The Rio Retreat Center at The Meadows is a state-of-the-art facility designed with participants’ healing and empowerment in mind. Those who attend a workshop at the Rio Retreat Center at The Meadows will have the option to participate in additional onsite activities that will help them focus and unwind in ways that jump-start healing and recovery.
A Unique Healing Experience
- Expressive Arts
Participants can express themselves through a variety of modalities ranging from painting to music therapy to psychodrama.
- Yoga, Tai Chi, and Acupuncture
Many alternative or progressive exercises such as Tai Chi and Yoga reduce stress by focusing on healing the mind, body, and spirit. We also incorporate Acupuncture, an ancient Chinese medicinal technique that eases pain, alleviates stress, and promotes wellness.
- 12-step meetings
Twelve-step meetings help patients realize they’re not alone on their journey of recovery. At meetings, individuals have an opportunity to share their feelings and hear other people share their experience, strength, and hope.
- Live Music and Camp Fires
Workshop participants will have opportunities to unwind and socialize in the evenings during live music performances and campfire activities.
- Equine therapy
Through interactions between patients and horses, patients learn new ways of dealing with trauma, addictions, and relationships. Trained equine specialists use the interactions to illustrate the relationship patterns patients exhibit with people in their lives.
- Challenge Courses
Our challenge courses involve an intricate network of ropes, cables, and logs. All activities are designed to address issues that are being explored through workshops including group communication, problem-solving, trust, planning, teamwork, facing fear, cooperation, understanding self, and self-esteem.
Workshop participants will be served three meals per day, each prepared by The Meadows' extraordinary chef. Meals are catered to facilitate balanced nutrition as part of the overall holistic healing experience.
