We provide a protective, structured, and nurturing environment in which addicted boys from Michigan advance academically and behaviorally. They will also learn practical life skills, develop character, and develop healthy relationships with others. Addiction therapy here seeks to identify underlying reasons for the repetition of inappropriate 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 purpose and positivity.
For most students who enter our program, harmful actions are driven by the substances they are abusing, from alcohol and marijuana to various illicit drugs. In any case, they have given in to unhealthy and extremely damaging methods of coping with life. Drugs or alcohol and adrenaline-seeking behaviors have become the boy’s coping mechanism for dealing with the ordinary stresses 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 lifted and they will be free to resume lives as happy, productive members of society.
If your teen is struggling with substances and/or behavioral issues, we can help turn his life around. Although we are not located in Ann Arbor, Michigan, 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 bringing restoration to families for several decades. We feel that centering our program on Christ explains why so many teenage boys have found deliverance from addictions here, even where other rehab programs didn’t work.
After completion of 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.
Education means a lot to us, because we find that education holds the key to future success. In our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, students study on 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 for example woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and more. After completing our rehab, boys may decide to continue their classwork at home through the online Alpha Omega Academy that we use.
Many young men 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 like to talk with you to determine if our boarding school is a good option for your son. Whether you select Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, a school in Ann Arbor, Michigan, or another alternative, we hope your family can experience the transformation that Christ can bring.

Ann Arbor is a city in the U.S. state of Michigan and the county seat of Washtenaw County. The 2010 census places the population at 113,934, making it the sixth largest city in Michigan. The Ann Arbor Metropolitan Statistical Area had a population of 344,791 as of 2010. The city is also part of the larger Detroit Ann Arbor Flint, MI CSA.
Ann Arbor was founded in 1824, with one theory stating that it is named after the spouses of the city’s founders and for the stands of trees in the area.Marwil, pp. 12] The University of Michigan moved from Detroit to Ann Arbor in 1837, and the city showed steady growth throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, with a decline during the Depression of 1873. During the 1960s and 1970s, the city gained a reputation as an important center for liberal politics. Ann Arbor also became a focal-point for left-wing activism and served as a hub for the civil-rights movement and anti-Vietnam War movement, as well as the student movement.
Today, Ann Arbor is home to the University of Michigan, which is the dominant institution of higher learning in the city. The university shapes Ann Arbor’s economy significantly as it employs about 30,000 workers, including about 12,000 in the medical center. The city’s economy is also centered on high technology, with several companies drawn to the area by the university’s research and development money, and by its graduates. Ann Arbor has increasingly found itself grappling with the effects of sharply rising land values and gentrification, as well as urban sprawl stretching far into the outlying countryside.
