Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch provides a protective, structured, and nurturing environment in which addicted boys from Missouri grow academically and behaviorally. They will also learn valuable life skills, build character, and develop healthy relationships with others. Addiction therapy here aims to identify underlying reasons for the repetition 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 behaving with a new sense of drive and positivity.
For most students who enter our program, harmful actions are driven by the substances they are abusing, from alcohol and marijuana to various 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 dealing with the ordinary stresses of life. After the addictions are under control, we introduce each boy to new, better 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 grab ahold of 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 substances and/or behavioral troubles, we can help turn his life around. Although we are not located in Independence, Missouri, 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 build 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 serving families for more than 40 years. We feel that centering our program on Christ is the reason so many teenagers are finding deliverance from addictions here, even where other rehab programs failed.
After graduation from our Christian rehab, boys go back home followed by a strong aftercare program to continue the forward momentum. Aftercare is included without added cost in our normal tuition package.
Academics mean much to us, because we believe education forms a foundation for future success. In our accredited private Christian school, students work 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 more. After graduating from our rehab, boys may choose to continue their classwork at 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 love to talk with you to determine if our boarding school is a good fit for your son. Whether you select Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, a rehab and sober school in Independence, Missouri, or another alternative, we hope your family can experience the restoration that Christ can bring.
