Family Systems Perspective

Trauma and addiction affect the entire family. Therefore, we designed our FAMILY WEEK to give our patients and their loved ones a safe space to engage in open and honest communication while exploring family relational issues. This is a time of learning, growth, change, and forgiveness for everyone, and ensures that the transition back to daily life is successful.

A cornerstone of The Meadows Model and philosophy is that we believe each patient comes with an individual story and experience. In our treatment, we do everything to honor each patient’s uniqueness through a custom-tailored combination of therapies designed to unlock the greatest potential for healing and growth. Learn more about our therapies.

We Get It

Many of our staff members are in some form of recovery themselves, having experienced portions of the very issues with which our clients are struggling. Having this deeper understanding allows our staff to identify with clients on a level that often breaks through their skepticism and doubt, a critical step on the road to recovery.

We Understand Your Concerns

Having a loved one go to treatment can be an overwhelming experience, and the time leading up to the decision often comes with significant pain and anxiety. The Meadows understands this and works with families to make rehab a positive experience for all.

If your loved one is struggling with an addiction or mental health issue, The Meadows can help.


For Military Families

The Meadows is experienced in treating the psychological disorders and substance abuse issues that often plague individuals who serve or have served in the military. If your loved one has experienced wartime trauma or anxiety, The Meadows can help.

For Health Professionals

At The Meadows, we ensure your patient receives the highest quality of care whether as an inpatient or attendee of one of our workshops. We are licensed by the Arizona Department of Health Services as a Behavioral Health Inpatient Facility and accredited by The Joint Commission. Our masters’ level clinicians, board-certified psychiatrists, 24-hour nursing staff, and physicians are fully committed to the patient treatment and recovery process.

For many years, the term “recovery” was thought to relate to addiction alone. At The Meadows, we believe trauma affects everyone in different ways and can have its own recovery. We focus on recovery from trauma, whether related to addiction, family-of-origin issues, or abuse in any form.

Our holistic treatment approach sets The Meadows apart from other treatment facilities. Guided with the help of our Senior Fellows − world-renowned experts who are thought leaders in their disciplines − we help patients recover from childhood relational trauma by giving them the tools needed to address symptoms of root trauma in their adult lives.

Located on a 14-acre campus, 50 miles northwest of Phoenix, The Meadows offers a serene and private setting for patients to undergo a variety of therapies including:

We also offer extended care programs, designed to continue the healing process and transition patients to life outside The Meadows.

Your Patient and The Meadows

Every patient at The Meadows is assigned a primary therapist, family therapist, workshop facilitator, attending psychiatrist, and a medical physician. In addition, each patient has a treatment team that consists of 24-hour nursing staff, evening and weekend counselors, and an individual therapist for Somatic Experiencing, EMDR, and EFT. All group sessions are facilitated by both a primary therapist and a family therapist. Group sizes average approximately eight patients per group.
