Hundreds and thousands of lives have come to an end, either because of an overdose or suicide caused by substance addiction. The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) found that over a quarter of a billion people aged 15-64 have used illegal drugs (UNODC, 2019), a multiple-stage suicide. The main purpose of this research is to assess the impact of the Teen Challenge Programme in recovering addicts and highlighting elements influencing the success of the programme 13 years after it was launched in Romania. The main question of the research is, How do spiritual practices within the Teen Challenge Programme influence the recovery of addicts? In this study, we used the case study method, and a research tool consisting in a semi-structured interview guide. The research sample consisted in 7 male addicts who were beneficiaries of the Teen Challenge Organisation, and recovered through this programme.
