Help Us Find A new Way
Teen Challenge Slovenia
Thousands of young people with serious addictions have been through our programmes and a large majority of them have gone on to live successful and drug free lives.
Teen Challenge Slovenija is a NGO that operates nationally to help young people who have developed life controlling problems, especially drug and alcohol addictions, and also to offer preventative help to those who may be in danger of doing so.
Addicts find support in a warm, caring environment and receive personalized education, faith-based counseling and life-skills training.
Concerned friends and family members are encouraged as their loved one receives an opportunity for a cure.
Graduates find freedom from drug use, enjoy restored relationships with loved ones, and pursue a healthy and productive life.
Clients meet Jesus and discover life-transforming hope, strength, and purpose through a personal relationship with Him.

Our experience has led us to the conclusion that it is possible for a man to become free from an addiction only when he has a firm personal wish and he creates a personal relationship with God. What we can do is facilitate, encourage, motivate and help the men to make changes in their lives, but it is the man himself who has to want those changes, make an effort, and do the job.
