The power of God in a person's life helps to make us an overcomer. God is a God of second chances and the Teen Challenge Program gives people of all ages a second chance in life in this Christ based program.

My son graduated from TC in Driscoll Tx..Let me tell you without TC I would not have my son in my life...I am sure that the drugs would have taken him... With TC my son has found God and excepted him.. He's now on staff with TC. I praise God and TC for been there for my son and for all those lost souls..And for those who do not believe that TC is a wonderful place you have not had to walk in the shoes of someone who needs help that TC can give...Thank you TC i will forever be in you debt. And praise God for you... God is so Good!!

My son has been at Teen Challenge in San Antonio for 3 weeks. I've spoken with him once, on his 2 week phone call. Of course, he was livid and begged to come home. I said NO - it was so hard to to but I did it. He hung up on me and I haven't heard back from him - I know he hates me right now for taking him there. As a mom, I need support. I'm feeling a little guilty and I need prayer and strength from God to stand my ground. I know this is where he needs to be. He's threatening to leave so keep him in your prayers!

my son starting having problems at the age of 14, if i would have known of this program earlier i would have taken him there myself. He is now 22yrs old and his problems have gotten bigger. For those of you that have taken this program, please don't say NO to GOD, for he is our only answer. we as parents love our children so much that what we do for them is not to hurt them, but because we want the best for them. I am still praying that God will call my son to his side before it is to late for him. My prayers to all of those parents, children and everyone that is taking this program. Don't Give Up!!

My son, Nathanael, is in the Teen Challenge, 'Chad's Hope', in Manchester, KY. On June 30, 2009, he was arrested for meth..again. He almost lost his life. He is in a place where he is not only being taught God's Word; he's also in a place where he is loved. The change that I have seen in Nathanael is nothing but a miracle. Drug addicts do not belong in jail. Teen Challenge is a last hope for so many to finally see that there is no other way to stay sober without Jesus' love and compassion. This is what Teen Challenge does on a daily basis. I pray that the jails will empty the ones with addictions and that the empty beds at Teen Challenge be filled.

A better (and cheaper) alternative to Teen Challenge is going to twelve step meetings and attending the church of your choice every Sunday. I was at Teen Challenge of Chicago, it sucked! At least in NA they don't brainwash you or drum the Assemby of God theology into you.
