Justin Smith, CEO & Executive Director

Our exciting residential program and boys ranch provide a place for families to get help for their addicted or troubled boys when all else has failed. We provide a structured but adventure-filled environment, a loving Christian atmosphere, and expert intervention for behavioral issues and addictions. 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 are the country’s oldest Teen Challenge adolescent program, established in 1973.

We have an amazing, dedicated team of Christian professionals on staff and a unique boys ranch program. Our staff outnumbers the students. You won’t find a better-staffed program anywhere else, and everyone here considers their work a life calling, not just a job.

We are a licensed therapeutic program with the State of Arkansas, and we were recently awarded CARF Certification, one of the most challenging accreditation services for therapeutic programs. They check everything we do therapeutically and hold us to the highest standards.


What distinguishes a CARF-accredited organization?

Organizations that have achieved accreditation demonstrate the following:

  • A higher degree of internal quality.
  • Greater involvement of persons served in their services.
  • Increased cohesion among staff members at all levels within the organization.
  • The enhanced status of the surveyed services within the community.

When your organization is accredited, the public is assured that you are committed to continually improving the quality of your services, and your organization’s focus is on service outcomes, customer feedback, and satisfaction.

Also, our addiction treatment side is now accredited through LegitScript. It is an ongoing checking service used by major search engines to ensure that our addiction treatment services are legitimate.
