Men (18 years and older) seeking freedom from substance abuse addictions find a haven of hope at Adult and Teen Challenge of the Four States. They discover tools based on biblical principles that assist them in the recovery process. They learn to live a new life in a highly structured, year-long program. They are provided the opportunity for growth through chapel services, group and personal studies, pastoral counseling, work therapy and community service opportunities.

Each program participant learns how to turn to God, be honest with himself, experiences inner healing and learns to develop healthy relationships that will enrich their lives. Our goal is to return them back to their families and communities as healthy and productive men.

We invite you to consider Adult and Teen Challenge of the Four States in your journey to become all that God intended for you to be.

There is hope.
You can change.

After a year in our program, your life will never be the same.


We believe in second chances. Adult & Teen Challenge of the Four States is a faith based, long term, residential, substance abuse discipleship program. For over 60 years, Adult & Teen Challenge has been the go-to source for those struggling with drugs and alcohol. Thousands of graduates around the world have learned how to live a prosperous life, free from substance abuse. We believe that by providing our students with a fresh perspective, they will have the opportunity to realize their potential and pursue their dreams. We believe in the power of change. If given a chance, every man can go on to lead a satisfying, rewarding and productive life. Men who were once unstable, unproductive and a drain on their families and communities are now contributing men of integrity.


Adult & Teen Challenge of the Four States is set in the scenic Ozark region of southwest Missouri on the outskirts of Neosho, MO. Our campus encompasses 13 acres with a residential home for 24 men.
