ACTIVITIES AND EXPERIENCES TO ENHANCE YOUR STAY

The Rio Retreat Center at The Meadows is a state-of-the-art facility designed with participants’ healing and empowerment in mind. Those who attend a workshop at the Rio Retreat Center at The Meadows will have the option to participate in additional onsite activities, as available, that can help them focus and unwind in ways that jump-start healing and recovery.

Yoga, Tai Chi, and Acupuncture

Many alternative or progressive exercises such as tai chi and yoga (and in some cases, goat yoga) reduce stress by focusing on healing the mind, body, and spirit. We also incorporate auricular acupuncture, an ancient Chinese medicinal technique that eases pain, alleviates stress, and promotes wellness.

Pool, Live Music, and Campfires

At Rio Retreat Center, guests who are lodging on the property can enjoy relaxing at the pool, in season, and working out in our gym. Workshop participants will also have opportunities to unwind and socialize in the evenings during live music performances and campfire activities.

Challenge Course and Expressive Arts

Our challenge courses involve an intricate network of ropes, cables, and logs. All activities are designed to address issues that are being explored through workshops, including group communication, problem-solving, trust, planning, teamwork, facing fear, cooperation, understanding self, and self-esteem. For our creative participants, Rio Retreat offers expressive arts where individuals can express themselves through a variety of modalities ranging from painting to music therapy to psychodrama. [Note: The Challenge Course is not available during all workshops.]

Equine Experiential

Through interactions with Rio Retreat Center’s horses and a short activity, participants can see patterns of behavior and discover truths that reinforce what they are learning in their workshops or their own personal healing journeys.

Labyrinth

Whether used as a virtual quest or simply as a tool for meditation and reflection, the ancient form of the labyrinth’s twists and turns continue to engage the imagination. Rio Retreat Center’s custom labyrinth is available to all workshop participants.

Brain Center

A self-service version of The Meadows’ full-size center, Rio Retreat’s Brain Center allows workshop participants to use neurofeedback and other techniques to self-regulate and prepare themselves for the deeper work of treatment.

Learn More

In addition, participants have the option of participating in 12-Step meetings, helping patients realize they’re not alone on their journey of recovery. At meetings, individuals have an opportunity to share their feelings and hear other people share their experience, strength, and hope.

To accompany your workshop experience, participants will be served three meals per day, each prepared by The Meadows’ extraordinary chef. Meals are catered to facilitate balanced nutrition as part of the overall holistic healing experience.
