Established in 2007 Teen Challenge New Jersey is reaching, rescuing and restoring young men and at-risk youth from the grip of drug and alcohol addiction by the power of Jesus Christ. Our proven effective, faith-based recovery program empowers real and lasting life transformation for addicted men — 18 years and older — through spiritual, academic and vocational training. The Teen Challenge New Jersey campus is strategically located in Newark for high-impact outreach to the surrounding communities and is a refuge for drug and alcohol addicted youth who participate in the structured, long term residential recovery program offered here.
Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.
Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.
