Everyone deserves a second chance. The New Life Centre provides men and women with the chance to break free of their addictions.




Since 1971 Teen Challenge has given young people who struggle with addiction, abuse and other life-controlling problems a second chance at life.

The program aims to eliminate their self-destructive habits by meeting the needs of the whole person, not only dealing with the addiction, but also rebuilding their self-image, work ethic, spiritual awareness and relationships.

In particular we help people who suffer from drug addiction, gambling addiction, alcoholism & alcohol abuse, self harming, eating disorders and mental illness.
