We provide a safe, structured, and nurturing environment in which addicted boys from Indiana advance academically and behaviorally. They will also learn practical life skills, develop 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 acting with a new sense of purpose and positivity.
For most boys who enter our program, harmful actions are driven by the substances they are abusing, from alcohol and marijuana to harder illicit drugs. In any case, they have surrendered to unhealthy and extremely harmful methods of dealing with life. Substances and adrenaline-seeking behaviors have become the boy’s coping mechanism for dealing with the ordinary rigors of life. After 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 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 removed and they will be able to resume lives as happy, productive members of society.
If your boy is struggling with substances and/or behavioral issues, we can help turn his life around. Although we are not located in Indianapolis, Indiana, it is best 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.
Since we became the first residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been assisting families for several decades. We believe that centering our program on Christ is the reason countless teenagers have found deliverance from addictions here, even where other rehab programs failed.
After graduation from our Christian rehab, boys return home with a strong aftercare program to prevent relapse . Aftercare is included without added cost in our normal tuition package.
Education means a great deal to us, because we find that education is critical for future success. While enrolled in our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, boys complete courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to aid those who are struggling. Credits earned can easily transfer to public or private schools at home. Boys may also study basic vocational skills for example woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and more. After completing our rehab, boys may opt to continue their classwork from home through the online Alpha Omega Academy that we use.
Many boys have put their lives back on track and have gone on to make a difference for Christ after graduating from Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch. We would love to talk with you to help you decide if our boarding school is the right fit for your son. Whether you decide on Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, a school in Indianapolis, Indiana, or another alternative, we hope your family can find the healing that Christ can bring.
