We provide a protective, structured, and nurturing environment in which addicted boys from Kentucky grow academically and behaviorally. They will also learn valuable life skills, build character, and develop 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 behaving with a new sense of purpose and positivity.
For most boys who enter our program, harmful actions are driven by the substances they are abusing, from alcohol and marijuana to various illicit drugs. In any case, they have given in to unhealthy and extremely harmful methods of coping with life. Substances and adrenaline-seeking activities 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, 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 embrace 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 son is struggling with substances and/or behavioral troubles, we can help turn his life around. Although we are not located in Bowling Green, Kentucky, 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 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 initial residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been offering hope to families for upwards of 40 years. We feel that centering our program on Christ is the reason so many young men are finding deliverance from addictions here, even where other rehab programs have failed.
After successfully finishing our Christian rehab, boys return home with a strong aftercare program to continue their positive growth. Aftercare is included without added cost in our normal tuition package.
Education means a lot to us, because we think education holds the key to future success. In our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, boys 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 for example woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and more. After completing our rehab, boys may choose to continue their classwork from 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 graduating from Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch. We would be happy 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 Bowling Green, Kentucky, or another program, we hope your family can experience the restoration that Christ can bring.
