We provide a safe, structured, and nurturing environment in which addicted boys from Alabama grow academically and behaviorally. They will also learn practical life skills, build character, and create healthy relationships with others. Addiction therapy here seeks to target underlying reasons for the repetition of inappropriate 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 behaviors are driven by the substances they are abusing, from alcohol and marijuana to harder illicit drugs. In any case, they have surrendered to unhealthy and extremely harmful methods of coping with life. Substances and adrenaline-seeking activities have become the boy’s coping mechanism for handling the ordinary rigors of life. Once 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 lifted 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 Mobile, Alabama, it is ideal 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 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 offering hope to families for several decades. We believe that centering our program on Christ explains why countless teenagers have found deliverance from addictions here, even where other rehab programs have failed.
After graduation from our Christian rehab, boys go back home with 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 holds the key to future success. Within our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, students study on courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to aid those who are struggling. Credits earned can easily transfer to private or public schools at home. Boys may also study basic vocational skills like woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and more. After leaving our rehab, boys may opt 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 completing the program at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch. We would love to talk with you to help you decide if our boarding school is the right fit for your son. Whether you choose Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, a school in Mobile, Alabama, or another alternative, we hope your family can experience the transformation that Christ can bring.
