We provide a protective, structured, and nurturing environment in which addicted boys from Arizona grow 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 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 these therapies, students replace their old ways of thinking and acting with a new sense of purpose 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. In any case, they have given in to unhealthy and extremely damaging methods of dealing with life. Substances and adrenaline-seeking activities have become the boy’s coping mechanism for handling the ordinary rigors of life. After 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 embrace these concepts, the need for drugs and alcohol will be lifted 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 Peoria, Arizona, 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 very first residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been offering hope to families several decades. We believe that centering our program on Christ explains why so many teenage boys have realized deliverance from addictions here, even where other rehab programs failed.
After completion of our Christian rehab, boys return 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 lot to us, because we think education forms a foundation for future success. In our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, boys study courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to assist those who need it. Credits earned can easily transfer to private or public schools at home. Boys may also study basic vocational skills such as 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 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 determine if our boarding school is the right fit for your son. Whether you choose Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, a school in Peoria, Arizona, or another option, we hope your family can experience the restoration that Christ can bring.
