Treatment Approach

Evidence-Based Treatment

Desert Hope offers its patients a full continuum of care from detox to inpatient care, outpatient treatment and recovery residences at Resolutions Las Vegas which all utilize evidence-based treatments proven to improve outcomes for patients.

We offer individual and group therapy in all our programs with individual sessions customized for your unique needs and group sessions allowing you to interact with other peers to discuss common challenges you may face in recovery.

Treatment Modalities and Specialized Groups

We offer a wide range of therapies such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), the Matrix Model, and dialectal behavioral therapy (DBT) that are based on your assigned level of care, co-occurring mental health disorders, and aftercare plan.

In addition, we provide specialized groups for patients who face their own unique challenges in recovery from alcoholism. We offer tracks for first responders, veterans, gender-specific groups, LGBTQ+ and trauma-focused therapies.


Our hotel-style rooms are equipped for two people and come with full-sized beds, private bathrooms, and housekeeping services. We also have separate floors for men and women and patients can request a private room for an additional fee.

Our amenities include an indoor fitness center, onsite laundry facilities, outdoor fitness activities, art and music rooms, library, and relaxing outdoor patios where you can read, journal or nap against the sound of the soothing fountains.
