Teen Challenge helps boys from Mississippi on its Arkansas campus. This Christian rehab for teenagers is unique in that it has private bedrooms, an exciting wilderness therapy program, and it also solves behavioral problems.
We provide a safe, structured, and nurturing environment in which addicted boys from Mississippi grow academically and behaviorally. They will also learn practical life skills, build character, and create healthy relationships with others. Addiction therapy here seeks 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 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 marijuana to harder illicit drugs. Regardless, they have given in to unhealthy and extremely damaging 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, 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 need for drugs and alcohol will be removed and they will be free 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 , Mississippi, 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 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 initial residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been bringing restoration to families for upwards of 40 years. We believe that centering our program on Christ explains why so many boys are finding deliverance from addictions here, even where other rehab programs didn’t work.
After completion of 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.
Academics mean a great deal to us, because we find that education strongly supports future success. Within our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, students study 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 such as 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.
We would like to talk with you to see if our program is a good option for your son. Please read the rest of our website and use our inquiry form or call us today.

Mississippi is a U.S. state located in the Southern United States. Jackson is the state capital and largest city. The name of the state derives from the Mississippi River, which flows along its western boundary, whose name comes from the Ojibwe word misi-ziibi (“Great River”). Mississippi is the 32nd most extensive and the 31st most populous of the 50 United States. The state is heavily forested outside of the Mississippi Delta area, which was cleared for cotton cultivation in the 19th century. Today, its catfish aquaculture farms produce the majority of farm-raised catfish consumed in the United States. The state symbol is the magnolia grandiflora tree.
