TITLE: “Getting and KEEPING Kids Sober, Healthy and Happy”
SPECIAL GUESTS: Jamison Monroe, Founder & CEO – Newport Academy Allen and Dr. Melody are joined by Jamison Monroe to discuss what parents can do when kids start down the “wrong” path? Where to look for help? There are many adolescent programs out there, but let’s talk about what works and what does not, as well as what happens after treatment? At the end of the day, parents need good, trustworthy information about teen addiction. With that in mind, Monroe believes strongly in educating families so that they can more effectively help their children with addiction issues – including what you can do to prevent problems and how you can help treat them.
ABOUT JAMISON MONROE With years of personal recovery experience, compassionate and effective treatment of adolescent health is mission critical to Jamison Monroe. Raised in what might have appeared like an idyllic childhood environment, Monroe began his descent into alcohol and drug abuse as a teen, while hiding behind that all too familiar ‘happy family” facade. Despite a supportive family, Monroe remained in this life-threatening cycle until he was admitted to a treatment center that focused on personalized, comprehensive and holistic treatment that allowed him to safely address his individual underlying issues, while balancing an effective amount of family involvement. Newport Academy is the culmination of Jamison’s journey and desire to create an unrivaled setting to help teens and their families recover from the destructive effects of behavioral health issues.
