Teen Challenge New Hampshire Philosophy

Teen Challenge New England & New Jersey’s New Hampshire Men’s Campus utilizes a faith-based approach to inspire lifelong recovery in men 18 years of age and above. Individuals struggling with drug and/or alcohol abuse are invited to participate in a rigorous, compassionate addiction treatment program that engages the word of Christ to produce enduring transformation. Through spiritual, academic and vocational training, Teen Challenge ensures that each participant receives the necessary skills to succeed after treatment.

Areas of Specialization

  • 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.

  • 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.

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.

Review by Rehabs.com Contributors


One of eight Teen Challenge facilities throughout the northeast, Teen Challenge New Hampshire is a 15-month Christian residential treatment program for adult men struggling with drug and alcohol addiction. Men are encouraged to detox before entering the residential program.


The Teen Challenge program in New Hampshire teaches practical biblical values like integrity, self-control, and compassion. Over the course of their 15-month stay, men develop essential life skills designed to help them become reliable family members and employees.

Combining personal studies, class lectures, chapel services, and vocational training, the program provides men with ample opportunities to develop healthy thinking patterns and positive lifestyle changes. Men also earn their GED (if they haven’t already) and work closely with staff in setting realistic goals for life after rehab.

Upon successful completion of the 15-month program, men may enroll in Teen Challenge’s state-certified apprenticeship program, where they’re given opportunity to develop a skillset in a field of their choice. The six-month apprenticeship provides men with dormitory style housing and a small stipend.


While there is no specific information about staff credentials for this location, staff at other Teen Challenge facilities are drawn from the broad community of alumni and are, therefore, familiar with the facility's approach.


There is currently no information provided by the facility regarding its living arrangements and related offerings.


Rehabs.com has not yet received any reviews from this facility’s alumni, affiliated friends or family members, or staff.

Teen Challenge of New Hampshire does, however, have a near-perfect average rating of 4.8 out of five stars from 35 Facebook users to date, mostly family members, as well as three five-star ratings on Google.[1][2] “This place is the only rehab program that worked for me!” exclaimed proud alum Ryan. “I am not perfect but this place changed my life through gods grace!"


According to its website, Teen Challenge programs are privately funded by individuals, churches, businesses, and foundations. The program does ask family members to contribute, if possible, to help underwrite programming costs.
