More about Minnesota Adult & Teen Challenge…¹
Our mission is to assist teens and adults in gaining freedom from chemical addictions and other life controlling problems by addressing their physical, emotional and spiritual needs.
We offer effective and affordable programs throughout Minnesota with campuses in Minneapolis, Brainerd, Duluth, Rochester and Buffalo. We offer both a long-term, faith-based recovery program and short-term licensed treatment program, allowing us to effectively serve individuals with a broad spectrum of addiction issues; from those seeking treatment for the first time, to those who have been struggling with addiction for many years.
History of MnTC
In 1958, David Wilkerson traveled to New York City to minister to teens. There he found hard-core drug addiction as well as prostitution and gang violence. In order to help these teens, Wilkerson established the first “Teen Challenge Center” in the heart of New York City.
Over time, Teen Challenge expanded its programs, offering to help adults as well as teens. Now there are more than 200 centers across the United States and over 1,000 centers worldwide, making Teen Challenge the largest network of drug and alcohol programming in the world.
