We provide a protective, structured, and nurturing environment in which addicted boys from Florida advance academically and behaviorally. They will also learn valuable life skills, develop character, and create healthy relationships with others. Addiction therapy here seeks to target underlying reasons for the re-occurrence of damaging 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 acting with a new sense of purpose and positivity.
For most students 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 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 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 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 troubles, we can help turn his life around. Although we are not located in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, 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 facility, he will learn how to conquer his struggles and develop 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 helping families for upwards of 40 years. We feel that centering our program on Christ is the reason so many young men have realized deliverance from addictions here, even where other rehab programs didn’t work.
After successfully finishing our Christian rehab, boys go back home accompanied by a strong aftercare program to continue the forward momentum. Aftercare is included without added cost in our normal tuition package.
Education means a lot to us, because we believe education holds the key to future success. Within our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, students work on courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to assist those who are struggling. Credits earned can easily transfer to private or public schools at home. Boys may also study basic vocational skills such as woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and more. After leaving our rehab, boys may decide to continue their classwork at home through the online Alpha Omega Academy that we use.
Many boys 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 be happy to talk with you to determine if our boarding school is a good fit for your son. Whether you choose Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, a school in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, or another option, we hope your family can experience the transformation that Christ can bring.
