We provide a safe, structured, and nurturing environment in which addicted boys from Michigan advance academically and behaviorally. They will also learn valuable life skills, build character, and create healthy relationships with others. Addiction therapy here seeks to identify underlying reasons for the re-occurrence of inappropriate behaviors and addictions. We utilize 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 drive and positivity.
For most students who enter our program, harmful behaviors are driven by the substances they are abusing, from alcohol and marijuana to harder illicit drugs. Regardless, they have given in to unhealthy and extremely damaging methods of coping with life. Drugs or alcohol and adrenaline-seeking behaviors 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, better ways of coping with struggles.
Spiritual principles such as honesty, integrity, and compassion are also taught to the boys and modelled 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 removed and they will be free to resume lives as happy, productive members of society.
If your boy is struggling with substances and/or behavioral troubles, we can help turn his life around. Although we are not located in East Lansing, Michigan, it is best 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.
As the first residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been helping families for several decades. We feel that centering our program on Christ is the reason countless teenagers have realized deliverance from addictions here, even where other rehab programs have failed.
After successfully finishing 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.
Academics mean a great deal to us, because we find that education is critical for future success. Within our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, students complete courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to assist those who need it. Credits earned can easily transfer to public or private schools at home. Boys may also study basic vocational skills like woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and more. After completing our rehab, boys may decide to continue their classwork at home through the online Alpha Omega Academy that we use.
Many teens 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 determine if our boarding school is a good option for your son. Whether you choose Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, a school in East Lansing, Michigan, or another alternative, we hope your family can experience the restoration that Christ can bring.
