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

  • Life Skills

    Often, when a person begins suffering from their addiction at an early age, or when drug or alcohol abuse continues for extended periods of time, skills necessary for going through daily life are never learned or quickly forgotten. At Ken Seeley Communities, we offer access to programs to help those in recovery learn or re-learn skills to help them re-emerge into the ‘real world’ with the confidence that they can function as an independent, productive individual.

Set in a quiet, upscale neighborhood in Palm Springs, Calif., The Palm Tee is one of three sober living facilities operated by Ken Seeley Communities. This long-term sober living environment serves individuals struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring mental health disorders.

According to its website, this transitional living space offers “a drug and alcohol-free setting where newly acquired recovery skills can be practiced and reinforced.” Within the state, the Palm Tee is among 13.9 percent of substance abuse treatment facilities accredited by The Joint Commission and among 54.9 percent with programs for clients with co-occurring disorders.

Ken Seeley Communities also owns The Alexander and Tuscany Manor. The facility's website notes that it provides medically supervised detoxification and outpatient treatment, though it is unclear if these services are available at all locations.


The Palm Tee, operated by Ken Seeley Communities, is a sober living community. Staff members will work with clients to develop a five-year recovery plan. Clients can expect to participate in individual and group therapy as well as experiential therapies.

Clients also participate in 12-step recovery group meetings, addiction education and relapse prevention planning classes, and recreation and fitness activities. Medication management is also available to residents struggling with co-occurring mental health disorders. Residents are subject to drug and alcohol screenings.


The founder is a well-known addiction specialist. According to the organization’s website, clients “receive leading help from experienced treatment professionals and support staff.”


Described on its website as being set in a “charming mid-century hotel,” the Palm Tee offers scenic views in villas complete with private and shared bedrooms, shared living spaces, and fully equipped kitchens. Clients can enjoy a large pool and outdoor patio and have access to washers and dryers, satellite TV, and the internet. The facility offers a pet friendly environment to those who qualify to bring their pet to treatment for therapeutic purposes.


At the time of this writing, two former clients submitted conflicting impressions to Rehabs.com about Ken Seeley Communities - the Palm Tee. The positive reviewer, who appreciated the program and the results achieved in treatment, wrote: “I cannot stress how grateful I am to begin a new life. I am 33 days sober for the first time in 46 years.” The former alum explained that he was so distressed before entering the facility that “I was going to take my life.” This individual has rebounded and recovered with the help of the center and “I would give them a 10!”

The other reviewer offered a harsh critique of the facility and its practices, starting with “I have never seen a more disorganized treatment facility.” This alum accused the center of misrepresenting the facility. “All of the pictures on the KSC website are fake! Amenities are very dirty. Outside Furniture is filthy.” The reviewer also discredited the staff and namesake of the center: “ Nobody (staff) have no idea what the other is doing. KEN SEELEY HASN'T VISITED in I don't know when! Very disappointing!”

On secondary sites to date, Ken Seeley Communities in general garnered highly favorable feedback: 4.2 out of five stars based on 13 reviews on Google; two five-star ratings and a four-star rating on Yelp; and 4.3 out of five stars based on 41 reviews on Facebook, which the organization can manage.

Reviewers (alumni, loved ones, staff, unidentified) praised the life-changing results they achieved, many after previous failed attempts at recovery. They also commended the staff and how they addressed clients’ needs, expressed by five-star reviewer Kevin on Google as: “The people that work here are caring and compassionate, they really help patients both medically and emotionally. The program is equipped to meet the expectations and needs of each individual’s specific needs.”


At the time of this writing, Ken Seeley Communities accepts most private insurance plans, including Aetna, BlueCross BlueShield, Cigna, and most PPO insurance plans. Within the state, the facility is among 56 percent of substance abuse treatment facilities that accept private health insurance.
