We provide a safe, structured, and nurturing environment in which addicted boys from Kentucky grow academically and behaviorally. They will also learn valuable life skills, develop character, and develop healthy relationships with others. Addiction therapy here aims to identify underlying reasons for the re-occurrence of damaging 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 behaving with a new sense of drive and positivity.
For most boys who enter our program, harmful actions are driven by the substances they are abusing, from alcohol and pot, to various illicit drugs. In any case, they have surrendered to unhealthy and extremely damaging methods of dealing with life. Substances and adrenaline-seeking behaviors have become the boy’s coping mechanism for handling 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 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 able to resume lives as happy, productive members of society.
If your boy is struggling with drugs and/or behavioral issues, we can help turn his life around. Although we are not located in Lexington-Fayette, Kentucky, it is best for a boy to be removed 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.
As the initial 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 so many young men have realized deliverance from addictions here, even where other rehab programs failed.
After graduation from our Christian rehab, boys go home followed by a strong aftercare program to continue their positive growth. Aftercare is included without added cost in our normal tuition package.
Academics mean a lot to us, because we find that education forms a foundation for future success. Within our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, boys work on courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to aid those who need it. Credits earned can easily transfer to private or public schools at home. Boys can also learn basic vocational skills like woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and more. After graduating from our rehab, boys may choose to continue their classwork from 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 successfully finishing 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 Lexington-Fayette, Kentucky, or another program, we hope your family can find the healing that Christ can bring.
