Specialization

  • Family Program

    Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.
  • Medical Detoxification

    Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.

Family week is only for addicts in treatment. Family members are not able to truly share their stories truly. It’s all about the addict. No Followup. Very expensive. The dollars and mental to fly, rent car, hotel, your time, and mentally, do not go!

I went to the Meadows in 1977 and it saved my life. At the time to save costs it offered non of the amenities it offers now but was strongly influenced by the 12 steps of AA. You were required to complete the first three steps which are the most difficult and stressed the importance of meetings individual and group counseling . and we had no free time to swim , horseback ride but we learned all about the disease of addiction. Most loving and professional group of people I had ever met. All were in recovery and had Masters in Addiction Counseling. One of the things I was impressed with the most was that there was no repeaters as the thinking was that it made recovery.more difficult. Hard to make money on that model. Almost 40 years later the promises are alive for me and my Meadows alumni husband. Thank My Higher power as I do not understand it for this place and all the people I met there it works if you work it is the truth

I sent my 19 son the The Meadows. He went screaming and kicking with depression and mania episodes . I had tried everything else, years of therapy, Psychiatrists and different treatments. When I arrived for family week, my son met with with open arms and said “ thank you mom. This is the best thing you’ve ever done for me.” The Meadows had properly diagnosed him and medicated him. Yes, it was very expensive (especially for a single mother) but I thank them everyday. My son is now 25. He has taken full responsibility for his mental health since leaving The Meadows. He is a successful professional and speaks highly of his experience there. It literally saved his life and our family. Thank you to the amazing staff who helped him and helped me as well.

There was no treatment. We were sequestered in beautiful grounds; the only positive. With the exception of one group session, the rest were run by patients. Once a week you saw a psychiatrist, and it was a different one each week; no consistency. My addiction(s) were never discussed with me by a professional; the patients had to figure this out on their own. The accommodations were atrocious for the money we paid; dirty and old. A year later I am still sober and heaven only knows how I got there except on my own. Perhaps it was the $60,000 up front money that was a factor.
