Our Premier Psychiatric & Addiction Treatment Programs

In an effort to provide the highest quality of treatment available for a number of different psychiatric conditions, MeadowWood’s inpatient treatment center offers multiple treatment programs, allowing us to address each patient’s specific needs in a compassionate and comprehensive manner.

Our Unique Approach

At MeadowWood Behavioral Health Hospital, we believe that each patient is unique, which is why all of our treatment programs focus on treating the person – not just his or her illness. Our treatment teams work closely with patients and their families to understand the issues they are facing in order to create an individualized treatment plan. This plan draws upon the skills of a physician-led team of clinical professionals that include Master’s level therapists, care managers, registered nurses, recreation therapists, substance abuse counselors, medical consultants, and qualified health technicians who work together in order to address the patient’s individual needs. Throughout the entire treatment process, we make sure to engage in open communication between clinical team members, our patients, and our patients’ families so that everyone remains up-to-date on treatment progress. Furthermore, we want to ensure that the main focus is always on the patient and helping him or her to achieve lasting recovery.

Adolescent Behavioral Health

This newly opened program combines the strength of a premier mental health provider with comprehensive behavioral health treatment that is customized for youth ages 12 to 17.

Adult Inpatient Program

Our adult program is tailored to meet the specialized needs of those 18 years of age and older while providing comprehensive psychiatric assessments and inpatient stabilization for a large number of psychiatric conditions.

Senior Behavioral Health Program

This program is designed specifically for older adults, aged 55 and older, who are struggling with a vast array of diagnoses, including behavioral problems and the complications brought on by dementia.

Co-Occurring Program

Our co-occurring program is for adolescents, adults, and seniors who are struggling with a psychiatric crisis in addition to substance abuse or dependence.


Finally, our partial hospitalization program (PHP) is designed to assist adolescents, adults, and seniors who still require stabilization, but who do not need the intensity of full inpatient hospitalization.

For More Information

At MeadowWood’s inpatient treatment center, our goal is to provide patients with the stabilization needed to be able to move on to a lower, less intensive level of care. Our treatment center strives to deliver the highest quality of care that will allow our patients to reach their full potential.

What Past Clients Say

I came here during the worst time of my life. I had so much anxiety coming in but the girls in the admissions area were so pleasant and answered all my questions. The hospital was clean and staff were friendly and helpful on the unit. The medicine they gave me helped so much, and I finally feel like myself again. If you’re willing to participate and go to all the groups, you will get something out of the program. I went right from inpatient to their day program for a week afterwards, and that helped me stay focused too.
