One young man knows he wouldn't still be alive if it weren't for Adult & Teen Challenge. 

At the age of 24, Noah was struggling with his addictions to alcohol, cocaine, and opioids, on top of his sexual addictions. 

"I was extremely depressed for a long time until I met my girlfriend," says Noah. "I then began to depend on her to find happiness. We broke up and I became even more depressed to the point of being self-destructive and suicidal."

Noah shares that he continued to do things that he knew could hurt or even kill him. 

"I would not have lasted another day if I had not come into Adult and Teen Challenge."

Noah's faith grew exponentially as he journeyed through the ATC long-term program. 

"I knew I had to get help and turn to God, as there was no one else to depend on. I have found joy, happiness, and peace with God and no longer need to depend on substances or toxic relationships with women to find these things."

Going through the ATC program has given Noah a whole new lease on life. 

"Adult and Teen Challenge have taught me to put my trust in God and to fully surrender to him as I was losing everything before coming into the program."
