About

“Our mission at the Claudia Black Young Adult Center is to help young adults and their families forge recovery paths, so they can heal, blossom and thrive.”
- Dr. Claudia Black

Our Winning Formula:

The Claudia Black Young Adult Center provides intensive, experientially based inpatient treatment specifically tailored to young adults ages 18 to 26 who are struggling with unresolved emotional trauma, addictions, or who have a dual diagnosis. Among other unique aspects of our 45-day treatment program:

  • Peer Power: The Claudia Black Young Adult Center takes pride in providing young adults with an opportunity to interact and engage in a safe, secure, and nurturing community comprised of their peers.

  • Family Matters: Our strong focus on family systems has transformed the lives of young adults and their families. Through real-time webinars, we embrace our patients and their families into the process even before treatment officially begins.

  • Back to Basics: Our focus on life skills empowers young adults by teaching skills such as interviewing techniques, resumé development, and how to secure important necessities like health insurance. There’s also a wealth of fun and laughter added to the mix.

  • Experiential Emphasis: Our expansive array of experiential healing modalities includes neurofeedback, mindfulness practices, equine-assisted psychotherapy, challenge courses, and trauma-informed psychodrama, along with EMDR and Somatic Experiencing.

  • A for Assessment: Our emphasis on the most current testing and assessment tools helps paint an accurate picture of each patient’s status and unique needs.

  • Step by Step: Twelve-step involvement provides a source of healing for our clients and their families.

Claudia Black Young Adult Outpatient Program

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 program to welcome individuals at any stage of their recovery, whether they are just starting out or need a recovery refresher.

For graduates of the Claudia Black Young Adult Center at The Meadows in Wickenburg Arizona, the Claudia Black Young Adult Outpatient Program is an extension of the inpatient program in a less structured setting.

The focus of the Claudia Black Young Adult Outpatient Program is on continuing to build skills around relapse prevention while capitalizing on a safe environment for accountability.
