About Newport News Behavioral Health Center

Newport News Behavioral Health Center is a secure 108-bed residential treatment facility serving males and females, ages 11–18. The staff utilizes a cognitive behavioral treatment model that encourages youth to safely explore thoughts and feelings related to the development of positive and desirable behavior within their homes and communities. Our programs are designed to provide each individual resident quality mental health treatment in a safe and secure therapeutic environment.
