About Ozarks Teen Challenge

The Ozarks Teen Challenge Difference: Faith Based Recovery

On 200 acres of rolling hills in the foothills of the Ozark Mountains, Ozarks Teen Challenge has been an effective long-term Christian boarding school for the past 15 years. Our campus is like a  wilderness adventure, where your adolescent teen boy will be pulled out of the distractions of everyday life to find recovery. In our care, your son can grow mentally, physically, and spiritually. 

Physical, Spiritual, and Mental Development

We act as a long-term addiction recovery program for most of our Christian boarding school students. We also help students with any other life-controlling issue and can help them work through their anxiety, depression, and hopelessness by helping them find purpose in Christ. This Missouri Boarding school will help your son find a place of peace and rest.

Long Term Recovery

For 15-months, your student will be focusing on his development, working to build family restoration, and taking time to spend on spiritual growth. At our boarding school, he will be able to finish his high school curriculum while focusing on Christ-centered recovery. They will be involved in athletics and other sports activities. We will create outdoor adventures and travel to mission trips around the country. Our dedicated staff will strive to help your son’s experience be successful. 

Christian Recovery Values

The values of this program are not a simple therapy formula for changing your son, but we hope he will experience long lasting sobriety and transformation.  Deep lasting change comes through a genuine relationship with Jesus Christ. We don’t want to just “fix” your son. We want him to experience a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ that will transform both his mind and his heart.

Daily Progress

Our faith based programs for troubled teens include structured, daily habits, spiritual nurturing and group counseling for drug treatment and behavioral development. We intend not only to introduce your son to Jesus Christ, but to guide him into true discipleship. As he grows as a disciple in our youth program, you will begin to see his anger, indifference, substance abuse and destructive behavior diminish while his countenance begins to reflect that of Christ. Take a look at How We Measure Success.

Whether Ozarks Teen Challenge is your first or your last attempt to resolve your son’s crisis, we are confident about the redemptive, transforming power of God. We trust that He who created your son also intends to prosper him. Our Christian boarding school for boys offers faith based teen rehab in many forms including group counseling, behavioral development and recovery, wilderness adventure activities and more.
