Rio Retreat Center at The Meadows
The Rio Retreat Center is another member of the luxury rehab facilities offered by the Meadows group. Situated in Wickenburg, Arizona on the fringes of the Sonoran Desert, the Rio Retreat Center focuses on workshops and intensive programs to help clients end their addictions. The rehab center uses alternative approaches and offers a unique methodology to treat clients.
Therapists work with residents on a variety of treatment programs including sex addiction, relationship issues, grief and loss, and trauma. The Rio Retreat Center offers treatment programs that consist of psychoeducation, experiential therapy, 12 steps, and more evidence-based recovery plans.
The biggest differences between the Rio Retreat Center and the Meadows’ other rehab facilities are the cost and time clients experience in the programs. Rio Retreat focuses on short, intensive sessions to treat guests. The five-day therapeutic workshops delivered by the center’s staff make it possible for clients to take a week away from their normal lives to undergo treatment before returning home.
Rio Retreat Center is part of the world-class family of the Meadows group. The facility resembles a desert ranch rather than a treatment center. Lush green grass awaits guests just outside the center while mountains can be seen over the horizon. It is a beautiful isolated setting for residents to immerse themselves in to full recover from addiction, trauma, or loss.
