Teen Challenge Slovenia is a non-governmental organization that exists to provide assistance and advice to people who have problems with any kind of addiction. Their mission: "giving hope to the hopeless".
In the area of prevention and treatment Teen Challenge Slovenia has been succesful for many years. From humble beginnings working on the streets, they were able to establish a rehabilitation program for men in September 2010. The main objective of the rehabilitation program is to help people with life-threatening problems, with a focus on people who are addicted to drugs and alcohol. The program is designed to initiate the process of Discipleship, which will enable the student in everyday life and social environment to act as a mature individual, while keeping the moral principles in relation to the family, the local community, their chosen profession and society. The work of Teen Challenge Slovenia also includes prevention programs in schools.
