Addicted to Addicts: Survival 101 -Teens, Treatment, and Newport Academy

Many key elements characterize the design and implementation of an effective adolescent substance abuse treatment program. The treatment program at Newport Academy is designed to address those elements defined by the American Medical Association, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the National Institute on Drug Abuse as crucial and key in establishing effective, individualized, and comprehensive care for the treatment of adolescent substance abuse. No other adolescent treatment center encompasses all 7 of these elements. Jamison Monroe, CEO of Newport Academy, explains these elements and much more in our interview this week on the show.
