Types of Therapy
A wide range of modalities for unique needs
Successful treatment combines a diverse range of powerful methodologies that work together to foster support, discovery, and healing. Our comprehensive treatment program encompasses our own Meadows Model to address emotional trauma and addiction with a multi-disciplinary emphasis. Group and one-on-one therapy, techniques like Somatic Experiencing®, EMDR, and neurofeedback as well as holistic options like equine therapy, expressive arts, yoga, and tai chi all combine to create a program like no other.
Throughout the course of a day, a patient will attend a variety of lectures, workshops, therapies, and treatments in a combination of individual and group settings. Patients have a structured weekly schedule with time blocked out for all the different activities throughout each day, though the specifics vary from patient to patient.
The Meadows daily structure is the foundational element to creating an environment that focuses on healing and recovery. Standards such as designated time for disabling phones and computers during the day allow patients to disengage from distraction and focus on discovering themselves and finding healing.Sample Schedule
