Boys With Oppositional Defiance Disorder

The Effects of Oppositional Defiance Disorder on Your Son

We can help your son with Oppositional Defiance Disorder, or ODD, a psychiatric disorder that can emerge in childhood, in which he exhibits argumentative behaviors, regularly refusing to obey you and, to put it simply, is basically in a nasty mood (particularly around anyone in positions of authority).

Buffalo River trip 2011 021While many boys may evidence some of these characteristics at different times, if your son is intentionally troublesome or belligerent, exceptionally insubordinate, clearly angry or ill-tempered, continually in opposition with authority, malicious, maybe even blaming others for his mistakes, he might have ODD.  

How We Can Treat Your Son’s Oppositional Defiance Disorder at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch

If not treated, ODD is a trying condition, both for you and him.   It is vital to categorize his Disorder properly, in order to be certain that his actions don’t exacerbate, possibly leading to issues with powers that be, or behaviors that are harmful to himself.  

In addition to possibly having other, correctable conditions (i.e.: ADHD or depression), ODD is seen as a precursor to other, more severe problems such as conduct disorder, criminal behavior and substance abuse.

Useful behavioral therapy might focus on how to prevent problematic thoughts or behaviors from accidental reinforcement. Instead, use of positive reinforcement and praise for suitable behaviors are key to successful treatment.

Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch…Transforming Troubled Boys into Young Men of Character

The very first Teen Challenge Adventure therapeutic boarding school, we are still finding innovative new ways to help troubled boys, even after 40 years of service.  We are a Christian therapeutic boarding school and ranch; dedicated to aiding troubled boys get a new start in life.

Our approach to value education is very structured and disciplined.  Teen Challenge utilizes a faith-based, integrated model of intervention, with Biblically based methods that incorporate concepts and techniques from various psychological approaches, all presented in a loving Christian environment.  We see academic success as a key to your son’s long-term life success

Choosing a facility for your struggling child can be a crushing task, and we know how important it is for you to find the best possible placement residency. If your son’s behavior is out of control, and nothing else has worked, his problems persist or are worsening, or his behavior is placing life at risk, think about Teen Challenge and what it can mean for your child.

We endeavor to help your son become a mentally sound, academically proficient, emotionally stable, socially adjusted, physically well, and spiritually vibrant young man. We have seen even the angriest and troubled boys transform their lives and become young men of character and integrity.

And, when your son returns to you after his year at Teen Challenge, we’ll continue to be there, with our critical stage Aftercare program, geared to help with transition issues he may face, provide continued encouragement and accountability and to prevent any relapse.

Our boys are challenged physically and learn the importance of goals and perseverance.  Our therapeutic program offers your son an opportunity for a new and more productive future.  Our students reach their full potential and experience the hope and future that God intended them to have.
