Newport Academy, a treatment facility for adolescents and young adults suffering from mental health, eating disorders and substance abuse issues, has announced the construction of its first Northeast location in Bethlehem, Connecticut, a suburb of New York City, scheduled to open this November.
Founded in Newport Beach, Calif. in 2008, Newport Academy offers treatment for teens and adolescents by utilizing a combination of behavioral assessments and developmental programs that are tailored to the specific mental health and substance abuse needs of each patient. The new Newport Academy in Bethlehem is on a 65-acre nature preserve 90 miles from New York City and 140 from Boston. The facility will treat 10 males and 8 females, ages 15 to 20 years old, in gender-specific residential centers.
"By going beyond the traditional 12-step model and truly healing the underlying causal issues, Newport Academy has an unmatchable success rate in managing and treating mental illness," said Jamison Monroe, Jr., CEO of Newport Academy. "With an alarming percentage of our clients coming from the Northeast, we are excited to bring our program to an area of the country that desperately needs access to better mental health facilities."
