Discover Real, Lasting Hope From
Drug and Alcohol Addiction
“In my distress, I prayed to the Lord, and the Lord answered me and set me free.”
– Psalm 118:5
Great Lakes Men’s Rehab, part of Adult & Teen Challenge, is a Christian rehab center for men with life-controlling issues. Our recovery methods are born from a personal relationship with our Lord and Savior.
We believe that the answer is Jesus Christ.
We have an outstanding success rate.
76% of men who complete our program remain free of addiction.
Great Lakes Men’s Rehab accepts applicants from all walks of life through the Christian rehab center for men. Court-ordered students are welcome, but they must be willing to work the program and sincerely desire change.
If one of our residents struggles to find the support they need, we help direct them to an alternative opportunity. This program is designed for people who want to overcome their drug or alcohol addiction and are committed to working at it.
Christian Residential Centers
Our adult men’s rehab program is 12 months and based at the Men’s Center of Hope Campus.
Our Christian Rehab Center Location
Great Lakes Men’s Rehab Center began its first residential recovery program for men on 27th Street in 1983. Several years later, this program was moved to 44th and North Avenue on Milwaukee’s north side. The North Avenue facility housed up to 12 men and was opened by Reverends Gene Berres and Bob McDonald. By 1990, the men’s addiction rehab center had grown significantly, and we desperately needed additional bed space. With very few resources, God provided us with a two-acre campus to house up to 30 male residents. With the help of many faithful supporters, we added a chapel and 30 additional beds to the men’s dorm in 2009. Today, our Milwaukee Christian rehabilitation center is considered one of the top Adult & Teen Challenge facilities in the United States. The property comprises the Don Wilkerson Memorial Chapel, the Center of Hope Men’s Dorm, the White House Administrative Building, an eight-unit staff housing building, and a full-service vehicle facility. Our Men’s Center of Hope Campus is a first-class facility in the heart of Milwaukee, but the people inside and the state of their hearts are what truly matters to us. At Great Lakes Men’s Rehab, part of Teen Challenge, we create a safe environment for recovery.
