Welcome to the Claudia Black Young Adult Center

It can be hard to ask for help, and we see young adults come in every day who are resistant, skeptical, or scared. They’re not totally sure they have a problem, and if they do see an issue, they may not be completely committed to addressing it. We also get to see those same individuals transformed as they leave with a sense of hope, new skills, and direction.

Why Choose Us?

The Claudia Black Young Adult Center provides intensive, experientially based inpatient treatment specifically tailored to young adults ages 18 to 26 using our proven Meadows Model. Those who come through our doors may be struggling with unresolved emotional trauma, drug or alcohol addiction, mental health conditions, or a dual diagnosis. Our team of treatment professionals is equipped to help them address those issues with healing that happens among their peers. But we’re not just treating conditions, we’re treating people, and we’re also here to help them discover who they’re meant to be.

What Treatment Looks Like at CBC

At the Claudia Black Young Adult Center, we recognize that every individual has their own unique background, interests, strengths, and challenges. That’s why we firmly believe that successful treatment isn’t one size fits all. It combines a diverse range of powerful methodologies that work together to foster support, discovery, and healing. Group and one-on-one therapy, techniques like Somatic Experiencing®, EMDR, and neurofeedback as well as holistic options like equine therapy, expressive arts, yoga, and tai chi all combine to create a well-rounded program that addresses the whole person.

Explore Our Campus

Our scenic campus is spread across 14 acres, just 50 miles northwest of Phoenix, but a world away. The Claudia Black Young Adult Center is a professional facility with a decidedly un-clinical feel. The spaces are casual and comfortable, there are a variety of activities, and the peacefulness of the desert setting lends itself to healing and renewal. But don’t take our word for it. See for yourself.
