Ozark Trails is a residential treatment program providing outstanding clinical therapy, incredible academic learning, and amazing outdoor responsibility and adventure for teen girls and boys, ages 12-21, who are looking for help and need to discover real change.
Ozark Trails Academy accepts students year-round and is licensed to provide all levels of therapeutic care for youth, ages 12-21, with mild to moderate emotional and behavioral problems.
Ozark Trails Academy is a residential treatment center for troubled teens boys and girls ages 12-21, who are experiencing future-impacting relational or emotional difficulties brought on by trauma. Limiting our care to 24 teens allows for more attention to be given to each struggling child by our three licensed therapists and several trained staff. An individualized clinical therapy plan and focused care helps our students move to a better place mentally and emotionally in a much shorter period of time, alleviating the difficulties and broken relationships they are currently experiencing. Our residential treatment center helps struggling teens find positive new ways to manage life’s obstacles and traumas that have strained their well-being and relationships in the past.
“In order for real lasting change to occur, it has to come from the heart. Outdoor activities are a backdrop to breakthrough therapy and learning through equine therapy, farm responsibilities, and recreation. Our whole treatment program and school is designed around this concept.”
Ozark Trails rests on 750 acres including horses, chickens, farming, mountain biking, rafting,
spelunking, rock climbing, hiking, wilderness learning, and so much more.
We do individual, group, family, equine therapy & 12-step health.
Online education program through Willow Springs School District (WSSD), Missouri Course Access Virtual School Program (MOCAP) and LAUNCH, which is a MOCAP provider.
A unique natural setting that enhances therapeutic effects for each teen.
“The Ozark Trails Academy program is one of the best I’ve seen, after my time serving as a juvenile court trial judge for over 25 years. The directory and founder, Richard Jones, started the program because he cares deeply about helping kids achieve lifetime success. I would not hesitate to refer family and friends to Ozark Trails Academy.”
