Scholarship Aid – Getting the right treatment at the right time can be life-changing, but for many people the cost of treatment is a barrier to getting help. That’s why we knew it was important to partner with treatment programs across the country to offer scholarship aid for inpatient and outpatient services. Scholarships can bridge the gap between the cost of treatment and the need for professional help.
Behavioral Health Awareness – Behavioral health is a global issue, and our communities are central to restoring wellbeing. Being a participant in the healing process increases our capacity to heal one another. That’s why we invest in awareness campaigns, educating communities on important issues that affect all of us. Topics range from the effects of early childhood relational trauma and the role of trauma in addiction to suicide prevention and reducing the negative stigma around substance abuse and mental health issues.
Continuing Education for Professionals – Behavioral health professionals help facilitate change. They impact the lives of their clients and families by giving them the tools needed to develop strategies and skills for healing and recovery. The Meadows Senior Fellows can bring their expertise to working professionals in the form of continuing education that allows them to expand their knowledge and provide the best services possible.
Research – Scientific research builds knowledge and informs action, and we need ongoing research to improve the effectiveness of addiction and trauma treatment. We know recovery is possible — we’ve seen it and lived it. Though strategic alliances we can advance cutting-edge research projects, resulting in findings that are crucial to future policy, practice, and education.
Each of these four initiatives operates separately but they all come together to support our overall vision of hope, help, and healing.
