One of my favorite and most inspiring experiences here at Addiction Therapeutic Services (ATS) is the time spent with clients exploring the natural wonders in the Palm Springs area. When I get to be a part of the wonder, the connection, the awe that a client or clients shares when first introduced to the beauty of a desert mountain oasis with a natural waterfall, Big Horn sheep in their natural environment only 50 feet away or just being in nature for a brief time, I am always amazed at the connectivity experienced within the group. The labels of addict, depression, anxiety or whatever just seem to disappear.
Tahquitz Canyon, Murray Canyon, Thousand Palms Nature Preserve, White water Conservancy, Los Rios Rancho and The Santa Rosa Mountains Interpretive Center are just a few of the places we go to find simplicity and inner peace.

Peace is a condition of freedom from disturbance, whether outwardly, as of a nation from war or enemies or inwardly, as in the current context, within the soul. Peace implies health, well-being, and prosperity.
