Who We Help

Clearfork Academy

Clearfork Academy is a Christ-centered residential treatment program for adolescent boys between the ages of 13 and 18 years old who struggle with substance abuse or addiction and the accompanying mental health and behavioral issues.

“Because we loved you so much, we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well.”

1 Thessalonians 2:8

What To Expect

Addiction is a powerful thing. Substance abuse rehabilitation requires more than behavioral modification; it requires a heart change. Jesus is the one best qualified to change hearts, so He’s central to all we do at Clearfork.

Clearfork Academy is a family-style living environment set on a ranch overlooking Eagle Mountain Lake. Residents learn, exercise, eat, play, and pray together with the goal of helping each other beat their addictions.

Therapy Programs

Our staff uses a variety of therapies to address the variety of needs people in the grips of addiction face. Families join us for therapeutic activities on the weekend so we are able to provide an all-encompassing approach to recovery. It’s not always easy or comfortable, but we always have the residents’ best interests in mind.

How To Apply

We have a limited number of beds and want to be sure our therapeutic programs are a good fit for your teen boy. Start the process by filling out our contact questionnaire. From there, one of our clinicians will follow up with you to gather specifics about your teen’s current situation, your payment options, and to discuss when we anticipate having space available.
