Partial Hospitalization Program – Phase I
Our partial hospitalization program (PHP) meets five days a week. Programming primarily consists of group therapy in intimate groups of 12 people or fewer. Patients return home after programming. Alternatively, those who are eligible can utilize our sober living facility off-campus. PHP programming offers a more structured treatment program. Therefore, it can be helpful for those who have recently completed residential substance use treatment or who would benefit from more intensive treatment. PHP focuses on preparing the client to transition to an intensive outpatient program and the eventual return to work or other life responsibilities.
In this level of care, a client continues to live at home or in our supportive living home located just steps from our treatment center but participates in group and individual sessions at the treatment center.

Outpatient – Phase III
Palo Verde Wellness offers outpatient programs, referred to as Phase III. It consists of one and a half hours per week of clinical treatment hours. This is designed with a client-centered approach that begins the process of giving a person more responsibility through increased independence. Clients see a therapist or counselor once a week for one hour or attend one and a half hours of groups that are geared towards each person becoming proactive in their recovery effort.

These therapies can help support the healing process by allowing people to explore their emotions and sensations in a safe environment and learn how to cope with them in a healthy way. We offer a range of experiential therapies, such as:
- Nutritional education
- Life/social skills training
Healing the Soul – Connection
Recovery is not just about abstaining from drugs and alcohol; it’s also about finding a new way to live. A big part of that is developing a support system and connections with other people who are on the same journey. We offer treatments such as:
- Sound bath
- Conscious recovery
- School of recovery
- The four agreements
- Meditation and mindfulness
- Spiritual exploration group
We also offer wellness coaching sessions sessions. These sessions can help you to develop skills you can utlize outside of treatment to stay healthy and maintain your sobriety.
