Teen Challenge of Southern California

Teen Challenge of Southern California has been an effective solution to life-controlling problems for thousands of people for more than 50 years. We offer a variety of outreach programs, and we have a one-year residential drug recovery program for men and women over the age of 18, as well as adolescent boys ages 12 – 17. The one-year adult program starts with a student entering one of our Induction Centers for approximately three months, then transferring to one of two long-term centers for an additional nine months.

The one-year program is designed to address the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of our more than 500 students. Over the course of their stay, we provide Christian discipleship classes, individual advising sessions, vocational training, basic computer classes, GED certificate and high school diploma courses and curriculum designed to help each student re-integrate into society .

To inquire about entering the residential program or see what other services Teen Challenge offers in your area, call the center closest to you for more information.

From their website: Delancey Street is a non-profit self-help group for about 1500 drug addicts, alcoholics, prostitutes, ex-convicts, and others whose lives have hit bottom. In this community, residents learn to care for others, to develop values and self-reliance, gain some dignity for themselves, learn occupational skills, get an education, and earn a sense of self-worth so they can ultimately graduate from Delancey Street and make a legitimate and successful life in society. San Francisco is the headquarters with 500 residents; the other facilities are in Los Angeles, New Mexico, North Carolina and New York.

It is primarily a self-supporting, self-governing community maintained entirely by the men and women who come to Delancey for help, representing all racial, cultural and socioeconomic groups. Many residents come into Delancey Street upon referral from an agency of the criminal justice system. Interviews are conducted by other residents of Delancey Street who have been here long enough to understand Delancey’s values. Interviews are conducted on Delancey Street premises as well as in jails. It is important to tell the whole truth in your interview. Since we live as an extended family, we come to know all about each other. If someone lied in the interview, they are asked to leave, since admitting the truth about our lives and situations begins the process of change at Delancey Street. New residents are asked to make a two year commitment because we believe that is the minimal time required to really turn a life completely around which has spent years developing self-destructive patterns. The stay at Delancey Street is disciplined, serious business.

The first few months of Delancey Street are considered the “immigration” phase. Upon acceptance, men will have their hair trimmed to short length and become clean-shaven, and the women are asked to remove all makeup. Clothing is provided and the first focus is to turn around street and/or gang images and develop new self-concepts. These first few weeks are spent in maintenance jobs such as cleaning the facilities and serving meals. Residents are allowed to write immediate family after 30 days, and make a call after 90 days; however, they are generally encouraged to spend their time and energy in “immigration” getting to know those around them, and becoming involved in their new environment. Following that, letters, phone calls and visits are earned along with responsibilities and rewards.

The faster new residents learn good work habits and basic positive interaction skills, the more quickly they will earn their way out of maintenance and out of Immigration and into one of the numerous vocational training departments where they will learn vocational skills. Training schools, some of which generate income for the Foundation, provide job training in many areas including moving, the construction trades, auto maintenance, bookkeeping, culinary arts including café, restaurant and catering skills, sales, among numerous others. The focus is on learning to give, to get a good work ethic, and to help. Also, a strong emphasis is placed on academic education. Residents are tutored until they receive a high school equivalency degree, and numerous in-house classes are provided.

There are three primary rules:

  1. No physical violence;

  2. No threats of violence;

  3. No drugs or alcohol.

Anyone breaking these rules will be asked to leave. Other problems are punished by extra work such as washing dishes. We believe in teaching people to admit their mistakes, fix them, and move forward.

No one in Delancey Street, not even the President, receives a salary. There is no official staff at Delancey Street. Everyone who comes in works his or her way up into some sort of position in which he/she is learning a new job from the person over them who has held that job before, and teaching the job he/she has now to the newer resident. In this way, everyone at Delancey Street is pulling together toward the same goals. No one is simply a receiver; everyone is a giver as well. You are not coming to a program based on counseling. We have a strong work ethic and base our change on learning new ways of living by doing.

Fax (951) 657-0426


Established in 1995, The Hacienda offers a proven program that gives men the tools to abandon violence and self-destruction and become productive members of family and society. A number of men come to the 10-acre, ranch-style campus as an alternative to court-ordered sentencing or after prison release. Many are overcoming alcohol and substance abuse, gang affiliations, domestic violence and homelessness.  Other participants have no criminal background, but come because they recognize their desperate need to alter their self-destructive patterns. There is never any charge to participate in this program.
Men accepted into the program must exhibit a strong desire for positive change by committing themselves to this one-year, live- in, supervised program (Phase I). Daily schedules include participation in assigned responsibilities, job-training activities and program curriculum. After completing Phase I, graduates may opt to enter Phase II and remain on campus up to one additional year for assistance and accountability in: Securing employment, personal transportation and housing; financial counseling; maintaining compliance with probation; continued personal counseling, and general preparation for independent living.
The Hacienda is recognized by Municipal and Superior Courts of Riverside, San Bernardino and Orange Counties (as well as probation) as a faith-based, alternative sentencing program.

∙ Job skills & leadership training

∙ One on one personal counseling
∙ Anger management & domestic violence classes available

Rehabilitation is a healing process and it must involve every aspect of a person. The Los Angeles Mission’s Urban Training Institute is designated to facilitate holistic restoration of men and women whose lives have been devastated by the dis-integrative aspects of homelessness and/ or substance abuse. It serves the total person: spirit, soul and body and addresses all issues from a relational rehabilitation approach. Phases: Jump Start: Induction is a one month course, which allows candidates to get acquainted with UTI and to decided if they want to make a two-year commitment. Fresh Start: The foundation track of the UTI student’s first year is relational rehabilitation. In addition to rehabilitation, all students are required to pursue academic studies and vocational training. Work Start: The second year of UTI expedites transition back into society. The Career Services Department trains and counsels students throughout their transition. Successful transition is re-connection in society with employment, living wages and affordable housing. Academics: The Henry Salvatori Learning Center is available to male and female students who reside at the Los Angeles Mission, the Anne Douglas Center and in the community as well. The Learning Center is equipped with 45 computer lab workstations. Classes offered on-site are as follows: Adult Basic Education (improves academic skills such as reading, writing and math) Computer and Non-Computerized Education High School Completion or GED Readiness Classes ( English and Spanish) Computer Literacy Classes Standardized Test Preparation Computer Fundamentals On-line Courses Customer Service Keyboarding Tutoring English As A Second Language- offers language training to improve English communication skills Independent Studies Bible Classes* *Angelus Bible Institute has partnered with the Mission in accepting the transfer of our Bible classes. (Pauls’ letter to the Romans, Synoptic Gospels, Acts, Systematic Theology) Many classes are taught by State Certified teachers from Belmont Community Adult School, which is the largest adult school in the nation. Life Skills classes such as Anger Management, Domestic Violence, Smoking Cessation and Parenting are taught by certified instructors. The Learning Center has recently purchased the PLATO Learning System to enrich the academic study of our student population. Assessments: Each student is individually assessed by a State Certified Student Counselor to determine his/her academic strength, weakness and learning style in order to create the ideal strategy for success. The assessment is extremely thorough. Field Trips: Most of the students who attend the Los Angeles Mission are in need of love and encouragement. As part of the learning experience, we offer programs so students can attend social recreation such as museums, art galleries and sport events. Physical Education: Prolonged drug and alcohol abuse results in extensive physical deterioration. The Urban Training Institute’s physical education courses provide a structured program in which all UTI students participate. P.E. classes are the weight room and gymnasium. Intramural team sports, involvement in city leagues and running the L.A Marathon are highlights of this program. Spiritual Life Studies: Christianity is relational. Students are encouraged to develop their relationship with God through personal faith in Christ Jesus. Spiritual life studies contribute to character development and spiritual growth.

"I'm so grateful to Anne Douglas for giving me another chance to save my life." - Wanda Dilworth, Anne Douglas Center graduate The Los Angeles Mission’s Women’s outreach was named the Anne Douglas Center for Women in recognition of Mrs. Kirk Douglas’ long-standing compassionate generosity to the homeless. “If I had but one wish, I think becoming a recognized patron of homeless men and women would be it. I hope together we will be able to alleviate their plight entirely.” - Anne Douglas December 20, 1990 Shattered Lives Women arrive at our door shattered, drained of emotions, suicidal, alone…and in desperate need of help. Their lives are filled with incidents of physical, sexual and emotional abuse that have left a wake of broken family relationships and chaos. Tired and no longer able to manage their own lives, they are seeking a way to make a change. At the Anne Douglas Center, they are welcomed and offered the chance to transform their lives and regain their dignity. Breaking the Cycle During the 12-month intensive Rehabilitation Program, women are provided shelter, meals and clothing as they are equipped with skills and taught how to accept responsibility that prepares them for a life of independence. These women are taught how to break the cycle of self-destruction. They learn not to rely on drugs, alcohol, bad relationships and other destructive behaviors so common in their lives. Gradually they come to see themselves as women of value, no longer unloved and isolated. They reclaim their self-respect – or affirm it for the first time. The Process of Relational Rehabilitation The Los Angeles Mission’s Anne Douglas Center for women believes in rehabilitation of the spirit, body and mind. Enriching the spirit through: • Spiritual Counseling • Spiritual Self-worth • Chapel Services Enriching the body through: • Exercise Program • Recreation and Arts Curriculum Self-Defense Training Enriching the mind through: • Academics Career Skills Development Examples of job preparation include the following skills that can be learned at the Anne Douglas Center: • Administrative Assistant • Receptionist • Food Services • Medical Clinic Assistant • Special Events Planning • Housing Restoration… Ensuring Successful Transition Women who complete a year in the Urban Training Institute recovery program may continue in a 12-month Transition Program designed to complete the process of preparing them to re-enter the mainstream of society. The Action Plan for the Transition Program includes: • Job Readiness • Job Placement Assistance • Transitional Housing • Money Management • Family Ministry • Higher Education • Referral Service Support Services The services, as follows, are available to women participating in both the Rehabilitation and Transition Programs: • Family Reunification • Liaison Assistance for Social and Legal Proceedings • Medical, Dental, and Chiropractic Services • Alumnae Services Meeting Needs Through Our Day Services • Nutritious Meals • Clothing • Showers • Personal Hygiene Products • Children’s Clothing • Infant Supplies • Toys • English-as-a Second Language • Free Community Clinic Medical Assistance - See more at:

Changing Spirits Recovery Program is a social model, community based 180-day residential program targeting Native American men, over 18 years of age, who have a desire to recover from alcohol or drug addiction. Changing Spirits Recovery Program is a Non-profit program that does not discriminate or deny services based on race, ethnic background, religion, sexual orientation, national origin, or the ability to pay. This program can be funded through the Toiyabe Indian Health Project. Contact Sheila Turner at Toiyabe for assistance at 760-873-6394. Changing Spirits Treatment program also has a transitional living program on site.  The rent for the transitional living program would be $550.00 per month and they would be required if sentenced to 360 days of treatment to attend outpatient services for another 6 months.  Once the client enters the residential treatment, they are enrolled in General Assistance which goes to the program.  Once in transitional living the GR is transferred directly to the client to help with rent and food.  The concept is that they are transitioning to a less restrictive environment, but will still be required to attend program services.  The director did state that they prefer clients who have completed Changing Spirits residential program to attend the Transitional Living program so the likelihood of having bed space is certain.

the buddy system for the next 60 days. After 30 days you are expected to look for a
job so you can earn your own way in the ministry, unless you are on disability or have other means of support. Your rent is expected to be paid first before

Free Rehab in California

If you have developed a dependence on alcohol or drugs and are seeking treatment and are without funds, there is still hope. However, for those seeking a Free Rehab in California for addiction, there are many things that need to be considered. The first thing to note is the question as to where the treatment facility gets their funding.

There are primarily three different types of Free rehabs in California

State Funded Rehab in California:These types of facilities receive some form of funding through grants or subsidies from the government at a state or county level. Often these types of treatment programs are closely connected to a court system and can have a high degree of “court mandated” clients. These types of treatment centers also may have a lengthy waiting list, especially during the winter months.

Vocational Rehab in California: These types of facilities receive their funding through the clients working for the treatment program. Often these programs also have a heavy Christian component in conjunction with the work element. Salvation Army and Teen Challenge are two examples of a Vocational Rehab.

Donation based rehab: These types of facilities often have the majority, if not all, or their funding provided by an individual or organization. This also may include a private rehab facility that may have a “scholarship” bed, although today scholarshipped beds are almost non-existant in private care facilities. Overall, donation based rehabs are extremely rare, unless supported fully by a connected church or organization.

It is also important to understand that, depending on the severity of the alcohol or drug abuse, someone seeking alcohol treatment may also need a medically supervised detox in California prior to treatment. Sometimes finding a Free Detox in California is more difficult than finding a free rehab.

Do they have Detox in a Free Rehab in California?

A Free Rehab in California may have a withdrawal component, but it almost never has a medically supervised detox, which means that medications are not prescribed to alleviate some of the discomforts involved in withdrawal. In the case that there is a medical danger in withdrawal, the treatment facility will usually refer the client to hospital first.

It is important to note, that for clients looking for a free medically supervised detox for opiates such as Heroin, Vicodin, Oxycontin or Methadone, they will probably not receive medications to alleviate the discomfort.
