Who We Are – About Newport Healthcare

Newport Healthcare is the national leader in treating higher-acuity mood and co-occurring disorders in teens and young adults, such as depression, anxiety, mood disorders, trauma, and substance use disorder. As our country and the world face the most devastating crisis of our time—the youth mental health crisis—Newport Healthcare is at the forefront in the essential work of helping young people to heal and to thrive.

Accreditation, Licensing, & Affiliations

Our innovative approach to mental healthcare earns accolades from press around the world, but it is our dedication to our client success that has allowed our Newport Academy and Newport Institute programs achieve accreditation from The Joint Commission, exceed licensing standards of care, and nurture affiliations with the following:

Our History

In 2008, Newport Academy, a program of Newport Healthcare, was founded by Jamison Monroe Jr. and his father, who 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 integrated treatment programs that achieve 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.
