Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch provides a protective, structured, and nurturing environment in which addicted boys from Iowa advance academically and behaviorally. They will also learn practical life skills, develop character, and develop healthy relationships with others. Addiction therapy here seeks to identify underlying reasons for the re-occurrence 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 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 surrendered to unhealthy and extremely harmful methods of dealing with life. Substances and adrenaline-seeking behaviors 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, healthy ways of coping with difficulties.
Character traits such as honesty, integrity, and compassion are also taught to the boys and modeled 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 removed and they will be free to resume lives as happy, productive members of society.
If your boy is struggling with drugs and/or behavioral issues, we can help turn his life around. Although we are not located in Davenport, Iowa, 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 overcome his struggles and develop healthy relationships. For more information about this Christian rehab for teens, located in Arkansas, please contact us.
As the initial residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been helping families for over 40 years. We feel that centering our program on Christ is the reason countless young men are finding deliverance from addictions here, even where other rehab programs failed.
After completion of our Christian rehab, boys return home accompanied by a strong aftercare program to help them continue to grow. Aftercare is included without added cost in our normal tuition package.
Education means much to us, because we find that education holds the key to 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 need it. Credits earned can easily transfer to private or public schools at home. Boys may also study basic vocational skills for example 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 boys have put their lives back on track and have gone on to make a difference for Christ after graduating from Teen Challenge Ranch. We would be happy to talk with you to see if our boarding school is a good fit for your son. Whether you choose Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, a rehab and sober school in Davenport, Iowa, or another alternative, we hope your family can experience the restoration that Christ can bring.
