Licensed Professional Counselor

Adult & Teen Challenge MidSouth (ATCM) is a Christ-centered, residential recovery program for men and women, 18-50, with life-controlling addictions. A study of program graduates shows a recidivism rate that is one-sixth the national average. The difference is a relationship with Jesus Christ they never knew was possible.

Are you searching for something more than just a “job”? Do you believe that God has something greater for you than just drawing a paycheck? Do you want to see your life making a difference in the lives of those bound by addictions? Do you want to experience a self-rewarding career and work with a dynamic and dedicated Team? If so, we may have just the position for you.

Adult & Teen Challenge is not a job – it is a ministry – and we are looking for a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) who knows they have a call of God on their lives. The LPC at ATCM has the opportunity to see lives changed, set free from the bondage of addiction, and transformed into world changers.
