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 valuable life skills, develop character, and create healthy relationships with others. Addiction therapy here seeks to identify underlying reasons for the repetition of damaging behaviors and addictions. We employ adventure-based therapy, a proven curriculum, and continuous 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 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 coping with life. Drugs or alcohol and adrenaline-seeking behaviors have become the boy’s coping mechanism for dealing with 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 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 son is struggling with substances and/or behavioral issues, we can help turn his life around. Although we are not located in Alton, Illinois, it is ideal 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 conquer 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 bringing restoration to families for more than 40 years. We feel that centering our program on Christ is the reason so many teenagers are finding deliverance from addictions here, even where other rehab programs failed.
After completion of our Christian rehab, boys go back home followed by a strong aftercare program to prevent relapse . Aftercare is included without added cost in our normal tuition package.
Education means a lot to us, because we think education is critical for future success. In our accredited private Christian school, boys 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 may also study basic vocational skills such as woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, welding, basic automotive, and more. After graduating from our rehab, boys may opt to continue their classwork at home.
Many teens have put their lives back on track and have gone on to make an impact for Christ after graduating from Teen Challenge Ranch. We would like to talk with you to help you decide if our boarding school is a good option for your son. Whether you choose Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, a rehab and sober school in Alton, Illinois, or another option, we hope your family can find the healing that Christ can bring.

Alton is a city on the Mississippi River in Madison County, Illinois, United States, about 15 miles (24 km) north of St. Louis, Missouri. The population was 27,865 at the 2010 census. It is a part of the Metro-East region of the Greater St. Louis metropolitan area in Southern Illinois. It is famous for its limestone bluffs along the river north of the city, for its role preceding and during the American Civil War, and as the hometown of Robert Wadlow, the tallest man known. It was the site of the last Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas debate in October 1858. The former state penitentiary here was used during the war to hold up to 12,000 Confederate prisoners of war.
The city has been labeled “The most haunted city in America” by paranormal enthusiasts, due to its claimed haunted hot spots, such as McPike Mansion and other structures. Most were built on foundations of stone taken from the former Civil War prison after it was abandoned. Confederate prisoners had suffered severe overcrowding, and many died during a smallpox epidemic. The city holds regular “ghost tours” and has been visited by television crews hoping to film proof of the paranormal.
