Accommodations and Food
The residential facility is set on a campus on the northern edge of the Sonoran desert and provides privacy and serenity within its walls. The home like setting is brand new and resembles a desert vacation resort as opposed to a treatment facility. There are shared bedrooms that can accommodate up to three clients in one room, a large living room and dining room, and on-site kitchen. There are also outside lounge spaces and a swimming pool, along with conference and meeting rooms, and medical facilities on site. The program treats only 10 women at once.
There is a wellness program at Willow House that focuses on clients eating fresh, organic, healthy meals that are delicious and well balanced. These meals are prepared by an on-site chef.
Treatment and Staff
Treatment at Willow House consists of full, structured days that combine group therapy, recreational activities, spiritual wellness and meditation. A typical day begins with a peer meeting then a group therapy session. By the afternoon clients exercise, and usually attend topic groups, lectures and psychoeducational classes. In the evening there is a meditation then a 12-step meeting. Clients do have some say in what kind of lectures they would like, and have scheduled time where they meet with senior residents. The entire program is designed to last 45 days.
Treatment is a mix of talk and process therapy, support meetings and cutting edge, scientific approaches, like biofeedback and Somatic experiencing. There is also a good bit of holistic treatments incorporated as well. Treatment methods include CBT, EMDR, ACT, The 30 Task Model, and the Meadows signature approach that addresses each client’s history, emotional state, and energy and helps them develop increased resiliency and life skills.
Additional therapies are psychodrama, experiential approaches, expressive therapy like music, art and dance, nutritional and spiritual counseling and neurofeedback. Clients are assigned to a specific counselor upon admission and participate in small, intimate groups.
The staff is headed up by Dr. Stefanie Carnes, who is an expert in trauma and addiction, and credentials includes RN, MDAAC, LPC, CSAT, medical doctors, and nutritionists.
Programming can also address eating disorders and other addictions. Treatment is open to transgender women as well. This location also offers yoga, Tai Chi, and acupuncture. There is a week long family program that uses the principles of the 12 steps along with education and counseling services for the client and their loved ones.

The programming is unique and provides so many different treatment options and approaches.
