Teen Challenge (Kyabram, Vic) offers a faith-based alternative for rehabilitation. The residential program is based upon Christian principles for living. Our aim is to provide youth, adults and families with an effective and comprehensive faith-based solution to life-controlling drug and alcohol problems in order to become productive members of society. By applying biblical principles, Teen Challenge endeavours to help people become mentally sound, emotionally balanced, socially adjusted, physically well and spiritually alive. This is applied through mentoring, class work and completing personal studies. It also includes work detail, learning new skills and good work ethics. The program is fully structured and supervised.
The program is open to any one who is struggling with a life-controlling problem i.e. a problem that appears to control their life (drug dependency, alcoholism, emotional problems, gambling, etc). We primarily service Victoria although we can take referrals from other Teen Challenge centres.
The rehabilitation program involves the individual breaking with their life-controlling problem, reactivating the maturing process and developing a new lifestyle. This enables the person to become an acceptable and functional member of society, fortifying them to live free from old habits. This is achieved through Personal Studies, Group Studies, Work Duties, Recreation and Physical Exercise and a Personal Mentor with whom they meet on a regular basis.
