The Meadows acquires Remuda Ranch

 The Meadows is pleased to announce the acquisition of Remuda Ranch. Remuda Ranch is an Arizona inpatient and residential center for women, adolescents and children who are suffering from eating disorders and related issues.

Established in 1990, Remuda Ranch offers a full continuum of care at its Wickenburg and Chandler locations. The Remuda Acute Care Program, located in Wickenburg, overlooking the mountains of the Sonoran High Desert, provides a high intensity inpatient program for all age groups. Remuda Ranch offers an equine program in addition to a challenge course with both high and low ropes and zip lines. The Remuda Life Residential Program, located in Chandler, provides transitional care between eating disorder inpatient treatment and home.

 According to the National Institute of Mental Health, eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any psychiatric disorder. In particular, anorexia nervosa has a higher mortality rate than any other cause of death among females between the ages of 15 and 24. Additionally, the chances are great that individuals who have suffered traumatic events will develop an eating disorder as a means of controlling or coping with their circumstances.

“The Meadows is pleased that Remuda Ranch will join our organization and provide us the opportunity to expand our services to the ever-growing need for patients who suffer from an eating disorder,” said Jim Dredge, CEO for The Meadows. “Remuda Ranch has been a leader in this industry with its world-class medical and clinical teams and its excellent clinical outcomes.”

According to Dredge, The Meadows plans to incorporate its trauma treatment best practices to help patients with eating disorders in their recovery process. Dredge adds that Clinical Professionals frequently provide feedback that the trauma work pioneered by The Meadows and its Senior Fellows provides meaningful recovery and sustained healing to patients.
