For Families

We all hurt when a loved one is in pain

We Get It

Watching someone you love struggle with addiction, trauma, or mental health issues is difficult. Seeing someone you care about head to treatment can be an emotional experience. And the time leading up to the decision to seek help often comes with anxiety of its own. At The Meadows, we understand this and work with families, including them in the treatment process, so that there can be healing for everyone involved.

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

Individualized Treatment to Break the Cycle

The Meadows understands the seriousness of addiction. Our treatment options range from detoxification to an intensive, inpatient psychotherapeutic program that addresses the symptoms and underlying causes of addiction. Our caring team of experts is trained to help people overcome their addiction in a safe and nurturing environment.

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

Healing for the Whole Family

The Meadows’ world-renowned experts have been teaching for decades about the impact that an addicted person’s behaviors have on the family. Our Family Week program is an important time dedicated to healing those relationships. Designed to give our patients and their loved ones a safe space to engage in open and honest communication while exploring family relational issues, Family Week at The Meadows is a time of learning, growth, change, and forgiveness for everyone, and ensures that the transition back to daily life is successful.

How Family Week Works

During Family Week, family members and significant others are invited on campus to actively participate in their loved one’s recovery process. In the weeks before Family Week, patients discover that much of their current dysfunctional behavior stems from past traumas. We believe family should play a significant role in the process of resolving that trauma. Family Week provides an opportunity for patients and their families to understand their family of origin and current family systems, and begin the healing process together.

The group setting – including family, patients, and their family counselor – allows for an open and honest reflection of the behavior patterns that contributed to a patient’s unhealthy lifestyle. Patients and their families learn how to better communicate, support each other emotionally, and establish appropriate boundaries. This collaboration fosters the healing process and brings the family closer together. It has also been proven as a significant factor in long-term healing and recovery.
