We provide a safe, structured, and nurturing environment in which addicted boys from Florida advance 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 damaging behaviors and addictions. We employ 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 actions are driven by the substances they are abusing, from alcohol and marijuana to harder illicit drugs. Regardless, they have surrendered to unhealthy and extremely harmful methods of coping with life. Substances and adrenaline-seeking activities have become the boy’s coping mechanism for handling 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 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 son is struggling with drugs and/or behavioral issues, we can help turn his life around. Although we are not located in Cape Coral, 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 overcome his struggles and build healthy relationships. For more information about this Christian rehab for teens, located in Arkansas, please contact us.
As the initial residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been assisting families for upwards of 40 years. We believe that centering our program on Christ is the reason numerous teenagers have discovered deliverance from addictions here, even where other rehab programs have failed.
After completion of 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 believe education forms a foundation for future success. While enrolled in our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, boys study 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 such as woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and others. After graduating from our rehab, boys may prefer to continue their classwork at 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 completing the program at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch. We would love to talk with you to help you decide if our boarding school is a good fit for your son. Whether you decide on Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, a school in Cape Coral, Florida, or another option, we hope your family can experience the restoration that Christ can bring.
