Clearfork Academy

We believe in the potential of teenagers and the power of Christ to change the trajectory of their lives. Teen drug rehab is more than a job to us; it’s a calling. These factors are what make Clearfork Academy distinct from other addiction recovery facilities.

Founder & CEO

Austin Davis LPC-S

Originally from the Saginaw, Eagle Mountain area, Austin Davis earned a Bachelor of Science in Pastoral Ministry from Lee University in Cleveland, TN and a Master of Arts in Counseling from The Church of God Theological Seminary. He then went on to become a Licensed Professional Counselor-Supervisor in the State of Texas.

Austin’s professional history includes both local church ministry and clinical counseling. At a young age, he began serving youth at the local church in various capacities which led to clinical training and education. Austin gained a vast knowledge of mental health disorders while working in state and public mental health hospitals. This is where he was exposed to almost every type of diagnosis and carries this experience into the daily treatment.

Austin’s longtime passion is Clearfork Academy, A christ-centered residential facility focused on mental health and substance abuse.  He finds joy and fulfillment working with “difficult” clients that challenge his heart and clinical skill set. It is his hope and desire that each resident that passes through Clearfork Academy will be one step closer to their created design.

Austin’s greatest pleasures in life are being a husband to his wife, and a father to his growing children. He serves at his local church by playing guitar, speaking and helping with tech arts. Austin also enjoys being physically active, reading, woodworking, and music.

Chief Operating Officer

Shelley K. Plemons

Shelley Plemons serves as the company’s Chief Operating Officer. Her primary responsibility is the integrator of the company vision. Shelley brings to the organization over 30 years’ experience in the behavioral health industry. Her expertise includes successful healthcare strategy, improving quality of care, driving performance and growth and the deployment of strategic initiatives.

Ms. Plemons grew up in the Eagle Mt. Lake area. She has fond memories of living on the lake and enjoying all the activities that the lake life offered.  Her professional career in behavioral health has taken her to 45 states and 3 countries.  After 30 plus years as a corporate road warrior, God called Shelley back to old stomping grounds to help save lives of the adolescence we serve.

Shelley is an active member of Gateway Church where she serves on the greeting committee. She accepted Christ at the impressionable age of 8 years old but had life changing relationship experience with Jesus as an Adult.  This experience transformed her understanding of a relational God who wants to be involved in every aspect of our lives.

Shelley is an avid student of personal development. She holds a Masters of Science in Counseling from Amber University and a Bachelor of Arts in Speech Communication from Texas Christian University. Shelley attended Dallas Theological Seminary and is a former licensed therapist who specialized in adult and adolescence with both mental health and substance abuse issues.
