Military-Affiliated Children

Located less than 40 miles from Ft. Campbell Army Base, Oak Plains Academy is a TRICARE® Certified psychiatric residential treatment center for children (boys and girls) and adolescents ages 7–17, struggling with emotional and behavioral issues at our 98-bed residential treatment facility. Patients are separated onto units by age and intellectual functioning level.

Oak Plains Academy understands the common stressors military-affiliated children endure and are equipped and trained to address those needs.
