Long Island Teen Challenge is a 14-month residential program for hurting young men, ladies, and married couples, 17-years and older caught in the vicious cycle of drug and alcohol abuse and other life controlling problems. Our mission is to help people become mentally sound, emotionally balanced, socially adjusted, physically well and spiritually alive. Through their new lives, they are able to embrace their purpose and fulfill their destiny. Our philosophy is that God can provide the total cure for the whole person. This principle, fully integrated into every aspect of our program, has given LITC its international credibility and 75% cure rate since 1958.
