We provide a safe, structured, and nurturing environment in which addicted boys from Texas advance academically and behaviorally. They will also learn practical life skills, develop character, and develop healthy relationships with others. Addiction therapy here aims to identify underlying reasons for the repetition of damaging behaviors and addictions. We utilize 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 behaving 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 various illicit drugs. Regardless, 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. 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 modelled 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 lifted and they will be free to resume lives as happy, productive members of society.
If your teen is struggling with drugs and/or behavioral issues, we can help turn his life around. Although we are not located in Irving, Texas, 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 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 first residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been serving families for several decades. We feel that centering our program on Christ explains why numerous teenage boys have discovered deliverance from addictions here, even where other rehab programs didn’t work.
After successfully finishing 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.
Academics mean much to us, because we find that education strongly supports 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 are struggling. Credits earned can easily transfer to public or private schools at home. Boys may also study basic vocational skills like woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and others. After graduating from our rehab, boys may opt 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 like to talk with you to determine if our boarding school is a good option for your son. Whether you decide on Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, a school in Irving, Texas, or another alternative, we hope your family can experience the transformation that Christ can bring.
