"I have a psychotherapy practice in Boston and on occasion refer my clients to The Meadows in Arizona. Why send them clear across the country when there are plenty of rehab facilities in the Boston area? Two words: success rate."
"One thing that impressed me - many of my counselors at The Meadows were recovering, just like me. I knew they knew exactly where I was coming from. Made all the difference in the world."
"As a therapist, I’ve been referring clients to The Meadows for over 10 years because, in my opinion, they have the most treatment options available for my clients, like Somatic Experiencing and EMDR."
"I went there because it’s in horse country, and I love horses. I took equine therapy. You interact with the horse and you feel better. How great is that?"
"I considered going to celeb rehab...but my therapist recommended The Meadows. Good call."
"I'm a psychotherapist who has taken many CEU workshops at The Meadows. Their approach to addiction is the best in mental health. That’s why I refer to them."
"Never thought I'd have to go to rehab. Never thought I'd write a review about it. But I did. If you have to go to rehab - go to The Meadows."
"Best the about The Meadows was Family Week. We all learned how not to push each other’s buttons. Felt like a weight was lifted off me. We know how to communicate now."
"I've taken several workshops with Pia Mellody, Meadows Senior Fellow and writer of Facing Codependence, the best book on addiction and recovery I've ever read. Her approach to treatment is revolutionary and very successful - that's why I refer my patients with addictions to The Meadows."
"Groups were good. Nice people. Good food. Small rooms - but comfortable. I recommend it."
"Arrived drunk. Left sober. That's the best recommendation I can give."
"After five weeks at The Meadows, I'm still an addict - but now I'm a recovering one. It was a long road, but they helped me take the first step."
"The Meadows is so private, they don't even have a sign outside. I could have checked into fancier rehab places, but my psych told me it was the best. It was."
"Can't say I had FUN there, but after five pretty intense weeks, I didn't want to leave. Sounds weird, but it's true."
"I'm drug-free for the first time in 15 years. That says it all."
"Five weeks is a long time, but so was 22 years of alcohol & drug abuse. The Meadows did what years of private therapy couldn’t - it straightened me out."
"I've referred three of my therapy clients to The Meadows, two for drug addiction and one for an eating disorder. Pleased to say all have had positive outcomes and are in recovery. The Meadows is three for three."
"Rehab for me was a last resort. I've been in therapy for years but nothing worked. I needed an inpatient program. The Meadows fit my needs."
"I'm an MFT in LA who recently sent one of my clients, a sexual addict, to The Meadows. She's in recovery now, thanks to one of the most innovative sexual addiction programs in the country."
"The Meadows was expensive, but not as expensive as my coke habit."
"The Meadows is way out in the middle of nowhere, Arizona. And that was cool with me - the farther I got away from my old life, the better. Some people need structure in their lives - like me. Now I can deal."
"I'm an LMFT who refers to The Meadows when the need arises. The best word I can use for their addiction program is 'flexible.' It's not one size fits all - they create a program to match the patient's needs. In my experience, very few other facilities do that.
It takes hours to get there, but once I got there I felt safe for the first time in a long time. I actually cried when it came time to leave."
"I read lots of reviews and blog posts before I decided on The Meadows. They've been around for a long time and all that experience paid off - at least for me."
"The people at The Meadows were fantastic. They knew when to be tough and when to go easy. Thanks to them I haven't used since my release - and don't intend to."
"I've got a lot of respect for the therapy staff at The Meadows. They know their stuff, at least they did with me."
"I just got back from spending five weeks at The Meadows. It was the calmest, least-anxiety-producing, no stress-inducing five weeks of my life. The only time I got stressed out is when it came time to leave."
"Let's be real: nobody looks forward to going to rehab. But the staff at The Meadows made it as pain-free as possible for me. They treated me with respect, like an adult. I recommend it for anyone who needs to go to rehab."
"If you think you can beat a drug addiction on the outside, think again. I couldn't. I needed inpatient. I needed tough love, structure. I needed The Meadows."
"They've been doing it for a long time. They know how to do it. They did it for me. I would recommend The Meadows for anyone who needs rehab."
"Our 18-year-old daughter had a drug problem. She spent five weeks at The Meadows and when she came back, it was like having our OLD daughter back. Cost a bunch but worth it - what price can you put on getting your daughter back?"
