We provide a safe, structured, and nurturing environment in which addicted boys from Kentucky grow academically and behaviorally. They will also learn valuable life skills, build character, and develop healthy relationships with others. Addiction therapy here aims to identify underlying reasons for the re-occurrence of damaging behaviors and addictions. We employ adventure-based therapy, a proven curriculum, and continuous 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 behaviors are driven by the substances they are abusing, from alcohol and marijuana to various illicit drugs. Regardless, they have given in to unhealthy and extremely harmful methods of dealing with life. Drugs or alcohol and adrenaline-seeking behaviors have become the boy’s coping mechanism for dealing with the ordinary stresses of life. Once 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 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 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 Richmond, Kentucky, 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.
As the very first 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 boys have realized deliverance from addictions here, even where other rehab programs didn’t work.
After graduation from our Christian rehab, boys go home accompanied by a strong aftercare program to continue the forward momentum. Aftercare is included without added cost in our normal tuition package.
Academics mean much to us, because we think education holds the key to future success. Within our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, students study on courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to aid those who need it. Credits earned can easily transfer to private or public schools at home. Boys may also study basic vocational skills like woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and more. After completing our rehab, boys may decide to continue their classwork at home through the online Alpha Omega Academy that we use.
Many teens 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 be happy to talk with you to help you decide if our boarding school is a good option for your son. Whether you select Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, a school in Richmond, Kentucky, or another program, we hope your family can find the healing that Christ can bring.
