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, develop character, and develop healthy relationships with others. Addiction therapy here seeks to target underlying reasons for the re-occurrence 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 actions are driven by the substances they are abusing, from alcohol and marijuana to harder illicit drugs. In any case, they have given in to unhealthy and extremely damaging methods of dealing with life. Drugs or alcohol 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 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 able 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 Grayslake, 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.
Since we became the initial residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been offering hope to families for upwards of 40 years. We believe that centering our program on Christ explains why numerous young men have realized deliverance from addictions here, even where other rehab programs didn’t work.
After graduation from our Christian rehab, boys go home with a strong aftercare program to continue the forward momentum. Aftercare is included without added cost in our normal tuition package.
Education means a great deal to us, because we feel education is critical for future success. While enrolled in our accredited private Christian school, students complete courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to assist those who need it. Credits earned can easily transfer to public or private schools at home. Boys can also learn basic vocational skills like woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, welding, basic automotive, and others. After leaving our rehab, boys may decide to continue their classwork at home.
Many young men 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 help you decide if our boarding school is the right fit for your son. Whether you select Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, a rehab and sober school in Grayslake, Illinois, or another alternative, we hope your family can experience the restoration that Christ can bring.
