Newport Academy, a series of leading adolescent treatment centers specializing in mental health, trauma, eating disorders and substance abuse, announces the acquisition of NorthStar Academy, based in the Washington DC metropolitan area.
The new location in Rockville, Maryland will advance the organization’s mission to transform the teen mental health space, according to Jamison Monroe Jr., founder and CEO of Newport Academy.
NorthStar Academy now formally becomes a part of Newport Academy’s growing network across the country — including locations in California, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania. The new acquisition allows Newport Academy to offer local, daily mental-health services in the Greater DC area, Maryland and Virginia.
Gale Saler, founder of NorthStar Academy, joins the Newport Academy team as an Executive Director. “Having worked with Gale and NorthStar over the past three years, we are thrilled that Gale has chosen to join the Newport Academy family,” Monroe said. “We’ll be building upon NorthStar’s excellent clinical program as we continue providing the highest quality teen mental health treatment for which Newport Academy is well known.”
The Rockville location encompasses a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) and a school component, which will become the Newport Academy Day School. This move enables Newport Academy to further expand its Joint Commission–accredited, evidence-based, and highly impactful mental-health services for teens and their families.
