  • Family Program

    Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.
  • Equine Therapy

    A form of animal therapy, equine therapy involves visiting, working with and sometimes riding horses as a way to create a metaphoric relationship that leads to life-altering insights.

  • Jamison Monroe, Jr.
    Jamison Monroe, Jr.Founder / CEO
    “Jamison is the missing link that connects old school recovery to the future of successful adolescent treatment. His presence in the recovery landscape is paramount to the evolution of the industry and imperative for mental health and addiction to become de-stigmatized by popular culture.” - Leonard Buschell, founder of Writers In Treatment
  • Jim Monroe
    Jim MonroeCo-Founder
    Jim knows all too well what parents are going through during this time period of finding and going through treatment. He has been down the road of admitting all of his children into a treatment center more than a few times. All three of his kids, two sons and a daughter, suffered with psychiatric, psychological, and substance abuse issues as teens and young adults. Symptoms ranged from trauma to attempted suicide, borderline personality disorder to bipolar disorder, anxiety to eating disorders, and from depression to alcohol and drug abuse. After many years of having his kids in and out of nationally recognized treatment centers that had been around for many years, Jim realized that these institutions closely resembled factory farms. There was little to no individualization in the treatment that his kids received compared to others going through the programs, despite the vast difference in their issues. While other areas of medicine provide “personalized health care”, a place did not exist that provided personalized health care for teens with mental health and/or substance abuse. Enter Newport Academy.

I can\'t speak specifically to what the program is like today as we were there several months ago. When we were there, the staff turn over was a little overwhelming. During our last week the Program Director \"left to pursue other career opportunities.\" I suspect that she was fired. If she wasn\'t, she should have been. There was so much chaos. Our family had three different family therapists during a four week stay!

I let my wife talk me into sending our daughter here and I have regretted it ever since. I just didn\'t listen to my instincts. I questioned why they didn\'t have their staff on their web site- I soon learned that it was probably because of the rapid turn over in employees. It was like a revolving door. If it wasn\'t that it might have been because they simply were not impressive in terms of presentation or performance. I wouldn\'t want them representing me. I questioned why they wouldn\'t let us speak to our daughter. They said it was because she was acting out. We later heard from her and other teens there that they were treated very differently when parents were present- than when they were alone with staff. She and the other girls described them as \"mean\". While it\'s easy enough to dismiss what kinds in treatment have to say- they were able to be specific in terms of things staff members said and did- and I have to agree that it was mean spirited,. It was like they were being encouraged to bully each other- the staff just piled on, making them feel worse about themselves than they did already. We finished the 45 day program and I strongly regret not just pulling her out. The next place we sent her had to undo a lot of the damage the staff at Newport Academy did- before they could get to the original issues she went to treatment for. Our experience in the other program helped educate us on just how bad this program really is. My advice - go anywhere else.
