How Relationship Building Helps with Effective Drug Treatment


The Role Relationships Play in Effective Drug Treatment Programs

At Ozarks Teen Challenge, we understand the importance that relationships play in effective drug treatment programs. Not only do we value the relationship between an individual and God, but also the relationship between staff members and the teens at our boys boarding school.

Believe it or not, the relationship between staff members and your teen is an extremely crucial aspect of the healing process. Valuable human interactions can make a big difference in overcoming challenges, especially when it comes to alcohol and drug treatment.

You may be wondering, How can something as simple as a relationship make THAT big of a difference? There are many components to a relationship that contribute to the success of your teens at our boys boarding school. Continue reading to discover more!

Care and Warmth

Many teens that come to a boys boarding school feel hesitant and unsure because it is an unfamiliar environment away from home. However, when staff members exhibit care and warmth, that sense of nervousness and fear begins to dissipate, providing a safe environment for your teens to overcome their struggles with addiction.


For your teen to be able to develop and grow, a trusting relationship is also vital to our drug treatment program. If there is trust between staff members and your teen, your teen will be more likely to open up and share their experiences not just with staff members, but with other teens,  mentors, and even God.


Exhibiting emotional authenticity is arguably one of the most important aspects of the relationship. Our staff members build true and lasting relationships with your teens. It is not just a job for us – we genuinely care for your teens as if they were our own and we are dedicated to helping your teen grow and gain control of their lives through the Word of God.

Building a Relationship with God

While our staff members build relationships with your teens, they are also showing your teen how to build a relationship with God. Many troubled teens have lost their way and are searching for a meaningful connection with God, even if they don’t always know it. Learning to trust and be open with staff members will help your teen get back on their path and find their way toward a closer relationship with Him in heart, soul, and mind.
