About Newport Academy

Newport Academy is a comprehensive, integrated treatment program for teens suffering from mental health, behavioral health and substance abuse issues. We offer two gender-specific residential facilities, a private high school and an outpatient center for continued care. If you or your child needs help, please call us as soon as possible. We are always on call and willing to help if given the opportunity. Please call Newport Academy at 866.382.6651.

Effective substance abuse and psychiatric treatment with young adults must be evidence based and address all behaviors of concern and underlying psychosocial and biological risk. As the field of substance abuse and psychiatric care approaches the full implementation of the ACA on January 1, 2014, the need to demonstrate evidence based practices will be key to receiving third party reimbursement for effective care. This conference will provide attendees with real skills to evaluate and treat young people with a variety of co-occurring illnesses, address the current climate of prescription drugs as gateway drugs, present the role of assessing the true risks of self harm and more.

Who should attend?

“Innovations in Addiction Treatment with Young People” has been created to meet the professional training interests of counselors, social workers, psychologists, physicians and allied health and prevention professionals.  7 CEUs and CMEs have been applied for.

 

Newport Academy

is proud to announce the opening of their Connecticut residential treatment centers for 15-20 year olds. www.newportacademy.com
