Teen Challenge helps boys from Colorado on its Arkansas campus. This Christian rehab for teenagers is uncommon in that it has private bedrooms, an awesome wilderness therapy program, and it also solves behavioral problems.
We provide a protective, structured, and nurturing environment in which addicted boys from Colorado 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 repetition of inappropriate 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 boys who enter our program, harmful behaviors are driven by the substances they are abusing, from alcohol and pot, to various illicit drugs. Regardless, 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 handling the ordinary rigors 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 modeled 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 removed 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 , Colorado, 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 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.
Since we became the initial residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been assisting families for over 40 years. We believe that centering our program on Christ is the reason numerous young men are finding deliverance from addictions here, even where other rehab programs have failed.
After graduation from our Christian rehab, boys go back 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 a lot to us, because we feel education strongly supports future success. While enrolled in our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, boys work on courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to help those who need it. 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 graduating from our rehab, boys may opt to continue their classwork from home through the online Alpha Omega Academy that we use.
We would love to talk with you to help you decide if our program is a good option for your son. Please read the rest of our website and use our inquiry form or call us today.

Colorado is a U.S. state that encompasses most of the Southern Rocky Mountains as well as the northeastern portion of the Colorado Plateau and the western edge of the Great Plains. Colorado is part of the Western United States and the Mountain States. Colorado is the 8th most extensive and the 22nd most populous of the 50 United States.
The state was named for the Colorado River, which early Spanish explorers named the Ro Colorado for the red colored (Lang-es) silt the river carried from the mountains. On August 1, 1876, U.S. President Ulysses S. Grant signed a proclamation admitting Colorado as the 38th state. Colorado is nicknamed the “Centennial State” because it was admitted to the Union in 1876, the centennial year of the United States Declaration of Independence.
Colorado is bordered by the northwest state of Wyoming to the north, the midwest states of Nebraska and Kansas to the northeast and east, on the south by New Mexico and a small portion of the southern state of Oklahoma, and on the west by Utah. The four states of Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, and Utah meet at one common point known as the Four Corners, which is known as the heart of the American Southwest. Colorado is one of only three U.S. states with no natural borders, the others being neighboring Wyoming and Utah. Colorado is noted for its vivid landscape of mountains, forests, high plains, mesas, canyons, plateaus, rivers, and desert lands.
Denver is the capital and the most populous city of Colorado. Residents of the state are properly known as “Coloradans”, although the archaic term “Coloradoan” is still used.Writers Style Guide, Colorado State University. Retrieved January 19, 2009.]Cite news]
