Comfort and luxury are hallmarks of The Alexander, which is a unique alcohol and drug addiction treatment residence for adult women. Instead of taking a traditional 30-day approach to residential treatment, The Alexander offers women a long-term transitional plan that imposes greater accountability on each resident, and offers the opportunity for supported reintegration to society. Located just south of downtown Palm Springs in California, the intimate and exclusive home provides the perfect setting for long-term structured living.
