During the 12 month program, participants complete progressive phases of their recovery until they gain the skills and inner strength to fully re-enter society. Don’t forget. “Recovery lasts a lifetime,” but at the point of graduation from Chad’s Hope, a life now stands transformed for the better. Also, for every individual life transformed at Chad’s Hope, the lives of countless family members and friends are positively affected as well. Children have their fathers back. Mothers have their sons back. Marriages are saved and restored. God bless all who seek help for their addiction, and all those who strive to help them.

History of Chad’s Teen Challenge of Eastern Kentucky
In 2002 a small group of concerned Christians began meeting on Saturday morning to pray about the drug problems in their county. After discussing solutions they decided to seek help from their county leaders. They attended a town hall meeting where they were able to speak to local judges, lawyers and political leaders. Everyone at the meeting agreed that the drug problems in Clay County was destroying the community and the lives of families that live there. At this time they estimated 1 death a month from drug related issues. That night the plans were given out to form a committee representing Christians and citizens who wanted to fight against drugs. These two groups eventually became known as Christians for a Drug Free Clay County.
