The gorgeous desert mountain setting is at the heart of the amenities offered at Gay Men’s Institute.
Gay Men’s Institute is focused on providing a relaxing and comfortable setting while you focus on your recovery. As a former gay-landmark boutique hotel adjacent to historic Palm Springs, California, we provide a serene and modern escape from the day-to-day challenges.


Our on-site chef will provide nutritious meals that can accommodate your dietary restrictions without compromising your spiritual, moral, or health-related needs. You’ll learn about healthy eating habits and how to adjust your diet for any medications you may be taking.

Live Comfortably

Gay Men’s Institute ensures a safe, gay affirmative setting for men of all ages, backgrounds, and ethnic origins, who identify as gay or bisexual. During treatment you will share living space with someone of the same gender expression, so you can feel at peace while focusing on your recovery.

Outpatient Services

If we recommend that you step down from residential treatment to our outpatient program, we can also provide you with housing services. This gradual step down meets as often 6 hours a day, 5 times a week to a few hours a day, 3 times a week. Transition to our outpatient program is easy as you will already be familiar with the area and some of the staff. The partial day program of IOP/PHP treatment allows for you to adjust to a life out of treatment and in recovery. You can continue in our outpatient program for just a few weeks or up to three months.
