Meridell opened in 1961 in Liberty Hill, Texas. It started as an emotional-growth ranch with one residence for teenage boys. In 2016, we celebrated our 55th anniversary. We are a 134-bed co-ed medical-model residential treatment center (RTC). In 1961, Liberty Hill was a rural exurb of Austin. Today, highways make Liberty Hill a northwest suburb of Austin with an easy commute to the city center and international airport.
