About Us

When someone takes the courageous first step of accepting help for an addiction, we want to meet that person right where they are and lay out a path for them to achieve a fulfilling life in recovery. Not only does the substance abuse need to stop, underlying issues need to be processed and any co-occurring diagnoses need to be managed for the person to truly thrive in sobriety.

Treatment Programming Should Not be ‘One Size Fits All’

Everyone who comes to Pacifica Recovery has a unique background and perspective and that’s why we believe that treatment programming should not be ‘one size fits all.’ Our admissions assessment will take into account many aspects of the admitting client’s personal history so that we can create a treatment schedule that is holistic in nature. We carefully weigh:

  • History of substance use (and treatment)
  • Family history
  • Social history
  • Personal goals and beliefs
  • Any related diagnoses that might be interwoven with the addiction (i.e. anxiety, trauma, depression)

Intimate, Caring, and Effective

Our low bed count and high staff to client ratio allows us to provide highly supervised treatment and closely monitor each client’s progress so that we can make adjustments based on their progress or any other developments in their recovery.

Our serene location in Palm Springs is ideal for our clients to take the time to address personal issues, make breakthroughs, and implement new behaviors without the distractions and stress of normal life.

The Entire Continuum of Care in a Vibrant Recovery Community

Pacifica Recovery provides the entire continuum of care from detoxification to outpatient treatment. Our clients frequently stay in the Palm Springs area to continue working with our clinical team via outpatient or ‘day treatment’ while residing at home or in a sober living environment nearby. Palm Springs is an excellent place to spend your first year of recovery for a variety of reasons, including incredible weather, and an uplifting recovery community with lots of educational and employment opportunities.


Pacifica Recovery offers hypnotherapy as a tool for treatment. Our trained clinical hypnotherapist will help guide patients to tap into their subconscious mind and their truth within. This heightens the patient’s awareness and reveals information that might be triggering his/her addiction. Hypnosis allows a person to unconsciously explore and better understand their underlying motivations which can help lead to better recovery results.

EMDR Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing

Pacifica Recovery also offers EMDR therapy to our patients. EMDR is the gold standard for PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and trauma therapy techniques. EMDR is a treatment approach for past trauma that is causing problems in your present daily life. Change occurs as a result of reprocessing and altering past memories that have been causing recurring painful feelings in the present and often trigger addiction. This shame and hopelessness causes a revolving door for relapse. The ultimate goal for our program is to help you develop a positive sense of self and a life that has meaning – A life worth staying clean and sober for.
