The Meadows Workshops

The Meadows’ one-of-a-kind workshops offer healing and empowerment to individuals in various stages of their recovery.

Our sister facility, Rio Retreat Center at The Meadows, offers a variety of unique workshops available to all interested individuals. Many workshops specifically address the needs of those who have just begun a recovery process while others help those who are stable in recovery and ready for the next stage or want to deepen their experience. Workshops can also be a source of renewal for anyone who has undergone treatment. Participants work on sensitive issues in a concentrated format, allowing them to enhance their personal journey by gaining insight into unhealthy, embroiled patterns, and practicing new relational skills within a safe environment.
