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 valuable life skills, build character, and develop healthy relationships with others. Addiction therapy here seeks to target underlying reasons for the re-occurrence of damaging 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 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. Regardless, they have surrendered to unhealthy and extremely damaging methods of coping with life. Drugs or alcohol and adrenaline-seeking activities 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 need for drugs and alcohol will be lifted and they will be free to resume lives as happy, productive members of society.
If your teen is struggling with drugs and/or behavioral issues, we can help turn his life around. Although we are not located in Park Ridge, Illinois, it is best 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 first residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been offering hope to families for over 40 years. We believe that centering our program on Christ is the reason numerous boys have realized deliverance from addictions here, even where other rehab programs didn’t work.
After graduation from our Christian rehab, boys return home followed by a strong aftercare program to help them continue to grow. Aftercare is included without added cost in our normal tuition package.
Academics mean a great deal to us, because we think education is critical for 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 private or public schools at home. Boys may also study basic vocational skills such as woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, welding, basic automotive, and more. After graduating from our rehab, boys may choose to continue their classwork from home.
Many teens have turned their lives around 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 determine if our boarding school is a good fit for your son. Whether you choose Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, a rehab and sober school in Park Ridge, Illinois, or another option, we hope your family can experience the transformation that Christ can bring.
