We are pleased to welcome Dr. Ken Huey as the Executive Director of Havenwood Academy
Dr. Ken Huey joins Havenwood Academy as Executive Director. Ken has a long history of working in behavioral health and founded one of the most established residential treatment centers in the nation. We’re incredibly excited to have him on board to help guide Havenwood Academy in creating the perfect healing place for teen girls with trauma and attachment-related issues. We’d like to thank Eric Allred for his dedication and leadership in our program. We are incredibly grateful for all your work.
Ken Huey completed a Ph.D. in Marriage and Family Therapy at Purdue University in 2002. Dr. Huey’s first job after that doctorate was in an adolescent residential treatment setting as a therapist. That job changed the course of his career. In that setting, where almost all of the variables impacting a teen were controlled, positive change became a likely outcome instead of a surprise.
Being adopted himself, Dr. Huey was always drawn to the large population of other adoptees in residential treatment. He ultimately became convinced that this population needed specialty care and in November of 2006, Dr. Huey founded Calo. Calo was and is a specialty program for adopted youth who have a significant trauma history. Calo grew to a 200 plus employee organization with about the same numbers of teen clients served each year.
After selling his ownership in Calo Dr. Huey enjoyed semi retirement for a number of years. After some time off he began looking for a career and team fit in the residential world and became acquainted with Havenwood. He joined Havenwood as Executive Director in October of 2020.
Dr. Huey and his wife, Bev, are the parents of 6 children. They will be welcoming their third
grandchild into the family in December of 2020.
