Gay Men’s Institute knows you are unique, that’s why we personalize every treatment plan, using evidence-based treatments to treat addiction, trauma, and co-occurring disorders.

Medical Detox

Our team of medical professionals will supervise your detoxification process and ease you off substances while monitoring your vitals and preparing you for the next step in treatment.

Residential Treatment

Onsite housing at our historic location in Palm Springs with 24/7 access to clinical staff. Your unique treatment plan will include a schedule of individual therapy, group therapy, and experiential therapies like equine therapy, fitness programs, nutrition, and recreation.

Partial Hospitalization Program

For patients that do not require full-time residential treatment, we offer a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP). Partial Hospitalization allows for more independence and a gradual adjustment to your next step in recovery, either in outpatient care or returning home in recovery.

Evidence-based Treatment

There is no wasted time while in treatment at Gay Men’s Institute. Your personalized treatment includes one-on-one therapy, group therapy, and recovery activities, all scheduled to make each moment meaningful for you. Our therapies are proven to reduce relapse and promote long-term recovery.
