Outstanding Clinical Therapy

Therapy for Troubled Teenagers


Our licensed therapists and trained staff at Ozark Trails Academy residential treatment center work with troubled teens year-round to provide all levels of therapeutic care for mild to moderate emotional and behavioral problems. We typically serve students suffering from trauma, adoption, RAD, and abuse.

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. We provide family focused and individual treatment care by licensed clinical therapists.

The environmental components at Ozark Trails Academy allow for an intensive clinical experience to occur while methodically, comprehensively and thoroughly addressing each student’s treatment needs. Research demonstrates better post-treatment outcomes when youth participate in wilderness therapy in conjunction with residential treatment. Riding and caring for horses, exploring, rock-climbing and river activities all contribute to the therapy process that helps teens transform their hearts and minds.
