Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch provides a protective, structured, and nurturing environment in which addicted boys from Illinois advance academically and behaviorally. They will also learn valuable life skills, build character, and develop 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 continuous individual and group addiction counseling. As a result of these therapies, students replace their old ways of thinking and behaving 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 dealing with the ordinary rigors of life. Once 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 need for drugs and alcohol will be lifted and they will be able to resume lives as happy, productive members of society.
If your son is struggling with substances and/or behavioral troubles, we can help turn his life around. Although we are not located in Centralia, 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 conquer his struggles and build 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 serving families for upwards of 40 years. We feel that centering our program on Christ is the reason numerous teenagers have found deliverance from addictions here, even where other rehab programs have failed.
After completion of our Christian rehab, boys return home accompanied by a strong aftercare program to continue their positive growth. Aftercare is included without added cost in our normal tuition package.
Academics mean a lot to us, because we think education forms a foundation for future success. In our accredited private Christian school, boys study on courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to assist those who are struggling. 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, welding, basic automotive, and others. After graduating from our rehab, boys may choose to continue their classwork from home.
Many boys have put their lives back on track and have gone on to make a difference for Christ after completing the program at Teen Challenge Ranch. We would be happy to talk with you to see if our boarding school is the right fit for your son. Whether you select Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, a rehab and sober school in Centralia, Illinois, or another option, we hope your family can experience the restoration that Christ can bring.
