Our Approach

Center for Families (CFF), a valued member of the Newport Healthcare family of programs, provides guidance, awareness, and education for families in local communities around mental health and substance use struggles. We lead teens ages 13-17 and families to sustainable healing through a continuum of care that includes our Therapeutic Day Program/PHP, Intensive Outpatient Program, and outpatient services. In CFF’s treatment programs, teens begin to build strong relationships, learn and practice healthy coping skills, grow their personal self-worth, and reestablish trust and communication with themselves and their loved ones. Our approach blends behavioral and medical treatment (integrated care) and provides both clinical and experiential modalities (integrative care). Each of our treatment programs encompasses evidence-based and solutions-focused components. Through support groups, clinical therapy, and psychoeducation, we involve the entire family in the healing journey - creating connection, cultivating compassion, igniting hope, and generating lasting change.

Our Levels of Care

In CFF’s Therapeutic Day Program/Partial Hospitalization Program, teens’ weekly schedules include individual, group, and family therapy, as well as classroom hours and private tutoring. Every aspect of the Therapeutic Day Treatment Program is designed to support teens in gaining skills and self-knowledge as they learn new, healthy ways of navigating their world. The program encompasses CFF’s Therapeutic Day School, which provides an accredited curriculum designed to fit the needs of each adolescent, with a high staff-to-student ratio for individualized attention and tutoring. CFF’s Intensive Outpatient Treatment Program (IOP) provides comprehensive, integrated outpatient care to support teens to thrive while they maintain their current school schedule. This level of care is ideal for teens who will benefit from consistent, ongoing care on an outpatient basis. For teens enrolled in CFF’s outpatient services, we determine the appropriate adolescent outpatient track and treatment hours for each client according to the specific needs of the individual and family.

Our Therapies

Our programming includes a wide range of comprehensive and tailored therapeutic offerings designed to address the underlying trauma and attachment wounds catalyzing teen mental health and co-occurring disorders. We recognize that the family is essential to healing, and our programming provides numerous opportunities for strengthening the family unit, including support groups and ongoing family therapy sessions. Our clinical staff is trained in multiple modalities, including Attachment-Based Family Therapy, a groundbreaking approach to healing the parent-child relationship. In individual and group therapy, teens gain self-knowledge and healthy coping skills through evidence-based modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. Experiential modalities, including Adventure Therapy, yoga, and music and art therapy, promote teens’ self-esteem and self-expression while allowing them to process traumatic experiences. In our life skills training, teens strengthen their executive functioning and build the skills they need to move into the next stage of adolescence with confidence and enthusiasm.
