What we do

Dedicated to change.

#NotEvenOnce® Projects are driven by Teen Challenge Australia, specialists in Alcohol and other Drug Rehabilitation, through our faith-based rehabilitation programs. We've existed in Australia since 1971 and have helped thousands and thousands of people gain freedom from addiction and become amazing, positive contributing members of society and restored families and relationships in the process.

We are uniquely placed as the ambulance at the bottom of the addiction cliff to understand exactly why people end up there.  

Daily we receive heartbreaking calls for help and enough is enough.

We are incredibly passionate about families and individuals not being destroyed and so our #NotEvenOnce® Projects are turning 68% of young people seeing one of our seminars that are already or likely to use illicit substance, away from the drug world and its destructive lifestyle.

 It works because our hearts are so engaged in making a difference and we know what we are talking about.

All Teen Challenge centres in Australia are faith-based organisations, we respect the secular environment of state schools, all our #NotEvenOnce® programs are secular unless requested to deliver a non-secular version within non-secular environments.
