The Meadows Workshops

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

“Whatever workshop you choose to begin with, know that in five very compact days you will leave with insights, a greater sense of direction about how you want to live, and most importantly the skills that offer you that opportunity.”

– Claudia Black, Senior Fellow

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.

Lodging & Transportation

Rio Retreat Bunkhouse has lodging available on a first-come, first-served basis. Lodging at the Bunkhouse is designed to be conducive to the process of healing and recovery and is purposely free of the distractions that often accompany hotel lodging. Rooms are simply appointed and are shared occupancy (2 guests per room). Guests will be placed with a roommate who is also attending a workshop at the Rio Retreat Center. For those staying at the Rio Retreat Bunkhouse, transportation will be available from the Phoenix airport, with two convenient pickup times. Details will be sent with your confirmation email upon completion of the sign-up process.

Those who do not stay at the Rio Retreat Bunkhouse will be responsible for arranging and paying for their own lodging and transportation to the Wickenburg area. A list of lodging and transportation options will be sent with your workshop confirmation email.
