Jamison Monroe

Founder & Chairman

Jamison Monroe, Jr. is the founder of Newport Institute and Newport Academy. Jamison co-founded Newport Academy in 2008 and today serves as the Founder and Executive Chairman of Newport Healthcare. He brings years of both professional and personal recovery experience to his leadership of Newport Academy. Jamison cares deeply about teens and their families facing mental health challenges and is dedicated to providing the highest-quality treatment. As a result, he has become a prominent voice in the field of adolescent mental health, and an active participant in the movement to reduce the stigma around mental health and substance abuse challenges.

Before becoming the Newport Institute Founder, Jamison founded Newport Academy 12 years ago to treat clients ages 12–20 suffering from primary mental health issues: anxiety, trauma, depression, and co-occurring disorders. As a leader in adolescent mental health treatment, Newport Academy has received numerous requests from referral sources, professionals, and parents to create a program for the young adult population.

Hence, Jamison has evolved his vision, and we’ve translated our highly successful Newport Academy model into a program for 18- to 27-year-olds. Newport Institute takes into account the unique needs of young adults, while maintaining the core philosophies that underlie our integrated treatment model. In all of our unparalleled treatment programs, we provide clinical excellence, a wide range of evidence-based therapeutic modalities, and the practical skills necessary to build a fulfilling life.

Experience

Prior to founding Newport Academy, Jamison Monroe worked in multiple mental health and co-occurring disorder treatment facilities—starting his career as an overnight coordinator and working his way up to Executive Director. He is also the co-founder of Drugs over Dinner, advocating open conversation about drug use in families and communities. Jamison was a producer of the critically acclaimed documentary film Behind the Orange Curtain, about the prescription drug epidemic in the United States.
