New Life Centres
Where is the New Life Centre?
The New Life Centre (NLC) is Teen Challenge QLD’s (TCQ) residential rehabilitation Centre, based in a peaceful rural setting in Toowoomba, Queensland.
Who's it for?
TCQ operates two separate facilities for both men and women.
The NLC caters for men aged 18-45 years. The NLC caters for women aged 18-39 years.
Does it work?
Teen Challenge has 50 years of experience and a high success rate for those who complete the program. TCQ takes a holistic approach to address alcohol and drug addiction issues. Our services are informed by current best practice and operate within a Christian values framework.
We provide a safe and supportive environment where men and women can focus on their recovery and move towards a positive, addiction-free future. We aim to meet the needs of the whole person; not only dealing with the addiction but also targeting the underlying issues that contribute to a person's addiction. Participants are referred to as ‘students’ or ‘clients’, and the program is voluntary in nature.
"I got to a turning point in my life when I was sleeping on a concrete floor at the back of an abandoned house and I thought I’m sick of doing this and so I thought I might give Teen Challenge a go. Since coming here Teen Challenge has done heaps for me, they’ve helped me so much. They’ve helped me to work on myself, the case workers have been great, they’ve given me a lot of time and put a lot of effort into my recovery." - Dylan
