What to Expect

The Adult & Teen Challenge of Sandhills, NC residential recovery program helps students overcome the problems that led to their addiction, develop new attitudes and life patterns, cultivate new abilities and practical skills, and engage in outreach and community service. 
These outcomes are achieved through our individual and group recovery curriculum, counseling sessions, chapel services, outreach and community service projects, life skills training, GED program, and recreational opportunities. Our students become a part of a larger Adult & Teen Challenge community and, as alumni, develop and maintain lifelong bonds and friendships.
Our program employs a faith-centered approach to addiction recovery rooted in the truth that everyone’s most basic need is a healthy, growing relationship with God through Jesus Christ. There are thousands of people, each with past experiences resembling destructive patterns and lifestyles, who are living productive meaningful lives today because of what they learned in the program. Our team believes that God has an amazing plan for each person who enters our doors, and we look forward to being a part of the journey.
