Newport Academy was founded with the mission to provide teens and their families with the highest-quality care and treatment for trauma, mental health issues, eating disorders, and substance abuse.

“We founded Newport Academy, teen treatment centers that provide the highest-quality care, to bring sustainable healing to teens who are struggling as I once was. We offer family-focused and results-oriented programs that treat the underlying causes and conditions of destructive behaviors. It is from a foundation of compassion and love that we provide a truly unparalleled level of care for teens and families.”

– Jamison Monroe, Founder & CEO

  • Struggling teens are not “broken.”

Rather, they are confronting the human experience of coming into conflict with their environments as they develop and grow, a process that is especially intense for adolescents. When society teaches teens that they are “not enough,” they sometimes seek to address that pain with dysfunctional behaviors. What they are truly in search of is a sense of belonging and connection with themselves and those around them. At Newport Academy, we’re a different kind of teen rehab. We give teens the life skills and self-understanding that allows them to find their place in the world.

  • The core issue we address is a lack of self-esteem.

When adolescents arrive at Newport Academy, they are typically struggling with insecurity and low self-esteem. Our approach, as a teen treatment center, is to address the core issues that cause depression, teen anxiety, and self-destructive behaviors. When we look past behaviors, we are able to see the underlying catalysts that exist at a much deeper level. We guide our teens through their struggles and help them find a path to self-acceptance and healthy living.

  • Our philosophy is love.

We meet our teens where they are, and provide a safe, accepting, and nurturing environment in which deep issues can surface and be addressed. When an adolescent arrives at Newport Academy, our compassionate staff loves them until they can love themselves. The internal healing begins as they learn to see themselves as beautiful, bright, and powerful people who are able to take control of their own lives. Unconditional love is the foundation of this transformative process and key to our approach to teen rehab.

  • Family therapy is a primary focus of the treatment process.

Teens are a product of their environment and family system, and many families experience some level of dysfunction. We require families to put effort into their recovery as part of the treatment process. Our therapists and psychiatrists facilitate weekly family therapy sessions to address issues that have negatively affected the family dynamic and support families in working through those issues to restore harmony. We also host families at our teen treatment centers on Saturdays, in a structured environment, to practice the coping and communication skills that are essential to building a healthy family.

  • We believe comprehensive and successful treatment takes time and requires varied therapeutic modalities.

We provide an ideal environment for teens to begin their recovery in a loving, supportive home. Inpatient Residential stays at Newport Academy range from 45 to 120 days in a gender-specific residential setting. Our gender-specific treatment model sets the stage for the most effective teen rehab for teen depression, teen anxiety, substance abuse, and other mental health concerns. We allow adolescents to address their individual needs without distraction.

The Newport Academy Outpatient Program is designed to help teens transitioning from Residential treatment to continue their daily recovery in a structured and secure environment. The Newport Academy Day Schools provide a balance between recovery counseling and academic programming, ensuring that students abstain from self-destructive behaviors while earning a high school diploma and studying for college entrance exams.

  • Our treatment team has more than 300 years of combined clinical experience.

Our clinicians and practitioners are seasoned in the fields of mental health and substance abuse. Our clinical team members bring expertise from prestigious educational backgrounds and respected schools, such as Yale, Harvard, McGill, the University of California, and NYU. Our practitioners offering experiential modalities have practiced under leaders in the field of complementary, integrative care.

  • We achieve results.
