Set in the scenic pine belt region of Brandon, Mississippi, Defining Wellness Centers is a secure oasis unto itself, surrounded by nature’s beauty. You can see the sunshine sparkling off the blue waters of the Barnett Reservoir and take in the colorful reflections of the sky at sunrise and sunset. Our residential campus features tall pine trees, acres of green grass and picturesque cottages for our dual diagnosis clients to reside in.
On the quad, clients will find amenities like the fire pit, where we enjoy relaxing evenings making s’mores and creating friendships that will last the test of time. During the day walking the labyrinth is a great way to work through concerns that trouble you, or to find some quiet meditation time in our meditation garden, to reflect and relieve stress. We have an amazing game room, where everyone is invited to wind down from their day and have fun. Table tennis, board games and more are available.
For those who enjoy the outdoors, we have pickleball courts, volleyball courts and a five-hole putting green to play on. Clients are also always welcome to take a walk or a jog on the property. Medical professionals have begun providing “nature prescriptions” for their patients, emphasizing the importance of experiencing fresh air and sunshine. Spending time outdoors can foster improvements in short-term memory, reduce cortisol levels that contribute to stress, reduce inflammation allowing for feeling an improvement overall, eliminate fatigue and alleviate feelings of depression and anxiety. Science tells us that spending time in nature each day is a phenomenal stress reliever, and we encourage our clients to use our campus for this purpose.
Our gym is open for clients to play a game of basketball on our indoor court, or to use the weight room and cardio equipment. We have treadmills, elliptical machines, a stationary bike, and offer yoga. Wellness is about becoming the strongest, healthiest you – physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. If you’re seeking treatment for drug abuse or alcohol addiction our rehabs in Mississippi are here to support and guide you as you recover.

We make it convenient for you to attend sessions with a variety of scheduling options. It’s important to us that you feel at home and welcomed in each of our locations. Our caring and compassionate treatment team will work with each client throughout all stages of their recovery. Whether you’re attending intensive outpatient or outpatient as a primary treatment or after an inpatient program, we’re here to support you.
All of our centers take an individualized approach to help each client define wellness.
