Located a half hour south of Birmingham in the West Midlands, Bayberry Meadows is a private, luxury treatment facility that specializes in the care of clients struggling with an array of issues including alcohol and substance use disorders as well as co-occurring disorders like various process addictions, workplace burnout, anxiety and depression. Licensed through the CQC, the Cottages provides a continuum of care that includes detox, residential treatment and two years of aftercare with a focus on relapse prevention. Since the facility primarily offers medication management and evidence-based therapy, the 12-step method is not a component of the programming.
Accommodations and Food
Bayberry Meadows is the newest location in the Bayberry Clinic and Recovery Centre network. The facility is situated in a lovely, rustic farmhouse surrounded by private gardens and renovated barns and a short walk to the man-made Earlswood Lakes. With only six clients at a time, the Meadows offers an atmosphere that is simultaneously private and familial. The gorgeous countryside landscape provides the perfect spot to begin the recovery journey. Every room is private, equipped with comfortable furnishings, a queen or full-sized bed, plenty of natural sunlight and a colorful contemporary decor. There is a comfortable common area with sofas for lounging and a flatscreen TV with Netflix. Each room has views of the outdoor lawn and gardens.
Residents of the Meadows prepare and cook meals together under the guidance of the culinary staff. The menu is delicious and nutritious, using fruit and vegetables grown on the grounds. Individuals with allergies or dietary restrictions are accommodated.
Treatment and Staff
Upon arrival to the Meadows, every resident is assigned a primary therapist that guides them throughout the entire treatment process. Clients undergo an assessment that assists in determining the most effective treatment program customized to meet the specific needs of the individual. If deemed necessary, clients go straight into the detox program. The Meadows provides a medical detox complete with around-the-clock supervision and medications to curb withdrawal symptoms. Many clients are able to join the treatment program after three days of detox.
While the length of stay in residential treatment varies depending on the specific needs of the resident, most clients complete the program in 28 days. The Meadows believes that the most effective treatment involves a combination of many therapies. To this end, clients can expect a range of therapeutic methods that include daliy individual and group sessions rooted in evidence-based methods like CBT as well as holistic approaches like mindfulness meditation, life script exercises, weekly creative workshops, nutritional counseling, yoga, pilates and massage. The staff also utilizes EMDR to treat past trauma as a causal component of current illnesses.
The Bayberry Meadows team is made up of a physician, psychiatrist, therapists, nursing team and an around-the-clock support team. For clients in need of dual diagnosis support, medication management is available.
Visitors are welcome and clients can schedule them anytime. Families are under no obligation to speak with staff. Residents can also choose whether or not to maintain contact with the outside world. To this end, the facility can arrange Internet, TV and phone access.
After completion of the program, the Meadows provides two years of aftercare. This includes weekly meetings at the Meadows that focus on support and relapse prevention.
