About My Clients
At Newport Academy, we address the root causes of self-destructive behaviors, not just the symptoms. We guide teens and their families to achieve long-term, sustainable healing by treating the underlying issues—such as trauma, depression, and anxiety—that catalyze substance abuse, eating disorders, and other co-occurring disorders. Incorporating clinical, experiential, and holistic modalities, our gender-specific treatment is family-focused and results-oriented.
My Background and Approach
In 2008, Newport Academy, an entity of Newport Healthcare, was founded by Jamison Monroe Jr. and his father, and was set out to build a comprehensive treatment alternative to rehabilitation. With an approach based on addressing the "why," not just the "what," Newport Healthcare's programs focus on the underlying causes of destructive behaviors, not just the symptoms. Today, Newport Healthcare empowers tens of thousands of teens, young adults, and their families through progressive treatment programs that achieve unparalleled outcomes.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
At Newport Academy, we’re a different kind of teen mental health treatment center. We give teens the life skills and self-understanding that allows them to find their place in the world. It’s time to stop putting a band-aid approach on teen treatment. In order to achieve sustainable healing, we must find and address the underlying issues and emotions that teens are attempting to mask through destructive behaviors. The time for truly comprehensive care has never been more critical to society than it is now. That’s where we step in.
