  • Holistic Therapy

    Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.
  • Aftercare Support

    Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.

  • Jacqueline Strothoff
    Jacqueline StrothoffExecutive Director, Teen Challenge Women's and Girls' Ministries
    Twelve years of drug addiction drove Jacqueline Strothoff to participate in every rehabilitation effort presented to her as she desperately struggled to overcome her addiction. Those years were devastating as she was committed several times to psychiatric hospitals and incarcerated for criminal activities. During one of those stays in a psychiatric hospital in 1974, Jacqui experienced a life-changing encounter with the Lord Jesus Christ. Upon her release, she entered New Life For Girls, a one year Christian residential discipleship program in Pennsylvania. From there, she enrolled in a ministerial training program at Rev. David Wilkerson’s Twin Oaks Leadership Academy in Texas, where she met her husband, Bob. They spent the next several years working in Teen Challenge centers across the country and then settled in Springfield, Missouri where Jacqui earned a degree in social work from Southwest Missouri State College. Jacqui has ably served the Lord in a variety of capacities in churches and ministries. Her life and testimony has impacted thousands of hurting lives. Today that impact continues as she serves Teen Challenge New England and New Jersey in a senior leadership role. Jacqui is the proud mother of two adult children and the ecstatic grandmother of two adorable grandchildren.

This program sometimes takes on more then they can handle. They over work thier students you work 40-60 hours a week at a job and all the money goes to the program. They do not give you a percentage of the checks you earn working for maybe when you graduate to help you transition. Take your food stamps if you do not have any they make you go to SSI to get them on top of all that they want you to pay money to stay there. All they say is do you know how much it takes to run a program yes i do and you are making a lot of money with the students hard work atleast you can do is have a few bucks for the student when they graduate to help them transition. Living arrangements are horrible mice everywhere on each floor and they pack a lot of people in one room. No professional counselors they just say the Bible is your therapy just a lot of stuff needs to change at this place. Honestly i think they should be investigated to see if they are doing things correctly and legal. Sorry im entitled to my own opinion. Im sure many would agree who went to this progran!!
