By year end, the first Meadows Outpatient Center will open in the DC Ranch area of scenic North Scottsdale, Arizona. The 6200 square foot center is nestled in the foothills of the McDowell Mountains, just off the 101 and Pima Road, offering patients a convenient, attractive, safe, and private location. The Meadows Outpatient Center¬ will primarily provide Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) services for individuals who have completed any of The Meadows inpatient programs in Wickenburg, Arizona and require a stepped down level of care. The new center offers the benefit of The Meadows Model and the same high quality of care that exists on the main campuses.
The Meadows Outpatient Center treatment program will entail four days per week, three hours per day (mornings or evenings), for eight weeks. Transitional living for patients is available through preferred affiliations with top-quality properties, and is offered to local patients as well as those from out of state. These transitional living affiliates provide transportation, security, strong programming, fellowship, and numerous recreational activities designed to make the entire process seamless, comfortable, and fun.
In addition to IOP services, The Meadows Outpatient Center will offer individual sessions (CBT, SE, SP, EMDR); Neurofeedback in the on-site Brain Spa; a dedicated meditation room with recliners, soft lighting, and music; and Trauma-Informed Yoga, in addition to numerous community events, gatherings, and outings. An on-site staff psychiatrist will be available for weekly medication management and program oversight.
Also located at the facility is a large conference center (seating around 100) with a stage to facilitate lectures to patients, family members, therapists, and community members on the latest treatment information. We anticipate that this conference center will be a hub for all that are interested in working together to deliver the finest and most effective treatment for addictions disorders, trauma, and eating disorders.
