ONE80TC | Teen Challenge NSW, exists to rescue lives from the devastating effects of alcohol and drug addiction, to restore hope and rebuild families. This Christ-centred organisation is more than just a drug and alcohol rehabilitation program, it’s a place where men and women find hope for the future.
It’s been an exciting year for ONE80TC with 80 salvations, 37 Baptisms in 2022 alone, and 8 of our ex-ONE80TC students choosing to stay on for our graduate program, where they volunteer with the ministry for 12 months after completing the program.
ONE80TC is now into its 4th year of running a women’s program and it’s become evident that there is a growing need for a women’s and children centre. The women that are brave enough to address their addictions miss their children and would be more inclined to stay in program if their children were near. ONE80TC has vision for the near future to open a program that caters for both women and their children.
“Before coming to One80TC I was getting myself into a lot of trouble, I was going in and out of jail and was truly struggling to stay clean and sober in the community. I was not dealing with my mother’s passing well and fell into avoiding and masking my grief with drugs and alcohol.
One80TC rescued me from the depths of addiction and supported me with facing my mother’s death sober for the first time. The faith aspect of the program has truly restored hope in my future again after what feels like a very long time.
Being here has led me back to God again, back to the church again, and has really helped me understand and realise God’s plan and purpose for my life. One80TC has also helped me establish trust again with my family and begin to mend the damage I had caused through living in addiction. I will always be grateful for the love and support I receive here.”
