Bloomington, Indiana
Diana Pierson,
Director of Business Development for
Residential Services in the State of Indiana

BHC Meadows Hospital is “not just a hospital, it is an environment dedicated to helping patients restore their health and get a fresh start.” They offer their services to children, adolescents, and adults on an inpatient and outpatient basis, using a team of professionals comprised of board-certified and child-trained physicians and master’s-level clinicians for every treatment program. Meadows provides same-day assessments and recommendations to individuals and families at both their Bloomington and Terre Haute locations, available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Referrals for a free assessment may be made by family members, friends, physicians, mental health professionals, educators, and other community professionals. Their “team of competent and compassionate mental health professionals” is available for assessment and treatment recommendations for emotional problems relating to: substance abuse, suicidal thoughts, depression, child and adolescent behavioral problems, psychotic episodes, anxiety and panic disorders.

Meadows offers personalized care and a wide array of behavioral health services and programming to address and treat individual needs, built on excellent communication among patients, their families, referral sources, and our team of professionals. Their Chemical Dependency Intensive Outpatient treatment is based on “education about the disease, relapse-prevention planning, and the 12-step principle of recovery.” They also offer short-term, acute-care that includes daily visits with psychiatrist, family therapy, 24 hour nursing care, group psychotherapy, group psychoeducation, expressive therapy, comprehensive discharge planning, court-ordered evaluations, and substance abuse programs. Their Center for Adolescents, ages 13 –1 7 provides adolescents and families with the help for handling emotional pain, developmental struggles, depression, substance abuse and dependency.” Another option, for children, adolescents, and adults who experience clinical problems that require daily intensive evaluation and treatment, is their partial hospitalization program, which involves a treatment program during the day, with the client returning home during the evening. They also have a Center for Adults ages 18 and over, that treats psychiatric disorders and/or chemical dependency problems of all types, using an interdisciplinary team approach to assessment and treatment.”

Meadows Hospital also encourages personal growth, offering recreational activities designed to build self-esteem and confidence. The beautiful location of the facility is the ideal setting for educational outings, such as team-building exercises, games, and sports. They also have an Alpine Tower, and an indoor climbing wall and gymnasium. Their operations are fully accredited by the Joint commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) and their hospital is also approved under Indiana’s Child Care Institutional License for the residential care of children and adolescents.
