Who We Are – About Newport Healthcare

At Newport Healthcare, we believe in sustainable healing. We bring teens and young adults from self-destruction to self-esteem by treating primary mental health issues, addressing the underlying causes of high-risk behavior. We treat individuals ages 12–27 who are struggling with depression, anxiety, and/or trauma-related issues, along with co-occurring eating disorders and substance abuse. Through our clinical expertise and holistic care, we strive to help alleviate the stigma surrounding teen and young adult mental health.

Teens and young adults who come to Newport Healthcare for treatment are not coming to us to get a cookie-cutter, one-size-fits-all model. They want to heal their trauma and mental health issues, and it is our job as clinicians to figure out how we can best serve them and their family—now and throughout their healing journey.

Our History

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. Today, Newport Healthcare empowers tens of thousands of teens, young adults, and their families through progressive treatment programs that achieves unparalleled outcomes.


Newport Healthcare opens Newport Academy in Orange County, California. It was here, that we opened the doors of a six-bed facility for adolescent girls, and that we developed an integrated approach designed to balance the psychological, biological, social, educational, and spiritual needs of teens and young adults.


Barbara Nosal, PhD, LMFT, LADC, joins Newport Healthcare as Chief Clinical Officer, developing and overseeing clinical and family programs. “Witnessing the transformation of teens and their families is the most fulfilling and meaningful experience I have had professionally,” she says.


As the need for teen mental health treatment drastically increases throughout the United States, we feel empowered to open our Connecticut campus, allowing us to bring our evidence-based treatment approach—which includes residential treatment, outpatient programs, and Day Schools—to more adolescents and families across the country.
