Teen Challenge Croatia has a long history. In the nineties they operated two rehab centers (for men and women). In that time of war and post-war transition Croatia had an epidemic of addiction. Teen Challenge played a significant role in fighting this epidemic. Many young people have found the way of freedom. In the last ten years, TC Croatia was not active. Step (TC Croatia) wants to renew the work of Teen Challenge in Croatia.
