Carl and Loretta Olding founded Elk Mountain Academy in 1994 based on a 12-Step AA foundation. They both possess a compassion for young men who exhibit the behaviors of an alcoholic or an addict. This desire stems from life altering experiences and knowledge that they have gained through life. Carl is a 23-year recovering alcoholic/addict, who changed his life and became clean through the AA process. He is able to share with the young men that come to our program exactly how he became sober, showing them how they too can become sober individuals and enjoy life.

We recognize the differences that exist from one student to the other, so we admit students on an individual basis not on a """"""""cookie-cutter"""""""" admittance policy
