MEET Mark Baumgartner, LPC-S, LCDC, NCC
VICE PRESIDENT of Outpatient Services
Mark Baumgartner’s clinical and leadership career spans more than three decades and a broad range of the substance use disorder and mental health treatment continuum. In March 2021, he joined the Meadows Behavioral Healthcare team to provide leadership for the expansion of their world-class treatment programs into the virtual outpatient environment. It’s an area where he has hands-on experience. In 2020, he led a substance use disorder (SUD) and co-occurring mental health outpatient clinic in Houston that had to pivot to exclusively providing Telehealth IOP and PHP services in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. He was later promoted to vice president of outpatient services.
Baumgartner also spent more than 18 years at The Betty Ford Center, his last five as executive director. One of his proudest career achievements was providing key leadership for the success of the Betty Ford-Hazelden Foundation merger and leading the launch of the Betty Ford Center expansion in West Los Angeles. Throughout his career, he also established treatment delivery innovations to improve patient outcomes and engagement. He developed the Young Adult Program at the Betty Ford Center and the Wellness pilot program that was the basis for Miraval Health Spa in Tucson. Previous experience also includes clinical management at The Texas Department of Juvenile Justice and at Sierra Tucson, where he started his career as a therapist in 1991.
Born in Rochester, Minnesota, Baumgartner earned a Master of Education degree in counseling from Stephen F. Austin State University in Texas. He is a Licensed Professional Counselor-Supervisor, Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor in Texas and a Nationally Certified Counselor. In 2015, under the supervision of Allen Berger, PhD, he received a certification in Gestalt Psychotherapy from the California Institute of Gestalt Experiential Therapy in Los Angeles.
Growing up in the Midwest, the YMCA camps in northern Minnesota became like a second home, leading Baumgartner to minor in forestry/recreation while studying psychology. During college he started his own recovery. It was then that he realized he could merge his areas of study and help others, something he’s been successfully doing for decades.
A father of twins, family is definitely important to Baumgartner. He’s also a dedicated mountain biker, adding that “moving through the wilderness on two wheels is one of my passions.” Involved in a recovery community that shares an interest in live music, he enjoys almost any type of outdoor recreation, and he’s passionate about fitness and wellness.
Meet Jim Corrington Jr., MSW, LCSW
Executive Director of Outpatient Services
Jim Corrington, Executive Director of Outpatient Services, earned his master’s degree in social work at the University of Maryland. He has been in the recovery field as a director/therapist for outpatient programs for over three decades, during which time he has seen thousands of patients and families treated. Corrington has also spent 15 years working with the Arizona Medical Board and Arizona Board of Pharmacy monitoring programs running weekly relapse prevention groups for impaired professionals. In addition, as a former athlete, he also has extensive experience working with impaired professional athletes. Corrington’s personal recovery from addiction and trauma began 36 years ago, and he brings a strong passion to the process.
Each of The Meadows Outpatient Centers offer an intensive eight-week program centered around group therapy, individual work with master’s-level licensed clinicians, and a combination of other evidence-based therapeutic modalities like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Somatic Experiencing (SE), and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). Neurofeedback is provided in our on-site Brain Center, we incorporate 12-Step principles, and we round out our program with trauma-sensitive yoga, art therapy, tai chi, and other holistic offerings. We also have a psychiatrist available on-site for weekly medication management, psychiatric evaluations, and program oversight.
At The Meadows Outpatient Center, we follow a time-tested 8-week curriculum for both in-person and virtual treatment. Developed by our own Meadows Senior Fellows, this rotating approach allows newcomers to join at any point in the process and includes extension options for those who can benefit from more comprehensive trauma treatment.
Our handpicked team of Senior Fellows represents experience in a range of specialties. Each one is involved in worldwide practice and research in their area of expertise, and their oversight constantly challenges The Meadows to excel. Some of the nation’s top addiction and recovery experts, the Senior Fellows also provide ongoing direction, consultation, and training for our staff and work together to ensure that The Meadows Model is the most clinically comprehensive program available today and remains so tomorrow.
Family participation is a valuable part of our treatment approach. The Meadows IOP family program encourages loved ones to become involved in the treatment process through educational sessions and support groups that reinforce healthy, non-enabling interaction. Through the process, they’ll gain knowledge to help them prioritize their own mental and emotional health and support their loved one’s recovery.
