We provide a safe, structured, and nurturing environment in which addicted boys from Nevada grow academically and behaviorally. They will also learn practical life skills, build character, and create healthy relationships with others. Addiction therapy here aims to target underlying reasons for the re-occurrence of damaging 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 behaving with a new sense of drive and positivity.
For most boys who enter our program, harmful actions are driven by the substances they are abusing, from alcohol and pot, to various 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 stresses of life. After the addictions are under control, we introduce each boy to new, healthy 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 free 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 Reno, Nevada, 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 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 initial residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been helping families for several decades. We believe that centering our program on Christ is the reason numerous teenagers are finding deliverance from addictions here, even where other rehab programs failed.
After completion of our Christian rehab, boys go home with a strong aftercare program to continue the forward momentum. Aftercare is included without added cost in our normal tuition package.
Education means a great deal to us, because we think education is critical for future success. In our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, boys work on courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to aid those who are struggling. Credits earned can easily transfer to public or private 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 completing our rehab, boys may choose to continue their classwork at 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 like to talk with you to help you decide if our boarding school is a good option for your son. Whether you choose Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, a school in Reno, Nevada, or another program, we hope your family can find the healing that Christ can bring.
