Answer

NDTC is based foundationally on a literal interpretation of the Protestant Bible. We believe that applying the principles of Scripture to a person’s life will enrich their life and provide them with the tools to overcome the powers of addiction.

No, our residential twelve-month program is open to adult men and women 18 years and older.

Yes, approved applicants may by their own choice make a request to the court to be sentenced to NDTC. This is usually accomplished through the defense attorney, plea agreement with the State’s Attorney or the defendant directly asking the judge during the sentencing process.

The length of the program (12-18 months) along with the Christian environment and teachings greatly assists people in breaking the bondage of drug and alcohol abuse. When a person finds a relationship with God everything changes. New priorities, attitudes, reactions, plans and goals in life all add up to real change. New found life in Christ and newly learned biblical principles for daily living replace the old lifestyle and its underlying behaviors and attitudes.

Generally, all individuals who are addicted to drugs and/or alcohol tend to be dual-diagnosis. North Dakota Teen Challenge is open to assist all who are able to function in a live-in setting. Those that have severe limitations are referred to organizations where they can find the care required for their special needs.
