Inpatient, Outpatient, Workshop — Find Your Ideal Fit

Workshops vs. Inpatient or Outpatient Treatment

No two people are exactly the same, and what we need at any given time changes based on circumstances and where we’re at on our journey through life. Some come to one of The Meadows’ programs for intensive treatment for a specific issue or issues. They may be addressing substance abuse, deep-seated traumamental health issueseating disorderssex addiction, or intimacy issues. Others are already in recovery and looking for ways to continue the work they began in an inpatient or outpatient treatment program. Still others are simply seeking personal growth or hoping to jumpstart the healing process in a specific area.

Whether it’s a deep dive into a specific area of growth through a workshop, the dedicated, higher level of care to help overcome addiction or trauma in inpatient treatment, or the time-tested recovery skills that promote healthy relationships and help remove the stumbling blocks for a life characterized by joy, freedom, gratitude and acceptance in outpatient treatment, The Meadows has a place for you.

Is Inpatient Treatment Right for Me?

Whether you struggle with drug or alcohol addiction, an eating disorder, or another addiction that has taken over your life in a way that impacts your health, relationships, employment, and day-to-day life, inpatient treatment allows someone to completely focus on getting healthy without interference from the distractions of everyday life.

Inpatient Basics

  • Residential program completed on site
  • Distraction-free to focus solely on recovery
  • Programs address everything from drug and alcohol addiction or trauma to mental health issues, eating disorders, sex addiction, and love addiction/love avoidance
  • Offers detox, medical oversight, medication management, 24-hour nursing
  • Includes groups, peer support, education, and one-on-one sessions
  • Provides holistic options like yoga, expressive arts, and equine therapy
  • Focus is on developing recovery skills needed for post-treatment life
  • Some patients step down to outpatient treatment after completing an inpatient program to ease the transition back to everyday life

Inpatient treatment is not a quick fix, but when someone is struggling with addiction and other co-occurring mental health issues or trauma, they need professional help. The length of stay in inpatient treatment may vary based on a variety of factors, but most of our inpatient programs operate on a 45-day schedule.

This structured regimen includes detox (if applicable) and a wide range of time-tested therapies in both individual and group settings that make up a proven road map for recovery. In our caring, compassionate environment, hurting individuals are able to take the necessary steps to heal and move forward to create the life they were meant to live.

Is Outpatient Treatment Right for Me?

Once inpatient treatment has been completed, transitioning back to self-sufficiency in a world full of potential triggers isn’t easy. For others, their issues may not require an inpatient level of care, but treatment is needed. These are realities the team at The Meadows Outpatient Center not only understands but is trained to address.

Outpatient Basics

  • Treatment is completed while living at home or in a sober living facility
  • This less intensive schedule is for those who don’t require a higher level of care
  • Flexible day, evening, and virtual programs allow participants to get help while continuing to attend school, go to work, or meet family responsibilities
  • Programs address drug and alcohol addiction, trauma, mental health issues and more
  • Includes groups, peer support, education, and one-on-one sessions
  • Provides holistic options like yoga and expressive arts
  • Focus is on developing recovery skills needed for post-treatment life

Focused on fostering the development of someone who has struggled with addiction on a more flexible schedule, the goal of outpatient treatment is to diagnose and address the emotional and behavioral obstacles to long-term recovery and help someone develop the life skills necessary for a joyful, productive life free from dependency issues. And since recovery is a lifelong process, not a one-time snapshot, a focus on relapse prevention is an important component, along with inviting family members, when appropriate, into the process.

Before anyone begins outpatient treatment with us, they undergo a careful screening process to make sure they’re ready for this step. A higher level of care may be a prerequisite, depending on the results of your assessment.

Is a Workshop Right for Me?

Maybe you’ve hit a plateau in recovery or want to proactively maximize what you’ve learned along the way with concentrated professional guidance. Perhaps you’ve decided to make some positive changes in your life and are yearning for personal growth or wanting to take the next step toward addressing unresolved trauma or grief. Maybe you need help with boundary-setting or are looking to improve your relationships.

Rio Retreat Center can help you in each of these areas with specialized intensive five-day workshops.

Rio Retreat Center Workshops - The Meadows

Workshop Basics

  • Not designed to take the place of inpatient or outpatient treatment
  • Multi-day programs, usually on site, range from three to five days
  • Tackle single topics related to emotional trauma, relationships, personal growth, or professional development
  • Facilitated by highly skilled clinicians in a group setting
  • For those in recovery and those who’ve never needed treatment

“Our workshops have both depth and breadth, providing an unparalleled healing journey which will propel forward movement,” says Executive Director Jean Collins-Stuckert. “It is a naturally therapeutic setting with highly skilled clinicians who will walk alongside you as you deep dive into your process.”

With three categories to choose from — emotional trauma, relationships, and personal growth — it’s the perfect introduction to something emotionally therapeutic or a game-changing complement to someone’s recovery journey in a safe environment.

While workshops are an important investment in your emotional wellbeing, encouraging growth and increased self-awareness, they are not a substitute for inpatient treatment or intensive outpatient programs. If you are currently in active addiction or engaging in self-harm, having heavy suicidal ideation, or have recently exhibited suicidal behavior, workshops are not the appropriate first stop on the recovery journey. Our Meadows Behavioral Healthcare family of treatment programs can help. Then, following a higher level of care and continued stability, workshops can be beneficial resource moving forward.


“At Rio Retreat Center, you can accomplish in five days what might take you a year or two in that 50-minute therapy hour every week. It’s really transformational.” – Jean Collins-Stuckert
