Now Open In Beautiful Las Vegas!The latest addition to the American Addiction Centers’ family, Desert Hope is a gorgeous treatment oasis located in the heart of Las Vegas. With elegant beauty and modern charm, this 148-bed facility includes a gym, serenity room and complimentary housekeeping. Desert Hope strongly focuses on trauma, problematic behavioral health issues and enlightenment through our own 12-step walk. We offer traditional therapies including group, family and individual, as well as recovery-oriented challenge and expressive therapies, personal training and EMDR. Desert Hope maximizes the probability of sustained recovery with tailored treatment plans and by providing as many services as possible for the restoration and balance of mind, body and spirit.
Clinical Programming"Hope means honesty, open minded, progress and empowerment." - Toril Newman, Clinical Director Desert Hope offers two curriculums: one core, residential program based on a workbook with five series, and an IOP (Intensive Outpatient Program) in which patients go back and forth between treatment in our facility and their communities. Our IOP emphasizes social skill building in everyday life, including resume building, interviewing and parenting skills. With a strong focus on the treatment modalities of Motivational Interviewing and EMDR, we work with the patients wherever they are in the recovery process. We go at their pace. These therapies also provide greater opportunities for patients to get to know those in their cohorts. Evidence-based therapies include Process Group Therapy, in which patients process their recovery and/or interpersonal issues and receive feedback from their peers three times per week. These groups are smaller than cohort groups and very individualized. Patients meet one-on-one with their Primary Therapist for individual therapy at least twice weekly. Experiential therapies include Recovery-Oriented Challenge Therapy, a hands-on and interactive therapy in which patients identify skills applied to the activity at hand to further develop feelings of overall strengths and self-sufficiency.
Wellness ProgrammingDesert Hope not only emphasizes clinical treatment, but also the therapeutic value of physical/nutritional wellness. Class topics include health risks, smoking cessation, HIV awareness and life skills. We also feature lectures by our medical and nursing staff. Classes and lectures, along with interactive wellness activities, teach patients to enjoy taking care of their bodies and making healthy choices. Patients are encouraged to participate in daily morning fitness activities and meet with our certified fitness instructor to develop personalized fitness plans. Group meditation each morning and evening begins and ends the day with positivity, and yoga provides diverse education from a spiritual aspect. Our menus have been approved by registered dietitians and nutritionists, and are created and prepared our professional chef. Connected to our mind-body-spirit philosophy, delicious and healthy foods are provided daily.
