Probably everyone has been touched by addiction in one way or another. Whether it's a friend or relative or in a personal experience, it seems to be all around us. And if you're looking, there is help available. One such place is, Adult & Teen Challenge. Although it's a national organization with centers all over the US and the world, there's actually one right here in Estacada.

Started as Teen Challenge by a country preacher, David Wilkerson, in 1958, this organization has been a lifeline for not only teens, but seemingly anyone and everyone that is suffering from addictions. Over their 60 years, they've expanded into 200 locations in the US and over 1000 around the world. With a vast outreach from coffee houses, women's centers and radio broadcasts, Adult & Teen Challenge centers have been recognized by industry leaders all the way up to the President of the United States. In 1999 a Northwestern University Study of the three largest Teen Challenges found 86% drug-free after three years. In 2018 they updated their name to "Adult & Teen Challenge USA" to better reflect the populations they serve.

If you or a loved one are suffering from substance or sexual abuse and would like some help, please reach out today. Please visit www.teenchallengeusa.org or call 971-212-8490. You could also attend their Hope Gala 2019 "Relentless", next Friday, May 31st 7pm at the Oregon Golf Club, 25700 SW Petes Mountain Rd West Linn, OR 97068. For tickets and more information please visit; Portland-gala.tcpnw.com.

On another note, remember all who have served for our freedoms in this country as well as loved ones we've lost along the way during this Memorial Day Weekend.
