Teen Challenge Juvenile Rehabilitation Program

Welcome to Ozarks Teen Challenge Boys Academy. Where you will find much more than a juvenile rehabilitation program. Troubled teen and addiction rehabilitation involves restoration to an original state. We at Teen Challenge believe that God has a greater plan for your family. He intends to transform your son into the young man that he was created to be.
