We provide a protective, structured, and nurturing environment in which addicted boys from Louisiana advance academically and behaviorally. They will also learn valuable life skills, develop character, and develop healthy relationships with others. Addiction therapy here aims 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 acting with a new sense of purpose and positivity.
For most students who enter our program, harmful behaviors are driven by the substances they are abusing, from alcohol and marijuana to various illicit drugs. In any case, they have surrendered to unhealthy and extremely damaging methods of coping 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, healthy ways of coping with difficulties.
Spiritual principles such as honesty, integrity, and compassion are also taught to the boys and modelled 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 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 New Orleans, Louisiana, 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 facility, 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.
As the first residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been offering hope to families for over 40 years. We feel that centering our program on Christ explains why countless young men have found deliverance from addictions here, even where other rehab programs have failed.
After graduation from our Christian rehab, boys return home accompanied by a strong aftercare program to continue their positive growth. Aftercare is included without added cost in our normal tuition package.
Academics mean much to us, because we feel education is critical for future success. While enrolled in 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 private or public schools at home. Boys can also learn basic vocational skills for example woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and others. After graduating from our rehab, boys may opt to continue their classwork from home through the online Alpha Omega Academy that we use.
Many boys have turned their lives around 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 see if our boarding school is a good option for your son. Whether you select Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, a school in New Orleans, Louisiana, or another option, we hope your family can experience the transformation that Christ can bring.
