We provide a safe, 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 aims to target underlying reasons for the repetition of inappropriate behaviors and addictions. We employ adventure-based therapy, a proven curriculum, and ongoing 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 purpose and positivity.
For most students who enter our program, harmful behaviors are driven by the substances they are abusing, from alcohol and marijuana to various illicit drugs. Regardless, they have surrendered to unhealthy and extremely damaging methods of dealing with life. Drugs or alcohol and adrenaline-seeking activities have become the boy’s coping mechanism for handling 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 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 boy is struggling with substances and/or behavioral issues, we can help turn his life around. Although we are not located in Arlington, Texas, 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 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.
Since we became the initial residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been bringing restoration to families several decades. We believe that centering our program on Christ explains why so many young men have realized deliverance from addictions here, even where other rehab programs have failed.
After successfully finishing our Christian rehab, boys return 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 a great deal to us, because we feel education is critical for future success. Within our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, students complete courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to aid those who need it. Credits earned can easily transfer to public or private schools at home. Boys may also study basic vocational skills like woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and others. After completing our rehab, boys may decide to continue their classwork at home through the online Alpha Omega Academy that we use.
Many teens have turned their lives around and have gone on to make a difference 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 fit for your son. Whether you select Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, a school in Arlington, Texas, or another option, we hope your family can find the healing that Christ can bring.
