Desert Comprehensive Treatment Center View Specialties

Desert Comprehensive Treatment Center (CTC) opioid use disorder program is located in Palm Springs, California. We’re the premier outpatient addiction treatment center in Palm Springs, with programming designed for adults age 18 and older of all genders.
Desert CTC offers medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid addiction. MAT is an independently researched program that has proved to deliver a greater number of successful outcomes for people who are seeking addiction recovery. MAT protocols are evidence-based and supported by extensive scientific research. This treatment method is safe and effective. All the medications used at Desert CTC are FDA-approved for addiction treatment use. They include naltrexone, methadone, Suboxone, and buprenorphine.
Methadone has long been recognized for reducing the painful effects of opioid withdrawal and minimizing cravings. Easing withdrawal symptoms allows patients to stay focused on other aspects of recovery. However, methadone alone does not help all patients and can cause unwanted side effects for some people. Our qualified clinicians create an individualized treatment plan by determining the most beneficial medication and dosage for each patient. Our clinicians realize that people react to medications differently. We monitor each person and work closely with them to make sure that the administered medications are giving adequate relief. Personalized treatment plans and therapies are at the core of our program.
Prescription medications play an important role, but medications alone do not treat the emotional and mental health aspects of addiction. By offering group therapy and individual therapy, Desert CTC provides whole-person recovery. Combining the use of prescription medication and psychotherapeutic methods is what distinguishes Desert CTC as a comprehensive treatment center.
Individual therapy offers an opportunity for patients to discuss personal matters in a confidential, one-on-one setting with a trained mental health professional. Patients can feel free to explore past experiences, including trauma, that may have contributed to their struggles with opioid addiction. Discussing negative ways of thinking and behaving offers insight into what changes need to be made to maintain recovery. Group therapy brings peers together for mutual support. It offers a chance to practice new communication and conflict resolution skills that are crucial for long-term recovery.
The caring staff at Desert CTC is committed to making the admissions process as easy as possible so that patients can begin receiving the treatment they need. After evaluations have been completed, including health and addiction history, a clinician will have the information they need to develop an effective, individualized treatment plan.
