Calo’s treatment programs, providing therapeutic treatment for teenagers and pre-teenagers, are located in residential areas in order to promote recovery and healing. If your teen struggles with multiple psychological and emotional issues, we are here to provide help, not just for your teenager, but your entire family. Calo is the residential treatment program of choice for families to help your teen overcome problems including substance abuse, addiction, learning difficulties and mental disorders.

We are located on the shores of beautiful Lake of the Ozarks in central Missouri.

At Calo, we treat a very specific subset of the struggling teen population: we heal the effects of childhood trauma using an attachment paradigm. Emotionally unstable teens with a history of trauma and wounded in the areas of empathy, altruism, and relationship formation are our focus. Healing this damage requires that lasting change be created within the context of safe relationships, not by virtue of consequences and rewards. We’d be happy to help you gather all the information you need to make the best decision regarding treatment for your teen.n.


Better life choices

While it may seem impossible now, with the right treatment, your teen will likely experience a full recovery and lead a healthy, productive life. We’ve seen it happen over and over again. Calo takes great pride in putting together the best therapeutic teams possible, and we work diligently with each resident to help them decide for themselves how to make better life choices.

Heart first and behavior second

Calo’s Residential Treatment Programs serve teens ages 9 to 18. While some treatment programs offer only temporary non-transitional fixes, Calo is different. It was created with the need for specialty care in mind. Calo adopts a true relational-based treatment approach to create change from the inside out… heart first, and behavior second.
