Residential Treatment Centers in Lake Ozark, Missouri

Calo Preteens and Calo Teens have merged to create Calo Programs, the first residential treatment centers in Lake Ozark, Missouri focused on adopted preteens and teens. The programs implement a true relational-based treatment approach to create change from the inside out – heart first and behavior second. Uniquely focused and well-equipped to treat students and families impacted by trauma occurring in developmental periods, Calo Programs helps students develop a healthy sense of self, and often address attachment issues.

How Our Residential Treatment Can Help

Calo Programs uses the Commitment, Acceptance, Secure, Attunement (CASA) Treatment Model to establish acceptance and security. Through the commitment and acceptance of caregivers, students receiving residential treatment can feel secure and attune, beginning to form healthy and safe relationships.

Implementing a relational treatment model, Calo uses evidence-based attachment research combined with the science of neurobiology to create real change. Their proprietary treatment approach is comprehensive and holistic, helping students find co-regulation and joy.

What to Expect

Students enrolled in our residential treatment center participate in weekly family and individual therapy, although at times, a crisis may change the frequency of the therapy. Calo Programs rely on family support and encourage family members to visit every 4-8 weeks. Each student is also encouraged to call his or her family weekly. Additionally, Calo hosts 4 annual parent events to give families an opportunity to connect with others who are on the same journey while engaging therapeutically with their child and therapists. The average stay for students is 12-15 months as they prioritize emotional, mental, behavioral, and physical health.

Residential Treatment and Transitional Living Programs

Our residential treatment and transitional living options are open to both females and males. Calo has a preteen program for boys and girls between the ages of 10-13 while their teen program serves older teens, ages 14-18. Both programs use unique interventions like adventure therapy, canine therapy, and neurofeedback therapy while also prioritizing academics and helping students balance the demands of life, play, and school.

Residential Therapies and Treatments Offered

Calo primarily helps students impacted by trauma such as from adoptions (or more accurately relinquishment from birth parents), chronic stress, disruptions in early childhood, and inconsistent care from caregivers. Most students at our residential treatment facility have struggled to be in a healthy relationship with their family and/or peers, often experience emotional dysregulation, and have difficulty maintaining safe behavior at home or in school. Students come to Calo Programs struggling with adoption issues, identity issues, reactive attachment disorder, and/or personality disorders.

Types of Therapy We Offer

Our students learn to develop attuned, empathetic, and safe relationships through healthy, repetitive relational therapy.

Both of our residential treatment centers in Missouri use unique interventions like adventure therapy, canine therapy, and neurofeedback therapy while also prioritizing academics and helping students balance the demands of life, play, and school.
