Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch provides a protective, structured, and nurturing environment in which addicted boys from Missouri advance academically and behaviorally. They will also learn valuable life skills, develop character, and develop healthy relationships with others. Addiction therapy here aims to identify 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 such therapies, students replace their old ways of thinking and acting 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 various illicit drugs. In any case, they have surrendered to unhealthy and extremely harmful methods of coping with life. Substances and adrenaline-seeking activities have become the boy’s coping mechanism for dealing with the ordinary rigors 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 embrace these concepts, the need for 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 troubles, we can help turn his life around. Although we are not located in Neosho, Missouri, 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 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.
As the initial residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been serving families for upwards of 40 years. We believe that centering our program on Christ explains why numerous boys are finding 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 their positive growth. Aftercare is included without added cost in our normal tuition package.
Education means a great deal to us, because we think education forms a foundation for future success. Within our accredited private Christian school, students study on courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to aid 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 opt to continue their classwork from home.
Many teens have put their lives back on track and have gone on to make a difference for Christ after completing the program at Teen Challenge Ranch. We would love to talk with you to see if our boarding school is the right fit for your son. Whether you choose Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, a rehab and sober school in Neosho, Missouri, or another alternative, we hope your family can find the healing that Christ can bring.

Neosho is the most populous city in and the county seat of Newton County, Missouri, United States. Neosho is an integral part of the Joplin, Missouri Metropolitan Statistical Area.
Located in southwestern Missouri on the southern edge of the Midwest, Neosho lies at the western edge of the Missouri Ozarks. The population was 11,835 at the time of the 2010 census.
The name “Neosho” is generally accepted to be of Native American (most likely Osage) derivation, meaning “clear, cold water”, referring to local freshwater springs. The springs attracted varying cultures of Native American inhabitants for thousands of years. It was also ideal for the later white settlers, who founded the city in 1833. It was incorporated as a municipal government in 1878. Nicknamed “City of Springs”, Neosho has long served as an agricultural center and more recently as a National Fish Hatchery. It is known locally as the “Gateway to the Ozarks”, and since 1957 as “the Flower Box City”.
Neosho natives including painter and Regionalist muralist Thomas Hart Benton, ragtime composer and pianist James Scott, and celebrated African-American inventor and botanist George Washington Carver have contributed to American life. Today, Neosho is enjoying a renaissance, particularly in the historic downtown area. Through a combination of private investment and public resources, numerous restoration and revitalization projects have been undertaken in the historic city center to restore its architectural quality, upgrade the infrastructure, and improve the quality of life of downtown. Due to 21st-century widespread economic problems in the region and state, however, the city is now struggling with its budget.
Neosho takes part in research to support America’s transition to alternative energy. Neosho’s Crowder College has been deeply involved in such research since the early 1980s; in 1984, it built the first solar-powered vehicle to successfully complete a coast-to-coast journey across the United States. In 2009, the college began constuction on the MARET (Missouri Alternative & Renewable Energy Technology) Center, a facility to encourage the development of experimental programs and alternative energy systems.
