Palm Desert Treatment Programs
The treatment programs offered at the Palm Desert location include detox, substance addiction, mental health, dual diagnosis and Personal Recovery Integrating Men’s Experiences program (PRIME). The patient is initially assessed by a team of professional experts who determine which program is best suited for his or her needs.
If an individual is diagnosed solely with a mental health condition such as bipolar disorder or depression and do not have a current history of substance abuse, then he or she is placed on the mental health track and will partake in therapy with other individuals in this track.
Patients who are battling substance use such as illicit drugs or alcohol will enter the substance addiction track and be placed in a setting with other individuals who are in the same track. Individuals who have both a substance abuse issue and a co-occurring mental health disorder are term dual-diagnosis, meaning they have at least one diagnosis due to substance abuse an another diagnosis due to mental health.
The detox program focuses on treating acute patients who need help in detoxing for substances. These separate tracks allow specialized treatments for each group.
