We provide a protective, structured, and nurturing environment in which addicted boys from Massachusetts grow academically and behaviorally. They will also learn practical life skills, develop character, and develop healthy relationships with others. Addiction therapy here seeks to identify underlying reasons for the re-occurrence of damaging behaviors and addictions. We utilize 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 students who enter our program, harmful behaviors are driven by the substances they are abusing, from alcohol and marijuana to various illicit drugs. In any case, they have surrendered to unhealthy and extremely harmful methods of dealing with life. Substances and adrenaline-seeking activities have become the boy’s coping mechanism for handling the ordinary stresses of life. Once the addictions are under control, we introduce each boy to new, healthy ways of coping with difficulties.
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 grab ahold of these concepts, the need for drugs and alcohol will be removed and they will be able to resume lives as happy, productive members of society.
If your teen is struggling with drugs and/or behavioral troubles, we can help turn his life around. Although we are not located in , Massachusetts, it is best for a boy to be separated from his negative peer influences in his home city, so the distance is a plus. At this facility, he will learn how to overcome his struggles and develop healthy relationships. For more information about this Christian rehab for teens, located in Arkansas, please contact us.
As the very first residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been offering hope to families for upwards of 40 years. We feel that centering our program on Christ explains why numerous young men have discovered deliverance from addictions here, even where other rehab programs didn’t work.
After completion of our Christian rehab, boys go home followed by a strong aftercare program to help them continue to grow. Aftercare is included without added cost in our normal tuition package.
Education means a lot to us, because we think education forms a foundation for future success. Within our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, students 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 like woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and more. After graduating from our rehab, boys may prefer to continue their classwork at home through the online Alpha Omega Academy that we use.
We would like to talk with you to determine if our program is a good option 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 Massachusetts.

Massachusetts , officially the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, is a U.S. state in the New England region of the northeastern United States of America. It is bordered by Rhode Island and Connecticut to the south, New York to the west, and Vermont and New Hampshire to the north; at its east lies the Atlantic Ocean. Massachusetts is the 7th least extensive, but the 14th most populous and the 3rd most densely populated of the 50 United States. The state features two separate metropolitan areas the eastern Boston metropolitan area and the western Springfield metropolitan area. Approximately two thirds of the state’s population lives in Greater Boston, most of which is either urban or suburban. Western Massachusetts features one urban area the Knowledge Corridor along the Connecticut River and a mix of college towns and rural areas. Massachusetts is the most populous of the six New England states and has the US’s sixth highest GDP per capita.
Massachusetts has played a significant historical, cultural, and commercial role in American history. Plymouth was the site of the colony founded in 1620 by the Pilgrims, passengers of the Mayflower. Harvard University, founded in 1636, is the oldest institution of higher learning in the United States. In 1692, the towns surrounding Salem experienced one of America’s most infamous cases of mass hysteria, the Salem Witch Trials. In the 18th century, the Protestant First Great Awakening, which swept the Atlantic world, originated from the pulpit of Northampton, Massachusetts preacher Jonathan Edwards. In the late 18th century, Boston became known as the “Cradle of Liberty” for the agitation there that led to the American Revolution and the independence of the United States from Great Britain. In 1777, General Henry Knox founded the Springfield Armory, which during the Industrial Revolution catalyzed numerous important technological advances, including interchangeable parts. In 1786, Shays’ Rebellion, a populist revolt by Western Massachusetts farmers, led directly to the United States Constitutional Convention. Before the American Civil War, Massachusetts was a center for the temperance, transcendentalist, and abolitionist movements. In 1837, Mount Holyoke College, the United States’ first college for women, was opened in the Connecticut River Valley town of South Hadley. In the late 19th century, the (now) Olympic sports of basketball and volleyball were invented in the Western Massachusetts cities of Springfield and Holyoke, respectively. In 2004, Massachusetts became the first U.S. state to legally recognize same-sex marriage as a result of the decision of the state’s Supreme Judicial Court. The state has contributed many prominent politicians to national service, including members of the Adams family and of the Kennedy family.
Originally dependent on fishing, agriculture, and trade, Massachusetts was transformed into a manufacturing center during the Industrial Revolution. During the 20th century, the state’s economy shifted from manufacturing to services. In the 21st century, Massachusetts is a leader in higher education, health care technology, high technology, and financial services.
“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.”
