Program Description:

Meridell is a medical model residential treatment center located 30 miles north of Austin in the Texas Hill Country. The goal of Meridell is to provide the highest quality of care in a nurturing and healing manner. Our staff includes psychiatrists, master level therapists, registered nurses, occupational and recreational therapists, and trained mental health technicians.

Meridell Achievement Center is a 112-bed private residential treatment facility on a ranch-style campus in the Texas Hill Country. The center specializes in the treatment of children and adolescents who have emotional, behavioral and neurobehavioral problems. Our greatest asset is our staff, who work together to uphold the center's reputation for excellence in helping patients and their families resolve behavioral health problems.
In a comfortable, therapeutic setting that provides safety and security, patients interact with a team of experts in psychiatry, psychology, neurology, neuropsychology, physical medicine, education and family therapy. Interdisciplinary professionals work together to identify problems and formulate effective individualized treatment plans. We look for the best in each patient and focus on strengths rather than weaknesses.

Aftercare strategies help patients build support systems within their community. Our success is built on our unique clinical expertise, which gives children, adolescents and their families the skills to lead more effective and satisfying lives.

Meridell Achievement Center is a subsidiary of Universal Health Services, Inc., one of the largest providers of high quality healthcare in the nation.

Meridell Achievement Center offers unique opportunities for developing increased self-esteem and to facilitate positive peer and adult relationships through organized sports, therapeutic art and music activities and leisure education. Meridell also accompanies children and adolescents to a variety of community activities, including movies, shopping, local parks and cultural events.

Academic opportunities at Meridell are developed to provide realistic accomplishments in education. Each education program is individually prescribed as part of treatment planning. Special education teachers provide instruction in the on-campus classrooms for full academic credit and promotion. Upon completion of 12th grade, students can be awarded a fully accredited Texas high school diploma.
