Teen Challenge New England’s Brockton campus has recently increased its bed capacity to accommodate an additional 42 clients
Teen Challenge New England is a faith-based 15-month minimum residential recovery program for men and women with life-controlling problems such as drug and alcohol abuse that may also be accompanied by legal and social problems. The goal of Teen Challenge is to see men and women become mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually well, thus becoming productive members of society.
The overall objective of the program is to initiate a positive change in values and lifestyles as the students apply biblical principles to their lives. The students are involved in academics, work training and daily chapel services in which the focus of the message is the necessity for those who are afflicted with drug and alcohol problems to change their attitude, behaviors and way of thinking. We also provide mentoring sessions focusing on drug and alcohol abuse, marriage, parenthood, anger management and other issues.
The attributes and principles found in the Teen Challenge New England curriculum include:
- Principles related to anger management and conflict resolution
- Relapse prevention dealing with stress and boredom
- Finding purpose and meaning through difficult circumstances
- Identifying and evaluating failure
- Remaining faithful to commitments despite failure-(hope)
- Understanding personal rights, controlling anger, how not to harm others through anger, understanding and addressing conflict as well as respecting and serving others
- Preparing for a healthy marriage, family reunification and identifying how personal behavior affects others
- Cultivating a positive character through studying the qualities of our character (such as humility, dependability, patience and loyalty) and how they can be incorporated into our daily lives.
