Our stabilization process helps young people overcome dependence on drugs and alcohol under medical oversight. Withdrawal symptoms are managed with medication-assisted treatment (MAT).

Residential Treatment

Our scenic Texas ranch offers a safe, comfortable, and nonjudgmental space that promotes long-term recovery by providing a supported, structured environment with 24-hour care.

Intensive Outpatient

Our in-person and virtual IOP programs allow teens to maintain home commitments and support and guide their recovery from substance abuse and mental health conditions.

Licensed Education Program On-Site

Focusing on your child's recovery we run a licensed education program to make sure your child doesn't slip back academically.

Serene Locations with Outdoor Activities

Having a beautiful campus which overlooks Eagle Mountain Lake allows us the opportunity to get out into nature and connect.

Medication Assisted Treatment

With a medically assisted treatment, a team of clinicians monitors the participants' blood pressure and heart rate while they are in withdrawal.

Team of Medical Providers

Everyone is treated by a team consisting of licensed medical providers, therapists and licensed chemical dependency counselors.

Family Intensive Week

We understand how difficult drug and alcohol abuse can be for both teens and their parents. That is why we incorporate the whole family unit in our treatment, with our family-intensive week.

24/7 Staff Support

We have a team of providers and nurses, and a psychiatrist on hand. All teens receive 24/7 support from our professional team.

Founder & CEO of Clearfork Academy Rehab For Teens Fort Worth TX

Clearfork Academy was born out of a lifelong passion and calling that began decades ago. Pursuing my personal calling led me to ministry in church and eventually to professional ministry as a Licensed Professional Counselor. I believe God called me to create Clearfork Academy to cultivate life in addicted teens and their families by guiding them towards Christ through biblical community and clinical therapy. 
Our mission at Clearfork Academy's Rehab for Teens in Fort Worth is straightforward - to lead adolescents to a new LEGACY. We define these legacies through H.U.S.T.L.E. and Fun, which represent Honor, Unity, Sacrifice, Transparency, Legacy, Excellence, and Fun. We strive to honor God, ourselves, and others in all our actions. We seek common unity among clients and staff to ensure everyone feels supported and encouraged. We commit to going above and beyond in helping clients reach mental, physical, social, and spiritual health. We are transparent with ourselves and others, knowing that every action we take is measured against our commitment to a lasting and positive legacy. We promise excellence by never taking shortcuts in our interactions, programs, and treatment of each other. We believe that without fun, our calling is just a job, and so we incorporate enjoyment into our work. 
At Clearfork Academy, we strategically engage with chemically dependent teens and their families, friends, and churches. We are founded on the principle that traditional short-term therapies do not produce authentic heart change. Our approach focuses on long-term treatment, giving our team of professional clinicians sufficient time to address issues such as distorted thinking, dysfunctional behavior, and, most importantly, deeper issues of the heart. We are proud to provide the highest quality professional rehab for teens while maintaining our Christ-centered roots. Thank you for sharing in our vision to see men and women's lives changed and restored.

Thanks guys for tonight’s alumni meeting!
I get so much out of the calls - especially just chatting with the other parents - hearing about meetings y’all have with our boys.
Excellent calls - thank you for your investment with our kids, the...
When we discovered our son was using substances, my friend who is a recovery specialist told us she sends all her adolescent male clients to Clearfork Academy. Once we made the decision to admit him there, they quickly and efficiently worked with our insurance company and started treatment. When our son graduated from the program, we didn’t even make it off of the campus before he was thanking us for sending him there. Highly recommend!
My experiences with all the Clearfork Academy staff while my son was receiving treatment was always very positive and professional. It was true what the staff explained, that you will always be part of the Clearfork family after your son discharges from our care. Communication was always a priority with Clearfork Academy staff.
My husband and I are so grateful for Clearfork Academy. We believe God led us to this place. From the first phone call to even now in aftercare Clearfork has been supportive of our son and our family. The staff at Clearfork keep families informed and provide an exceptional environment for their young men. We were at peace the moment we stepped into the facility. Thank you Clearfork Academy for all you do to support young men in need of care and their families.
We want to thank you all for the compassion Clearfork Academy has shown our son and our family through the most challenging times as parents. The care our son received while in treatment at Clearfork Academy far exceeded our expectations. The most comforting part of this experience was the staff's compassion in finding the best treatment approach for our son. Clearfork Academy provided the therapy, values and structure our son needed to begin his recovery and jumpstart his spiritual journey. We consider all Clearfork Academy's staff as an extension of our family since they treated us like family throughout our son's therapy. Even though our son has graduated from Clearfork Academy, we still feel supported through the Alumni group. This is not a journey we expected for our teen, but we are forever thankful for Clearfork Academy!
ClearFork has helped me in ways I couldn’t imagine. I used to look at my life and couldn’t think of what it would be like without drugs, always angry at something and never happy. ClearFork showed me a life without drugs and then taught me how to live that life. I learned many ways to cope with my angry and anxiety along with many mechanisms that have been burned in my mind on how stay sober, what to do, and not to do. I truly believe without ClearFork I wouldn’t be here today, I put my life in a destructive path and life style by using drugs and ClearFork truly helped me out of that and for that thank you to ClearFork and to all the amazing staff that helped me.
I’m 15 years old and I struggled with drugs and alcohol for about a year and a half. I constantly lied to and disrespected my parents. Eventually, my parents caught on after over a year and started drug testing me, so I quit. I stayed sober for only a couple of weeks until I started drinking my parents’ alcohol. I clearly had a problem that wouldn’t be easy to fix. Once my father found out I was drinking his alcohol, my parents decided it’s time to send me to someplace that can help me with my addiction. They sent me to Clearfork Academy and I was there for 60 days and successfully graduated the program. It was hard to get used to at first, but every single day they helped me become a better person and overcome my addiction. They also helped me repair my relationship with my parents. All of the staff went out of their way to help me with personal problems. Overall, it was a great experience and it is one of the best things that ever happened to me. Now I am totally ahead in my life thanks to Clearfork Academy and the helpful staff and structure.
Clearfork not only aids in changing the lives of their clients, it also shows these young men the true VALUE of their lives. Our son entered Clearfork a different person than when he graduated. The counseling and support he received was invaluable to his life and to ours. My son’s addictions have resulted in many tears, screams of pain, and feelings of emptiness for his father and me. Clearfork absorbed our doubt and sadness and, in return, gave us a gift-- the gift of our 17-year-old son alive, awake, and thriving. Although there may be bumps along the way, we no longer hold the same crippling fear for his future. We are secure in the knowledge that he is equipped and supported by the staff at Clearfork, who have a true passion for struggling teens and their families.​
As an alumni family, I am so grateful for the ongoing support that Clearfork offers through the Tuesday Night Family Group and the Facebook group. I'm always shocked at how Mike and Eddie seem to be mind-readers and plan the Tuesday night speakers and topics around EXACTLY what I need...without me even knowing that it is what I need!! As my son continues in his recovery, both groups have been an invaluable resource in terms of ongoing education, a platform for asking questions, and a safe, supportive place where I can share all of the emotions that come with this journey.
