About Teen Challenge Queensland

Teen Challenge QLD is a not-for-profit organisation, established in 1971 to provide long-term residential treatment and rehabilitation services for young men aged 16-39 and women aged 16-35 who are struggling to overcome addiction and other life controlling issues such as, self-harm, eating disorders, depression, and homelessness.

Substance abuse is one of the most prevalent issues this generation faces. It has no socio-economic boundaries and most experts agree that addiction has a ripple effect, bringing discord not only into the home but society as well. The impact of substance abuse on our communities is both significant and complex, causing increase in homelessness, criminal activity, mental health issues and family breakdown.

Teen Challenge provides an environment where young people feel loved, accepted and cared for, and we are currently the only rehabilitation facility that offers residential help to teenagers as young as 16.

The Teen Challenge program aims to eliminate their self destructive habits by meeting the needs of the whole person; not only dealing with the addiction, but also rebuilding their self-image, work ethic, relationships and spiritual awareness. We provide young people with a unique and rare opportunity to rebuild their lives. We have a holistic approach to their recovery which includes working with a team of professionals consisting of a General Practitioner, Psychologists, Counsellors, Dieticians and Personal Trainers.  Our Teen Challenge program has a proven track record, helping young people address key issues in their lives and to instill positive lifestyle values, employability skills, financial literacy and responsibility.
