Freedom House Program Description
Teen Challenge programs for women provide a one-year residential training program for women ages 18 and over with life-controlling problems, primarily in the areas of: alcohol abuse, eating disorders, drug abuse, depression, sexual abuse and promiscuity While in the Teen Challenge program, each woman will learn how to turn to God and be honest with herself. She will experience inner healing and learn to trust others again. We have designed a program to help break the cycles of failure, substance abuse and addiction by focusing on coping skills, social and relational skills and work ethics.
Our program includes:
individual and group studies
work ethics responsibility training
domestic skills and job training
Bible study and chapel services
ministry outreach recreation
The rewards of the program can include restored families, healthy relationships and becoming a hard-working, productive and successful member of society. Women can live free from the expectations of the "American culture" and become the woman God designed you to be.
Teen Challenge International divides its ministry into five phases. Oklahoma Teen Challenge Freedom House for Women is accredited by the national office to operate one or more of these phases.
Phase I: Basic Confrontational Evangelism
The purpose and method of this phase is to conduct evangelism outreach directly to the people through street meetings, jail and prison service, help-line, substance abuse programs, drop-in counseling, literature distribution and other outreach efforts.
Phase II: Short-term Residential Care, Crisis Intervention & Referral
Persons with life-controlling problems are provided a place to stay long enough to meet the immediate crisis, to receive a clear witness of the gospel, and to evaluate whether they need or desire the long-term discipleship training offered by Teen Challenge.
Phase III: Induction This is the beginning of the discipleship process.
It involves three / four months of Bible Study and character development. Individuals are provided opportunities to develop new habits and attitudes. Students graduate from this phase and go on to phase IV.
Phase IV: Training Center
The individual is now prepared to start the nine-month residential phase. The student continues to develop Christian growth by strengthening attitudes and habits in commitment, daily living, honesty, responsibility, and respect. Emphasis is placed on good work habits. Wholesome relationships with family, the local church and community are stressed.
Re-entry commonly initiated by another phase, this phase often involves one or more of the following: temporary housing, personal and family counseling, assistance in finding suitable employment and church fellowship.
