Newport Institute – Young Adult Female Residential Treatment Center

Young women are facing an escalating mental health crisis, reporting the highest stress and depression rates of any generation. The pressures of finding a purpose in life, along with feelings of isolation, body-image issues, and low self-esteem fostered by excessive social media use, can lead to eating disorders, substance abuse, social anxiety, or self-harm. Newport Institute’s young women’s residential treatment centers address the root causes of these symptoms. Our tailored mental health programs for young adults support residents to achieve recovery that stands the test of time.

Finding a Purpose

Newport Institute’s young women’s residential treatment program is an evidence-based, tailored approach to providing young women ages 18 to 27 with the foundation, treatment, and support they need to overcome the problems they are facing and find a path forward.

Every young adult who comes to Newport Institute’s residential treatment center for young adults has different requirements and a different background. Some have unresolved trauma, eating disorders, or substance abuse issues. Many have tried mental health programs for young adults or treatment in the past, and it failed to make a difference. Others have simply lost focus or become overwhelmed by the pressures of growing up. The experienced staff of our residential treatment center for young adults nurtures our clients’ specific physical, psychological, and educational needs, offering three levels of care and a fully customizable range of activities—everything from career coaching to finance-management training to animal-assisted therapy.

“A year ago, my life was black and grey and just dark, and now it is full of every color imaginable. There are still dark moments, but they get brighter every day. Newport Academy is special because it works. The staff was always there when you needed something. There was never a moment when I felt alone.”

Dedicated Treatment Team

In the Newport Institute mental health programs for young adults, 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.

Our programs for struggling young adults are designed to help young women learn how to find their voice, accept constructive feedback, and develop self-esteem and self-acceptance, without the pressure found in mixed-gender groups. Gender-specific environments allow young women to feel comfortable and build peer support, which is essential in the treatment and recovery process. Positive peer interaction can help them cultivate healthy boundaries, safely discuss sensitive issues, and develop strong relationships with other females. Our seasoned therapeutic staff has decades of clinical experience in treating young women, providing positive role modeling, and supporting residents as they transition from self-destruction to self-esteem.

What to Expect

Life in treatment can be challenging, but also incredibly fulfilling and joyful.

On any given day of treatment at Newport Institute, our young adult residents experience opportunities to learn, thrive, and engage with supportive staff and peers.
