We provide a safe, structured, and nurturing environment in which addicted boys from Nebraska advance academically and behaviorally. They will also learn valuable life skills, build character, and create healthy relationships with others. Addiction therapy here seeks to target underlying reasons for the re-occurrence of inappropriate behaviors and addictions. We utilize adventure-based therapy, a proven curriculum, and continuous 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 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 various illicit drugs. In any case, they have surrendered to unhealthy and extremely harmful methods of dealing with life. Substances and adrenaline-seeking behaviors have become the boy’s coping mechanism for dealing with the ordinary rigors 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 obsession with 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 substances and/or behavioral troubles, we can help turn his life around. Although we are not located in Omaha, Nebraska, 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 build healthy relationships. For more information about this Christian rehab for teens, located in Arkansas, please contact us.
Since we became the very first residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been bringing restoration to families several decades. We feel that centering our program on Christ is the reason so many boys have realized deliverance from addictions here, even where other rehab programs didn’t work.
After completion of our Christian rehab, boys go back 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 much to us, because we think 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 aid those who are struggling. 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 completing our rehab, boys may choose to continue their classwork from home through the online Alpha Omega Academy that we use.
Many young men have turned their lives around and have gone on to make an impact for Christ after completing the program at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch. We would love to talk with you to determine if our boarding school is a good fit for your son. Whether you choose Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, a school in Omaha, Nebraska, or another option, we hope your family can experience the transformation that Christ can bring.

Omaha is the largest city in the state of Nebraska, United States, and is the county seat of Douglas County.GR It is located in the Midwestern United States on the Missouri River, about 20 miles (30 km) north of the mouth of the Platte River. Omaha is the anchor of the Omaha-Council Bluffs metropolitan area, which includes Council Bluffs, Iowa, across the Missouri River from Omaha.
According to the 2010 Census, Omaha’s population was 408,958, making it the nation’s 42nd-largest city. Including its suburbs, Omaha formed the 60th-largest metropolitan area in the United States in 2010, with an estimated population of 865,350 residing in eight counties. There are more than 1.2 million residents within a 50-mile (80-km) radius of the city’s center, forming the Greater Omaha area.
Omaha’s pioneer period began in 1854 when the city was founded by speculators from neighboring Council Bluffs, Iowa. The city was founded along the Missouri River, and a crossing called Lone Tree Ferry earned the city its nickname, the “Gateway to the West.” During the 19th century, Omaha’s central location in the United States caused the city to become an important national transportation hub. Throughout the rest of the 19th century, the transportation and jobbing sectors were important in the city, along with its railroads and breweries. In the 20th century, the Omaha Stockyards, once the world’s largest, and its meatpacking plants, gained international prominence.
Today, Omaha is the home to five Fortune 500 companies: ConAgra Foods, Union Pacific Corporation, Mutual of Omaha, Peter Kiewit and Sons, Inc., and Berkshire Hathaway. Berkshire Hathaway is headed by local investor Warren Buffett, who was the richest person in the world for the first half of 2008. Omaha is also the home to four Fortune 1000 headquarters, TD Ameritrade, West Corporation, Valmont Industries, and Werner Enterprises. First National Bank of Omaha is the largest privately held bank in the United States. Headquarters for Leo A Daly, HDR, Inc. and DLR Group, three of the US’s top 30 architectural and engineering firms, are located in Omaha.
The modern economy of Omaha is diverse and built on skilled knowledge jobs. In 2009, Forbes identified Omaha as the nation’s number one “Best Bang-For-The Buck City” and number one on “America’s Fastest-Recovering Cities” list. Tourism in Omaha benefits the city’s economy greatly, with the annual College World Series providing important revenue and the city’s Henry Doorly Zoo serving as the top attraction in Nebraska. Omaha hosted the Olympic swim trials in 2008, and is scheduled to do so again in 2012.
A historic preservation movement in Omaha has led to a number of historic structures and districts being designated Omaha Landmarks or listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Since its founding, ethnic groups in the city have clustered in enclaves in north, south and downtown Omaha. In its early days, the city’s history included a variety of crime such as illicit gambling and riots. Today, the diverse culture of Omaha includes a variety of performance venues, museums, and musical heritage, including the historically-significant jazz scene in North Omaha and the modern and influential “Omaha Sound”. Sports have been important in Omaha for more than a century, and the city currently hosts three professional sports teams. Omaha also has a number of recreational trails and parks located throughout the city.
