The Top 5 Reasons Therapists Are Choosing Clearfork Academy

 

 

Your clients turn to you for guidance when they need substance abuse and/or mental health treatment. They ask you where to go, and who can help them and their family. We know you only want to refer your clients to treatment facilities you can genuinely trust. You want a place that’s equipped and qualified to handle each specific issue and diagnosis that your client is facing. 

 

If you’re looking for the best treatment facility to collaborate with, we are here to help! At Clearfork Academy, we offer gender-specific, faith-based, treatment for boys ages 13-18. We’ve successfully helped thousands of teen boys find a new path and create a new legacy.

 

Here are the top five reasons we are the #1 choice for many therapists:

1. Our Services

  • Residential Treatment
    Unlike others that only offer a 28-day treatment option, our program is a full 13 weeks long. We use that time to help our patients focus on their recovery, learn life skills, and learn how to lead a better life.
  • Medical Detox
    As patients begin to clear their body of substances, our medical staff customizes and oversees their care. The health and safety of our boys is always a top priority.

2. Qualified Staff

  • Master Level Clinicians
    At Clearfork Academy, we are well-equipped to treat multiple mental health diagnoses. Our masters level licensed therapists meet individually with each patient. They work to help these boys understand the underlying causes of their addiction, and find lasting change.
  • On-Site Nurses
    The health of our patients is of the utmost importance. For that reason, there is a nurse on-site 24-7. Our nurses oversee the detox process, and treat any other health concerns as needed.

3. Family Care

  • Family Therapy
    At Clearfork Academy, we have a full-time family therapist on staff. Substance abuse and mental health treatment is a family issue, so we care for the entire family. Additionally, the support of family plays a huge role in the success of many teens in treatment.
  • Family Support Groups
    Our family support group meets every Tuesday. It is our goal to be engaged with the families of our patients, and to stay engaged with them. This support group is for the families of current patients, and for the families of our alumni. We are here for the families of these boys for as long as they need us!

4. Treatment Modalities

At Clearfork Academy, we utilize a variety treatment modalities based on the patient and their specific needs. Through these different therapy options, we are able to successfully treat multiple diagnoses, including trauma and depression.


5. Aftercare

  • A Plan For Success
    On the first day of treatment, our team begins working on an aftercare plan for each patient. When boys leave our facility, we want them to be well-equipped to continue their recovery journey.
  • Alumni Team
    From the moment of admission, our patients become a part of the Clearfork family. We love inviting our alumni back to share their stories of hope with current patients. Our team is always available to assist with resources, guidance and recognition of important benchmarks no matter how long it’s been since graduation.

 

Over the years we have built relationships with many therapists. Our relationships are built on trust. When a therapist refers one of their clients to Clearfork Academy, they are able to rest assured with 100% confidence that their client and family are receiving the best treatment available. 

 

“My experience referring young men to Clearfork Academy has been positive. From the admissions process to returning to me for aftercare, I felt informed and engaged. More importantly, their active, intentional, & therapeutic approach helps teens work toward healing and living a life in recovery.” – Cristal Clark, LPC-S

Why Is Gender-Specific Treatment Best For My Son?

 

At this point, you’ve either already decided that your son needs treatment, or you are very seriously considering it. Either way, you’re at a fork in the road and doing your best to research and collect information. You’ve found yourself on this blog because your son is struggling with mental health or substance abuse issues. You want the very best treatment for him, and so do we! 

When it comes to selecting a treatment center, there are tons of factors to consider. We believe that finding a gender-specific treatment center is absolutely critical to your son’s recovery.

Let’s face it, teenagers are easily distracted by the opposite sex. Gender-specific treatment allows our ‘boys to be boys’ without the distractions that can arise from co-mingling. Our goal is to create a safe environment and eliminate distractions so that your son is able to truly heal and recover. As a parent, you can expect the best results for your child in a gender-specific treatment program. Here’s why:

 

Safety 

Teenage relationships with the opposite sex often create a sense of insecurity. In a treatment environment, we want to create as much safety and security as possible. When kids feel safe, they begin to open up about the emotional things that they might not usually discuss. That openness is such an important part of the recovery process.

 

Stability 

When we remove the emotional ups and downs of teenage relationships, we can provide a more stable environment. That stability gives teens a chance to focus on their health and recovery.  

 

Results

At Clearfork Academy, we treat teenage boys ages 13-18. We remove the distraction of the opposite sex, and focus on the specific needs these boys have. They’re able to bond with their peers and our staff in a unique way because of the gender-specific environment. This leads to better outcomes and better long term results.

 

Consistency throughout the course of treatment gives us that gender specific autonomous focus on our boys each and every day.” – Austin Davis, LPC-S, Founder/CEO

 

If your son needs help, we would be happy to provide the safe and stable treatment environment he needs. Call to speak with our clinical admissions specialists at 888-966-8604, or visit our website at ClearforkAcademy.com for more information.
