We provide a safe, structured, and nurturing environment in which addicted boys from Illinois grow academically and behaviorally. They will also learn valuable life skills, develop character, and develop healthy relationships with others. Addiction therapy here aims 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 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 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 dealing with the ordinary rigors of life. Once the addictions are under control, we introduce each boy to new, healthy ways of coping with struggles.
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 embrace these concepts, the need for drugs and alcohol will be removed and they will be free to resume lives as happy, productive members of society.
If your son is struggling with substances and/or behavioral troubles, we can help turn his life around. Although we are not located in Arlington Heights, Illinois, 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 program, he will learn how to overcome his struggles and develop healthy relationships. For more information about this Christian rehab for teens, located in Arkansas, please contact us.
As the very first residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been serving families for upwards of 40 years. We feel that centering our program on Christ is the reason countless boys have found deliverance from addictions here, even where other rehab programs failed.
After completion of our Christian rehab, boys go back home accompanied by a strong aftercare program to prevent relapse . Aftercare is included without added cost in our normal tuition package.
Education means a great deal to us, because we think education holds the key to future success. In our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, students work on courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to aid those who are struggling. Credits earned can easily transfer to public or private schools at home. Boys can also learn basic vocational skills like woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and others. After graduating from our rehab, boys may decide to continue their classwork from home through the online Alpha Omega Academy that we use.
Many boys have put their lives back on track and have gone on to make an impact for Christ after completing the program at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch. We would love to talk with you to determine if our boarding school is the right fit for your son. Whether you decide on Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, a school in Arlington Heights, Illinois, or another option, we hope your family can find the healing that Christ can bring.
