Insurance covers up to 100 percent of the treatment and therapeutic modalities that Newport Academy offers. We accept all major insurance providers and work collaboratively with payers to optimize coverage for families. Many adolescents who receive treatment from Newport Academy using insurance coverage do so through a Single Case Agreement, a special contract through which out-of-network providers can work with a family’s insurance company on an In-Network basis. Newport Academy maintains a full-time, in-house team dedicated to supporting families through the mental health insurance coverage and financing process. In order to secure sufficient insurance coverage, we will most likely need to conduct a series of clinical reviews and any requested doctor-to-doctor calls with the insurance company. While other facilities may charge for this service, we feel it is our responsibility to assist families with what can be a complex process. Our goal is to ensure that families receive the maximum coverage, so they can access the highest-quality treatment.

Half of all lifetime cases of mental disorders will first present by age 14 and 75% will present by age 24. This is why it is a critical time to find expert help and address issues.

Teens & Adolescent Residential Treatment Centers
Teen Treatment Centers in San Diego provide evidence-based treatment programs that help your teen heal from substance abuse, addiction, depression, and more. At a teen residential treatment center San Diego, teenagers experience the most successful elements of mental health, addiction, and drug abuse programs. Teenagers learn to take charge of their lives and become responsible, contributing adults whether they are dealing with the true disease of addiction, struggling with mild to moderate mental health issues or just need a helping hand. Adolescents and teens, who are suffering from a drug addiction or alcohol addiction, require special care and professional treatment that addresses their particular physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual development levels. Teens dealing with a drug or alcohol addiction benefit from leaving their current environment and entering a safe, controlled treatment environment with others of their same age and gender. At an adolescent treatment center San Diego teens receive an accurate drug and alcohol assessment that addresses co-occurring psychiatric disorders and increasingly complicated family needs. Safe medical detoxification services are available for patients who may need medical supervision during withdrawal. Adolescent and teen addiction treatment programs address negative patterns and behaviors such as alcohol and drug use, abuse and dependency; co-occurring psychiatric issues; family conflict; low self-esteem or self-loathing; self-injurious behaviors; and anger in group, individual, and family counseling sessions. The best Teen Treatment Centers in San Diego can provide the help your struggling teen needs.

Rehab in San Diego

Clients who are looking for Drug Rehab in San Diego or Alcohol Rehab in San Diego can find help at a treatment center. The first step towards recovery usually requires clients to detox in San Diego under medical supervision, and follow-up with a period of intensive therapy at the center.

INPATIENT or OUTPATIENT?
