Non-Residential Recovery Programs

Along with our residential recovery programs, we offer several non-residential programs. These allow for people to learn new Christ-centered ways of managing life-controlling problems. Being connected with a faith-based community is one of the best tools for maintaining your addiction recovery.


Community groups are a great way for people to maintain their sobriety outside of a residential program. Our community programs use our discipleship programs and are facilitated by experienced leaders.  Lifeline Connections is an example of a community group. They use the Living Free program, which is a faith-based small group curriculum. It is used by many different types of organizations to address life-controlling problems.


Many of our graduates wanted to return as staff members once they finish the program. They desired to help others who are struggling with the same addiction issues they had. This led to the creation of Adult & Teen Challenge USA ministry training programs. These facilities have been established all throughout the country. They are are used to train men and women to work as leaders within our ministry.


Some of our centers operate outreach and referral centers for their surrounding communities. These centers offer help for those seeking a program for themselves or a loved one. These centers are not available in every location. But, they are a great resource for those looking for more information about our recovery programs.


There are currently two models of the Adult & Teen Challenge program that are being used in prisons across the country. One program is based on the residential recovery program. It has a specific barracks unit dedicated to the program within the prison itself. The prisoners involved receive guidance and support as they recovery from addiction. It is like a traditional Adult & Teen Challenge program.

The other prison program is modeled after our community groups. These weekly small group meetings offer structured, faith-based support for prisoners. Experienced leaders offer guidance and discipleship to help them stay on track with their recovery.
