/About Painted Desert Recovery

Painted Desert Recovery is a 60-day residential program for women facing the challenges of trauma and addiction. Our team is composed of dynamic and passionate individuals who pride themselves in being trauma informed; of a greater value, is that the team at Painted Desert created a trauma responsive program where no detail was overlooked to provide a space where women feel safe and are treated with dignity

The team at Painted Desert Recovery created a program that responds to the specific needs of women diagnosed with substance abuse, addictive behaviors and trauma by offering gender-responsive treatment. Studies show women respond more positively and honestly in gender-specific settings. In this safe and nurturing environment, a woman can begin to love herself as she learns to trust others.

Who Is the Painted Desert Woman?

She is fierce. She is deserving, and she belongs. While she may walk through the doors of Painted Desert feeling less than, we see her. We hear her, and she will begin to trust that others accept her. She will find that she found her way to a place where she is safe. A space where she and other women in their journey towards healing are empowered by their inherent worth and value; a place where she comes to know true belonging.
