We remove the stigma around mental health and substance abuse issues and provide compassionate care that leads to self-awareness, confidence, and self-esteem.
Our comprehensive approach is a different kind of teen rehab and incorporates clinical, therapeutic, and holistic modalities to treat the individual teen and the whole family. Our core mission, as a teen treatment center, is to establish healthy communication and connection between teens and their families, and bring them from darkness to light.
Each teen attends multiple weekly sessions with the expert clinicians and psychiatrists who make up his or her personal eight-member Treatment Team.
Our compassionate recovery program is rooted in the development of a strong
sense of self-acceptance and self-worth, to ensure a lifelong commitment to personal recovery and happiness.
Body Image Group
This therapeutic process group provides a gender-specific, safe, and supportive enviroment for teens to express their concerns about body perceptions and external appearance.
We treat adolescents in the context of the entire family. Family members participate in weekly therapy, recovery work, and monitored group activities on weekends.
Our approach to nutrition focuses on healthy lifestyle choices and eating habits. As part of our unconventional teen rehab programming, nutritionists and culinary staff educate residents about proper nutrition and create healthy meal plans with the kids.
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
helps residents acknowledge the unhealthy behaviors they are using to cope with deeper underlying issues, and develop ways to modify these behaviors.
We perform a thorough clinical assessment to determine each incoming resident’s specific needs and create an individualized treatment plan that encompasses a variety of therapeutic modalities.
Daily group therapy sessions allow residents to build healthy relationships, support one another, and discuss the healing process together.
In our psychoeducation groups, Newport Academy’s clinical professionals educate teens on how the brain works, so they can begin to positively change their thought processes and overall mental health.
Newport Academy’s licensed, highly qualified clinicians are trained in adolescent health and development. Our medical staff is available to oversee residents 24 hours a day.

Teens learn to acknowledge and express their deep-rooted emotions through making and listening to music, and spend time playing music together.
Adventure Therapy includes rock climbing, paddle boarding, surfing, hiking, ropes courses, and kayaking. While developing new skills, teens work through discomfort as they gain confidence and learn to have fun in recovery; a different kind of teen rehab.

Martial Arts sessions provide opportunities to work through mental challenges via a physical outlet. This offers a new lens to help one understand and heal from mental health and addiction issues.

Individualized pacing with specialized tutors allows our team the flexibility to provide extensive support to our students in preparation for AP, SAT, or ACT exams.
Our staff creates tailored instruction for each student, informed by a combination of neuropsychoeducational test results, current transcripts, family/parent input, and input from the teen’s current school.
Each student receives an Individualized Academic Plan (IAP) aligned with ageappropriate state standards, incorporating academic skills, neuropsychoeducational testing, parental input, and personal recovery needs.
We provide neuropsychoeducational testing in the areas of academic achievement, cognitive abilities, and social/emotional development.
Newport Academy teachers communicate weekly with families to provide updates on academic progress, ensuring that each teen stays on track for success.
Every morning, our teens spend time setting goals, stating positive affirmations, and accessing spiritual connection. This starts the day from a foundation of calm and self-reflection.
Throughout the week, teens at Newport Academy perform an Inventory and Reflection exercise, which is very productive in the therapeutic healing process.
Church, Synagogue, Temple
We honor all religious affiliations and offer residents the opportunity to attend church, temple, or synagogue to maintain their spiritual practices while in treatment. Spiritual connection is hugely beneficial for teens seeking meaning and purpose in their lives.
Accessing spiritual connection is an integral part of Newport Academy’s holistic treatment philosophy. Meditation modalities sustain our teens’ commitment to healing and recovery. Beginning a therapy session with meditation can also help adolescents participate with greater intent, comfort, and ease.
