Residential Treatment Programs for Teens and Adolescent

What Is Teen Residential Treatment?

Our adolescent residential treatment centers in Fort Worth and Cleburne offer a safe, substance-free environment for teenagers in recovery from drug and alcohol abuse. Your teen will take part in a full schedule of therapy, treatment, learning, and activities run by our expert mental health professionals. Unlike outpatient treatment, they will have 24-hour supervision and a chance to focus on building skills for their future.

Addiction is difficult at any age. Young adults with substance use disorders need special support because these years of life are so formative. Clearfork Academy’s residential programs give them space in which to recover, surrounded by the glorious beauty of the Texas countryside.

How Do You Know When Teen Residential Treatment Is Needed?

A teenager with a substance abuse problem may show changes in physical appearance, behavior, and mental health. Different drugs have different effects on the human body; some general signs to look out for include:

  • Changes in speech and coordination
  • Neglect of personal hygiene
  • Unusual smells on breath, body, or clothes
  • Nosebleeds
  • Changes in appetite or sleep patterns
  • Weight changes
  • Withdrawing from family and friends
  • Secretiveness
  • Loss of interest in hobbies
  • Performance at school is getting worse
  • Risk-taking behavior

We are specialists in teen mental health care. Our evidence-based residential treatment programs help teenagers to recover from the abuse of alcohol, prescription medication, and illicit drugs. If your teen is showing signs of a problem, get in touch. We can help.

Our Treatment Team

The Clearfork Academy treatment center team has many years of combined experience in looking after young people with mental health and behavioral issues. At our residential treatment centers, teenagers receive support from trained professionals with expertise in fields including addiction treatment, psychiatry, psychotherapy, medical care, drug counseling, and education.

Some of our staff have recovered from substance abuse themselves which puts them in a great position to understand and support your teen through the recovery process.

Your teen will meet one-on-one with a licensed therapist once a week and take part in other therapies. These include group therapy, family therapy, and experiential therapy outdoors, enjoying the hustle and fun of a Texas ranch.

What Do We Treat at Your Teen Residential Treatment Program?

At Clearfork Academy, we provide substance abuse treatment and mental health support to girls and boys aged 13 to 18.

We know that substance use disorders are complex and that a young person may struggle with several substances at the same time. At our residential treatment center, your teenager will go through detox while monitored by medical staff who understand the physical and psychological impacts of different types of drugs.

We also know that addiction and chemical dependency often exist when a young person has co-occurring mental health issues such as eating disorders, anxiety, or trauma. Care for the mind is important at our residential treatment centers. If your teenager has any mental health disorders, we will provide them with dual-diagnosis treatment to give them the best chance of recovery.

Specialized Program for Females

Teenage girls aged 13 to 18 have their own residential treatment center at Cleburne. Here, they follow the same Clearfork Academy program as the boys but in an environment tailored to the needs of the female heart and mind. We encourage the girls to enjoy the hustle and fun philosophy of a Texas ranch, to believe in their inner strength, and to trust in Christ.

Specialized Program for Males

Our original adolescent residential treatment center in Fort Worth provides substance abuse and mental health care to boys aged 13 to 18. The treatment center program offers individual, group, and family therapies, life skills learning, and recreation and adventure therapy. Opportunities for fun include equine therapy, rope courses, paddle boats, and wilderness exploration. We aim to treat mind, body, and soul to ensure the best chance of long-term recovery.
