For more than 40 years, The Meadows trauma treatment program has been helping those struggling with emotional trauma to heal and learn the skills necessary to cope with the devastating, and often hidden, effects of trauma. Our intensive, professional development workshops, are designed to help mental health and addiction professionals gain additional skills and insights for effectively treating their clients.

Lodging & Transportation
Rio Retreat Bunkhouse has lodging available on a first come, first served basis. Lodging at the Bunkhouse is designed to be conducive to the process of healing and recovery, and is purposely free of the distractions that often accompany hotel lodging. Rooms are simply appointed and are shared occupancy (2 guests per room). Guests will be placed with a roommate who is also attending a workshop at the Rio Retreat Center. For those staying at the Rio Retreat Bunkhouse, transportation will be available from the Phoenix airport, with two convenient pickup times. Details will be sent with your confirmation email upon completion of the sign up process.
Those who do not stay at the Rio Retreat Bunkhouse will be responsible for arranging and paying for their own lodging and transportation to the Wickenburg area. A list of lodging and transportation options will be sent with your workshop confirmation email.
Workshop groups run Monday through Friday from approximately 8:30a.m. to 4:00p.m. The schedule is somewhat flexible to accommodate the size of the group and group process. Evening programming provided after dinner between 6:00 and 7:00 p.m.
The Meadows Rio Retreat campus is strictly alcohol and drug free and has a dress code and smoking policy. Please consult our Workshop Coordinator for more information.
