We provide a safe, structured, and nurturing environment in which addicted boys from Missouri grow academically and behaviorally. They will also learn valuable life skills, build character, and create healthy relationships with others. Addiction therapy here seeks to identify underlying reasons for the repetition of damaging behaviors and addictions. We employ 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 behaving 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. In any case, they have surrendered to unhealthy and extremely damaging methods of coping with life. Substances and adrenaline-seeking behaviors have become the boy’s coping mechanism for dealing with the ordinary stresses of life. Once 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 grab ahold of these concepts, the need for drugs and alcohol will be lifted 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 Ballwin, Missouri, 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 overcome his struggles and build 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 helping families for upwards of 40 years. We believe that centering our program on Christ is the reason so many teenagers have realized deliverance from addictions here, even where other rehab programs didn’t work.
After completion of our Christian rehab, boys go home followed by a strong aftercare program to continue the forward momentum. Aftercare is included without added cost in our normal tuition package.
Academics mean much to us, because we believe education forms a foundation for future success. Within our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, students work on courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to assist those who are struggling. Credits earned can easily transfer to public or private schools at home. Boys may also study basic vocational skills including woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and more. After leaving our rehab, boys may opt 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 a difference for Christ after completing the program at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch. We would like to talk with you to help you decide if our boarding school is the right fit for your son. Whether you select Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, a school in Ballwin, Missouri, or another alternative, we hope your family can experience the restoration that Christ can bring.
