Individualized treatment for every client

Desert Star offers outpatient and intensive outpatient treatment programs for people affected by addiction, whether that addiction is to drugs, alcohol, sex, or gambling.Family, group, and individual sessions are available. Our goal is to help each person understand their addiction cycle and learn new skills to live a healthy, productive, and sober life.
Desert Star uses evidenced-based and practiced-based treatment. This includes combining traditional addiction therapy with treatment for mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, grief, loss, or trauma. Treating a person’s mental health along with their substance use increases the chances that the person will recover from both. As part of this treatment process, medications may be suggested. Although no medications can cure dependence on drugs or alcohol, some medications do help people stay abstinent and improve the quality of their life.

Other elements of Desert Star’s holistic approach includes nutritional education, discussion of vitamin supplements, and auricular acupuncture as needed.
