Taking the Next Step to Change

We’re Here to Help

Our Workshop Coordinators are here to help and are experienced in assisting others with compassion, dignity, and respect − values that are central to Rio Retreat Center. Since workshops fill quickly, we encourage making reservations three to four weeks in advance.

How to Register for a Workshop

Registration is only available by contacting a Workshop Coordinator. We want to ensure that you are signing up for the workshop that best fits your situation. Therefore, online registration is not available unless stated on the workshop page.

Why can’t you simply fill out an online form? Because we want to connect with you early on in the process, ensuring that you are signing up for the workshop that best fits your situation. This allows us to listen to your concerns and ask the right questions, something an online form can’t do. That’s why online registration is not available unless stated on the individual workshop page.

Payment Information

The programs offered at Rio Retreat Center at The Meadows are private pay, but most workshops are now eligible for reimbursement through most insurance plans. Our admissions specialists can help review your options.

Cancellations less than 14 days before the beginning date of the workshop are non-refundable. If you have to cancel or transfer your workshop, please contact our Intake Department at 800-244-4949 as soon as possible; we often have a waiting list of people who want to attend.
