The Foundations of Our Center

We work extensively with adults. Most adults who arrive at our doors bring with them a tragic history of substance abuse and other life-controlling problems. At Freedom in Christ, the journey to sobriety includes attention to the spiritual needs of those who seek our help.


With a focus on the practical applications of Christian teachings, adults not only learn how to change deeply entrenched, self-destructive behavior, but to discover a new identity in Christ that makes these changes possible. Adults who come to us not only receive a holistic approach to recovery from life-controlling problems, but acquire a new value system that honors family, takes responsibility for community, cultivates a positive work ethic, and helps them become productive, healthy members of society.


El Paso was once considered the largest city in the United States without a Christ based center. In 2007, Pastor Albert (Executive Director) & Martha Ibarra (Bookkeeper) moved their family from Midland, TX, where they served on the staff of Teen Challenge Permian Basin for over 20 years, to open a residential center in El Paso, TX.  The purpose of the residential program is to enable individuals to find freedom from addictive behavior, to become socially and emotinally healthy, physically well and spiritually alive. We  operate a 12 bed Women's resedential faclitiy and a 12 bed Men's resedential facility.


Our 10-12 month long program is completely free of charge to the Men, Women and their Families. We ask that each student ready to enter the program is tired of the life they have been living and ready to make a long-term commitment to the Lord and to complete the program. The individual, family, and the entire community benefit from the services provided by Freedom in Christ Residental Centers.
