PUTTING HOPE WITHIN REACH OF THOSE WHO ARE HURTING AND ADDICTED
Empowering parents and encouraging at-risk youth to make positive choices.
WHAT IS THE ISSUE?
Over 9% of the United States population is currently using illicit drugs – that’s 28.5 million people. Sadly, only 1 in 10 of those who are addicted will ever enter into a residential treatment facility. Hope Outreach is the key to making a difference and putting hope within reach in your community by providing a non-residential solution to the addiction problem in your area.
Day after day, addiction and drug abuse devastates the lives of countless men, women, boys and girls. Children are robbed of their innocence. Families are torn apart. Prison cells are filled. Homeless shelters and food banks are overwhelmed. Social and welfare systems are failing. Estimated at over $366 billion per year, the social and financial costs are immense.
For those seeking help, most medical, psychological and behavioral treatment programs only offer glimmers of hope in “curing” those with life-controlling substance issues. Hope for the addicted, for their loved ones and for our communities has all but disappeared. That is why we believe it is important to strategically put hope within reach of every addict.
“I truly admire Teen Challenge because of its loving, life-giving ministry to individuals who are bound by drugs and other life controlling addictions.”
