Throughout the past few decades, the concept of “wellness” has been emphasized as a foundational principle in the treatment of trauma and addiction. Wellness refers to a balanced, moderate lifestyle that incorporates spiritual, intellectual, emotional, social and physical growth.
People who suffer from addiction and trauma often make unhealthy lifestyle choices that harm themselves and bring imbalance to their lives. The Meadows’ wellness program and holistic methodologies help patients create a healthy, satisfying lifestyle.
Through the groundbreaking efforts of Pia Mellody, The Meadows has distinguished itself as a wellness pioneer in the holistic treatment of different issues. The Meadows Model is built around five key issues:
As patients learn to discern healthy choices from unhealthy ones, their self-esteem grows, helping them create appropriate boundaries in relationships, live in moderation and realize their inherent value. Armed with an understanding of their self-worth, patients are empowered to see themselves and their shortcomings in a self-reflective light that helps them take responsibility for their decisions and ultimately achieve wellness.
At The Meadows, we are proud of our reputation as a credible source for breakthrough techniques and innovative therapeutic practices, many of which incorporate ancient healing methods such as Yoga, Tai Chi and acupuncture. The Meadows also offers modern programs that promote wellness, such as water aerobics, deep meditation, Pilates, music, expressive arts and equine therapy.
