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. With an approach based on addressing the “why,” not just the “what,” Newport Healthcare’s programs focus on the underlying causes of destructive behaviors, not just the symptoms. Today, Newport Healthcare empowers tens of thousands of teens, young adults, and their families through progressive 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.


Newport Healthcare’s Newport Academy is recognized by the Wall Street Journal for its culinary therapy—using cooking therapy as an aspect of treatment for anxiety and depression, and furthering awareness of how cooking enhances mental health.


Newport Healthcare program Newport Academy receives the Gold Seal of Approval® accreditation from the Joint Commission for Behavioral Health Care. The Joint Commission is the nation’s oldest and largest healthcare accreditation body, setting the highest standards for healthcare quality. Considered the most esteemed international accreditation in US healthcare, the Joint Commission serves to improve the quality of patient care. Newport Academy met more than 1,300 standards and obtained high approval ratings from the Joint Commission.


In line with our mission of addressing what is now a full-fledged adolescent mental health crisis, we continue to target regions where access to care is limited. We establish our adolescent treatment programs in the San Francisco Bay Area, allowing us to meet the needs of a region that experiences high rates of mental health concerns.


Newport Healthcare expands its programs and opens Newport Institute for young adults, ages 18-35, and to the Pacific Northwest where we opened a Newport Academy male residential location outside of Seattle.
