About MeadowWood Behavioral Health

The first therapeutic intervention implemented within this program is detoxification services so that our patients can become physically and mentally stable prior to engaging in other methods of care. Detox is supervised by medical staff, including physicians and nurses, who can monitor the physical well-being of patients while providing support as the body is rid of harmful substances and toxins.

Once detoxification services are complete, patients are able to partake in the following methods for care, of which are centered on the 12-Step recovery based approach through total abstinence when treating those struggling to overcome an addiction:

  • Medication management and education
  • Group therapy
  • Creative / expressive therapy
  • Family therapy
  • Daily 12-step meetings
  • Educational lectures

Additionally, this program includes education and counseling for coping skill development and relapse prevention. This unique and beneficial aspect of treatment incorporated in this program is facilitated by seasoned Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselors (CADC), who can offer invaluable support in helping our patients achieve healing and lasting recovery.

At MeadowWood’s inpatient treatment center in New Castle, DE, we put forth every effort to help our patients achieve one hundred percent abstinence from all substances and alleviation from the following mental health concerns:

  • Conduct disorder
