Teen Challenge New England and New Jersey Philosophy

Teen Challenge Maine was established in 2007 to reach, rescue and restore young men and at-risk youth from the grip of drug and alcohol addiction by the power of Jesus Christ. Using Biblical principles as a guide for healthy and sober living, the long-term residential rehab teaches young men how to cease addictive and behaviors and become productive members of society. Located on a scenic 180 acre campus with an impressive view of New Hampshire’s White Mountains, Teen Challenge Maine also includes a working farm operated by the residents, an activity which plays an essential part in the treatment methodology overall.

Areas of Specialization

  • Holistic Therapy
    Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.

  • Aftercare Support
    Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.

Twelve years of drug addiction drove Jacqueline Strothoff to participate in every rehabilitation effort presented to her as she desperately struggled to overcome her addiction. Those years were devastating as she was committed several times to psychiatric hospitals and incarcerated for criminal activities. During one of those stays in a psychiatric hospital in 1974, Jacqui experienced a life-changing encounter with the Lord Jesus Christ. Upon her release, she entered New Life For Girls, a one year Christian residential discipleship program in Pennsylvania. From there, she enrolled in a ministerial training program at Rev. David Wilkerson’s Twin Oaks Leadership Academy in Texas, where she met her husband, Bob. They spent the next several years working in Teen Challenge centers across the country and then settled in Springfield, Missouri where Jacqui earned a degree in social work from Southwest Missouri State College. Jacqui has ably served the Lord in a variety of capacities in churches and ministries. Her life and testimony has impacted thousands of hurting lives. Today that impact continues as she serves Teen Challenge New England and New Jersey in a senior leadership role. Jacqui is the proud mother of two adult children and the ecstatic grandmother of two adorable grandchildren.
