Newport Academy residential programs for teens provide a safe and nurturing environment for girls to explore sensitive issues without distraction. Our program is designed to help teen girls learn how to claim their voice, accept constructive feedback, and develop self-esteem, without the pressure found in mixed-gender environments. Positive peer interaction helps adolescent girls cultivate healthy boundaries and develop strong relationships with other females.
Gender-specific residential programs for young adults allow young men to focus on aspects of their recovery that might be difficult to discuss in dual-gender settings. This nurturing experience creates a space for compassion, trust, and camaraderie. We foster an environment where young adults can express themselves, discover their creative passions, and identify their next steps as they progress towards independent life.

Know the Facts.
Residential treatment for teens and young adults requires an adequate period of time to generate lasting change. The minimal length of residential treatment depends on the type and extent of the adolescent’s challenges, but studies show that outcomes are better when an individual stays in treatment for three months or more. nih.gov
