We provide a safe, structured, and nurturing environment in which addicted boys from South Dakota grow academically and behaviorally. They will also learn practical life skills, develop character, and create healthy relationships with others. Addiction therapy here aims 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 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 various illicit drugs. In any case, 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 dealing with the ordinary stresses of life. After the addictions are under control, we introduce each boy to new, better ways of coping with difficulties.
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 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 issues, we can help turn his life around. Although we are not located in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, 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 develop 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 assisting families for upwards of 40 years. We believe that centering our program on Christ is the reason so many teenagers are finding deliverance from addictions here, even where other rehab programs didn’t work.
After successfully finishing our Christian rehab, boys go back home with a strong aftercare program to prevent relapse . Aftercare is included without added cost in our normal tuition package.
Education means much to us, because we think education is critical for future success. Within our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, students work on courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to assist those who are struggling. Credits earned can easily transfer to public or private schools at home. Boys can also learn basic vocational skills like woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and more. After graduating from 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 successfully finishing Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch. We would love 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 Sioux Falls, South Dakota, or another alternative, we hope your family can find the healing that Christ can bring.
