The Meadows Ranch

Meadows Ranch Rehab


Meadows Ranch is a luxury rehab offering from the individuals at the Meadows group in Wickenburg, Arizona. The Meadows Ranch is a niche recovery rehab center situated on the edge of the Sonoran Desert as a part of the Meadows group campus. The rehab center focuses on female residents suffering from eating disorders. Girls and women experiencing bulimia, anorexia, and binge eating disorders can find a safe place at the Meadows Ranch.


Residents will undergo a multi-dimensional recovery plan to treat co-occurring disorders. Treatment enables residents to confront their eating disorders head on, and the Meadows Ranch has space for 32 residents at any one time. The center separates adult females from adolescents ensuring they do not live in the same living quarters and residents will share rooms with as many as three women living in a dorm-style quarter.


The Meadows Ranch does not offer private rooms unless it is a very special circumstance. Having residents all live in the same room prevents anyone from isolating themselves from the remainder of the group. Living quarters come with full-sized beds, dressers, lamps, and bedside tables.


The luxury facility makes great use of its large outdoor space. Guests will work in the Meadows Ranch’s garden to grow fruits and vegetables with many of the items grown in the garden used by the on-site chefs to cook nutritious meals. A staff of nutritionists work on-site to help each resident develop a healthy diet. In addition, a workout area and swimming pool are available.
