We provide a safe, structured, and nurturing environment in which addicted boys from Ohio grow academically and behaviorally. They will also learn valuable life skills, develop character, and create healthy relationships with others. Addiction therapy here aims to target underlying reasons for the re-occurrence 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 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 harder illicit drugs. In any case, they have given in to unhealthy and extremely damaging methods of dealing with life. Drugs or alcohol and adrenaline-seeking activities have become the boy’s coping mechanism for dealing with 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 modelled 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 removed 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 Hilliard, Ohio, 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 program, he will learn how to overcome his struggles and develop 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 serving families for over 40 years. We feel that centering our program on Christ is the reason numerous teenage boys have found deliverance from addictions here, even where other rehab programs have failed.
After graduation from our Christian rehab, boys go back home with 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 believe education is critical 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 including woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and others. After completing our rehab, boys may choose 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 a difference for Christ after completing the program at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch. We would be happy to talk with you to help you decide if our boarding school is a good fit for your son. Whether you choose Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, a school in Hilliard, Ohio, or another alternative, we hope your family can find the healing that Christ can bring.
