Evidence-Based Recovery Techniques

Evidence-Based Recovery Techniques

Tailored to fit your unique needs

Meridian offers residential treatment for clients who need a structured, intensive program with 24/7 care and supervision. The length of residential stay depends on a client's individual needs, but typically is from 14 to 28 days.

To help you overcome substance misuse and pursue sustained recovery, Meridian utilizes evidence-based therapies and introduces principles of time-tested 12-step programs. Our program is based on a bio-psycho-social-spiritual foundation that is integral to recovery. Through education, psychotherapy, 12-step programs, integrative health and physical healing, you will gain deeper insight into the origins of your condition and begin your journey to long-term recovery.
Our program is designed to address all aspects of the disease of addiction and underlying behavioral health issues. We integrate research and clinical practices from medical, psychological, social, familial and self-help communities.

We provide residential treatment for these substances:

  • Alcohol
  • Prescription drugs
  • Opiates - Heroin
  • Marijuana
  • Designer Drugs
  • Club Drugs
  • Cocaine
  • Amphetamines
  • If you decide to stay with us for treatment, your treatment plan will be developed specifically for you based on your goals, needs and conditions. Our specially trained and licensed therapists will work with you to discuss your background, history, family, home and work, and your personal goals. Then, we will determine the types of therapies and activities that will best help you reach your goals and develop a recovery-based lifestyle. These will include some or all of the following:

    • Individual counseling sessions, group sessions, lectures and workshops
    • Twelve-Step programming
    • Art therapy
    • Yoga and other exercise
    • Outdoor recreational activities
    • During your residential stay at Meridian, you will also examine cultural, social and personal relapse triggers and develop a relapse prevention plan with acquired and practiced skills. This is an essential process that will allow you to understand factors that could lead you to relapse and develop a plan to prevent that from happening.
