We provide a protective, structured, and nurturing environment in which addicted boys from Tennessee advance academically and behaviorally. They will also learn practical life skills, build 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 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 marijuana to harder illicit drugs. Regardless, they have given in to unhealthy and extremely damaging methods of coping with life. Substances and adrenaline-seeking activities 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, 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 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 son is struggling with substances and/or behavioral issues, we can help turn his life around. Although we are not located in Memphis, Tennessee, 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 build 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 over 40 years. We believe that centering our program on Christ is the reason countless teenage boys have discovered deliverance from addictions here, even where other rehab programs have failed.
After successfully finishing our Christian rehab, boys go back 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 a great deal to us, because we feel education holds the key to future success. Within our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, boys complete 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 including woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and others. After graduating from our rehab, boys may prefer to continue their classwork from home through the online Alpha Omega Academy that we use.
Many young men 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 like to talk with you to determine if our boarding school is the right fit for your son. Whether you select Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, a school in Memphis, Tennessee, or another alternative, we hope your family can find the healing that Christ can bring.
