Young Adults

Targeted Treatment for a Unique Population

What We Treat

What We Treat

Claudia BlackThe transition to adulthood can be difficult, especially for those struggling with unresolved emotional trauma, addiction, or mental health issues. The pressures of modern life with its 24-7 social scene and high stress conspire to make these problems worse. What’s needed is a safe and nurturing community where young adults can face their issues with professional guidance from a team who understands the unique factors at play for this specific population. Meadows Senior Fellow Dr. Claudia Black, clinical architect for the Claudia Black Young Adult Center, provided her clinical expertise and guidance in the development of this outpatient program designed to help young adults develop the tools necessary to face the future and their own feelings.

An Outpatient Program Specifically For Young Adults

We recognize that not every young adult struggling with addiction or co-occurring disorders needs inpatient or residential treatment to start their work. Therefore, we have designed the Claudia Black Young Adult Outpatient Program to welcome individuals at any stage of their recovery, whether they are just starting out or need a recovery refresher. For graduates of our sister program, the Claudia Black Young Adult Center, this is an extension of the inpatient program in a less structured setting.

Restart Your Life

Our outpatient program, especially designed for men and women between 18-26 years old who are struggling with addiction and co-occurring disorders, is facilitated by an experienced, highly trained therapist who specializes in treating young adults. All of The Meadows Outpatient Centers offer an twelve-week program that includes intensive group therapy, individual therapy with our master’s-level, licensed clinicians, and a combination of other therapeutic modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Somatic Experiencing (SE), and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). Neurofeedback is provided in our on-site Brain Center, along with trauma-sensitive yoga, art therapy, tai chi, and other holistic offerings. Family participation is also a valuable part of the program. A psychiatrist is available on-site for weekly medication management, psychiatric evaluations, and program oversight. We also incorporate 12-Step principles and subscribe to a total abstinence model.
