Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch provides a protective, structured, and nurturing environment in which addicted boys from Minnesota grow academically and behaviorally. They will also learn valuable life skills, develop character, and create healthy relationships with others. Addiction therapy here seeks to identify underlying reasons for the re-occurrence of inappropriate behaviors and addictions. We employ adventure-based therapy, a proven curriculum, and ongoing 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 students who enter our program, harmful behaviors 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 rigors of life. Once the addictions are under control, we introduce each boy to new, better 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 embrace these concepts, the need for drugs and alcohol will be lifted and they will be able to resume lives as happy, productive members of society.
If your teen is struggling with substances and/or behavioral issues, we can help turn his life around. Although we are not located in Mankato, Minnesota, 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 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 helping families more than 40 years. We believe that centering our program on Christ explains why countless boys have realized deliverance from addictions here, even where other rehab programs have failed.
After completion of our Christian rehab, boys return home accompanied by a strong aftercare program to continue the forward momentum. Aftercare is included without added cost in our normal tuition package.
Academics mean a great deal to us, because we find that education strongly supports future success. Within our accredited private Christian school, students complete courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to assist those who are struggling. Credits earned can easily transfer to public or private schools at home. Boys can also learn basic vocational skills such as woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, welding, basic automotive, and more. After graduating from our rehab, boys may decide to continue their classwork from home.
Many boys have put their lives back on track and have gone on to make an impact for Christ after completing the program at Teen Challenge Ranch. We would love to talk with you to help you decide if our boarding school is a good fit for your son. Whether you choose Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, a rehab and sober school in Mankato, Minnesota, or another alternative, we hope your family can find the healing that Christ can bring.
