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 13-19, who are looking for help and need to discover real change. We provide family focused and individual treatment care by licensed clinical therapists.
Ozark Trails Academy accepts students year-round and is licensed to provide all levels of therapeutic care for youth, ages 13-19, with mild to moderate emotional and behavioral problems.
A residential treatment center for troubled teen boys and girls who are experiencing future-impacting relational or emotional difficulties brought on by trauma, Ozark Trails Academy limits our care to 24 teens allowing for more attention to be given to each struggling teen by our three licensed therapists and several trained staff. An individualized clinical therapy plan and family 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.

“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 director 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.”
"In order for real lasting change to occur, it has to come from the heart. Our whole treatment program and school is designed around this concept."
