Meg, Alumni of Newport Academy
Meg, an alumni of Newport Academy, struggled with low self-esteem, severe trauma, and self-harm prior to attending residential treatment at Newport Academy. As a result of the Newport Academy trauma treatment program, Meg was able to find peace and move past her difficult experiences with a newfound love for herself.
At Newport Academy, we bring teens from self-destruction to self-esteem by treating the underlying causes of high-risk behavior. We treat individuals, ages 12 to 20, who are struggling with teenage depression, teen anxiety, eating disorders, trauma, and teenage substance abuse. Newport Academy is a different kind of teen rehab center. Through our clinical expertise and holistic care, we empower teens and restore families.
When Meg experienced trauma, she sought dangerous coping mechanisms to numb the pain she was feeling. As a result of severe trauma, teens like Meg may turn to alcohol or drugs to alter their state of mind. Without proper teen treatment, this may lead to addiction. Studies have found that childhood trauma creates the most stress for an individual. This makes it one of the primary causes of addiction. For young people, the pain associated with childhood trauma is still fresh. Teens often take drugs and alcohol to numb the pain. As a result, this can lead to heavy drinking and drug abuse at a time when the adolescent’s life is still in an unstable state. If your teen has signs of trauma, contact Newport Academy today. Newport Academy is the country’s leading teen trauma treatment center. We can help your child and family find a path to healing.
