We provide a safe, structured, and nurturing environment in which addicted boys from Missouri advance academically and behaviorally. They will also learn practical life skills, build character, and create healthy relationships with others. Addiction therapy here seeks to identify underlying reasons for the repetition of inappropriate behaviors and addictions. We utilize 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. Drugs or alcohol and adrenaline-seeking behaviors have become the boy’s coping mechanism for handling the ordinary stresses of life. Once 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 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 removed and they will be able 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 Springfield, Missouri, 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 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 first residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been serving families for over 40 years. We feel that centering our program on Christ explains why so many young men have discovered deliverance from addictions here, even where other rehab programs have failed.
After completion of our Christian rehab, boys go home with a strong aftercare program to continue their positive growth. Aftercare is included without added cost in our normal tuition package.
Academics mean a great deal to us, because we think education is critical for future success. While enrolled 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 private or public schools at home. Boys may also study basic vocational skills for example woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and more. 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 completing the program at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch. We would be happy to talk with you to see if our boarding school is a good option for your son. Whether you decide on Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, a school in Springfield, Missouri, or another alternative, we hope your family can find the healing that Christ can bring.
