Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch provides a safe, structured, and nurturing environment in which addicted boys from Kansas grow academically and behaviorally. They will also learn practical 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 utilize adventure-based therapy, a proven curriculum, and continuous individual and group addiction counseling. As a result of these therapies, students replace their old ways of thinking and behaving with a new sense of drive and positivity.
For most boys who enter our program, harmful actions are driven by the substances they are abusing, from alcohol and marijuana to harder illicit drugs. In any case, they have surrendered to unhealthy and extremely damaging methods of dealing with life. Drugs or alcohol and adrenaline-seeking behaviors have become the boy’s coping mechanism for handling 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 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 issues, we can help turn his life around. Although we are not located in Shawnee, Kansas, 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 program, he will learn how to conquer 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 serving families for over 40 years. We feel that centering our program on Christ is the reason so many young men have discovered deliverance from addictions here, even where other rehab programs didn’t work.
After successfully finishing our Christian rehab, boys go back 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 feel education strongly supports future success. While enrolled in our accredited private Christian school, boys study on 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 may also study basic vocational skills including woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, welding, basic automotive, and more. After completing our rehab, boys may decide to continue their classwork at home.
Many boys 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 be happy to talk with you to help you decide if our boarding school is a good option for your son. Whether you choose Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, a rehab and sober school in Shawnee, Kansas, or another alternative, we hope your family can experience the transformation that Christ can bring.
