We provide a safe, structured, and nurturing environment in which addicted boys from Arizona advance academically and behaviorally. They will also learn valuable life skills, build character, and develop healthy relationships with others. Addiction therapy here seeks to target 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 acting 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 given in to unhealthy and extremely damaging methods of coping with life. Drugs or alcohol and adrenaline-seeking behaviors 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, 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 need for drugs and alcohol will be lifted and they will be free to resume lives as happy, productive members of society.
If your teen is struggling with substances and/or behavioral issues, we can help turn his life around. Although we are not located in Tempe, Arizona, it is best 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 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 upwards of 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 didn’t work.
After completion of our Christian rehab, boys go back home followed by a strong aftercare program to prevent relapse . Aftercare is included without added cost in our normal tuition package.
Academics mean much to us, because we find that 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 help those who are struggling. Credits earned can easily transfer to private or public schools at home. Boys can also learn basic vocational skills including woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and others. After leaving our rehab, boys may decide to continue their classwork from home through the online Alpha Omega Academy that we use.
Many young men have put their lives back on track and have gone on to make a difference for Christ after completing the program at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch. We would like to talk with you to determine if our boarding school is a good option for your son. Whether you decide on Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, a school in Tempe, Arizona, or another program, we hope your family can experience the transformation that Christ can bring.
