Nestled in the scenic landscape of Arizona’s high desert, The Meadows treatment center provides holistic care that heals mind, body, and spirit. We focus on recovery from trauma, whether related to addiction, family-of-origin issues, or abuse in any form. We do this by examining the core issues and subsequent developmental patterns that have contributed to unhealthy behaviors, and treating the underlying cause—unresolved psychological trauma. This approach is the foundation of our specialized program and why we are the nation’s premier inpatient treatment center for trauma and addiction.
Our patients benefit from the leadership expertise of our team of Senior Fellows, including Pia Mellody, Dr. Claudia Black, Dr. Shelley Uram, Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, Dr. Patrick Carnes, Dr. Peter Levine, Dr. Kevin McCauley, and others. Each is a world-renowned expert who guides our treatment approach and provides on-going training of our caring team of professionals.
