Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch provides a safe, structured, and nurturing environment in which addicted boys from Illinois grow 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 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 acting 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 various illicit drugs. In any case, they have surrendered to unhealthy and extremely harmful methods of coping with life. Drugs or alcohol and adrenaline-seeking activities 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 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 boy is struggling with drugs and/or behavioral issues, we can help turn his life around. Although we are not located in Harwood Heights, Illinois, 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.
Since we became the first residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been serving families more than 40 years. We feel that centering our program on Christ explains why so many teenage boys have found deliverance from addictions here, even where other rehab programs didn’t work.
After successfully finishing our Christian rehab, boys go 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 think education strongly supports future success. Within our accredited private Christian school, boys 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 may also study basic vocational skills such as woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, welding, basic automotive, and more. After leaving our rehab, boys may decide to continue their classwork from home.
Many young men have put their lives back on track and have gone on to make an impact for Christ after successfully finishing Teen Challenge Ranch. We would like to talk with you to help you decide if our boarding school is a good option for your son. Whether you select Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, a rehab and sober school in Harwood Heights, Illinois, or another option, we hope your family can experience the restoration that Christ can bring.
