Pacific Northwest Adult & Teen Challenge

Recovery Testimonies

Changed Lives Leave Here


I came into Adult & Teen Challenge completely broken and lost because of my addiction. Today, I am involved in mobilizing thousands of volunteers and speaking into the lives of many broken people.


I came to Teen Challenge embarrassed and ashamed of what my life had become and what kind of parent I had become. But I have literally watched Jesus cover my past with His blood and been a part of an amazing transformation.

Every person has a story.

There is Power in our Testimony

I arrived at Adult & Teen Challenge broken, separated from my children and addicted to drugs and alcohol… with God as my cornerstone I have been able to rebuild my life and restore my relationship with my wife and children.


I tried so many times to get clean on my own. I tried every secular treatment facility. But I kept failing every time. I didn’t feel like there was any hope for me. 


I pressed in around the clock, devoured His word, studied every word on every page. I was consumed by God’s love and His power! His Spirit was flowing in that program and I was in love with it. I would look in the mirror and see transformation.


Recovery and Redemption

Zory’s Story

Like most of the men who come into our program, addiction had complete control over my life. I lived alone and miserable in my car on the streets of Portland. I had attempted recovery many times to no avail. I was desperate for deliverance.

Adult & Teen Challenge was the only thing that I hadn’t tried, so I finally entered the program. Everything changed during that season of life. I was surrounded by strong mentors who pointed me back to God. I began to know and understand God’s will for my life, and I finally experienced the joy and peace I had been searching for my whole life. I no longer felt the bondage of my past, and addiction lost its grip on my life. Praise God! I am filled with a joy that surpasses all understanding.

Freedom from Bondage

Kayle’s Story

I grew up the oldest of four. My father was a pastor, and my mother showed me a near perfect example of a Christian woman. I grew up knowing what was expected of me. I was an honor student, involved in leadership, cheer, volunteer work, and attended church on Sunday.

So, it was a total surprise to everyone in my life that I fell into a deep opiate addiction. Addiction held me captive for eight years, until I was introduced to Adult & Teen Challenge. My life has changed! I encountered God’s love in a radically different way. My deep desire to pursue Christ is renewed, and I find my strength Him!
