Christ-Centered Adventure-Based Therapy for Teenage Boys

Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch was the very first Teen Challenge® therapeutic boarding school for teenage boys. We are now a licensed treatment facility with private bedrooms for the boys, which we believe is important. Our energetic therapists and caring staff encourage the boys to apply appropriate solutions to life’s problems. We endeavor to help troubled boys become mentally sound and drug-free for a lifetime, not just for the short time they are on our campus.  Our extensive Aftercare Program ensures your boy’s ongoing success, entailing an extra six months of support, training and encouragement and a visit to the boy’s home, plus help in finding local resources for the parent and boy.

If nothing else is working for your boy today, enrolling him in our residential program may be absolutely the right choice and the best chance for helping him before he becomes an out of control adult. Our program is designed to help your boy when:

boarding school His behavior is dangerous and out of control
troubled teen school Counseling and other outpatient treatments aren’t working
school for boys His problems are persistent or even worsening despite promises to change
boarding school Inappropriate behaviors are placing his (or your) health or life at risk
boys ranch He is involved in illicit drugs, non-prescribed meds, huffing, or alcohol 
boarding school He was expelled from school or is facing legal problems
therapeutic ranch He is deeply entangled with friends who are a negative influence
adventure therapy He keeps returning to negative behaviors even after periods of time when he has been doing well
therapy for troubled teens Your boy’s behaviors, actions or attitudes could endanger his life and future.

We are a dual-diagnosis licensed facility, helping teenage boys recover from either or both addictions and out of control behavior while they also continue their education. Addiction recovery services and licensed drug and alcohol addiction counseling are a regular part of our treatment, since misbehavior and substance abuse usually go hand in hand. Multiple outcomes studies have proven that our recovery rate and long-term success rate for addictions tops the substance abuse treatment industry.

Adventure-Based Therapeutic

Boarding School For

Troubled Boys

Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch is for boys ages 14-17 with serious life-controlling issues or addictions.  The boys experience regular therapy-based, challenging outdoor activities including: camping, backpacking, rappelling, canoeing, swimming, hiking, and spelunking (rock climbing and cave exploration). Students are challenged physically and learn the importance of teamwork, goals and perseverance. They develop better communication skills and improve their ability to work cooperatively with others.
