Welcome to the Teen Challenge rehab programme, one of the leading Christian drug rehabilitation programmes in the world. You don’t have to be a Christian to enter our Christian drug rehabilitation programme but just have a desire to find freedom from life-controlling addictions such as drugs and alcohol.
The students that join our Christian drug rehabilitation programme will embark on 14 Christian founded teaching lessons to help explain why addicts have found themselves in need of help and what the Bible says on how to find true freedom. At the very centre of our Christian drug rehabilitation programme is the cross of Jesus Christ with the message of the Gospel proclaiming that all men and women can experience a new life with God and find forgiveness and hope.
As a Christian rehabilitation programme we firmly believe that there is hope found through God’s Word. All of the 14 Christian teachings are based on the Bible. The topics covered are: How do I know I’m a Christian, A Quick Look at the Bible, How to Study the Bible, Spiritual Power and the Supernatural, Christian Practices, Successful Christian Living, Obedience to God & Obedience to Man, Growing Through Failure, Attitudes, Temptation, Anger and Personal Rights, Love and Accepting Myself, Personal Relationships with Others.
If you know of anyone seeking help for problems with drink or drugs please do not hesitate to contact our centre where we can offer residential help and support.
Teen Challenge has been set up as a rescue mission for those caught in addictions and are committed to see individuals find freedom through the cross of Jesus Christ. Although circumstances may change we believe God’s word through the Bible does not change and therefore is a firm and stable foundation to base our lives on. We believe that it is God who helps us when the going gets tough because of his unconditional love for everyone in this world.
Is your programme free or do I have to pay?
There is no direct cost to a person applying to Teen Challenge London except £75 (£50 fee and £25 travel deposit) upon entrance to the programme. This can be waived if the person applying has no money whatsoever. However we do make applications on behalf of the individual for Employment Support Allowance and Housing Benefit which helps to cover the cost of the programme. For this reason applicants to Wilkerson House need to be British and/or have worked and paid taxes in the UK. We are not in receipt of any direct government funding and are supported by many churches and individuals.
The Bible teaches us that God wishes for all men and women to be saved and all to come to repentance.
‘For God so loved the world that he gave His only Son that whoever believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life.’ John 3:16
It is therefore through repentance and faith that a new life can begin where the past is forgiven through the sacrifice of God’s Son Jesus! Jesus says, ‘Behold I make all things new.‘ For now is the day of salvation, now is the time!
