What We Do
Helping people overcome addiction every day
Teen Challenge - the Northern Ontario Men's Centre helps men aged 18+ to overcome addictions by developing the whole person within the context of a residential facility. Clients learn character and leadership development skills, health and life skills, and have the opportunity to acquire some vocational training.
This program also provides opportunities for clients to learn planning and decision-making skills and to learn to contribute to Teen Challenge and the community.
Within this 24-hour program up to 14 men live and grow together toward healthy lives free from addictions. Learn More
