What is a day at Desert Palms like?

At Desert Palms, each day feels like a fresh start even as it builds on yesterday’s progress and challenges. The days are full, and can be trying, but it all feels worthwhile. It feels like this time you’re going to recover.

DP Bedroom

You wake up early and head into the cool morning for a serenity walk to shake away sleep and mentally prepare for the day.

DP Environment

The desert landscape gives a sense of rejuvenation, like out here you can wipe your slate clean and envision a new start on the horizon.

DP Community Meeting

After breakfast, the hard work begins with a community meeting to set daily goals before going to therapy sessions and group meetings, digging into the tough topics like past traumas and learning coping skills.

DP Yoga/ Meditation

After lunch, you learn about life in recovery and the disease of addiction, followed by a guided meditation or art therapy session.

DP Pool

Then you get the chance to workout at the gym or to decompress and relax out by the pool.

DP 12 Step Meeting

Before dinner, you can make a quick call home and then go to a 12-Step meeting to share your experiences and listen to other people's recovery stories before a group wrap-up session and bedtime.

We learn from each other.

Desert Palms respects your uniqueness, and knowing that can help you learn to accept yourself just as you are. The bonds created with peers and staff are real—you know that there are people who understand what you face in the journey to recovery.

"My therapist was firm and genuine in all matters that concerned me and helped me to understand that this process is not about others but all about me and my perception."
