Young adults with anxiety and depression aren’t getting the help they need. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration, 4.6 million young adults in the United States, ages 18 to 25, experience one major depressive episode annually, but less than half receive treatment. This year, the CDC reports that 75 percent of this age group is experiencing mental health symptoms as a result of the pandemic, making the treatment shortfall even more extreme. In an effort to bridge this treatment gap, Newport Institute, a series of mental health treatment programs for young adults ages 18-27, has opened residential treatment centers in the Greater Seattle Area, San Francisco Bay Area, and Greater Los Angeles Area. Locations are coming soon near New York City and Washington DC.
"Sadly, young adults lack treatment options specific to their needs, which results in many turning to self-coping in the form of self-destructive behaviors,” said Joe Procopio, CEO. “Newport Institute provides clinically sophisticated therapeutic services with a tailored treatment program for each client to help them achieve sustainable mental wellness and independence."
With the mission to empower minds and restore families, Newport Institute offers immersive, primary mental health services in gender-specific healing centers for young adults. Newport’s clinical model addresses the trauma and attachment wounds that lead to anxiety, depression and high risk of suicide, as well as co-occurring disorders such as substance use and eating disorders. A team of expert clinicians nurtures the physical, psychological, social, educational, and spiritual needs of individuals, from a foundation of compassionate care, clinical expertise, and unconditional love.
At Newport Institute, each client receives a tailored treatment plan that includes a variety of modalities. Clients participate in individual, group, and family therapy, while also spending time in learning labs with academic and career assessments and counseling, college courses and resume-building instruction. Life skills training covers financial independence, relapse prevention, and goal setting, while experiential therapeutic modalities include adventure therapy, art therapy, music therapy, yoga therapy, meditation, and more.
Newport Institute offers a full continuum of care, including residential treatment centers, Partial Hospitalization Programs, and Intensive Outpatient Programs. All programs are actively accepting new clients and work with all major insurances. Find out more at NewportInstitute.com.
