We provide a protective, structured, and nurturing environment in which addicted boys from Alabama grow academically and behaviorally. They will also learn practical life skills, develop character, and develop 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 ongoing individual and group addiction counseling. As a result of such therapies, students replace their old ways of thinking and acting 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 marijuana to various illicit drugs. Regardless, they have given in to unhealthy and extremely damaging methods of dealing with life. Drugs or alcohol and adrenaline-seeking behaviors 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, healthy 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 Huntsville, Alabama, 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 conquer his struggles and develop healthy relationships. For more information about this Christian rehab for teens, located in Arkansas, please contact us.
As the initial residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been assisting families for several decades. We feel that centering our program on Christ explains why countless teenagers are finding deliverance from addictions here, even where other rehab programs failed.
After completion of our Christian rehab, boys return home accompanied by a strong aftercare program to help them continue to grow. Aftercare is included without added cost in our normal tuition package.
Education means much to us, because we feel education strongly supports future success. Within our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, boys 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 can also learn basic vocational skills including woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and more. After leaving our rehab, boys may prefer 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 completing the program at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch. We would love to talk with you to determine if our boarding school is the right fit for your son. Whether you choose Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, a school in Huntsville, Alabama, or another program, we hope your family can find the healing that Christ can bring.
