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

Our workshops address the needs of those who have just begun a recovery process as well as those who have been on a recovery path and may have hit a plateau 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 jump-start and enhance their personal recovery journey by gaining insight into unhealthy patterns and practicing new relational skills within a safe environment.

Pricing & Registration

Workshops are not covered by insurance carriers. Please call for pricing. Since workshops fill quickly, we encourage making reservations three to four weeks in advance. Register by contacting our Intake Department at 800-244-4949.
