Newport Academy…in her own words
“My own family experienced the disease of addiction and did not have the tools or guidance needed to heal. I am grateful for the opportunity to give back and to support families during times of crisis. On a daily basis, I get to see teens and families experience change and develop new strengths. That’s the best ‘payday’ I could ask for. I value and deeply appreciate that Newport Academy continues to work toward better solutions in assisting families through their difficult and most important work.” —Heather Hagen
