We provide a safe, structured, and nurturing environment in which addicted boys from Michigan grow academically and behaviorally. They will also learn valuable life skills, develop character, and develop healthy relationships with others. Addiction therapy here seeks to target underlying reasons for the repetition 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 behaving 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 pot, to harder illicit drugs. In any case, they have surrendered to unhealthy and extremely harmful methods of coping with life. Drugs or alcohol and adrenaline-seeking behaviors have become the boy’s coping mechanism for handling the ordinary stresses of life. After the addictions are under control, we introduce each boy to new, healthy 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 obsession with drugs and alcohol will be lifted and they will be able to resume lives as happy, productive members of society.
If your boy is struggling with substances and/or behavioral troubles, we can help turn his life around. Although we are not located in Lansing, Michigan, 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 serving families for upwards of 40 years. We believe that centering our program on Christ explains why numerous young men have found deliverance from addictions here, even where other rehab programs failed.
After completion of our Christian rehab, boys go home with a strong aftercare program to prevent relapse . Aftercare is included without added cost in our normal tuition package.
Academics mean a lot to us, because we feel education holds the key to future success. Within our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, students work on courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to help 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 completing our rehab, boys may decide to continue their classwork at home through the online Alpha Omega Academy that we use.
Many teens have turned their lives around and have gone on to make a difference 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 a good option for your son. Whether you select Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, a school in Lansing, Michigan, or another program, we hope your family can experience the transformation that Christ can bring.
