The primary and most important difference between recovery programs and North Dakota Adult & Teen Challenge’s long –term residential program is our emphasis on cultivating an atmosphere where a personal relationship with Jesus Christ can be developed.  NDATC realizes that substance abuse is more likely a symptom of much deeper wounds and other life-controlling issues.  These issues all represent a broken person urgently needing compassionate, holistic, and empowering help.

We help prepare people with a specialized entrepreneur mindset taught by those who were formerly incarcerated.

These connections heal worldviews, families, and communities.
