The Newport Academy Approach
Teens come to Newport Academy’s rehab programs because they’ve experienced one or more mental health issues, such as teen anxiety, teen depression, teen PTSD, eating disorders, self-harm, or substance abuse. Our expertise, attentiveness, and compassionate care provide adolescents with a supportive, nurturing environment. This safe space allows teens to explore teen trauma, emotional pain, destructive patterns, or challenges that have impacted their lives. In this welcoming environment, teens find a strong foundation from which to grow and thrive.
Every single one of our clients is part of a family system. When one is struggling, others are struggling, so our treatment approach to teen counseling incorporates family counseling as well. We focus on healing and support for the whole family. Through innovative models, such as Attachment-Based Family Therapy, DBT, CBT, and experiential and somatic therapies, we guide families to healthy patterns of communication and connection. As we create safe space for the entire family, we modify patterns that have been unhealthy.
The Newport Academy treatment team identifies and treats the underlying causes and conditions that lead to destructive behaviors. It is this unsurpassed level of care that drives our success. In fact, 85 percent of clients who successfully complete treatment at Newport Academy don’t need additional residential placement. Our adolescent treatment program is simply the best in the field.

What are some of the major differences between residential treatment programs and wilderness programs?
At Newport Academy, we offer teen counseling treatment programs in the comfort of a home-like setting, so teens can explore themselves and their behaviors in a loving environment. In the Newport Academy Residential Program, we work closely with families every step of the way in order to ensure a positive transformation in the entire family system. We do not enact punitive models of behavior modification.
Residential treatment centers for teens have been proven to generate long-term healing. With this in mind, lifelong sustainability is built into the foundation of our model of treatment. We don’t just treat symptoms. We also address the underlying causes and conditions so that true healing can take hold.
How many teens are in your program at any given time?
We offer a very high staff-to-teen ratio of 5:1. As a result, at any given time, teens will be in the company of five to nine same-sex peers.
What are the other teens in treatment like?
The adolescents we treat at Newport Academy are bright, shining spirits, who have been impacted by a myriad of mental health issues. Hence, they have experienced trauma, anxiety, depression, eating issues, and/or substance use.
What is the average length of stay at Newport Academy?
The average length of stay for our Residential Program is 60 to 90 days, depending on individual treatment and teen counseling needs, while the average length of stay for our Outpatient and Therapeutic Day School programs is 60 days to one year.
Who will be providing treatment?
Each individual treatment team consists of eight experts who specialize in teen trauma and mental health disorders, including medical staff, clinicians, counselors, and experiential therapy practitioners.
Each program is personalized based on the individual’s unique needs.
Who owns and operates Newport Academy?
What is the role of the family in the treatment process?
Family members are expected to be involved at every step of the way in our mental health treatment and teen counseling programs. We know that sustainable healing and recovery must occur within the context of a teen’s relationships with loved ones. Therefore, helping our parents and teens rebuild their family system is an integral part of our treatment process.
