“Newport Academy showed me the solution to my problem. It’s not impossible, and it’s not just for some people.”

– Jake, Newport Academy alumni

Teen Male Residential Treatment Center

The rates of substance abuse, tech addiction, depression, eating disorders, and other mental health conditions are climbing among the current generation of teens and young men. This represents a growing problem that is often underestimated, especially among boys. The symptoms of underlying trauma in boys are sometimes dismissed as “just part of growing up.”

Adolescent men rely heavily on role models to help them navigate through their formative years—both at home and at school. Being surrounded by the right people to look up to and draw inspiration from can make all the difference.

Tailored Treatment

Our evidence-based residential programs for teens have changed the lives of teenagers across the country. Part of what makes our approach so successful is that each teen or young adult receives personalized treatment, based on both their gender and the specific issues they face—whether that’s trauma, gaming or tech addiction, eating disorders, substance abuse, or other mental health issues, such as providing residential treatment programs for teenage depression.

Newport Academy offers residential programs for teens that are gender specific. Boys receive tailored treatment developed and delivered by expert clinical and experiential therapists, as well as individualized education. Our excellent academic program not only keeps kids on track with their studies, it’s also designed to positively impact their confidence, engagement, and sense of accomplishment—supporting their process of healing and recovery.

“Because of the foundation—the very strong foundation—that Newport Academy has given my son, he’s ready to start his life and start his second chance.”

Jim, Parent of a Newport Academy alumni

In a Newport Academy male residential treatment center, our team of mental health leaders and addiction treatment professionals spans psychiatrists, psychologists, family therapists, eating disorder therapists, nurse practitioners, counselors, equine therapists, art therapists, music therapists, adventure therapists, registered dietitians, nutritionists, teachers, and private tutors—a growing roster of experts from all over the world, with a wide range of degrees and experience.

This nurturing experience creates a space for compassion, trust, and camaraderie among residents at our centers for troubled teens. Friendship and bonding are essential in developing personal accountability and self-awareness.
