Newport Institute – Young Adult Male Residential Treatment Center

Young men face 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 fostered by excessive social media or computer game addiction, can lead to depression, substance abuse, anxiety, or self-harm. Parents might not be aware that there are residential treatment centers for young adults with depression and other mental health issues available to them. Newport Institute’s expert staff treats the root causes of the symptoms young men experience—with the goal of achieving recovery that stands the test of time.

Finding a Purpose

Newport Institute’s residential programs for young adults are an evidence-based, tailored approach to providing adolescents ages 18 to 27 with the foundation, treatment, and support they need to overcome the problems they face and find a path forward.

Every young adult who comes to Newport Institute has different requirements and a different background. Some have unresolved trauma and/or substance abuse issues. Many have tried young adult treatment programs in the past and they failed to make a difference. Others have simply lost focus or become overwhelmed by the pressures of growing up. Our experienced staff 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.

“He learned how to grow up, how to be an adult. It’s better than listening to somebody’s dad like myself. He could relate to these people.”
