A New Life

Faustino’s Story

Jason and Tiffany’s Story

Six years ago I was arrested for what felt like the millionth time. I was stuck in a ten year IV heroin and meth addiction. I went from being a mother and a daughter to losing my kids and stealing from everyone that loved me.

My mind is blown every day that I wake up sober in a bed, not under an overpass, and not dope sick with a needle in my arm. God has truly blessed my husband and I with a wonderful life where we get the privilege to walk alongside individuals as they navigate through recovery and discover who they are in Christ Jesus! – Tiffany

Cristin’s Story

I became addiction’s favorite prey at a very young age; just an empty shell of a person. I never found the fulfillment I needed, but at least I didn’t have to feel anymore. Slowly the drugs, abuse and countless incarcerations began to weigh on me and God’s grace stepped in.

Today I get to testify to the goodness of God and watch Him bring life back to women who come searching for something lasting, just as I had! He continues to use my past to help others and has molded me into a woman that is confident, bold and hopeful.

Kyle’s Story

It’s never anyone’s dream to be an addict or to be lost. That’s never anyone’s dream. That was never my dream. But I’m so thankful that there was an opportunity to take a year in God’s emergency room, with a master physician that never fails.

Adult & Teen Challenge works because it’s completely focused on Jesus. There’s time to work on relationships and relationships take time. One year is just the beginning of a new relationship with God and the Holy Spirit.

Changed Lives Leave Here


At the age of 25, I finally came to grips with the fact that I had an unmanageable addiction. I had trapped myself in a hopeless paradox of having to work to support my habit, and having to maintain my habit to work. I remember thinking I would die before I reached the age of 30, but thankfully God had other plans for my life.


Both my parents battled addiction and from a young age I desired to break free from that lifestyle. I attended the University of Oregon for three years until addiction found me and stole everything I fought so hard to create. Now I can’t wait to discover what God has in store for me and my future.

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.
