We provide a safe and nurturing environment for female teens to explore sensitive issues.
Our Female Residential Treatment Program is designed to help young women learn how to be expressive, accept constructive feedback, and develop self-esteem without the pressure found in mixed-gender environments. Gender-specific environments allow teens to feel comfortable and build strong peer support, which is essential in the treatment and recovery process. Strong peer interaction can help girls cultivate healthy boundaries, safely discuss sensitive issues, and develop positive relationships with other females.
Our seasoned therapeutic staff has decades of clinical experience in treating female adolescents, providing positive role modeling, and supporting female residents as they transition from self-destruction to self-esteem.
A Day in the Life
On any given day of treatment at Newport Academy, female teens will have the opportunity to experience one-on-one therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, music therapy, Equine Therapy, adventure therapy, martial arts, therapeutic process groups, yoga, meditation, and many other dynamic activities, all while maintaining their academic progress. Life in treatment can be challenging, but also incredibly fulfilling and joyful. We focus on teaching our teens that life is full of wonder and hope.
The following schedule is a snapshot of the integrated approach to education, therapy, inspiration, and reflection that a teen girl enrolled in the Newport Academy Residential Program experiences each week.
