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, build character, and develop healthy relationships with others. Addiction therapy here aims to identify underlying reasons for the repetition of inappropriate 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 boys 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 surrendered 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 struggles.
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 free to resume lives as happy, productive members of society.
If your son is struggling with drugs and/or behavioral issues, we can help turn his life around. Although we are not located in Chicago, 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 program, he will learn how to overcome his struggles and build healthy relationships. For more information about this Christian rehab for teens, located in Arkansas, please contact us.
As the first residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been bringing restoration to families for upwards of 40 years. We believe that centering our program on Christ is the reason countless teenage boys are finding deliverance from addictions here, even where other rehab programs failed.
After successfully finishing 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.
Academics mean a great deal to us, because we believe education forms a foundation for future success. While enrolled in our accredited private Christian school, boys study on courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to help those who are struggling. Credits earned can easily transfer to public or private schools at home. Boys may also study basic vocational skills for example woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, welding, basic automotive, and others. After graduating from our rehab, boys may decide to continue their classwork from home.
Many boys have turned their lives around and have gone on to make a difference for Christ after completing the program at Teen Challenge Ranch. We would love to talk with you to see if our boarding school is a good option for your son. Whether you select Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, a rehab and sober school in Chicago, Illinois, or another alternative, we hope your family can find the healing that Christ can bring.
