About Us

Unparalleled Clinical Experience

Defining Wellness Centers is located near Jackson, Mississippi to offer a full continuum of care to those in need of mental health and addiction treatment services. Taking an innovative approach to treatment, the program and team focus on proven therapeutic methods and innovative techniques.

Our Philosophy: Rooted in Trauma-Informed Care

We understand that addiction is often a manifestation of underlying trauma and challenging life experiences. That’s why the goal for all our clients is not simply sobriety. Instead, we aim for a higher outcome: wellness and a sense of purpose. This begins with love and compassion, delivered by staff who have seen and, in many cases, recovered from addiction firsthand.

From there, we create a trauma-informed plan of care that emphasizes client wellness. We believe wellness is an active process of making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life. That’s why we guide clients through a dynamic process of change and growth in order to define what works for their needs and the needs of their loved ones. This can include a variety of different methods—for some it’s a healthy diet and exercise, for others it’s engaging in ongoing therapy, and for someone else it may be creating art or meditating and practicing mindfulness. There is no one path to wellness —that journey is based on the client and their needs. We understand that the greatest wealth we have is our health. That’s why our programs assist clients in defining wellness for themselves so they can achieve their recovery goals.

Our Team: Unparalleled Clinical Experience

Our evidence-based therapeutic treatment combines knowledgeable and compassionate licensed clinicians with board-certified addictionologists and psychiatrists to provide exceptional programming. The treatment team also includes licensed therapists with degrees and certifications in addiction, trauma, marriage and family therapy, psychodrama, art therapy and music therapy. We have personally vetted every member of the treatment team to ensure that they are fully aligned with the program’s compassionate approach, mission, vision and values.

Our Location: Recovery & Southern Hospitality

Located in the heart of the warm and welcoming South, the property sits amidst the stately trees of the Mississippi pine belt. The Defining Wellness Centers inpatient residential campus is a true oasis for healing. Located just off of a scenic reservoir showcasing 100 miles of stunning shoreline, the beautiful property showcases lush greenery and the fresh scent of pine. Hiking trails abound and clients can enjoy fishing in the on-campus pond. On the quad, you’ll find a labyrinth, peaceful pavilions, a fire pit and lovely space in which to enjoy nature and begin the process of restoring yourself. The property is private and allows clients to truly focus on themselves and their healing process. Every part of our program is designed to support rejuvenation, including a nutritious culinary experience, prepared by our gourmet chef and his skilled team. Daily schedules eliminate anxiety about what’s next, providing a treatment services map for clients to follow. Our vision is to support clients in their overall wellness, including physical fitness. We have an on-site fitness center available, featuring an indoor basketball court, weight room with cardio equipment, and yoga classes. Outside you’ll find volleyball courts, a pickleball court, and a putting green. Clients have access to a game room to engage with one another and learn how to have fun while sober. It’s amazing the outcomes that arise from having simple, silly fun without the aid of substances.
