Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch provides a safe, structured, and nurturing environment in which addicted boys from Arkansas advance academically and behaviorally. They will also learn valuable life skills, develop character, and create healthy relationships with others. Addiction therapy here aims to target underlying reasons for the re-occurrence of inappropriate behaviors and addictions. We utilize 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 drive and positivity.
For most students 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 handling the ordinary stresses of life. Once 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 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 need for 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 Fort Smith, Arkansas, it is best for a boy to be removed from his negative peer influences in his home city, so the distance is a plus. At this program, 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 initial residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been offering hope to families for over 40 years. We believe that centering our program on Christ explains why countless teenage boys have discovered deliverance from addictions here, even where other rehab programs failed.
After graduation from our Christian rehab, boys return home followed by a strong aftercare program to continue their positive growth. Aftercare is included without added cost in our normal tuition package.
Academics mean much to us, because we think education holds the key to future success. In our accredited private Christian school, students work on courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to assist 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 more. After leaving our rehab, boys may choose to continue their classwork from home.
Many boys have turned their lives around and have gone on to make a difference for Christ after graduating from Teen Challenge Ranch. We would like to talk with you to see if our boarding school is a good fit for your son. Whether you decide on Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, a rehab and sober school in Fort Smith, Arkansas, or another alternative, we hope your family can experience the transformation that Christ can bring.
