12 MONTH RESIDENTIAL PROGRAM 

" Where Hope Lives and Freedom is Found "

At Baltimore Adult & Teen Challenge we teach men principles with purpose. Through biblical principles we help men define who they are and provide them with the tools needed to assist them in the process of recovery. A rigorous and regimented program Baltimore Adult & Teen Challenge offers both personal growth and group studies and mentoring.

Each student will learn to apply biblical principles to the challenges of everyday life through practical processes. Baltimore Adult & Teen Challenge is not an easy program. Consisting of several phases over a 12-month period of time each student will have a structured environment. However; thousands of graduates nationally will tell you that it's worth the effort!

While in the Baltimore Adult & Teen Challenge program, you will learn how to turn to God and be honest with yourself. You will experience inner healing and be able to trust others again. Come and experience restoration and start developing healthy relationships. 

Our program is broken down into 2 phases, an Induction Phase and a Training Phase. Our different phases focus on different aspects of the growth and development of individuals as they walk out of addiction and into a new life. 

PHASE 1: INDUCTION 

After an individual contacts our intake coordinator and their paper work is complete, they will begin the Induction/Instruction Phase of the program. Induction is 4-6 months in length and is a type of “spiritual boot camp” for men who want to be free from life-controlling habits and become alive in God. Upon successful completion of phase 1, they will be promoted to phase 2 of the program. 

PHASE 2: TRAINING 

Phase 2 is 8-10 months. Students are then eligible to participate in one of our work therapy programs. An adapted version of the program schedule is complemented by personal study, Bible study, and community service.  

SCHEDULE 

Students divide their recovery focus between an academic, leadership and job skills format. The first four months are designed to place a greater focus on classroom, academics and mentoring. The following eight months are focused on leadership skills.  

While our students spend a majority of their time in the class settings, they also take part in ministry outings, sporting events, community events, picnics, and retreats. We care about more than simply helping someone change a habit, we want them to experience a whole life change.

Personal Studies (PSNC) 

Personal Studies for New Christians (PSNC) is an individual study program developed by Teen Challenge USA. Teen Challenge students, along with their mentors develop an individual study program through a mutually agreed upon learning contract. Working in this way allows students to focus on their unique needs, concerns and issues.  Often times these learning contracts include elements such as Scripture memorization, topical studies, reading assignments and practicing how to apply these to their own lives.
