333. Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch

The Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch located in Morrow, Arkansas is part of a huge network. According to articles it has a nasty reputation.

The facility does not only market themselves as a cure against drugs and alcohol intake. According to articles they also involve themselves in “treating” religious issues and sexual orientation. “Pray the gay away” is one term used. “Perfecting” Jews is another.

Articles state that suicide attempts are rarely reported. Articles also mentions that treatment devices issues for the children like an inhaler were withheld from the children.

It does not sound a fun place to be as a teenager. Especially if you live by values not shared with the employees.
