Subject: Minnesota Teen Challenge

Thank you for printing the story of a brave teen who shared about her struggle with drug addiction and an eating disorder. It's too bad that you did not print why Minnesota Teen Challenge, her fourth treatment program, is the only one that is working. Could it be because it is religiously based? The challenge to the teens (and adults) in that very successful ministry is to commit their lives to Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord.
