Outpatient Programming

The Newport Academy Outpatient Program treats teens and who are experiencing psychological, behavioral, or substance abuse issues, through a comprehensive evidence-based plan tailored for each individual that in tandem provides comprehensive local family therapy counseling. Now more than ever, teens and their families need therapeutic and academic options that can address the growing mental health issues during these challenging times. Teen depression, depression, and anxiety rates are at all time high, while teen’s social interactions have become more limited. Virtual schooling only accentuates these issues. While some teens have managed their mental health before, these extenuating circumstances are driving teens to need assistance like never before.

How It Works

Our Unique Approach to Academics

At Newport Academy, we partner with schools to optimize success for clients in our outpatient mental health treatment programs. Teens in our partial hospitalization program (PHP), spend time in the classroom and with specialized tutors each day, explore their strengths and passions while continuing to make progress in tandem with their grade level requirements. As patients make strides in their treatment, we work with their schools to gradually reintegrate them in a way that creates the highest potential for success.

Our Clinical Model

Upon joining the program, each client receives a personalized plan with a multi-phase system established by our expert treatment team. The plan builds upon what has been achieved in prior treatment, and is tailored for each individual’s goals and creative passions. The phase system provides incentive for progress and multiple opportunities for supported reflection along the way, focused on fostering self-awareness and strengthening family bonds.

“The Newport Academy team was ahead of the curve in launching remote care for their outpatient programs. Having that infrastructure in place when the pandemic hit earlier this year enabled them to shift all outpatient services to virtual formats almost immediately.”


Benefits of Our Summer Outpatient Program

Reintegration into the Community

As communities reopen and teens readjust to more in-person interaction, many young people are experiencing an increase in depression and anxiety, including social anxiety. The collective trauma experienced over the past year, combined with academic disengagement, and not feeling ready for the future, accentuates these issues. Now more than ever, teens and their families need specialized therapeutic and academic options to address adolescent mental health issues, which have become increasingly common during these challenging times.

Academic Progress & Executive Functioning Gains

Our Summer Outpatient Program is specifically designed to help young people overcome their mental health challenges, while continuing to progress academically and gaining the tools needed for age-appropriate executive functioning. Upon intake, students will be assessed by licensed teachers, and then personalized courses targeting each student’s gaps will be generated. Credit recovery options are available for students who have failed a class this year or who missed pertinent instruction. With the help of certified teachers, including math and science tutors on site, students have access to instructional support while progressing in their academics.

In addition, executive function skills support will be provided to help students who are struggling with attentional issues, organization, planning and time management, and emotional regulation, to gain their footing and get back on track. Through group lessons and workshops, students will gain valuable knowledge and skills that will help them improve motivation and success in the next school year.

Signs That Your Teen May Benefit from Our Program

  • Has your teen expressed concerns about returning to school?
  • Has your teen had a hard time academically over the last year?
  • Has your teen felt isolated and unable to engage in activities they once loved?
  • Does your teen feel a lack of motivation?
  • Is your teen suffering from apathy and boredom?

All of these might be signs that your teen’s well-being levels have dropped, and clinical and academic intervention are critical at this moment.

“We meet our kids where they are and find what works best for them to explore the issues they’re dealing with. For some, that’s music; for some, it’s art; for some, recreation; for some, academics. We find that little niche where we can begin to work with them, and having such a broad spectrum of services makes a huge difference.”

Gale Saler, Newport Executive Director, Virginia

Our Levels of Care

We know that each teen is unique, and it is essential for them to receive the level of care that is right for them. That’s why Newport Academy Outpatient Program offers three options: a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), and a weekly Outpatient Program.

What is the Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)?

Our Partial Hospitalization Program offers an all-day, Monday–Friday, on-location treatment plan, including academics and 4-5 hours of clinical sessions per day. Unlike our residential programs, the client continues to live at home during treatment. This is our highest level of outpatient care, for teens who need daily support and structure in a therapeutic environment.

What is the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)?

The Intensive Outpatient Program for youth is designed for teens and young adults who are beginning to meet vocational and educational goals and do not require all-day support as they continue their recovery. The IOP treatment program is three hours per day, Monday–Friday, and provides individual, family, and group therapy.

What is the Outpatient Program?

Outpatient treatment offers a flexible schedule, with the number of days/hours based on the individual’s clinical needs as well as their personal goals and the goals of the family. Our Outpatient Program may segue into or overlap with our Continuing Care program, which provides support for clients and families via text and live video sessions.

A Snapshot of Our Outpatient Program’s Therapeutic Offerings.

The clinical staff in our Outpatient Program is trained in multiple modalities, including Attachment-Based Family Therapy, a groundbreaking approach to healing the parent-child relationship. In addition to providing support groups and ongoing individual and family therapy sessions, our clinicians also present a monthly series, featuring experts speaking on relevant topics that parents need to know about.

Multi-Family Group

This weekly group brings together all outpatient families to focus on issues such as effective communication, healthy boundaries, conflict resolution, family dynamics, and parenting skills.

Individual Therapy Sessions

Clients attend weekly therapy sessions with their assigned teen therapist during phase one, and then on an as-needed basis.

Parent Support Group

This weekly group gives parents a forum to gather in a supportive environment, without their children, to discuss various issues.

Individual Recovery Therapy Sessions

Clients attend weekly counseling sessions with a certified counselor for the duration of their participation, to keep the focus on their recovery.

Family Therapy Sessions

Clients and their families have weekly or bimonthly sessions with their assigned family therapist, designed to encourage positive communication and increased awareness of self and others.

Experiential Therapies/Groups

Clients have the opportunity to participate in a variety of experiential therapies including (but not limited to) music therapy, yoga, and meditation.
