We provide a safe, structured, and nurturing environment in which addicted boys from Georgia advance academically and behaviorally. They will also learn valuable life skills, build character, and develop healthy relationships with others. Addiction therapy here seeks to target underlying reasons for the repetition of damaging 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 acting with a new sense of drive and positivity.
For most boys 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 harmful methods of dealing with life. Substances 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, healthy ways of coping with difficulties.
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 need for drugs and alcohol will be lifted and they will be able to resume lives as happy, productive members of society.
If your boy is struggling with drugs and/or behavioral troubles, we can help turn his life around. Although we are not located in Atlanta, Georgia, 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.
As the very first residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been assisting families for over 40 years. We believe that centering our program on Christ explains why numerous teenagers are finding 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 continue their positive growth. Aftercare is included without added cost in our normal tuition package.
Education means much to us, because we feel education strongly supports future success. While enrolled in our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, boys 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 such as 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 put their lives back on track and have gone on to make a difference for Christ after successfully finishing 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 Atlanta, Georgia, or another program, we hope your family can experience the restoration that Christ can bring.

Atlanta is the most populous city in the U.S. state of Georgia with a 2010 population of 420,003. Atlanta is the cultural and economic center of the Atlanta metropolitan area, which is home to 5,268,860 people and is the ninth largest in the U.S. It is a major component of a growing southeastern megalopolis known as the Piedmont Atlantic Megaregion. Atlanta is the county seat of Fulton County, and a small portion of the city extends eastward into DeKalb County. Residents of the city and its surroundings are known as “Atlantans.”
Atlanta began as a settlement located at the intersection of two railroad lines, and it was incorporated in 1845. Today, the city is a major business city and the primary transportation hub of the Southeastern United States (via highway, railroad, and air), with HartsfieldJackson Atlanta International Airport being the world’s busiest airport since 1998. The World Cities Study Group at Loughborough University rated Atlanta as an “alpha(-) world city.” With a gross domestic product of US$270 billion, Atlanta’s economy ranks 15th among world cities and sixth in the nation. The city is a center for services, finance, information technology, government, and higher education. Metro Atlanta contains the country’s third largest concentration of Fortune 500 companies, and is the world headquarters of The Coca-Cola Company, Turner Broadcasting, The Home Depot, AT&T Mobility, UPS, and Delta Air Lines. As of 2010, Atlanta is the seventh most visited city in the United States, with over 35 million visitors per year.
The city has long been known as a center of black wealth, political power and culture; a cradle of the Civil Rights Movement and home to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. However, the city’s white population is growing rapidly, while Metro Atlanta has quickly become ethnically diverse with large Hispanic and Asian populations. The arts and entertainment are well represented in Atlanta, and the city is an important base for hip hop, gospel, and neo soul music; in addition, it has become a major center of film and TV production. Atlanta stands out among major U.S. cities for its dense tree coverage. In 1996, Atlanta played host to the Summer Olympics, an event that spurred a wave of gentrification that has intensified into the 21st century, revitalizing the city’s center and in-town neighborhoods.
