What are some of the major differences between residential treatment programs and wilderness programs?

At Newport Academy, we offer 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 for true healing to 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 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.

Who owns and operates Newport Academy?

Newport Academy is family-owned and operated by the Monroe family.

What is the role of the family in the treatment process?

Family members are expected to be involved every step of the way. We know that sustainable healing and recovery must occur within the context of a teen’s relationships with loved ones, and helping our parents and teens rebuild their family system is an integral part of our treatment process.

What is the academic program like at Newport Academy?

Newport Academy offers academic programming in our residential programs for four hours a day, five days a week. We also have stand-alone private high schools that offer:

  • An accredited curriculum designed to fit the needs of each student
  • High staff-to-student ratio (1:2) for individualized attention and tutoring
  • Daily process groups and recovery counseling
  • Academic and cognitive testing
  • SAT and ACT prep
  • College application support.

Do you provide gender-specific treatment?

Yes, we provide gender-specific treatment. We feel strongly about providing teens with the opportunity to focus completely on their own healing, without distraction.

Will my family’s confidentiality be protected?


Are treatment programs for teens different than programs for adults?

Yes. Adolescents have specific mental health and developmental issues, which, as a result, that require specific treatment approaches.

Do you provide any services other than residential treatment?

Yes. We provide Day treatment and Outpatient treatment, as well as private high schools where students can continue their recovery and develop friendships in a supportive and safe environment.

Do residents attend 12-Step meetings?

Most of our residents do. Therefore, introducing our teens to local recovery communities is part of the treatment process.

Will I be able to visit my teen during treatment?

Yes. We offer family visitation on weekends.

How often will you communicate with me about my teen’s progress?

Parents are updated by the treatment team every week, at a minimum.

Will Newport Academy collaborate with my teen’s current therapist?

What are the sleeping arrangements like?

When I come to treatment, what should I bring with me?

Bring about 10 days’ worth of clothing that is seasonally appropriate. Bring comfortable clothes and workout clothes. We have laundry facilities in each of our houses, so you will be able to wash your clothes while you are here.

What will my average day be like?

The daily schedule at Newport Academy reflects our integrated approach to treatment, involving a wide range of modalities and experiences. On any given day, teens and young adults may participate in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Music Therapy, Equine Therapy, Adventure Therapy, martial arts, yoga and meditation, and many other dynamic activities. In our residential program, teens also have ongoing opportunities to process their learning and inner growth in both individual and group therapy sessions. In addition, the daily schedule provides time for academic and life-skills work, and includes meals eaten family-style with peers and staff. Life in treatment can be challenging, but also incredibly fulfilling, inspiring, and joyful.

How often will I receive individual therapy?

As often as the treatment team feels is necessary—which could be once a day or a few times a week.

How will being in treatment impact my school attendance/school work?

While you are at Newport Academy, our credentialed teaching staff will confidentially work with your teachers at your home school to develop an Individualized Education Plan to meet your specific academic needs. Through the collaborative efforts of our team approach, you can keep current with your home school curriculum and excel academically.

Will I be asked to do excessive chores while in the program?

No. Your house will work together as a team, and daily chores will be split up among all residents.
