For Parents

Welcome to Newport Academy, we heal families. We want you to know that by being here you have taken a significant step in helping your family. While turmoil, pain, and frustration are often the product of adolescent behavior, there is hope! Those in need of treatment do recover and families heal.

At Newport Academy we believe in sustainable healing.

We strongly believe that the self-destructive behavior in which teens
are participating are external manifestations, or symptoms, of underlying, internal issues.

Through healing the underlying issues that are causing teens to act out—trauma, abandonment, low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, abuse, neglect, and incongruent family systems—we achieve the most positive, long-term results.

The maladaptive coping mechanisms for which we see teens enter treatment include self-harm, substance abuse, eating disorders, conduct disorders, and other forms of self-destructive behavior.

The Newport Academy Program provides the safety, support and, above all, the unconditional love that teens and their families need in order to heal. By incorporating multiple modalities of psychological and experiential therapies, and a dedication to treating the entire family, we offer the highest quality teen treatment program.

Newport Academy is a gender-specific, comprehensive, residential treatment program for adolescent girls and boys suffering from issues ranging from drug experimentation to addiction, anorexia to bulimia, depression to anxiety, and trauma to suicide attempts. We have all been in your shoes and we can help you. Our highly qualified staff provides special care to insure that each resident’s treatment is truly individualized to his or her unique needs. Truly individualized treatment helps guarantee that your family receives the best possible care.
