We provide a protective, structured, and nurturing environment in which addicted boys from Louisiana grow academically and behaviorally. They will also learn practical life skills, develop character, and create healthy relationships with others. Addiction therapy here seeks to identify underlying reasons for the re-occurrence of inappropriate behaviors and addictions. We employ adventure-based therapy, a proven curriculum, and ongoing individual and group addiction counseling. As a result of these therapies, students replace their old ways of thinking and acting with a new sense of purpose and positivity.
For most boys who enter our program, harmful behaviors are driven by the substances they are abusing, from alcohol and marijuana to harder illicit drugs. Regardless, they have given in to unhealthy and extremely harmful methods of dealing with life. Substances and adrenaline-seeking behaviors have become the boy’s coping mechanism for handling the ordinary rigors of life. Once the addictions are under control, we introduce each boy to new, healthy ways of coping with struggles.
Spiritual principles such as honesty, integrity, and compassion are also taught to the boys and modelled by peers and staff. Boys are encouraged to trust God and seek His purpose in their lives. When students embrace these concepts, the obsession with drugs and alcohol will be lifted and they will be free to resume lives as happy, productive members of society.
If your boy is struggling with drugs and/or behavioral troubles, we can help turn his life around. Although we are not located in , Louisiana, it is best for a boy to be removed from his negative peer influences in his home city, so the distance is a plus. At this facility, he will learn how to conquer his struggles and develop healthy relationships. For more information about this Christian rehab for teens, located in Arkansas, please contact us.
Since we became the first residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been bringing restoration to families for over 40 years. We feel that centering our program on Christ explains why countless young men have found deliverance from addictions here, even where other rehab programs didn’t work.
After graduation from our Christian rehab, boys go home with a strong aftercare program to continue their positive growth. Aftercare is included without added cost in our normal tuition package.
Education means a lot to us, because we find that education forms a foundation for future success. In our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, boys study on courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to assist those who need it. Credits earned can easily transfer to public or private schools at home. Boys may also study basic vocational skills such as woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and more. After leaving our rehab, boys may opt to continue their classwork at home through the online Alpha Omega Academy that we use.
We would be happy to talk with you to see if our program is the right fit for your son. Please read the rest of our website and use our inquiry form or call us today.
We are glad you chose to look at our Christian rehab for teenage boys as you search for a rehab or addiction treatment center in or around Louisiana.
|More about therapeutic schools in or near Louisiana: |
Louisiana is a state located in the southern region of the United States of America. Louisiana is the 31st most extensive and the 25th most populous of the 50 United States. Its capital is Baton Rouge and largest city is New Orleans. Louisiana is the only state in the U.S. with political subdivisions termed parishes, which are local governments equivalent to counties. The largest parish by population is East Baton Rouge Parish, and the largest by land area is Cameron Parish.
Some Louisiana urban environments have a multicultural, multilingual heritage, being so strongly influenced by an admixture of 18th century French, Spanish, Native American (Indian) and African cultures that they are considered to be somewhat exceptional in the U.S. Before the American influx and statehood at the beginning of the 19th century, the territory of current Louisiana State had been a Spanish and French colony. In addition, the pattern of development included importing numerous African slaves in the 18th century, with many from the same region of West Africa, thus concentrating their culture.
“Not only does Teen Challenge help our young people deal with their substance abuse, but is also gives our kids something to live for – a relationship with God, a healthy self-esteem, and a direction in their lives that finally leads somewhere. I sincerely appreciate your efforts to reach and rehabilitate the many young people who have, at present, no hope in life.”
Former Attorney General
“Teen Challenge changes the world one person at a time.”
Founder, Prison Fellowship
“The Teen Challenge program succeeds when all of the government programs have failed.”
“Too many young [people] have already lost their lives, and too many others have suffered serious injury for us to ignore the problems of juvenile alcohol and drug abuse. Programs such as Teen Challenge work to change young people’s lives by changing their hearts. I commend you for your work with young men who are addicted to drugs or alcohol.”
“In my opinion, Teen Challenge is doing the best all-around job of providing the kids with something meaningful in their lives. And that’s what they all need. . .I thank you for your continuing support for Teen Challenge.”
Former US Drug Czar
“Of all the drug programs reported to the Commission, the most successful is the program conducted by Teen Challenge.”
Past Director, AT&T Corporation
“Teen Challenge is one of the most successful programs in our country.”
