We provide a protective, structured, and nurturing environment in which addicted boys from Colorado advance academically and behaviorally. They will also learn practical life skills, develop character, and create healthy relationships with others. Addiction therapy here seeks to target underlying reasons for the re-occurrence 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 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 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. 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 grab ahold of these concepts, the need for drugs and alcohol will be lifted and they will be able to resume lives as happy, productive members of society.
If your teen is struggling with drugs and/or behavioral issues, we can help turn his life around. Although we are not located in Pueblo, Colorado, it is ideal for a boy to be removed 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 develop healthy relationships. For more information about this Christian rehab for teens, located in Arkansas, please contact us.
As the initial residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been bringing restoration to families several decades. We believe that centering our program on Christ explains why numerous boys are finding deliverance from addictions here, even where other rehab programs didn’t work.
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 much to us, because we feel education is critical for future success. 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 need it. Credits earned can easily transfer to public or private schools at home. Boys may also study basic vocational skills like woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and others. After completing our rehab, boys may opt to continue their classwork from home through the online Alpha Omega Academy that we use.
Many boys have put their lives back on track and have gone on to make an impact for Christ after successfully finishing Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch. We would like 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 Pueblo, Colorado, or another option, we hope your family can experience the restoration that Christ can bring.
