Newport Academy…in her own words.

“Newport Academy has a holistic treatment model that is rare to find in adolescent mental health treatment. Newport’s dedication to low therapist caseloads allows for individualized and comprehensive treatment for all clients and families. The ability to serve clients over months rather than weeks allows for progress and stabilization that is difficult to accomplish in most traditional PHP and IOP programs. The emphasis on family treatment is a needed and often missing component of adolescent treatment.”–Beth Hanline
