Helping Troubled Boys with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch
If your son is among the troubled boys grappling with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), characterized by persistent and distressing thoughts, feelings, and sensations, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch offers targeted and transformative treatment.
The relentless cycle of intrusive thoughts, known as obsessions, drives compulsive actions in an attempt to alleviate the distress. Despite recognizing the irrationality of these thoughts or behaviors, troubled boys find fleeting relief through these compulsive actions.
Obsessions may revolve around concerns such as disease, germs, a need for symmetry, unwanted urges to harm someone or objectionable sacred or sexual thoughts. Common compulsions may manifest in ceremonial behaviors like repetitive word or number utterances, routine activities such as turning on/off appliances, precise food consumption sequences, or hoarding items without apparent value.
At Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, we specialize in addressing the unique challenges faced by troubled boys with OCD to prevent potential complications, including eating or anxiety disorders, depression, substance abuse, diminished overall quality of life, and even suicidal thoughts or behaviors.
Our comprehensive approach combines cognitive behavior therapy, particularly effective when used alongside medication, to empower troubled boys to confront and manage their OCD anxieties healthily. Anti-depressants, with a focus on serotonin production in the brain, may also be prescribed to alleviate symptoms.
As a leader in Teen Challenge boarding schools, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been dedicated to finding innovative ways to assist troubled boys for over four decades. Operating as a Christian therapeutic boarding school and ranch, our faith-based solutions guide troubled boys toward personal growth and positive transformation.
Our structured and disciplined approach to learning, faith-based teaching, program format, and intervention style aims to foster academic success as a foundation for long-term life achievements.
We strive to guide troubled boys toward psychological balance, physical health, mental well-being, academic excellence, social adjustment, and spiritual fulfillment. Our mission is to witness even the most challenging cases transform into young men of character and integrity.
Our effective Aftercare program ensures ongoing support for the transition of troubled boys back home, providing local mentorship, continued encouragement, and accountability to prevent a recurrence of the issues that led them to us initially.
Choosing Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch with OCD is crucial, offering hope for a new and more productive future. We instill in them the importance of goals and perseverance, providing an opportunity to reach their full potential.
