Accreditation, Licensing, & Affiliations

Our innovative approach to mental healthcare earns accolades from press around the world, but it is our dedication to our client success that has helped us achieve accreditation from The Joint Commission, exceed licensing standards of care, and nurture affiliations with the following:

Research shows that the long-term effects of popularity in high school are neither all good nor all bad. While some studies show that having a wide #circleoffriends as a teenager is beneficial, it’s the quality of those relationships that matters most, not the quantity. In addition, striving for #socialcapital in the age of social media can have a significant #negativeimpact on well-being during adolescence.⁠

Today we observe Transgender Day of Remembrance. #TDOR was started in 1999 by transgender advocate Gwendolyn Ann Smith, to honor the memory of Rita Hester, a transgender woman who was killed in 1998. This day provides a forum for transgender organizations, individuals, and allies to raise awareness of the threat of violence faced by #gendervariant people and the persistence of prejudice toward the transgender community. The @trevorproject 2021 survey emphasizes the importance of #LGBTQ affirming practices and living environments, as well as the importance of having a support network and being surrounded by people who respect one’s identity. According to the Trevor Project, trans and nonbinary youth whose households fully respect their pronouns are 50% less likely to attempt suicide than those whose pronouns are not respected.⁠

Today marks #NationalParentalInvolvementDay, an opportunity to honor and highlight the powerful contributions that parents and caregivers provide at school and at home to support student success. In order to progress academically, students need to be healthy, both physically and #emotionally. Nearly every parent and caregiver knows how to test whether a child has a fever—but do they know how to do a mental health temperature check? Trauma, depression, and anxiety can’t be measured with a thermometer, but there are ways to track how a teen is doing on an emotional level. ⁠

We’re proud to announce that both Newport Academy and our sister program @Newport_Institute are now providing compassionate, outcomes-driven care in Minnesota, serving teens, young adults, and families throughout the Midwest. ⁠

Young people in Minnesota are struggling with trauma, anxiety, depression, and loneliness. Nearly a quarter of 11th graders in the state have considered suicide. Yet fewer than 50% of youth here have received any treatment for their mental health issues. ⁠

We’re working to address this need in Minnesota and beyond its borders, providing specialized care for these critical stages of life. ⁠

Not located in Minnesota? We offer programs nationwide. 👆🏻👆🏼👆🏾👆 on our #linkinbio to learn more.

Sadfishing—you’ve probably seen it on your social media feeds, even if you didn’t know the name for it. A teary-eyed selfie, or a few cryptic lines about how bad the person is feeling—followed by lots of comments offering love and support. People of all ages engage in #sadfishing behavior, including celebrities who write openly about their challenges.⁠

Teens who post about their #unhappiness on social media are often truly experiencing difficult emotions. Whether a teen is sadfishing due to a bad mood, feelings of #hopelessness, or an underlying #mentalhealthissue, parents need to be aware and be involved.⁠

October is #nationalbullyingpreventionmonth. Founded by PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center, this month-long event is dedicated to preventing #childhoodbullying and promoting kindness, acceptance, and inclusion. Some parents and teenagers may underestimate the seriousness of bullying and the long-term effects it can have on teens. In fact, bullying can lead to teen depression, substance abuse, and in extreme circumstances, teen suicide. It is important for parents to teach their teenagers that bullying is wrong and that they should not stay silent. ⁠

TeenRehab.com, our complimentary online resource dedicated to raising awareness around teen drug abuse, substance abuse, and alcohol addiction, compiled a list of 5 real-life movies about bullying in high schools that shed light on the negative impact bullying has on its victims. Understanding the impact of teenage bullying helps parents, teachers and other mentors guide teenagers in making decisions, establishing positive morals, and being strong when faced with bullying. 👆🏻👆🏼👆🏾👆 our #linkinbio to learn more.

With roots in Orange County, CA, where we opened our first treatment center 12 years ago, Newport now extends to a national network of evidence-based healing centers for teens and young adults, with locations in CA, CT, GA, MD, MN, PA, TX, UT, VA, WA, and more opening soon.

In honor of World Mental Health Day, Newport Academy planted #hopegardens across our nationwide network of #treatmentcenters to raise awareness around the mental health concerns facing teens and young adults today. Surrounding each Hope Tree, Newport patients and staff placed flat rocks which they painted with mantras that symbolize and #inspirehope. These mantras will stand as a testament to endurance and resilience so needed today.

What mantras inspire hope in you? Let us know in the comments.

The @WHO’s latest statistics found that depression is one of the leading causes of disability, and suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death among 15- to 29-year-olds. The consequences of not addressing adolescent mental health conditions extend to adulthood, limiting opportunities to lead fulfilling lives.

We want to help change that!

In honor of #worldmentalhealthday2021 on October 10, Newport Academy planted #hopegardens across its nationwide network of #treatmentcenters to raise awareness around the #mentalhealthconcerns facing teens and young adults today.

Surrounding each Hope Tree, our patients created rock gardens using flat rocks painted with mantras that symbolize and inspire hope. Words like courage, worth, hope, self-love, unity, and compassion stand as a testament of the endurance and resilience so needed today. We will be posting captures from this #celebrationofhope in the coming days. In the meantime, you can 👆🏻👆🏼👆🏾👆 #linkinbio to learn how Newport has helped bring back hope to our patients.

Today marks #WorldMentalHealthDay2021, a day dedicated to raising awareness of #mentalhealthissues. Depression and anxiety are among the most common #mentalhealthconditions experienced by young people. Did you know that 1 in 7 young men between ages 16 and 24 experience depression or anxiety each year? However, evidence shows that boys disconnect from #healthcareservices during adolescence. While girls are encouraged to talk about their feelings, boys are still socialized to be “tough” and to “man up” when they express vulnerability or self-doubt. As a result, teen boys are far less likely than girls to talk with friends or family about their mental health. 👆🏻👆🏼👆🏾👆 on our #linkinbio to learn how you can push those barriers and start the conversion ...
