What is the Start Right Mentoring program?

Start Right is designed to be compatible and relevant to the mission statement and purpose of Adult and Teen Challenge. Namely, Start Right was developed by a licensed mental health counselor and an ordained minister, who understands both the faith-based and counseling aspect of the ATC program.

Start Right is a simplistic, yet statistically proven way to help mentees in with their overall emotional and mental health. Since our mission is to help people become mentally sound, emotionally balanced, socially adjusted, physically well, and spiritually alive.

Start Right provides a purposeful direction for mentors when meeting with mentees. There are [32] individual maps which could be used over a period of eight months.

Start Right is designed upon empirically supported practices within the substance abuse field today.
