Hope and Healing in the Desert
Perfect for those who have already completed a residential, inpatient or partial-hospitalization treatment program or someone who doesn’t require a higher level of care, The Meadows Outpatient Center-Las Vegas is based on Pia Mellody’s time-tested Meadows Model of Developmental Immaturity. Let us work with you to determine the safest and most appropriate program for your specific treatment needs.
Away from the busy Las Vegas Strip, our welcoming facility is located near Red Rock Canyon and the popular Summerlin neighborhood, with year-round sunshine making the Meadows’ Intensive Outpatient Center the ideal place to begin your journey of recovery. Conveniently located just five minutes from I-215 and 15 minutes from the international airport, we offer intensive outpatient and partial-hospitalization treatment to address substance use, mental health, and trauma.
GeORGE Gatski, MBA, CADC
DIRECTOR, Meadows Outpatient Services-Las Vegas
Originally from Athens, Greece, George Gatski relocated to the US with his family at age five, first to Florida then to Las Vegas where he’s lived since the mid-1970s. He earned his MBA from University of Phoenix, where he studied human services and management, and he is also a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor (CADC) and CADC-Supervisor.
Gatski’s own recovery journey helped inspire his career path. With over 30 years in recovery, he started out as a technician once he had five years of sobriety. He’s now worked in the field of substance use disorders and mental health for more than two decades as a CEO, including stints at Las Vegas Recovery Center, Acadia Behavioral Health, and Azure Acres Recovery Center.
In 2022, Gatski was tapped to oversee the opening of The Meadows Outpatient Center-Las Vegas, where he serves as director. It’s a role he relishes, finding inspiration in helping others change their lives and making an impact on the recovery of all who come through the doors. That makes sense for this energetic professional with a big heart who is passionate about helping others any way he can.
Married with three adult children out of the house, the Gatskis also have four kids at home: a son who is in college and three grandkids they adopted. He enjoys spending time with family and friends, is passionately involved with 12-Step recovery, and is an avid sports fan.
