I can\'t speak specifically to what the program is like today as we were there several months ago. When we were there, the staff turn over was a little overwhelming. During our last week the Program Director \"left to pursue other career opportunities.\" I suspect that she was fired. If she wasn\'t, she should have been. There was so much chaos. Our family had three different family therapists during a four week stay!

I let my wife talk me into sending our daughter here and I have regretted it ever since. I just didn\'t listen to my instincts. I questioned why they didn\'t have their staff on their web site- I soon learned that it was probably because of the rapid turn over in employees. It was like a revolving door. If it wasn\'t that it might have been because they simply were not impressive in terms of presentation or performance. I wouldn\'t want them representing me. I questioned why they wouldn\'t let us speak to our daughter. They said it was because she was acting out. We later heard from her and other teens there that they were treated very differently when parents were present- than when they were alone with staff. She and the other girls described them as \"mean\". While it\'s easy enough to dismiss what kinds in treatment have to say- they were able to be specific in terms of things staff members said and did- and I have to agree that it was mean spirited,. It was like they were being encouraged to bully each other- the staff just piled on, making them feel worse about themselves than they did already. We finished the 45 day program and I strongly regret not just pulling her out. The next place we sent her had to undo a lot of the damage the staff at Newport Academy did- before they could get to the original issues she went to treatment for. Our experience in the other program helped educate us on just how bad this program really is. My advice - go anywhere else.

We had the misfortune of our son being in this program during the same time the \"affluenza\" kid was there to avoid jail time.... Our kid relapsed after being home for one week. He has never hurt anyone, so I don\'t want to compare the two other than to say I think the treatment at Newport Academy is ineffective.
