Your First 24 Hours at Desert Hope

When you first arrive at Desert Hope, you will be welcomed by our administrative staff, who will notify our treatment team of your arrival.

You will then be introduced to your therapist and case manager. They will sit down with you to review our policies and procedures, and answer any questions you may have about the facility and your treatment.

Next, you will undergo a medical and psychiatric evaluation so we work with you to create a customized care plan that takes your unique situation and goals into consideration.* You may also be asked to undergo a drug screening so we can assess your immediate medical care and detox needs.

Following the intake process, you will be shown to your room and given a tour of the facility. For the first 24 hours, you will be included in a routine safety check and your vitals will be closely monitored by our medical team. It is possible that you’ll begin therapy sessions during your first day,  though this will be based on your current medical condition.

* In some instances, the psychiatric evaluation may take place on your second day at Desert Hope.

What to Bring with You

We want you to feel as comfortable as possible during your recovery. We encourage bringing:

  • Weather-appropriate clothes, including sweaters and pullovers to wear in cooler temperatures. NOTE: While it gets very hot in Las Vegas during the summer months, you will also be spending a considerable amount of time indoors in air conditioning during treatment sessions. Don’t overpack. We will have laundry facilities on-site for you to wash your clothing.
  • Books. We encourage you to bring reading material that is not harmful to your recovery efforts.
  • Any prescription medications you are taking for other medical and health conditions. Please make sure your medications are in their original prescription bottles so we can properly screen them at the time of your intake.

You may bring cell phones and laptops. However, please note that we discourage bringing items of great value since we are not responsible for items that are lost or stolen during your stay.

You will have access to a locked drawer in your room where you can store your personal belongings. We also have lock boxes accessible only by staff members for you to store items of high value, such as jewelry.

What NOT to Bring

On the day you begin inpatient or residential treatment, our staff members will look over your belongings to make sure they are safe and appropriate to bring into the treatment center. Please do not bring:

  • Weapons.
  • Illicit drugs.
  • Alcohol.
  • Grooming products that contain alcohol (cologne, mouthwash, etc.).
  • Revealing clothing (such as tops that bare the midriff).

If you are not sure what you can bring to our facility, please contact us before your arrival so we can confirm whether or not the item is allowed on the premises.

A Typical Day at Desert Hope

The exact structure of a day in treatment will vary depending on your level of care. In medical detox, you will be monitored by our treatment team, who will intervene as needed for your safety and strive to alleviate your withdrawal symptoms.

For those in our residential program, PHP, or IOP, the days revolve around therapy sessions. PHPs offer a minimum of 6 hours of therapy per day (at least 5 days per week), while IOPs offer a minimum of 3 hours of therapy per day (at least three days per week).

We offer a range of different therapies including:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy.
  • Dialectical behavior therap.
  • Family therapy.
  • Individual and group counseling.
  • Alternative therapies, such as music, art, and equine therapy.

You may also participate in drug education classes and 12-step groups like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous.

You’ll receive 3 full gourmet meals per day, prepared by our on-site 4-start chef. These balanced and delicious meals will help you address nutritional deficits that commonly arise as a result of continued substance abuse and neglect of physical health. Our cafeteria is open during mealtimes and can accommodate those with special dietary needs.

Our Curriculum

In addition to our full schedule of individual and group therapy sessions, we use an interactive curriculum called Embracing Change: Recovery for Life. Patients can work on this curriculum on their own time at their own pace, as well as during group classes led by therapists.

Embracing Change: Recovery for Life is a series of workbooks that focus on substance use disorders and co-occurring disorders. Patients learn how to identify and overcome common triggers that lead to relapse, while also gaining the skills needed to manage and respond to stressful and uncomfortable situations. The workbooks included as part of this curriculum feature self-reflection exercises, therapy practices, and journaling assignments as well as information about recovery, aftercare, and the 12 steps.
