Nestled amongst the beautiful pines trees of Brainerd, the Central Minnesota Adult & Teen Challenge is bringing hope to those battling addictions.  The facility is capable of treating 89 male residential clients as well as offering outpatient services to women and men. You will receive a warm welcome here no matter who you are or what you’ve been through. You’ll find a staff that understands your struggles and helps you face them with grace and compassion. If you or a loved one is suffering with addiction, please do not hesitate to contact us today!  We offer both our signature 13-month program as well as a traditional licensed shorter-term residential program in a brand new facility just constructed onsite.

“I believe with all my heart that God is willing and able to help and transform anyone who is willing. And I want my life to matter. I can think of no better way to invest my life than to pour into hurting and addicted individuals and watch them be transformed by grace. I want to see everyone who desires to live a life of freedom and joy to find it.”
-Sam Anderson, Central Minnesota Adult & Teen Challenge center director
