“I’m finally getting to writing this review a few years after our daughter attended Newport Academy in Newport Ca.

Bottom Line Up Front:  Newport Academy saved our daughters life.

After months of going from one psychiatrist to another, one mental facility to another and too many visits to the emergency room my wife found Newport Academy and Dr. Barbara in a desperate Internet search. Lucky for us, we were able to find the money required for the deposit, we were able to get our daughter in within a few days.

We found the staff at Newport Academy to be great. They were attentive, frequently communicated with us and kept out daughter safe. We visited from Colorado every other week and attended group and family sessions as well as the local Al-Anon meetings. Dr. Barbara Nosal, with a doctorate degree in transpersonal psychology, was a godsend – she is an experienced professional that takes a no-non sense approach to helping teens. Anna, Aja, Jordan, Donata, Amy, Kelsey and many others were fantastic and will be remembered forever.

We have recommended Newport Academy to other families and they have had similar, successful results. While it appears from their web page that they are focused on drug or alcohol related issues, they do way more than that as our daughter did not have these issues and she was helped.

I highly recommend Newport Academy.”
