Teen Challenge Ranch Helps Boys With Conduct Disorder

The Effects of Conduct Disorder on Your Son

We can treat your son if he’s struggling with Conduct Disorder, a condition of recurring and persistent violations of social norms and the rights of others.  Does he display physical or verbal antagonism, bullying people and pets, dishonesty, truancy, destructive behavior or thievery?  The term refers to the distinction between a boy’s “typical” acting out and major misbehavior.  

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

momandboyIf he doesn’t get help, your boy might find himself in trouble with school or legal authorities.  He might be found responsible for behavioral actions that he is unable to control.  

Treatment primarily centers on altering behavior patterns that bolster bad behavior.  Unlike other disorders, Conduct Disorder therapy can typically include the parents as well as the child.  There is no one distinctly acceptable resolution to Conduct Disorder, but many programs include training parents to more effectively discipline and reward good behavior in an attempt to end the cycle of bad actions leading to more bad actions.

Conduct Disorder is thought to be a possible precursor to Antisocial Personality Disorder.  Studies have indicated a preliminary link between different brain functions and lowered levels of compassion shown by those experiencing conduct disorders.

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

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.
