Palm Desert Rehab Center | Sovereign Health CA

Palm Desert Rehab Centers

Standing above other Palm Springs treatment centers, Sovereign Health’s Palm Desert location provides evidence-based, effective treatment for mental health and substance use disorders. Our staff of dedicated clinicians used the latest modalities to give patients the best chance at a lasting recovery.

About our facility

Starting as a satellite city of Palm Springs, Palm Desert has developed into one of southern California’s leading resort towns. A short drive from Los Angeles, the area has been a destination for celebrities, golfers and others attracted to the warm, sunny weather, fresh air and peaceful ambiance.

Sovereign Health maintains 10 residences in Palm Springs, Palm Desert and Cathedral City, five of which have pools. All houses have spacious backyards and views of the scenic San Jacinto Mountains.

Men and women are housed separately and sleep two or three to a room. Crisis intervention is available at the houses 24/7. Limited TV and game time are available at the houses. Patients enjoy three professionally prepared meals a day and are able to make specific dietary requests. All houses have laundry facilities, and patients are given responsibility for the upkeep of their living areas by participating in daily chores.

The Palm Springs area features many attractions, which frequently serve as destinations for group outings. Gyms, bowling, local art museums and hiking are just some of the recreational activities patients can participate in.

About our patients

Sovereign is a leading provider of mental health treatment and drug rehab in Palm Springs, and we admit patients 18 and older to our facility. We serve patients who are mentally ill, dealing with a substance use disorder, or have a dual diagnosis of both problems. Most patients stay between 30 and 90 days with us.

Before entering our program, every patient goes through interviews and assessments with staff. This gives us an idea of the patient’s personality and behaviors, and also allows us to create an effective treatment program individually tailored to each patient’s specific needs. Patients also receive medical and psychological checkups before treatment begins as well. Finally, for the safety of both staff members and patients, a tuberculosis skin test is conducted.

Treatment programs

We offer a variety of treatment programs in Palm Desert:

  • Detox: As harmful substances leave the body, they often create unpleasant and harmful withdrawal symptoms. Our staff helps patients navigate this crucial first period of recovery as comfortably as possible.
  • Mental health: We treat patients with bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, depression and other mental disorders.
  • Substance abuse disorders: Patients who are dealing with an addiction to alcohol, prescription medication or illicit drugs can receive treatment in a safe, comfortable environment free of judgment. They will learn new ways to resist temptations and live a sober, productive.
  • Dual diagnosis: A combination of a substance use disorder and a mental health disorder, dual diagnoses are a challenge to treat. Sovereign Health is a specialist in treating dual diagnosis patients.

We make use of effective and alternative treatment methods in Palm Desert, including talk therapy methods such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). CBT teaches patients new ways of understanding themselves and their surroundings while helping them resist cravings and potential triggers. Group therapy provides patients a safe, supportive environment to discuss their problems with others dealing with the same situations they are. Alternative therapies, including equine therapy, art therapy and yoga are also utilized.

Sovereign Health takes a holistic view towards its clients and treatment – we believe in treating the entire patient in body and mind, not just their physical symptoms.

Levels of care

As patients receive treatment, they will move between levels of care. Most patients recovering from drug abuse will go through our detox program.

  • Residential treatment (RTC) allows patients to work on their progress in a safe, friendly environment free from distractions.
  • Partial hospitalization (PHP) programs have the patients attending therapy and treatment during the day, and returning to the treatment houses – or home – at night.
  • Intensive outpatient (IOP) programs are run for only part of the week, giving each patient time to reintegrate themselves back into daily life while still receiving therapy.

For discharging patients and IOP patients, telehealth is also available through Sovereign’s eTherapy. From the comfort of home, patients can go online and interact in real time with a therapist.
