About Us

The Insight Counseling Mission:

To provide highly effective assessment and counseling services to clients in a warm and compassionate environment. We seek to make the entire process of seeking help open and helpful. With openness and understanding, we provide the correct environment, education and encouragement for lasting positive changes to begin.

We offer expert substance abuse and mental health assessments. We can also provide forensic evaluations for adolescents and adults facing legal charges relating to substance abuse.

FREE - WEEKLY PARENTS SUPPORT GROUP

In response to an overwhelming interest and community need, Insight Counseling and Newport Academy have created a free and confidential Parents Support Group. This group will meet weekly and is appropriate for the parents and caregivers of teens and young adults who are having behavioral problems, and/or substance abuse problems and are resistant to getting help, or for parents and caregivers who need guidance in setting and maintaining limits with "challenging" adolescents.
