Newport Academy…in her own words

“I was initially attracted to Newport because of the holistic and innovative therapies provided.  When I interviewed, I was so impressed by the kindness and dedication of the staff. When I joined the team there was no doubt it was the right fit. Being part of a team that cares so deeply and works as hard as NA staff do is both rewarding and exciting.”—Meredith Hettler
