Our mission is to give the men and women who come to us for treatment the absolute best possible chance at achieving long-term recovery. In order to accomplish this, we will employ a variety of therapeutic processes that we facilitate in a serene and comfortable residential setting in Palm Springs, California.
Our goal is to not only help our clients stop the substance abuse, but also to show them how to really thrive in recovery, because this is what will make their sobriety last. Many of our staff have had their lives touched by addiction and we take offering a caring and supporting environment very seriously, as we believe that everyone has a right to recovery.
Ascension can provide for a safe & comfortable detoxification for any substance. We prioritize both comfort and safety and can arrange for psychiatric assistance with a variety of medications to make the detoxification process as smooth as possible.
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.
For the client who has progressed in their recovery to the point that they have returned home, or moved into one of our transitional living areas, and still wish to participate in treatment activities and receive the support of our clinical staff, we offer an Intensive Outpatient (IOP) program and a Day Treatment program.
Ascension has its own sober living programs that provide a residence for those who are participating in, or matriculating from, clinical treatment.
Most treatment services are geared towards younger adults ranging in age from 18-24. However, Ascension is the only treatment program geared specifically for mature adults. These adults face different challenges in comparison to younger adults. They have a wide array of stressors and responsibilities that young adults do not contend with in their lives. These factors often make it difficult for them to have productive and successful treatment when mixed with young adults. Mature adults are motivated and driven in their own way and need to be around people who feel the same. We have created an atmosphere where they can obtain treatment while being able to relate to and seek support from their peers.
Ascension provides the entire continuum of care from detoxification to outpatient treatment. Every client will be given a thorough assessment that will take into account their history of substance abuse, treatment history, family history, and medical history. Our clinicians will use all of this information to create a personalized treatment regimen that will employ a variety of evidence based practices that the man or woman will best respond to.
We offer both insurance options, as well as cash payments. Ascension Treatment Centers believes in providing affordable treatment for mature adults who are seeking to improve their lives by recovering from a substance addiction. Our primary focus is on effective clinical care and addressing substance abuse, as well as the underlying emotional issues that are often present.
The Ascension Treatment Centers has been a wonderful place of comfort, professionalism, and a new start in life. I enjoyed every moment spent in treatment, and will forever remember the people who helped me overcome my addiction and move forward in life.
A wonderful team of people who really care for the well-being and recovery of everyone inside Ascension. The accommodation was very comfortable, and I especially loved the outside activities like hiking, which helped to clear my mind and look forward to the exercise.
I came in looking for a safe place where I could find treatment and recover. I was surrounded by loving and supportive people, who knew how to bring out the best in me. Ascension is a beautiful facility and I loved every day that I spent with them.
