Helping Veterans

For over 30 years, Minnesota Adult & Teen Challenge has worked to assist people in gaining freedom from chemical addictions and other life-controlling problems by addressing their physical, emotional and spiritual needs.

We now provide specialized support for service members and Veterans struggling with substance abuse. MnTC has worked hard to ensure that we are a partner that comes alongside men and women who serve our country by providing support before, during and after treatment.

“No other community partner has had this level of care, understanding and capabilities to soldiers like MnTC.” -Tara M. Robertson, ADCO Officer
