Adult & Teen Challenge of New Mexico

At Adult & Teen Challenge of New Mexico, Women’s Campus, we believe in a holistic approach to recovery that takes into account every aspect of a person’s journey toward staying away from alcohol and drugs. Our primary goal is to provide our students with the support and tools they need to maintain their sobriety for the long term, with a special focus on finding spiritual renewal.

  • Spiritually: We understand that our students’ issues often run deeper than what’s on the surface. We believe embracing a new life in Christ can give them the strength and ability to overcome these challenges, leading to a more fulfilling and productive life.
  • Emotionally: Healing from past hurts and traumas is crucial to recovery. Biblical studies help our students grow mentally and lay the foundation for a healthier future.
  • Physically: We meet our students’ physical needs by providing a drug-free environment, nutritious food, and recreational opportunities. These elements are essential for their success in our program.
  • Socially: Our program teaches students how to navigate relationship issues with their peers and family members. They also learn to apply the positive qualities they gain in our classrooms to their everyday lives.
  • Educationally: We have created a curriculum that helps our students develop the necessary skills to become successful members of society. Our education covers various topics, including the physical and emotional aspects of overcoming addiction, setting boundaries, managing anger, developing coping skills, preventing relapses, and using cognitive tools to build a strong foundation for recovery.

Why Adult & Teen Challenge of New Mexico Should Be Your First Choice for Recovery

Adult & Teen Challenge of New Mexico

Long-term residential recovery programs, such as Adult & Teen Challenge of New Mexico’s  Women’s Campus, set themselves apart from the typical short-term options often heard about. Short-term “revolving door” programs may temporarily address addiction issues but seldom tackle the root of the problem. Consequently, addiction tends to resurface, leading individuals to return repeatedly for rehab, incurring substantial costs for themselves, their insurance providers, or their families. It’s not uncommon for some individuals to have attended 5, 10, 20, or even 30 costly short-term rehabs, all with limited success. That’s where Adult & Teen Challenge of New Mexico stands out as the ideal first choice.

So, what makes the adult addiction recovery programs at Adult & Teen Challenge so unique? We commit a year to working with each individual, a significant investment from our organization and the community. However, this extended duration is necessary to achieve the remarkable success rates we’ve seen. Our daily structure, strong sense of community, and emphasis on faith gradually guide individuals away from destructive, drug-driven thinking towards a newfound sense of purpose and a transformed way of life. This fresh sense of purpose and lifestyle leaves no room for substance abuse; addiction is replaced by self-love, peace, happiness, purpose, and excitement for a brighter future. Choose Adult & Teen Challenge of New Mexico, Women’s Center first, and embark on a path toward lasting recovery and personal fulfillment.

Can Simply Avoiding Drugs or Alcohol Solve the Real Problem?

Adult & Teen Challenge of New MexicoIn short, the answer is “No.” Staying away from drugs or alcohol for a while can help, but it’s only a temporary fix as long as the person is in a controlled environment. Once they’re back in the real world, if they haven’t dealt with their other life issues, they often go back to their addiction. This happens not because it’s a disease but because addiction is a way some people have learned to cope with their pain and emotional needs. At first, it might feel like a perfect solution.

Adult & Teen Challenge of New Mexico takes a different approach. It not only provides a safe space away from addictive substances for a longer time but also focuses on helping individuals develop a whole new way of living. Gradually, it reintegrates people into the community with a fresh sense of purpose, giving them the strength to avoid harmful behaviors and situations independently.

They get fixated on it, even if it causes problems, and they often won’t admit there’s an issue when people try to talk to them about it. This intense focus can make them do almost anything to keep up their addiction, and it can mess up not only their life but also their family, relationships, jobs, and other things.
