About Pennsylvania Adult & Teen Challenge
Since 1958, when our founder, the Reverend David Wilkerson, began intervening in the lives of addicted young people, PAATC has been at the forefront of addiction recovery. By 1962, Rev. Wilkerson had expanded his project in scope to include vocational training as well as treatment. This expansion coincided with moving the operation to a 16-acre farm in Rehrersburg, PA. That farm, which many refer to as “God’s Mountain” remains our main campus to this day.
Today, Pennsylvania Adult & Teen Challenge offers faith-based, comprehensive treatment programs to men and women. We are proud to offer highly regarded residential treatment programs at our Rehrersburg, PA; Western PA; Philadelphia, PA campuses. For individuals seeking help who cannot commit to a residential program, we offer outpatient programs through the Naaman Center with locations in Elizabethtown, Quarryville, Elizabethville, and two in Lancaster, PA. All in all, we currently offer residential programs at three locations throughout PA. Through the Naaman Center, we provide outpatient help at seven sites.
