New Castle DelawareAcadia: MeadowWood Behavioral Health Review

For over 10 years, MeadowWood Behavioral Health has provided residential and outpatient treatment for psychiatric and behavioral disorders and substance abuse. Located on an 11-acre campus in New Castle, Delaware, MeadowWood is just south of Wilmington and also serves the residents of New Jersey and Maryland. Clients seeking substance abuse treatment may be admitted to its inpatient detox unit and/or attend its outpatient Partial-Hospitalization Program (PHP) for co-occurring disorders.

MeadowWood’s mission is to provide “compassionate and comprehensive behavioral healthcare services to adolescents, adults and seniors.” Treatment aims to treat the family as a whole, with special attention to co-occurring psychiatric disorders and addiction. MeadowWood is a member of the Acadia provider network, which operates a number of outpatient and residential treatment facilities throughout the US and United Kingdom.

Treatment and Staff

Prospective clients have a full biopsychosocial assessment and are then admitted to detox or the PHP. Detox usually lasts three to seven days, during which time clients are encouraged to participate in 12-step meetings as well as recreational and group therapy, if their health permits.

PHP clients attend group therapy and psychoeducation classes from 8:30 am to 2:30 pm Monday through Friday. An individual meeting with a psychiatrist is also scheduled each day. Most clients complete their PHP treatment plans in two weeks.

The treatment team includes physicians, psychiatrists, LPNs, MSWs and CADCs. Both the detox program and PHP focus on dual diagnosis support. Clients can also receive medication management for their mental health diagnosis. Groups use CBT among other evidence-based modalities to help clients learn coping skills and self-expression. MeadowWood encourages clients to build their support system by attending 12-step meetings outside of treatment hours. Clients can also attend on-site 12-step meetings each Friday.


MeadowWood encourages clients and their families to participate in family therapy. It also facilitates treatment by arranging transportation services for clients who need help traveling to and from treatment. For aftercare, MeadowWood’s treatment team helps clients find one-on-one counseling and sober support meetings such at AA/NA, SMART Recovery or Celebrate Recovery.

In Summary

MeadowWood Behavioral Health’s detox and outpatient PHP offer clients treatment that specializes in dual-diagnosis support for mental health and substance abuse treatment. With its comprehensive mental health treatment team, MeadowWood might be a strong choice for those with psychiatric disorders and/or behavioral challenges that impact their addiction.

  1. I have had the great displeasure of dealing with the Meadowwood Facility in New Castle De. Nothing about what is written in the mission statement or any of the literature in a positive light, have I experienced. From the moment I walked in the door for help with my 18y.o daughter it was a nightmare. The website states that once arrived someone would be there to speak with you within 15 mins. We waited nearly 4 hours to be seen. The intake worker “Jackie” was extremely rude to me, especially on the telephone once I left. This being said, my daughter gave them permission to speak to me, which you can’t get through. The people who answer the telephone are rude. I’ve never been at a facility were unprofessional-ism is the absolute norm… Then I get a call after 2 weeks that they want to have a family session the day of the call… The next day it snows and I receive a call from the Rudest Social Worker Ever “ELSA”… OMG, she calls me to schedule a family session supposedly to release the child. I began expressing my concerns, she began to over talk me, patronize me and became very condescending. She didn’t want to hear any of my concerns. She could care less… Why call. I’m not coming to a family session where the staff is attempting to belittle, undermine and disrespect the family… By the end of the conversation “ELSA” was threatening to Adult Protective services… All I wanted to do was have a conversation. I had not had one with anyone except “Tierra” which by the way was/is the only bright light to this entire experience. Tierra Brown is the only person that treated me respectfully, both on the the telephone and in person. “Christine” the NP she was rude and short as well. Your website states that you foster the well being of your patients and family to find solutions. How is this possible when communication is poor at best, and your staff’s level of professionalism is poor at best. No one is helping us…. No one. I asked the Christine person the week before, if we had a diagnosis or how was my daughter’s treatment coming and it was like pulling teeth. She was not friendly, short… I didn’t understand what I was doing there. She certainly didn’t seem to want to speak to me about anything… No wonder the online rating for this facility is 2 stars. This should not be..
