Trusted Treatment, Proven Results
The Meadows is the nation’s premier treatment program for trauma, drug and alcohol addiction, sex addiction, panic and anxiety disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, codependency, depression, bipolar disorder, and eating disorders. Located one hour northwest of Phoenix, our scenic Wickenburg, Arizona campus is nestled in the serene Sonoran Desert, making it an ideal place to focus on recovery.
For more than four decades The Meadows has helped patients heal, addressing not just their symptoms or behaviors, but providing them with the tools needed to get to the root cause of their disorders and achieve lasting recovery. Clinicians and professionals trust us more than any other treatment program because of our impeccable reputation for quality, integrity, and proven results.
The Meadows and Claudia Black Young Adult Center Earn ASAM Certification
Awarded based on comprehensive criteria for outcome-oriented, results-based addiction treatment, we’re so proud to be one of the first to receive this distinction! ASAM certification numbers are not scores or ratings, instead 3.5 and 3.7 correlate to levels of care and intensity of services we provide.
Why The Meadows?
At The Meadows, we explore the underlying issues and understand the specific needs of patients struggling with addiction, unresolved trauma, and mental health issues. We know that even though some people may suffer from the same concerns, they each have their own unique story. That’s why we don’t take a one-size-fits-all approach to treatment, instead creating an individualized treatment plan based on each patient’s physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual needs to help them achieve lasting recovery.Learn More
TRUSTED BY PROFESSIONALS
Many of the individuals who seek treatment at The Meadows are already in the care of one or more trusted medical professionals, and we understand our role as stewards of your patient. Our treatment program was designed by experts in their respective fields and represents decades of treatment experience. We can work with you to ensure your patient’s specific needs are met, keep you informed of progress, and, once inpatient treatment is completed, return your patient to your continued care.Learn More
The Meadows understands the challenges of a hurting loved one and goes the extra mile to include families in the treatment process. Our Family Week provides information and understanding through psychoeducation and activities specifically designed to address the effects of the patient’s issues on their loved ones. Family members get support to explore family dynamics, recognize dysfunctional patterns, and focus on developing a supportive environment for patients once they return home.Learn More
The Meadows Difference
What sets us apart? Our holistic approach to healing focuses on the whole person, including the underlying issues or trauma that impact an individual’s well-being. A range of methods from Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Somatic Experiencing (SE) to neurofeedback, equine therapy, and mindfulness meditation make for a well-rounded, research-supported program like no other. Then there are our Senior Fellows, some of the nation’s top addiction and recovery experts. They provide ongoing direction, consultation, and training for our staff to ensure that The Meadows Model is the most clinically comprehensive and nurturing program available today.
Our Commitment to Patient Care
The Meadows’ executive team, led by CEO Sean Walsh, understands a program’s effectiveness lies in its staff’s interactions with each and every client. “Many of our staff have experienced some of the issues that our patients are going through, and they understand and can identify with their concerns,” Walsh explains. “This adds to the atmosphere of acceptance and respect patients feel when they arrive and during their entire stay with us.”
