Teen Male Residential Care

Residential Treatment Facilities for Teenage Boys

The right environment is key for successful treatment. Our teen male residential treatment centers for ages 12-18 span the length of the East and West Coasts. Each location offers comfort and natural beauty to cultivate transformation and healing from mental health issues, trauma, eating disorders, and substance abuse.

Our dual diagnosis residential treatment centers for teen boys are in well-appointed, cozy houses, with comfortable living areas, dining areas for family-style meals, fully equipped gyms, and art and music studios. All our locations are close to beautiful parks, walking trails, and nature preserves—ideal for hikes, team challenges, and Adventure Therapy.

Gender-Specific and Age-Specialized Treatment

At Newport Academy, we provide gender-responsive care, meaning that teen boys are treated in separate residential treatment programs and live in separate housing. Years of experience and research have taught us that gender-responsive care supports teen boys in opening up, engaging with treatment, and forming authentic and honest connections. Moreover, Newport Academy’s clinicians and staff have specialized training in treating LGBTQ teens. Our treatment is also specialized for the specific age and stage of our clients: We recognize the many pressures and challenges that teens face in today’s uncertain world.

Is Residential Care the Right Fit for My Son?

If your son is struggling with anxiety, depression, substance use disorder, anger issues, or PTSD, residential treatment is often the most effective approach for addressing underlying issues and achieving sustainable healing. Experts recommend longer stays in teen residential treatment in order to achieve successful outcomes. That’s because it takes time to uncover and heal the root causes of behavioral issues, especially when teen boys have co-occurring disorders like substance abuse or eating disorders (known as a dual diagnosis).

The Long-Term Benefits of Residential Care

Parents often ask us, “Why should I consider residential care for my son?” The benefits of teen treatment are numerous and will positively impact your son for his entire life. In addition to addressing the root causes of mental health disorders, residential mental health treatments gives teen boys tools for healthy coping and builds their emotional regulation. Moreover, they learn relationship and communication skills, and form strong, authentic connections with peers and mentors. You will likely see a difference very quickly when your teen son begins residential treatment.

The Rewards of Treatment for Teen Boys

Wondering how to convince your son to start residential treatment? Let him know that his time in treatment will be hard work, but it will also be fun and meaningful. With experiential activities like Adventure Therapy (including ropes courses, rock climbing, and ziplining), Equine-Assisted Therapy, and Mixed Martial Arts (depending on location), residential treatment for teen boys can be exciting and empowering—providing the healthy challenge and skill mastery that supports adolescent male mental health and self-esteem.
