Located on 488 beautiful acres at 11 Hudson Lane in Winthrop, Maine, Teen Challenge Maine serves as a refuge from the devastation of a life run by addiction. A leader in long-term recovery success, Teen Challenge Maine utilizes a unique combination of vocational training coupled with Biblical life studies to replace the identity of an addict with that of an identity in Christ Jesus.
Teen Challenge Maine challenges individuals to dig deep and seek the true purpose and focus of their lives. During their program, residents learn to rely on Jesus as well as trust in the process of learning discipline, obedience, and surrender. This is not possible without the structure and discipline of a program which cultivates a new and changed life in anyone who truly seeks the irreplaceable redemption and grace of Jesus Christ. This type of transformation does not occur rapidly.
A long term (12–15 month) residential facility, Teen Challenge Maine has the capacity and ability to save 20 men at any given time from the lives of addiction they choose to leave behind. Teen Challenge Maine has not denied anyone entrance into the program regardless of financial means for the entirety of its existence. Anyone and everyone who truly seeks recovery is given an opportunity to change their lives and begin to serve their families, friends, and communities as responsible, spiritually mature, and dedicated members of society.
True to the heritage and legacy of Teen Challenge, the Connecticut campus seeks to reach out those in need so that every addict would know that there is hope.
