WARNING: DO NOT PUT YOUR CHILD IN ANY TEEN CHALLENGE FACILITY.

BEWARE: TEEN CHALLENGE IS NOT LICENSED OR REGULATED BY THE GOVERNMENT. There are no licensed, certified or qualified counselors on staff because they are not required to hire them. IN FACT, Teen Challenge has a history of hiring ex-cons and convicted sex offenders and they lie about their success rate.

PLEASE UNDERSTAND THIS IS NOT A "TREATMENT" FACILITY! YOU WILL NOT GET HELP FOR BEHAVIORAL PROBLEMS OR ADDICTIONS BY QUALIFIED PROFESSIONALS. CHILDREN DO NOT GET HELP IN TEEN CHALLENGE. THERE ARE WIDESPREAD REPORTS CHILDREN ARE ISOLATED, ABUSED, BEATEN, STARVED AND BRAINWASHED.

This is not "treatment" and it certainly isn't Christianity. Real Christians would not treat children like this.

I volunteer at the Teen Challenge Center for Adult Men in Tallahassee,Florida, which is under the parent group-Teen Challenge of Florida. I have seen the change in these men during their 12 month stay at our center whether they came to the program voluntarily, or, if they were court ordered to the program to avoid jail time.The staff truly cares about each individual, no matter their circumstance and no matter if they pay a dime or anything for their stay at the center.Turning around from a life long addiction is a hard thing to do & would want to get my help for a better life at Teen Challenge Tallahassee Men's Center.
