JESUS is the Answer!
So what's the problem?
In Teen Challenge it's called a "life-controlling problem." What is that? Almost anything can be: pride, food, power, sex, love of money, drugs, alcohol, sports, depression, gambling, fame, fear... anything that masters our lives.
The Apostle Paul wrote, "I will not be mastered by anything." Yet people, Christians and non-Christians, struggle with seemingly unbeatable problems in their lives every day. Just watch the evening news.
These are some of the more obvious life-controlling problems, but other life-controlling problems often lie hidden beneath the surface, perhaps not as apparent as drugs and alcohol, but just as devastating. That is why anyone can be affected: people in our own neighborhood, church, or home.
Most of these people feel like they are facing their problems alone. Even though they are surrounded by friends and family members who may really care about them, it seems that no one knows how to help. There doesn't seem to be anyone who can break them out of the seemingly hopeless trap they are in.
Teen Challenge offers a solution: put your trust in the once-crucified-and-resurrected and now-and-for-ever-living Jesus Christ!

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
“Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
“For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
– Jesus Matthew 11:28-30 (NIV)
