boys therapeutic school in Arkansas

Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch was established to help troubled teen boys become mentally and emotionally sound, academically strong, and prepared for a positive future. Our licensed therapeutic program helps boys recover from trauma, adoption issues, negative peer influences, physical/sexual abuse, drug/substance use, online addictions, and other life-controlling mental health conditions.

WHY CHOOSE OUR PROGRAM?

boys ranch for troubled boys in ArkansasOur Therapeutic Program is CARF Accredited — Through accreditation, CARF (Commission of the Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities) assists service providers in improving the quality of their services, demonstrating value, and meeting internationally recognized organizational and program standards. Accreditation is an ongoing process, signaling to the public that a service provider is committed to continuously improving services, encouraging feedback, and serving the community. Accreditation also demonstrates a provider’s commitment to enhance its performance, manage its risk, and distinguish its service delivery.

Our Treatment is Accepted by Many Insurance Providers — Our program is a fully licensed treatment center, eligible for insurance funding.

A Case Manager Works Directly with You and Your Boy — Your Case Manager will communicate with you and your family about your child’s progress, the challenges he faces, and other key information while he’s enrolled at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch.

A Strong Academic Program — We’ve seen tremendous success in helping young men advance their education. Boys unable to achieve in other learning environments often make great progress at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch. Our private school offers fully accredited classes which can be transferred to other public or private schools after completion of the Teen Challenge program. For boys who have simply gotten too far behind to catch up in a year, we also have a GED preparation track. Historically, all of the students who have completed our GED preparation classes have obtained their GED on the first testing.

Our Amazing Aftercare Program — Our special training and certification helps your boy stay successful after he leaves Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch. Staff members will work with you to develop the best possible aftercare plan for your child, usually lasting six months. We emphasize developing a plan that prevents relapse and maintains positive future progress.

Our Christ-Centered Approach — Our program is a faith-based, Christ-centered organization. The curriculum, teaching, program format, and style of intervention are all biblically-based. By God’s grace, we have seen even the most oppositional and troubled boys transform their lives and become young men of character and integrity.

We Have a Large, Experienced Team — In order to provide the best possible recovery and safety for your boy, we maintain a well-trained, experienced team of 50 caregivers and counselors, which offers among the highest ratio of staff-to-students in the industry. Direct care staffers watch over the boys during their waking hours, with at least one staffer overseeing a maximum of 9 boys. So, if 36 boys are in a room or activity, at least 4 staff and usually more will be with them at all times. Staffers keep track of the boys around the clock, ready to handle any emergency.

Our 60-Year History of Success with Addiction Recovery — On our ranch-style campus, we feature a licensed addiction treatment program for boys with all types of addictions. Based on federal and university studies done on various Teen Challenge centers across the United States, the Teen Challenge program shows a very high success rate for addiction recovery.

Our Established Program and Organization with High Standards — Our program was the very first residential center for teenage boys by Teen Challenge. We have been helping young men and their families for 60 years and continually strive to exceed all standards and creatively develop new practices for the national organization.
