A Culture of Responsibility, a Center of Hope from Drug Addiction

We can help you take back control over your life and find freedom in living within established boundaries.

Why Great Lakes Men’s Rehab Center for Low Cost Addiction Treatment?

Is Great Lakes Men’s Drug
Rehab The Right Program
For You or Your Loved One?

  • You keep taking a drug after it’s no longer needed for a health problem.
  • You need more and more of a substance to get the same effects (called “tolerance”), and you can take more before you feel an effect.
  • You cannot keep employment.
  • You’ve begun having trouble doing normal daily things, like cooking or working.
  • You borrow or steal money to pay for drugs.

    “When I founded Teen Challenge 40 years ago, I had no idea that God would multiply this movement around the world! From the beginning, my vision has been to introduce troubled young people to Jesus Christ, and then get them back on the streets witnessing for the Lord. Today, God is raising up a mighty army of Spirit-filled soul-winners and evangelists – out of former drug addicts and gang members! But we must have help to continue. The problems we see today are much worse than what I encountered in New York in 1958. I pray you will stand with us in prayer and support.”

    “Teen Challenge is the oldest one of the most effective ongoing programs of its kind in America. Not only does Teen Challenge help our young people deal with substance abuse, but it also gives our kids something to live for, a relationship with God, a healthy self-esteem – direction in their lives that finally leads somewhere.”
