Desert Hills Behavioral Health is an alcohol and drug addiction treatment facility that is located at 5310 Sequoia Road NW in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Treating substance abuse involves multiple stages of treatment through a recovery program such as that offered by Desert Hills Behavioral Health. This can include group counseling, individual counseling, outpatient treatment, inpatient treatment, and medically assisted detox, among many others. Treatment programs are based on the individual themselves and are constructed to suit each patient individually. Just as every person is unique, so should treatment programs and that is exactly what patients will receive at Desert Hills Behavioral Health.
If addicts do not obtain the right type of support and guidance, they may find treatment to be very difficult as the thought of sobriety can seem so far-fetched. At Desert Hills Behavioral Health, professional counseling and guidance are provided to all patients aged Adolescents, giving them the strength needed in order to obtain a life that is free of drug and alcohol addiction. By altering the patient's outlook on life through addiction treatment, they will be able to stay positive throughout the duration of rehab.
The staff members at Desert Hills Behavioral Health have a mission and that is to give patients effective and quality addiction treatment so that long-lasting sobriety can be obtained. The path to a positive future starts on a positive foot and that begins at Desert Hills Behavioral Health. Confronting addiction is a difficult thing to do, but it is the most important step in the recovery process. Through professional counseling during the patient's time in treatment, patients will learn coping skills and trigger management which is imperative to the success of maintaining sobriety.
Maintaining sobriety on one's own is extremely difficult, especially when the addict has tried to go 'cold turkey' on their own. This is because it requires medically-assisted detox in order to properly and safely wean the body off of the substance of abuse. This way the body does not go through sudden withdrawal nor experience harsh side effects. Desert Hills Behavioral Health can provide patients with all of the necessary tools, treatments, and resources so that patients have every opportunity to succeed in recovery.

I've been in the Behavioral Health field for over 7 years. This facility has some of the best staff and programming I've ever seen. They are dedicated to the community and children it serves, and I'm proud to be a part of their team!!

i was in the RTC for 4 months and i was in pretty bad shape when i got their i did not like listening to the staff got in a lot of fights but after a few months a got a lot better and now i have been out of desert hills for almost a year. their was a lot of staff that helped me but the one that helped me most was the sycamore therapist Yvonne. she is not the sycamore therapist anymore but she is the one who helped the the most
I have mixed emotions about my experience here but one person who helped me the most was Yvonne Nunez (Therapist) She was extremely knowledgeable in all kinds of trauma and different things I was dealing with in life. She helped me fix relationships with my family. She was extremely kind and understanding and patient. I had been in therapy most of my life and I can happily say I made the most progress with her. I loved how individualized my treatment plan was and I loved how if something we were trying wasn't working there were multiple other approaches we could take. It was so nice knowing I had someone who genuinely cared and didnt give up on me. Definitely most amazing person I worked with at Desert Hills.

Our 17 year old daughter discharged a few weeks ago. She had several challenges going in to the program. We had previously used a wilderness therapy program with little to no success. Per a recommendation of an educational consultant, we contacted Desert Hills. We toured and talked to several places around the country before deciding on Desert Hills. I would say we were 90% satisfied with everything that happened while she was there. When you have that many (maybe 8-10) emotionally challenged teenagers in a unit, things are bound to happen. If you go into a program like this expecting perfection, you will be sadly disappointed. What we liked most about the program was her therapist Yvonne. Our daughter truly bonded with her and had a great working relationship with her. They kept us informed about any problems that arose very quickly, yes even in the middle of the night, because of a time difference. The billing and travel arranging staff were always helpful. We were able to visit at least once a month and take her out for a day on pass. She was also able to call home almost every night. Her stay was approximately 4 months. We see lots of positive changed in her ability to deal with her personal issues. As I stated before, if you think you are going to get a perfect child back, think again. Our daughter, because of her bonding with Yvonne, had a positive outcome because she wanted it. Not because she was forced to. Some of the negatives include daily unit staff being sometimes ill equipped to deal with unruly teenagers. (although I would not want there job) Lack of time off the units to get out into the community to relieve boredom and stress was sometimes an issue. Our daughter gained weight as a result. Also, on the day of admission, no one was clearly in charge of taking parent on a tour of the facility and explaining who the contacts were for each department. Overall it was a positive experience and but the residents will only get out of the program what they are willing to receive.
My experience here at Desert Hills really helped me. Staff here are helpful toward client's treatment. This place was a great facility for me. I knew the moment I walked in. Desert Hills is nice and organized. I felt very positive about this place and did what I had to do. Desert Hills is the place where I would go to help sort my life and discharge successfully and begin on the right path in my life.
Desert Hills was a God send for my granddaughter. The staff of her unit provided her with the tools to become a functional teenager. Her therapist was exceptional. It is a difficult task to transition a person back to highschool life. They did a great job. No it is not perfect. There are a lot of challenges. They handled them well. The calling is hard to connect to your adolescent but when you handle that many callers it is tough. Thanks again for everything you have done for us.
I think it's a good place for kids that need the help
I was able to think over the years, and actually after all, they were a pretty good place! Ya I dealt with some nasty things there, but it got me into a better living and helped me understand, that knowing I should live and not die over stupid things! Depending on who you are sending/what you are sending your children there for, it's considered to be a good way to teach/have your children understand, not to do crappy things in life!! After I've gotten out of there, I've noticed a brighter future!! I've (even though it hasn't happened to me yet). I know that I myself will have a better life to understand and to enjoy!
