Specialization

  • Holistic Therapy

    Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.
  • Aftercare Support

    Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.

  • Jacqueline Strothoff
    Jacqueline StrothoffExecutive Director, Teen Challenge Women's and Girls' Ministries
    Twelve years of drug addiction drove Jacqueline Strothoff to participate in every rehabilitation effort presented to her as she desperately struggled to overcome her addiction. Those years were devastating as she was committed several times to psychiatric hospitals and incarcerated for criminal activities. During one of those stays in a psychiatric hospital in 1974, Jacqui experienced a life-changing encounter with the Lord Jesus Christ. Upon her release, she entered New Life For Girls, a one year Christian residential discipleship program in Pennsylvania. From there, she enrolled in a ministerial training program at Rev. David Wilkerson’s Twin Oaks Leadership Academy in Texas, where she met her husband, Bob. They spent the next several years working in Teen Challenge centers across the country and then settled in Springfield, Missouri where Jacqui earned a degree in social work from Southwest Missouri State College. Jacqui has ably served the Lord in a variety of capacities in churches and ministries. Her life and testimony has impacted thousands of hurting lives. Today that impact continues as she serves Teen Challenge New England and New Jersey in a senior leadership role. Jacqui is the proud mother of two adult children and the ecstatic grandmother of two adorable grandchildren.

My cousin was treated here although technically she could be my daughter Bridget lived with me when she came out of treatment from another program and was clean from heroin for a couple of years but she did drink often telling me that that was not her poison. And never going to meetings. So it did not take her long to spiral out of control. She often would tell me in our many arguments that going to meetings were not for her. I would tell her she needs to make a connection, find an outlet something to resonated with. Well she spiraled and that is how she landed on the door step of Teen Challenge Road Island. And Thank the heavens above that she did because she would not be with us today had she not. Since Bridget has been In the program she is a new person She has made a connection with God and a connection with herself. It is wonderful to see how healthy and happy she is. The change has followed through in all aspects of her life. And she continues to grow and connect with her family and her children. She is doing and internship with Teen Challenge and just continues to grow. This program is amazing it shows the woman about self worth and how to love the person they are All with the power of God’s words This program has given Bridget her life back for that I am truly thankful. And I can not wait the red the next chapter in Bridgets life.

Using faith to build self worth. Using faith to build character. Using faith to teach self control and discipline. Using faith to heal hurts. Bringing you into a relationship with Christ and teaching you to trust in Him (a power greater than yourself). Teaching gratefulness and patience. Being a faith based program it teaches that addiction is sinful and can be healed if you trust in God and work hard enough. Doesn't allow any outside counseling or 12 step material. Strictly monitored contact with the outside world. Mail is read and phone calls are listened too and restricted. Females have 0 contact with men. My time there taught me how to love myself through Christ's eyes and to learn to lean on my higher power. It gave me a sheltered, safe, heavily monitored and structed environment to put space between me and harmful people, places and things. While it was difficult to live in such a restrictive and only God type environment, it saved my life and taught me character, discipline, and many other skills I desperately lacked. The staff showed me love and compassion and I desperately needed to know that I was worthy of love and forgiveness. For a faith based program, its the best, but you won't find the main stream ammenities and freedom to do as you wish.
