At Willow House at The Meadows, the medical and clinical staff is attentive to the needs of patients and always maintains the level of professionalism and confidentiality that enables patients to fully focus on treatment.
A Model For Women
Our treatment staff utilizes The Meadows Model, which entails:
- Developmental History - A patient’s developmental history is used to track emotional development.
- Emotional State - The therapist assesses whether a patient’s emotional state is less than optimal.
- Patient Actions - The therapist identifies patient actions that create unmanageability and relational problems.
- Younger Ego - Patients learn to identify when they are “activated” or “triggered” into younger ego states.
- Residual Energy - Patients learn that in the present they experience “residual energy” from the past.
- Born Valuable - Patients learn that everyone is born valuable, vulnerable, imperfect, dependent, spontaneous, and open.
- Gain Tools - Patients gain tools to track progress and develop the vocabulary to describe emotions.
- Increased Resiliency - Increased resiliency allows for: availability in relationships, living in the here and now, exploring options, understanding choices, and creating stability.
The Meadows Model is an effective therapy for treatment to help women achieve long-lasting recovery. In a safe and nurturing community composed of their peers, women are guided on their journey of recovery by examining the underlying causes of addiction and co-occurring disorders. The goal is for these individuals to gain the courage to face difficult issues, including grief and loss; heal from emotional trauma; and become accountable for their own feelings, behaviors, and recovery.
