Workshops

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

Transform Your Life

Our workshops address the needs of those who have just begun a recovery process as well as those who have been on a recovery path and may have hit a plateau 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 jump-start and enhance their personal recovery journey by gaining insight into unhealthy patterns and practicing new relational skills within a safe environment.

Pricing & Registration

Workshops are not covered by insurance carriers. Please call for pricing. Since workshops fill quickly, we encourage making reservations three to four weeks in advance. Register by contacting our Intake Department at 800-244-4949.

Times

Workshops run Monday through Friday – 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., unless otherwise noted. The schedule is flexible, accommodating the group process.

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.

Please Note

Dress should be casual, comfortable and fairly conservative in style. We discourage wearing anything that may cause distraction such as tank tops, sleeveless or low cut shirts, or dresses. Skirts and shorts must be knee length or longer, leggings must be worn with a shirt that extends to mid-thigh. Please avoid any tight or revealing clothing. Participants are required to wear shoes at all times. The Meadows has a strict smoking policy. Smoking is allowed only in designated outdoor areas, and minors are not allowed to smoke anywhere on the property. Electronic cigarettes, cigars, pipes and smokeless tobacco are prohibited.

Cancellation Policy

We rely on an accurate attendance count to make important arrangements for your workshop. If a cancellation occurs 14 or more days prior to the start of the workshop, a full refund, less a $600 administrative fee will be issued or an allowance is made for a one-time transfer to another workshop date. There is a $100 transfer fee for this service. Cancellations less than 14 days before the beginning date of the workshop are non-refundable. If you have to cancel or transfer your workshop, please contact our Intake Department at 800-244-4949 as soon as possible—we often have a waiting list of people who want to attend.
