We provide a safe, structured, and nurturing environment in which addicted boys from Louisiana advance academically and behaviorally. They will also learn practical life skills, build character, and create healthy relationships with others. Addiction therapy here aims to identify underlying reasons for the re-occurrence of damaging behaviors and addictions. We utilize 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 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 harder illicit drugs. In any case, 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 stresses of life. After the addictions are under control, we introduce each boy to new, better ways of coping with struggles.
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 obsession with drugs and alcohol will be lifted and they will be able 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 Baton Rouge, Louisiana, 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 build healthy relationships. For more information about this Christian rehab for teens, located in Arkansas, please contact us.
Since we became the first residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been serving families for over 40 years. We feel that centering our program on Christ explains why numerous young men have discovered deliverance from addictions here, even where other rehab programs have failed.
After graduation from our Christian rehab, boys go home accompanied by a strong aftercare program to prevent relapse . Aftercare is included without added cost in our normal tuition package.
Academics mean a great deal to us, because we think education is critical for future success. Within our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, boys study courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to help 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 others. After completing our rehab, boys may choose to continue their classwork from 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 an impact for Christ after successfully finishing Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch. We would love 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 Baton Rouge, Louisiana, or another alternative, we hope your family can find the healing that Christ can bring.

We are glad you chose to look at our Christian rehab for teenage boys as you search for a rehab or addiction treatment center in or around Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
Baton Rouge is the capital of the U.S. state of Louisiana. It is located in East Baton Rouge Parish and is the second-largest city in the state.
Baton Rouge is a major industrial, petrochemical, medical, and research center of the American South. The Port of Baton Rouge is the ninth largest in the United States in terms of tonnage shipped, and is the farthest upstream Mississippi River port capable of handling Panamax ships.
The Baton Rouge area, also known as the “Capital Area”, is located in the southeast portion of the state along the Mississippi River. It owes its historical importance to its site upon Istrouma Bluff, the first bluff upriver from the Mississippi River Delta, which protects the citys residents from flooding, hurricanes, and other natural disasters. In addition to this natural barrier, the city has built a levee system stretching from the bluff southward to protect the riverfront and low-lying agricultural areas.
The city of Baton Rouge has a population of 229,553 as of the 2010 census. The metropolitan area, known as Greater Baton Rouge, has a population of 802,484 people as of 2010.
