Chad's Hope

Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong.

1 Corinthians 16:13

We believe that there is hope for every person trapped in addiction. Drug and alcohol use leads to feelings of guilt and despair, while the pain inside seems to be endless. At Teen Challenge, we offer a message of hope and freedom through a relationship with Jesus Christ. It is not just freedom from drugs or alcohol, but freedom from everything that would keep us from the destiny for which we were created. If you or a loved one needs help overcoming a life-controlling problem, we are here to help. 

Are you ready to find hope?

Who We Are

Chad's Hope Teen Challenge exists to provide men with an effective and comprehensive Christian faith-based solution to life controlling drug and alcohol problems in order to become productive members of society.  

Chad's Hope Teen Challenge endeavors to help people become mentally sound, emotionally balanced, socially adjusted, physically well, and spiritually alive. We believe that treatment is key, but we are all about transformation.

What We Do

Chad's Hope, a ministry of Adult & Teen Challenge of Kentucky, offers a range of programs to support men with addictions. These include short-term programs, a 12-15 month residential recovery program, restoration for graduates, and potential internships for graduates. Chad's Hope is a Christ-centered program dedicated to providing quality residential recovery care.

In order to meet the unique needs of the students, Chad’s Hope focuses on  spiritual, mental and physical recovery. The staff of Chad’s Hope believe that true change for people addicted to drugs and alcohol comes through a relationship with Jesus Christ. Day in and day out, men’s lives are transformed by the power of God.  We call this the Jesus factor. 

What's Different

Q: Why is Teen Challenge one of the most effective drug recovery programs in America?

A: We know that to be successful an addict needs to move from a self-centered paradigm to a Christ-centered paradigm.

Meet the team.
