Welcome & Thank You
Welcome to Natchez Trace Youth Academy, one of Tennessee’s leading residential treatment facilities. At Natchez Trace, we are committed to providing the highest quality of care in a secure, deliberate, exhilarating environment that leads to healing and growth. We seek to stabilize behavior, assess physical and psychological health so that our student can blaze trails for success!
When Natchez Trace opened in 2000, we had 32 beds. Today, our facility includes four dormitories with 115 licensed beds, a full gymnasium, nursing facilities, and a fully certified school. In addition to pursuing an education, our students have the opportunity to enroll in vocational classes that can lead to certification in construction, auto mechanics, and small engine repair. We are committed to continuously searching for new ways to improve our facility and make it an ideal place for children and adolescents to receive care.
I am joined by a team of leaders who are proficient in their field and share the vision and passion necessary to produce the most ideal possible programs available. On behalf of myself and the entire staff at Natchez Trace Youth Academy, thank you for the opportunity to be a part of your recovery. If you are seeking help for youth, I invite you to contact us today with questions or to receive more information on our programs and treatment.
