The North Dakota Teen Challenge is a faith-based recovery center, dedicated to helping others overcome addiction.
The 12 month recovery center has been located in Mandan for years, but needs major renovations.
Leaders are launching a million dollar capital campaign project to purchase their building and fix it up for students.
"On a personal level, I myself have attempted suicide and was on a fast-track to total destruction..." says Matt Voorhees.
The story of how many of these singers got here isn't pretty.
"I'm 24 and I've been addicted to drugs and alcohol for ten years." says Danielle, a current student.
"I was just trying to kill the pain or kill myself, it didn't matter to me." says Mike, a current student.
An addiction consumed these men and women at one point in their lives.
Through a court-order or voluntarily, they all applied to be in this faith-based recovery center for adults.
"There's something about the love of Christ, there's something about the hope that comes with that is really foundational to a person's life." says Pastor Matt Voorhees/Executive Director.
According to their survey:
70 percent of graduates do not relapse and 90 percent of graduates now have stable employment.
"Today I have 17 months of sobriety because I have Christ in my life." says Danielle.
"Most people would not guess by looking at me that I have three felony convictions and used to cut and burn myself for hatred towards life, I share this because someone like me doesn't change easily, something radical has to happen." says Pastor Voorhees.
A one million dollar fundraising effort sounds pretty radical, but leaders want their success stories to continue in the best possible environment.
There are currently 22 North Dakota Teen Challenge students living at the center, with around 200 graduates overall.
Money raised will go toward purchasing and renovating the building they formerly shared with HIT Inc.
