Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch provides a safe, structured, and nurturing environment in which addicted boys from Illinois advance academically and behaviorally. They will also learn practical life skills, develop character, and create healthy relationships with others. Addiction therapy here seeks to target underlying reasons for the repetition of damaging behaviors and addictions. We utilize adventure-based therapy, a proven curriculum, and ongoing individual and group addiction counseling. As a result of such 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 actions 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 coping with life. Substances and adrenaline-seeking activities have become the boy’s coping mechanism for handling the ordinary rigors of life. After the addictions are under control, we introduce each boy to new, better ways of coping with difficulties.
Character traits such as honesty, integrity, and compassion are also taught to the boys and demonstrated 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 obsession with 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 Addison, Illinois, 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 assisting families for over 40 years. We feel that centering our program on Christ explains why numerous teenagers have found deliverance from addictions here, even where other rehab programs didn’t work.
After completion of our Christian rehab, boys return home accompanied by a strong aftercare program to continue the forward momentum. Aftercare is included without added cost in our normal tuition package.
Academics mean much to us, because we find that education forms a foundation for future success. In our accredited private Christian school, students complete courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to aid those who are struggling. Credits earned can easily transfer to private or public schools at home. Boys can also learn basic vocational skills such as woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, welding, basic automotive, and others. After completing our rehab, boys may opt to continue their classwork at home.
Many young men have turned their lives around and have gone on to make an impact for Christ after completing the program at Teen Challenge Ranch. We would love to talk with you to help you decide if our boarding school is a good fit for your son. Whether you decide on Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, a rehab and sober school in Addison, Illinois, or another option, we hope your family can experience the restoration that Christ can bring.
