Meadows Model Treatment Comes to Chicago and Atlanta

Atlanta and Chicago Outpatient Announcement

Meadows Behavioral Healthcare adds two new outpatient locations to meet the growing need for mental health services

[PHOENIX, AZ, October 20, 2023] Meadows Behavioral Healthcare (MBH), the leader in trauma, addiction, eating disorders, and co-occurring disorder treatment for more than 45 years, is excited to announce the opening of The Meadows Outpatient Center-Atlanta and The Meadows Outpatient Center-Chicago, both currently accepting patients to address a wide range of mental health issues.

The Atlanta location is celebrating its grand opening today with a community Open House for local providers, referral sources, and others. The new Chicago facility, located in the suburb of Downers Grove, will have an official grand opening celebration on January 26, 2024.

The Meadows Outpatient Center already has a proven track record with established facilities in Scottsdale, Dallas, Silicon Valley, Las Vegas, Denver, Houston, and Austin addressing everything from substance use disorders and mental health issues to past trauma, chronic stress, burnout, depression, and anxiety. As with those programs, the two newest outpatient programs will feature a rotating eight-week curriculum, a mix of traditional and experiential/holistic therapies, and the trusted Meadows Model, which was created under the guidance of the Meadows Senior Fellows, an expert team of industry leaders. Another Meadows differentiator is the on-site Brain Center, which provides neurofeedback and other self-regulation techniques. 

The entire country is experiencing a mental health crisis. According to research from the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI):

  • 8% of US adults experienced mental illness in 2021. This represents 1 in 5 adults or 57.8 million people.
  • 5% of US adults experienced serious mental illness in 2021 (1 in 20 adults or 14.1 million people).
  • 6% of US adults experienced a co-occurring substance use disorder and mental illness in 2021 (19.4 million people).

“This is a great time for us to be expanding our Meadows Outpatient Centers and programs around the country because we want to provide this life-saving treatment for as many people as possible,” says Jim Corrington, Executive Director of Outpatient Services. “Our Meadows Model combined with time-tested substance use disorder outpatient treatment works incredibly well, and our patients in recovery and our outcomes prove that.”

MBH also offers a Virtual IOP program, MBH Connect, for those who aren’t near one of their outpatient locations or need the flexibility of online treatment.

“I’ve seen the power of the Meadows Model to change lives. Our programs do that every day,” says Sean Walsh, CEO of Meadows Behavioral Healthcare. “That’s why we believe it’s so important to increase accessibility to our world-class treatment, bringing it to new locations.”
