TCD is one of approximately 240+ centers across the USA (plus 900 worldwide) and is accredited through Teen Challenge International USA.
From the beginning, Teen Challenge has operated under the concept that a person with life-controlling problems can change, IF that person wants to change. Teen Challenge of the Dakotas offers a residential program for adult males 18 years and older. The 16-month program consists of 5 phases of induction, training and Re-Entry. The first 10 months include the 4 phases of Induction and training. The fifth and final phase of Re-Entry is 6 months in length and consists of further discipleship and assistance in transitioning back into "the real world." TCD is overseen by a Board of Directors, an Executive Director and a loving staff. Many of our students come from broken homes; and several have been involved with gangs and criminal activity. Some may be court ordered to complete the program. With more than 50 years of history in helping drug and criminal offenders, Teen Challenge has earned a reputation as one of America's most successful rehabilitation programs.
