Individual Therapy

Individual Therapy at Newport Academy is conducted by expert clinicians and psychiatrists who perform a thorough clinical assessment. This then determines each teen’s specific needs. As a result, we create an individualized treatment plan that encompasses a variety of counseling and therapeutic modalities. Each resident attends multiple weekly sessions with the clinicians who make up his or her individual eight-person Treatment Team.

Evidence-Based Approach

Our therapeutic program integrates a wide range of evidence-based approaches, including:

  • Dialectic Behavioral Therapy, which helps people identify their strengths and build on them, while also identifying the thoughts, beliefs, and assumptions that make life more difficult
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, which focuses on examining the relationships between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, in order to modify patterns of thinking to improve coping skills
  • Motivational Enhancement Therapy, inspiring adolescents to seek healing and transformation through their own volition, rather than  threats, coercion, or reward
  • Elements of the 12-Step Program, as tools to help residents face their limitations and view reality through a more objective lens

Our clinicians also integrate other modalities into each resident’s treatment plan. These modalities include experiential therapy, mindfulness practice, in addition to other techniques targeted to each individual’s specific needs.

“We’ve assembled a dynamic team of skilled clinicians who are well-versed in various therapeutic modalities in order to provide a truly comprehensive, cutting-edge approach to individualized treatment.”
