    This treatment facility is not licensed, nor is it accredited like it claims. I thought about referring a friend, but checked the licensing and accreditation they claimed they had on website and their brochures. They do not have any of this. Big disappointment.
      Desert Palms isn’t bad. It’s safe, comfortable and food is good. I chose this facility because they advertised as Dual Diagnosis and specializes in DBT. That was not experience. I was serious about getting clean so these two things were what I really looked for in a treatment facility. The DBT that I was especially interested in was minimal at best. To be fair, I am sober years now, and I would not be here except for going to rehab. I’m writing this review because I met many men and women who went to a different treatment facility in Palm Springs and they had really good things to say regarding their dual diagnosis and DBT programs. My biggest suggestion is to do sober living after treatment. If you can do sober living away from your home town that’s even better. Good luck to you all. Recovery IS possible. Like I said, I’m three years clean from an 8 year meth addiction.

      This place saved my life and by the grace of God I have 2 1/2 years sober. I currently work at a non-profit detox facility for the indigent and the accommodations of Desert Palms were quite nice in my opinion. The purpose is not to cater to the addict behavior that I read loud and clear throughout these comments but to give you tools to use so that running to drugs or alcohol is not an acceptable option anymore. If you worry about yourself and not other people you will be able to absorb the service they are trying to provide...I would recommend this place to anyone.

      Patients were having sex with each other and getting high at the facility. There weren't enough counselors, and the counselors they had were only there 4 days a week.
        Incomplete information given to clients. They state a gym on premises but it costs $25 per month and is of campus. Also out patient does not provide food even though it is providing housing , however when you have insurance the family has to provide for month sustenance It seems that they want to push through intake without all info
