Teen Challenge helps boys from Alaska on its Arkansas campus. This rehab program for teenagers is exceptional in that it has private bedrooms, an awesome wilderness therapy program, and it offers expert help in solving both behavioral problems in teens and addictions to drugs, alcohol, gaming or pornography.
We provide a protective, structured, and nurturing environment in which addicted boys from Alaska advance 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 inappropriate behaviors and addictions. We employ adventure-based therapy, a proven curriculum, and ongoing individual and group addiction counseling. As a result of these 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 pot, to harder illicit drugs. In any case, they have given in 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 dealing with the ordinary rigors of life. After the addictions are under control, we introduce each boy to new, better ways of coping with difficulties.
Spiritual principles such as honesty, integrity, and compassion are also taught to the boys and modelled 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 son is struggling with drugs and/or behavioral troubles, we can help turn his life around. Although we are not located in Anchorage, Alaska, it is ideal 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 build healthy relationships. For more information about this Christian rehab for teens, located in Arkansas, please contact us.
Since we became the initial residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been offering hope to families for upwards of 40 years. We believe that centering our program on Christ explains why numerous young men have discovered deliverance from addictions here, even where other rehab programs failed.
After successfully finishing our Christian rehab, boys go back home with a strong aftercare program to prevent relapse . Aftercare is included without added cost in our normal tuition package.
Academics mean a lot to us, because we think education holds the key to future success. Within our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, students work on courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to help those who are struggling. Credits earned can easily transfer to private or public schools at home. Boys can also learn basic vocational skills like woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and others. After completing our rehab, boys may opt to continue their classwork at home through the online Alpha Omega Academy that we use.
We would like to talk with you to see if our program is the right fit for your son. Please read the rest of our website and use our inquiry form or call us today.
