Teen Challenge admits boys from Utah on its Arkansas campus. This Christian rehab for teenagers is exceptional in that it has private bedrooms, an exciting wilderness therapy program, and it also solves behavioral problems.
We provide a safe, structured, and nurturing environment in which addicted boys from Utah grow academically and behaviorally. They will also learn valuable life skills, develop character, and develop healthy relationships with others. Addiction therapy here aims to identify underlying reasons for the repetition of inappropriate behaviors and addictions. We employ 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 harder illicit drugs. Regardless, they have surrendered to unhealthy and extremely harmful methods of dealing with life. Drugs or alcohol and adrenaline-seeking activities 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, better ways of coping with difficulties.
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 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 son is struggling with drugs and/or behavioral issues, we can help turn his life around. Although we are not located in , Utah, 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 program, he will learn how to conquer his struggles and develop healthy relationships. For more information about this Christian rehab for teens, located in Arkansas, please contact us.
As the initial residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been serving families for upwards of 40 years. We feel that centering our program on Christ is the reason so many boys have found deliverance from addictions here, even where other rehab programs have failed.
After completion of our Christian rehab, boys go back home accompanied by a strong aftercare program to continue their positive growth. 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. 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 may also study basic vocational skills such as woodworking, basic electrical, construction and carpentry, shop skills, basic automotive, and more. After graduating from our rehab, boys may choose to continue their classwork at home through the online Alpha Omega Academy that we use.
We would be happy to talk with you to see if our program is a good fit for your son. Please read the rest of our website and use our inquiry form or call us today.

Utah is a state in the Western United States. It was the 45th state to join the Union, on January 4, 1896. Utah is the 13th most extensive, the 34th most populous, and the 10th least densely populated of the 50 United States. Approximately 80% of Utah’s 2,817,222 people live along the Wasatch Front, centering on Salt Lake City. This leaves vast expanses of the state nearly uninhabited, making the population the sixth most urbanized in the U.S. The name “Utah” is derived from the name of the Ute tribe and means “people of the mountains” in the Ute language. Utah is bordered by Arizona on the south, Colorado on the east, Wyoming on the northeast, Idaho on the north and Nevada on the west. It also touches a corner of New Mexico.
Utah is the most religiously homogeneous state in the Union. Approximately 60% of Utahns are reported to be members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church), which greatly influences Utah culture and daily life.U.S. Religious Landscape Survey 2008, the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life, pp 99100. Retrieved July 2, 2008.]
The state is a center of transportation, information technology and research, government services, mining, and a major tourist destination for outdoor recreation. According to the U.S. Census Bureau’s population estimates, Utah was the fastestgrowing state in the United States as of 2008. St. George, Utah, was the fastestgrowing metropolitan area in the United States from 2000 to 2005.
