More people are voluntarily leaving their jobs than ever before. Close to 3 percent of the America workforce quit in August 2021, according to the US Department of Labor. This collective reassessment is fueled in part by the desire for a more balanced life and better mental health in the workplace.
At Newport Healthcare, our mission to foster well-being and resilience applies to our employees as well as our clients. If you’re looking for a meaningful career that energizes you instead of leaving you drained, and that allows you to make a real contribution to the world, consider these top 10 reasons to work at Newport.

Grow your skills.
Providing effective, compassionate, outcomes-based care for our clients goes hand in hand with empowering our employees and ensuring that they grow in their expertise and professionalism. We offer continuing education, student loan repayment, and tuition reimbursement for all employees, and specialized training for clinicians in DBT, EMDR, Attachment-Based Family Therapy, and more.
Collaborate with a closely bonded team.
At each of our nationwide locations, the team maintains close communication, with daily huddles, all-staff meetings, and regular staff trainings, as well as holiday parties and other social get-togethers to help us stay connected. Moreover, because our integrated care teams are multidisciplinary, all roles work together—including direct care staff, nurses, psychiatrists, dieticians, clinical outreach specialists, therapists, teachers, chefs, and more. They’re not just passing each other in the hallways, they’re collaborating and innovating together to continually improve every aspect of our treatment.
Access opportunities to advance your career.
We place great value on promoting from within our team whenever possible, and many of our entry-level staff are promoted within months or years of joining us. For example, many of our direct care staff go on to become counselors or leaders within our operations teams. We also offer flexibility between locations, so a staff member might be promoted to an open position at another facility, or can request a transfer to another campus.
Spend your time somewhere beautiful.
Our residential and outpatient locations around the country are housed in spacious, comfortable homes in gorgeous natural settings, with amenities including on-site gardens, art and music studios, gyms, peaceful spaces for yoga and meditation, and academic classrooms and Learning Labs outfitted with the latest technology. We want our facilities to be places where people are happy to come to work, where it feels healing, comfortable, and beautiful for staff as well as clients.
Be part of a diverse and inclusive culture.
As stewards of mental healthcare, it is our responsibility and privilege to foster a safe culture of diversity and inclusion, guided by awareness, education, and our core values of love, empathy, and connection. Together, we will continue to build an inclusive culture that encourages, supports, and celebrates the diverse and authentic voices of our employees, clients, families, and communities.
Enhance your well-being.
There’s life at work and life outside of work. We want everyone to be healthy, have time to give back, and receive the support they need. Employees participate in self-care workshops, yoga classes, and team-building initiatives. Direct care staff often participate alongside clients in outdoor activities and Adventure Therapy sessions—hiking, taking surfing lessons, ziplining, mixed martial arts, and more. We know that working in the healthcare field is demanding, and that staff need to refill the well in order to be their best selves.
Experience the rewards of helping to change lives.
It’s incredibly rewarding to be able to support families in their time of need and create a sense of hope for them during their healing journey. Our staff are inspired every day by the transformations they witness in the teens, young adults, and families they serve. And the caring and compassion of our team make a lasting impact on our clients. “I will never forget the relationships I built at Newport,” says alum Grace S. “The staff pushed me to grow in ways I never thought I would.”
