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.
