Counseling Program Designed for You

Treatment is customized to meet your individual, unique needs. Though the Catalyst schedule varies at each location, most provide the following components:


Group counseling is a powerful and key component of Catalyst. These sessions will help you:

  • Integrate the spiritual, emotional and relational aspects of your life.
  • Discover where you are right now and set realistic goals for where you would like to be.
  • Learn how to establish healthy boundaries for yourself and with others.
  • Gain insight through interaction with others in the group.
  • Learn and develop effective communication and interrelationship skills.
  • Share feelings and learn from other clients in a safe, controlled environment.


During your time at Catalyst, you will be assigned a personal therapist who will be dedicated to helping you:

  • Identify and clarify personal problems and issues.
  • Understand developmental issues related to your relationship difficulties and emotional problems.
  • Learn, practice, and develop new coping skills that are practical and applicable to your everyday life.
  •  Discover family issues that have contributed to unhealthy choices and lifestyles.
  • Prepare for leaving the program and continuing the healing process.


Spiritual Growth Group

A specific goal of Catalyst is to restore, renew and refresh your relationship with God. This group will help you:

  • Discover and work through the emotional and spiritual obstacles that prevent you from experiencing God’s purpose and plan for your life.
  • Understand yourself better and learn how to more fully and completely experience God’s love, forgiveness, and acceptance.
  • Develop practical strategies that will help you lead a life of spiritual integrity on a daily basis.

Creative Discovery Group

While most of the Catalyst program is designed to process issues verbally, expressive therapy incorporates different approaches, such as:

  • Art therapy
  • Interactive activities
  • Relaxation techniques


Life Skills Group

Daily life skills groups are an important part of Catalyst, where our team will help you grow in:

  • Effective communication
  • Health and wellness
  • Setting boundaries
  • Assertiveness techniques

"I’ve been hospitalized and participated in both PHP (Partial-Hospitalization Programs) and IOP (Intensive Outpatient Programs) before. None of the others stand up next to Meier Catalyst. I am so very impressed and hopeful. I always felt safe here. The entire team showed compassion and love. Thank you." Michael  1/22/16


"I am blessed to have been able to participate in this program.  It is the best therapy I have ever had.  My prior experiences at other treatment facilities did not come close to treating all aspects of a person like Meier Clinics has done.  I know I will improve and heal using the skills and tools given to me here. . . I do see hope again."  Sandra  2/25/2015


"I did not want to come, and it was very difficult at first.  As I adjusted to the system, it became easier, and I would say that it has lifted me from a position of desperation and hopelessness to one where hope has been restored."  Mark 1/9/2015


"Meier Clinics' genuine staff made a huge difference in my life and now I've a more emotionally healthy life!"  Gabrielle 12/31/2014


"My experience here is one of the highlights in my life.  The things that happen when you let God take control of your situation are absolutely amazing.  Every single staff member made a positive impact in my life and I am forever grateful for that and this place." Elaine A. 6/4/13


"Your program and the caring people here saved my life."  Joseph 4/19/13


"All of the therapists were wonderful, compassionate, caring, and insightful.  They were amazing in their ability to ask just the right question or make an observation to help us to take our own steps toward healing and wholeness.  I am grateful for each one of them."  Mary Anne 3/28/13
