About MeadowWood Behavioral Health

Premier Mental Health and Co-Occurring Addiction Treatment Center for Adolescents, Adults, and Seniors

In the heart of New Castle County, MeadowWood Behavioral Health Hospital is the leading residential treatment center. We offer multiple levels of care to adolescents, adults, and seniors in the New Castle and Wilmington, Delaware area. At MeadowWood, we know how isolated people with mental health and addiction issues feel. Our strength is our compassion and dedication to helping our patients and their families in their time of need. Delivering the highest quality care is our daily goal.

We provide tailored programming to people struggling with depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, or an addiction to drugs or alcohol (including specialty programming for patients with co-occurring disorders). Located on eleven private acres, our 93-bed psychiatric and addiction treatment facility is staffed by a highly-acclaimed team of medical and recovery professionals. MeadowWood Behavioral Health Hospital offers a secure, encouraging environment for patients to cope with and move past external stresses to focus on repairing their health and rebuilding their lives.

Psychiatric and addiction services include:

  • Free, confidential mental health assessments (available 24 hours a day)
  • Referral services
  • Adolescent Behavioral program
  • Adult Psychiatric program
  • Senior Behavioral Health program
  • Co-Occurring Diagnosis Hospitalization program
  • Co-Occurring Partial hospitalization program

Treatment programs are designed to meet each person’s distinct need for rehabilitative care. Our physician-led teams work with each patient in achieving better health, rather than merely diagnosing and treating symptoms. We provide individualized psychiatric and detox plans, coordinated between a team of health care providers, family members, and other community support systems.
Addictions we treat:

  • Alcohol
  • Benzodiazepines
  • Heroin
  • Meth
  • Prescription painkiller

Untreated mental health and substance abuse issues can be devastating to a person’s life. As such, we are committed to helping individuals understand how to free themselves and get their life back. Contact MeadowWood for more information about building your foundation for a lifelong recovery.

Excellent testing done. They don't just take your vitals and send you home. They did blood work, chest scans, heart scans. Communicated very well to patients in diagnosis as well. Fabulous care. And very clean facility! The front desk staff is very pleasant as well.

Awesome nursing staff. Very attentive. Had a very good doc who listened with even eye contact. And not racing to get you out the door. I liked that a lot of staff are too in recovery and know exactly what patients are dealing with. Laid back but with good structure too. I was only in 5 maybe 6 days. This stay taught me more and I got out of it a lot more than other place I have been in. And have many many other places through the years. If needed, despite the distance I would go to Meadow Wood first choice.

Absolutely amazing programs for kids to adults. Mental health to substance abuse. No judgement zone, the staff treats you with respect no matter what. Food is good. Therapy groups are great. And the A.A. Meetings are amazing, chaired by people who aren't patients.

I went there back in February for a suicide attempt, the staff was very caring and very kind. They were truly there to help you, they listened to your problems, and were there if you needed them. If you take someone here you have no worry about them, they will be in good hands.

The staff is cordial and caring. They helped me through a difficult time in my life and offered great out patient care programs that continued my treatment. Shouts out to Mr.B, Karl and my man Cam, thank you all so much for the care and support!
