We provide a safe, structured, and nurturing environment in which addicted boys from Florida grow academically and behaviorally. They will also learn practical life skills, build character, and develop healthy relationships with others. Addiction therapy here aims to identify underlying reasons for the repetition of inappropriate 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 given in to unhealthy and extremely harmful methods of coping 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, better 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 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 drugs and/or behavioral troubles, we can help turn his life around. Although we are not located in Brandon, Florida, it is best for a boy to be separated 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 first 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 explains why numerous teenage boys are finding deliverance from addictions here, even where other rehab programs have failed.
After completion of our Christian rehab, boys return home accompanied by a strong aftercare program to prevent relapse . Aftercare is included without added cost in our normal tuition package.
Education means a lot to us, because we believe education forms a foundation for future success. While enrolled in our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, boys complete courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to help those who are struggling. Credits earned can easily transfer to private or public schools at home. Boys can also learn basic vocational skills including woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and others. After completing our rehab, boys may opt 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 an impact for Christ after graduating from Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch. We would be happy to talk with you to help you decide if our boarding school is a good fit for your son. Whether you choose Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, a school in Brandon, Florida, or another alternative, we hope your family can experience the transformation that Christ can bring.
