Esteemed All-Female Treatment Program Becomes Part of Newport Academy Family of Programs
Newport Academy, a series of leading adolescent and young adult treatment centers specializing in mental health, trauma, eating disorders, and substance use disorder, has welcomed Residence XII, a renowned all-female treatment program near Seattle, Washington, into its family of programs.
Almost a quarter of Washingtonians have a mental health disorder, which is a higher percentage than nearly every other state. Further, Mental Health America (MHA) found that 12.54 percent of teens and young adults in Washington State suffer from major depression. Sadly, six out of 10 young people in the state who have depression and who are most at risk of suicidal thoughts, difficulty in school, and difficulty in relationships do not get the treatment they need.
For nearly 40 years, Residence XII has been a trusted treatment resource for women struggling with substance use disorder (SUD), supporting them on the critical road to recovery. Newport Academy will expand the Kirkland recovery center’s services to treat girls and young women ages 14 – 24, providing primary mental healthcare, while addressing co-occurring issues of SUD. Liz Braun, PhD, will continue to lead the treatment center as Executive Director.
“We are so proud of the work of countless staff, whose dedication to the recovery of others has allowed so many women and their families to grow and thrive, and we look forward to continuing this great work together with Newport Academy,” said Dr. Braun.
“We are so pleased to add this well-regarded, successful program to our network of outstanding mental health treatment services, further addressing the mental health crisis in this country, and assisting individuals and families who often struggle in shame or silence.”

Chief Executive Officer of Newport Academy
