We provide a protective, structured, and nurturing environment in which addicted boys from Texas grow academically and behaviorally. They will also learn valuable life skills, develop character, and develop healthy relationships with others. Addiction therapy here seeks to identify underlying reasons for the repetition of damaging behaviors and addictions. We utilize 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 boys who enter our program, harmful actions 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 damaging methods of dealing with life. Drugs or alcohol and adrenaline-seeking behaviors have become the boy’s coping mechanism for handling the ordinary stresses of life. Once the addictions are under control, we introduce each boy to new, better ways of coping with struggles.
Spiritual principles 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 obsession with 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 Amarillo, Texas, 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 conquer his struggles and develop healthy relationships. For more information about this Christian rehab for teens, located in Arkansas, please contact us.
Since we became the first residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been bringing restoration to families for upwards of 40 years. We believe that centering our program on Christ explains why countless boys have found deliverance from addictions here, even where other rehab programs have failed.
After graduation from our Christian rehab, boys go back home with a strong aftercare program to help them continue to grow. Aftercare is included without added cost in our normal tuition package.
Education means a lot to us, because we believe education strongly supports future success. While enrolled in our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, boys 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 can also learn basic vocational skills such as woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and more. After completing our rehab, boys may choose to continue their classwork from home through the online Alpha Omega Academy that we use.
Many teens have turned their lives around and have gone on to make an impact for Christ after completing the program at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch. We would be happy to talk with you to determine if our boarding school is a good fit for your son. Whether you select Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, a school in Amarillo, Texas, or another option, we hope your family can experience the restoration that Christ can bring.
