Introduction and Basic Services

Located in the city of Banning, which is about 20 miles west of Palm Springs, California, the California Highlands Addiction Treatment facility is set on 40 private acres of incredible California desert. The organization was founded in 2015 by Paul Del Vacchio, a businessman with a finance background, who is also in recovery from gambling addiction. The motto at California Highlands is “Treatment delivered with dignity and respect.” The organization offers detox and residential treatment for those struggling with substance abuse, process addictions and compulsive behavior. The program offered at California Highlands gives daily focus on mental health education for all residents.

Facility and Meals

The facility is based in a very modern, high-end home with a luxurious air. With sculptural outdoor grounds that are surrounded by exceptional landscaping, California Highlands offers an impeccably designed and peaceful space for recovery.

All bedrooms house two people, and the house has a sixteen-person capacity, with eight rooms for each gender. The bedrooms are spacious with large beds, TVs and a comfortable, homey feel. Bathrooms are particularly stunning; one en-suite, for example, has a shower furnished with plants that look like they belong in Better Homes and Gardens.

The facility features a fitness center with a TV and a lounge area. There is a game room with a pool table, as well as plenty of space for outdoor exercise for those looking to be active. Also available is a bright, lime-colored business area with a phone (cell phones are prohibited during treatment) and desks at which to work. The dining area overlooks the backyard’s pool, with a view of the outdoor shaded lounge area. A private chef and her assistant prepares healthy meals and snacks for clients.

Treatment Protocol and Team

The core program is designed to last 45 days, though California Highlands does offer the option for stays of 30 or 60 days, depending on the individual. Detox is available if necessary; it is supervised in case of medical emergencies and uses supportive care and natural pain management techniques including yoga, mindfulness and meditation. The process can last anywhere for a few hours to over a week depending on the individual.

The residential program is specialized for each client, recognizing that individuals can have widely varying needs. A number of different activities and group and individual therapies are available, including mental health education, relapse prevention and daily goal setting groups. Treatment is based around a number of different therapies but includes CBT, DBT, daily goal setting, meditation, process groups, coping skills education and practice, motivational interviewing, mindfulness training and specialty groups.

A typical day starts with breakfast from 6 to 7 am, followed by individual or group therapy from 8 to 9 am. From 9 to 10 am clients undergo mindfulness meditation as well as a treatment planning group, with a weekend planning group on Fridays and personal spiritual time on Sundays from 9 am to noon. On weekdays there is a mental health education group from 10 am to 11 and a process group from 11 am until noon.

Lunch is from noon to 1 pm, after which clients participate in two group sessions from 1 to 3 pm (with mindfulness practice and recreational activities on weekends). Mindfulness and meditation run from 3 to 4 pm on weekdays, except for Fridays and weekends when there is recreational activity or personal time. Personal time on weekdays and Saturdays is from 4 to 4:30 pm, though on Sundays this period of time is spent going to the store or market for shopping. Exercise and time at the gym goes from 4:30 to 6 pm, followed by dinner from 6 to 7 pm, then relaxation prep for bed from 7 to 8 pm.

The 18-person treatment staff includes a medical doctor, an LMFT, MFT interns, Master’s-level therapists, bio-medical supervisors and technicians, LVNs and medical assistants. Clients can also visit with psychiatrists if necessary.

Aftercare involves long-term counseling, support groups, alumni programs and possibly moving on to stay at an outside sober living or outpatient facility. 


With a fantastic facility and high staff-to-client ratio, the California Highlands Addiction Treatment facility is a great choice in the Palm Springs area. For those looking to detox and rehabilitate in a luxurious and private environment, this is an excellent choice.
