The Desert Palms Treatment Approach

The Meadows Desert Palms offers patients personalized, evidence-based treatment for addiction, trauma and co-occurring mental health disorders in Cathedral City, CA.

On-site Detoxification

Our team of medical professionals will supervise your detoxification process and ease you off substances while monitoring your vitals and preparing you for the next step in treatment. Desert Palms uses Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) for patients if appropriate.

Residential Treatment

Desert Palms is a 36-bed facility with everything you need to focus on recovery located on our campus. Your daily schedule, without the distractions of outside life, focuses on preparing you for a life of recovery after treatment.

Outpatient Treatment

The outpatient program provides transitional living and a less demanding daily schedule so you can transition to a life after treatment while receiving the support you need for a life in recovery.
