Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch provides a protective, structured, and nurturing environment in which addicted boys from Illinois grow academically and behaviorally. They will also learn valuable life skills, develop character, and develop healthy relationships with others. Addiction therapy here seeks to target 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 these 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 behaviors are driven by the substances they are abusing, from alcohol and marijuana to various illicit drugs. In any case, 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. Once the addictions are under control, we introduce each boy to new, healthy 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 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 teen is struggling with drugs and/or behavioral issues, we can help turn his life around. Although we are not located in Dixon, Illinois, it is ideal for a boy to be removed 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 assisting families more than 40 years. We feel that centering our program on Christ is the reason countless teenage boys have found deliverance from addictions here, even where other rehab programs have failed.
After graduation from our Christian rehab, boys go back home with a strong aftercare program to continue the forward momentum. Aftercare is included without added cost in our normal tuition package.
Education means much to us, because we find that education strongly supports future success. Within our accredited private Christian school, students work on courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to assist those who are struggling. Credits earned can easily transfer to private or public schools at home. Boys may also study basic vocational skills like woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, welding, basic automotive, and more. After completing 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 a difference for Christ after graduating from Teen Challenge Ranch. We would be happy to talk with you to determine if our boarding school is a good option for your son. Whether you select Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, a rehab and sober school in Dixon, Illinois, or another program, we hope your family can experience the transformation that Christ can bring.
