Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch enrolls boys from Alabama and across the nation on its Arkansas campus. It is exceptional from all other Teen Challenge programs in that it has private bedrooms for each of the boys. It also features top academics, licensed addiction treatment (insurance accepted), an awesome wilderness adventure program, mission trips, and equine therapy.
For teen boys coping with anger, emotional issues, depression, behavioral problems, legal problems, or substance abuse, we can help. The ability to choose a new path is possible through this Teen Challenge program for adolescent boys. We lovingly train troubled boys to choose a new path in life, leading them to be godly and upright young men.
If you are searching for a Teen Challenge for your boy in Alabama, be aware that Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch could be just what you need. Located in Arkansas, it may be a distance from Alabama, but that may be a good thing. Boys needing intervention may need to get away from your hometown — away from the negative impact of friends and familiar places — away and the negative impact of friends there.
As the very first residential Teen Challenge program for boys, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch has been serving families for upwards of 40 years. A relationship with Jesus is the best source of change in the lives of the teenagers. Every significant portion of our Teen Challenge program is biblically-based.
A number of factors show the difference between Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch and other similar programs:
MUCH LOWER COST! Teen Challenge is a fraction of the cost of other therapeutic programs.
ADDICTION TREATMENT — Our program is a licensed dual-diagnosis Addiction Treatment Center with staff expertly trained to treat addictions to alcohol or drugs, as well as harmful lifestyle addictions to gambling, pornography, or online gaming.
6-MONTH AFTERCARE PROGRAM — After graduation from this Teen Challenge, boys go back home accompanied by a strong aftercare program to help them continue to grow. Aftercare is included in our tuition package.
MORE STAFF — First, we keep student-to-staff ratios low so that boys have plenty of supervision and one-on-one attention. Also, our staff are highly trained and most have bachelor or master’s degrees in their area of work.
ADVENTURE-BASED THERAPY — Our students have regular opportunities to experience fun and challenging outdoor trips and activities. Students enjoy camping, backpacking, rappelling, canoeing, and hiking, climbing and cave exploration. Boys are challenged physically and learn the importance of responsibility, goals and perseverance.
PRIVACY — Rather than a large dorm filled with bunk beds, our students enjoy their own bedrooms, separate from the noise and influence of the other boys. We feel that this privacy is important.
Academics mean much to us at Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch, because we feel education forms a foundation for future success. While enrolled in our private Christian school with fully accredited classes, boys study courses led by certified teachers, with individual tutoring available to aid those who need it.
Parents from all over the nation, including Alabama, decide on Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch for their sons.
Residents at Teen Challenge engage in a variety of recreational activities, both on and off campus. We run an adventure program that is second to none. In addition to being fun and physically challenging for the boys, it teaches them about reaching goals, communicating and cooperating well with others.
Many young men have turned their lives around and have gone on to make a difference for Christ after completing the program at Teen Challenge. We would love to talk with you to help you decide if our boarding school is the right fit for your son. Whether you choose Teen Challenge, a school in Alabama, or another option, we hope your family can experience the transformation that Christ can bring.

|More about Teen Challenge in Alabama: |
Alabama is a state located in the southeastern region of the United States. It is bordered by Tennessee to the north, Georgia to the east, Florida and the Gulf of Mexico to the south, and Mississippi to the west. Alabama is the 30th most extensive and the 23rd most populous of the 50 United States. Alabama ranks second in the area of its inland waterways.
From the American Civil War until World War II, Alabama, like many Southern states, suffered economic hardship, in part because of continued dependence on agriculture. Despite the growth of major industries and urban centers, white rural interests dominated the state legislature until the 1960s, while urban interests and African Americans were under-represented. Following World War II, Alabama experienced growth as the economy of the state transitioned from agriculture to diversified interests in heavy manufacturing, mineral extraction, education, and technology. In addition, the establishment or expansion of multiple military installations, primarily those of the U.S. Army and U.S. Air Force, added to state jobs.
Alabama is unofficially nicknamed the Yellowhammer State, after the state bird. Alabama is also known as the “Heart of Dixie.” The state tree is the Longleaf Pine, the state flower is the Camellia. The capital of Alabama is Montgomery. The largest city by population is Birmingham. The largest city by total land area is Huntsville. The oldest city is Mobile, founded by French colonists.
