We provide a safe, structured, and nurturing environment in which addicted boys from Indiana advance academically and behaviorally. They will also learn valuable life skills, develop 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 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 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 surrendered to unhealthy and extremely harmful methods of dealing 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, 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 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 teen is struggling with substances and/or behavioral issues, we can help turn his life around. Although we are not located in Fort Wayne, Indiana, 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 very first residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been assisting families for over 40 years. We feel that centering our program on Christ explains why numerous boys have realized deliverance from addictions here, even where other rehab programs didn’t work.
After successfully finishing our Christian rehab, boys return 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 much to us, because we feel education is critical for future success. While enrolled in our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, students study 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 may also study basic vocational skills for example woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and others. After leaving our rehab, boys may choose to continue their classwork from 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 see if our boarding school is a good option for your son. Whether you decide on Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, a school in Fort Wayne, Indiana, or another alternative, we hope your family can experience the restoration that Christ can bring.
