Desert Hope Treatment Center
Part One: My experience at Desert Hope played a remarkable part in my life. That is why I want to share it with anybody who has been struggling with alcohol, drug or any kind of dependency for a period of time and also share it with those who might want to support another person in need of help. Shortly after finishing my assessment over the phone with American Addiction Centers, they scheduled my flight and I was on my way to West coast within hours! A staff member picked me up at the airport around midnight. During the first few days, caring medical staff watched over me. Since I spent some time in a hospital prior to my arrival, I chose not to detox at Desert Hope, but I have heard good feedback on that from other clients. Overall, the facility is absolutely astonishing, beautiful and spacious. My room looked luxurious, my bed was confortable and the bathroom was big. Because of great housekeeping service available for the clients, the facility was always clean and neat. The facility has a gym, art room, patios outside and even a musical room with a grand piano. I have been to various treatment centers, but the program has a unique and holistic perspective on every aspect of the disease called addiction. I would like to share my insight on their treatment and how it worked for me. First, DH cares about PHYSICAL well-being. My weight was 75lb upon starting my treatment and I was out of shape. The staff members set me up with a nutritional specialist and counselors that helped to look healthy and properly gain weight. I received useful suggestions on how to work out as well and I had an opportunity to apply them during my treatment. They had a personal trainer and yoga instructors. Furthermore, if you are a client that shows some progress, you can get a one hour massage. I personally utilized any opportunity to exercise as it made me feel much better. Of course, my body had to be medically examined and restored to its balanced state. The nurses were knowledgeable and doctors were professional. I was open to their suggestions about my further treatment and was very satisfied with medications they introduced me to during my treatment at DH. Second, the program at DH addresses PSYCOLOGICAL aspect of the disease. It helped me with my MENTAL illness and EMOTIONAL disturbance. I had both group and one-on-one sessions with counselors, behavioral therapists and psychiatrists. During individual sessions, I felt safe and welcomed; I was always honest and open about my problems, which made this session work for me tremendously well. I could finally concentrate on what’s most important to me - my inner self. I highly recommend participating in all groups because there was so much useful information I got out every time I attended one.

Part Two: Third, the program helped me to start growing SPIRITUALLY. Besides 12 Step program, you may try other approaches such as Smart Recovery, Rational Recovery, and others. DH also brings worship services and people from churches to the facility. For me, attending meetings, listening to the solution of people in recovery, sharing my experience and realizing similarities with my thinking, actions and emotions based on other personal stories. Lastly, there is a SOCIAL aspect of recovery. Before I was discharged, I made a decision to stay in Las Vegas. Caring case managers helped me to find a sober living house, introduced me to local people in recovery, assisted me with admission into Intensive Outpatient Program, familiarized me with the best recovery clubs and meetings in the area and even recommended me what doctors I could get referrals to. Also, if your family is willing to participate in your recovery, DH offers therapeutic programs, at least every month. It would be very beneficial for you to include important people in the treatment process.Finally, I would like to emphasize an important factor of such great success of any program at American Addiction Centers. The majority of people working there are also in recovery, and each and every one of them is evidence to the fact that addiction is a serious but TREATABLE disease. Personally, I have never felt so accepted and understood at any other treatment facility but Desert Hope. I highly recommend you calling their number so that you could find out what would be the best option for you or your loved ones. To sum up, the treatment at Desert Hope incorporated all aspects of my well-being by analyzing not just physical but nutritional, emotional, mental, social, environmental and spiritual values. They are extremely helpful in teaching me what lifestyle I should have in order to stay clean, healthy, strong and happy.At the end of my treatment at Desert Hope, I had faith, feeling of support, a solid plan for the nearest future and positive attitude upon whichever was coming next. The day I left the facility, I was no longer shaking, my skin and my body looked healthy, my thinking was less foggy, my mind was clear and I even could play my favorite Chopin’s nocturne nearly as well as I used to... 13 years ago.

Adelson Clinic For Drug Abuse
I have been a patient for about five years and when i began i was pregnant about seven months and the staff happily treated me with dignity and respect from the start. Yes there is required paperwork but what type of health clinic doesnt require paperwork? Then dealing with addiction its alot more than a broken bone. Every question asked is to HELP TREAT YOUTO THE BEST OF THEIR ABILITY. We all are at different stages in our life when we walk thru those doors shortly after i began treatment I was put on bedrest do to my pregnancy and Mrs. Linzy happy drove to my home by the North Las vegas airport to see I received my medication daily and also Dr Rucker kept in contact with my ob/gyn to ensure all was well. I had previously been to two other clinics that did not explain to me the effects on my brain that my addiction caused even how the methadone contributes to makeing you stable again...happy really. Not high or euphoric either. My counselour encouraged coming to groups to undetstand ourselves and to gain the tools to keep from relapseing.Our director and staff are professional curtious and give us chance after chance to get it right. They are helpful and COURTIOUS IN MANY WAYS. AS FAR AS PATIENT CONFIDENTIALALITY I HAVE NEVER NOR KNOWN ANYONE TO COMPLAIN ABOUT THEOR CONFIDENTIALITY BEING COMPRIMISSED.they have cameras all in and outside the building to ensure our confort and security. The Adelson clinic goes above and beyond the things they do for us.i am grateful for All the nurses like mrs Annie, Maria, security like James, mrs.Linzy our diretor ALL OUR COUNSLERS LIKE JIM AND KYRO, Dr Rucker, and Michelles welcoming face, Mrs.Nora, and the Adelson's heart to keep us going. Thats the real Adelson clinic!!!

American Addiction Center
I struggled with heroin addiction for almost ten years. I have been to a few rehabs in my active addiction but nothing compares to the respect and care I received at Desert Hope. The detox procedure was quick and pleasant. I was welcomed with open arms by the staff and at that point I knew I was in the right place. I loved the one-on-one meetings with my therapist and case manager. The staff truly work hard to make sure you get cared for. There's a five star chef cooking three meals a day!Desert Hope gave me all the tools necessary to live a life free of drugs. Because of this program and the suggestions I took from the staff, I am clean today. If you are living in active addiction and you want to get clean, I STRONGLY recommend calling American Addiction Centers today. Recovery is possible. I am living proof that this program works.

American Addiction Center
Desert Hope was a wonderful experience through and through. The facility as a whole is a beautiful one, and the staff is great. I received a great amount of personal attention and group therapy that was second to none. I was able to connect with a therapist individually and get closer to my peers in a group setting. I found that the 12 step meetings that would visit from the outside thoroughly helped me understand the importance of getting involved with the fellowship when I got out, two which I still attend regularly. The food is top of the line and the staff make the stay as comfortable as possible. I am deeply appreciative of Desert Hope for leading me in the right direction and opening my eyes to a life of sobriety, along with setting me up with the proper after care that made it possible for me to stay sober today.

Montevista Hospital
I came here for help and I got it!! I felt like the staff was genuinely concerned about me. Megan, Dave, the big Hawaiian guy, gladys, all made me feel so welcomed. And I told the head chef I would do this and describe his food.... The fact that the chef was concerned about the quality of food was impressive. And the food reflected that

Tips & Advices
If you don't have insurance, you may be able to find outpatient programs like Narcotics Anonymous that offer counseling and meetings for patients at no cost.
Some facilities accept health insurance like United Healthcare, BlueCross BlueShield, Cigna, Humana and Medicaid. Many carriers support in-state assessment, detox and outpatient treatment. Some also partially cover residential or inpatient treatment. Because drug addiction is considered a disease, major health insurance providers must treat it like any other chronic condition that requires medical treatment. Be sure to inquire about co-pays and deductibles so you don't receive a surprise bill months after you start a program.
Yes. Some treatment programs promote quick sobriety through seemingly impossible means, such as herbal supplements or religious affiliation. Be wary of questionable claims like, "Shake your drug addiction in one week!" If the advertising sounds too good to be true, the program could potentially be a scam. Instead, look for organizations that include approval and certification from real doctors and health care providers.
Yes. Attending a program that is specific to your drug of choice will make your treatment much more likely to be impactful and successful.  Some provide certain users with medications like Valium and Xanax to counteract symptoms of distress associated with alcohol or drug withdrawals. You may not want to attend such programs if you fear that you may instead become addicted to these substances.
Yes. A physician can determine how severe your addiction is, which will help you decide if you want to try inpatient or outpatient treatment. He or she can also consider any withstanding health issues such as psychiatric conditions that should be factored into your decision. Next, check out facilities and programs that offer treatment for the substances that you abuse.
