Newport Academy…in her own words
“Newport Academy provides a safe, dynamic, and intensive program in which the entire family is able to become stronger and more supportive of their family system and of their family member struggling with mental illness or substance use. Recovery is a family journey, and only through the work of the entire family can healing happen.” — Samantha Quigneaux
