CeDAR, the Center for Addiction, Dependency and Rehabilitation is Colorado’s premier residential and outpatient treatment center for substance abuse. As part of the University of Colorado Hospital, they’re considered the most qualified facility to treat addiction-related medical and psychological conditions.
They offer addiction treatment programs for people 18 years and older. CeDAR’s mission is not to only help people conquer addiction but to improve their quality of life by helping them build a solid foundation for long-term sobriety.
CeDAR programs are designed for every level of drug and alcohol treatment including 10-Day Medically Supervised Withdrawal and Assessment Program, 30-Day Intensive Residential Treatment, 60 to 90-Day Residential Extended Care, Professionals Program, Intensive Outpatient Programs, Recovery Management, and Family Program.
Susan Dearing-Bond, CeDAR’s Executive Director says, “Addiction treatment isn’t one-size-fits-all. From day-one in detox to long-term coaching, we offer a full range of treatment options so that anyone at any time can get the care that matches their stage of recovery.”
Quitting prolonged use of drugs and alcohol can create serious medical conditions like heart problems, seizures, and even death. CeDAR’s Medically Supervised Withdrawal and Assessment Program (SWAP) is designed to ensure safety when stopping the use of substances including opioids, alcohol, benzodiazepines and other drugs.
Residential treatment at CeDAR offers an inpatient environment where people can focus exclusively on recovery. In addition to individual counseling, a team of experts is assembled to include addiction-certified internal medicine physicians, specialized addiction psychiatrists, addiction case managers, behavioral health doctors, family therapists, spiritual care professionals, certified addiction nurses, and other qualified specialists. “Our credentialed, multi-disciplinary team is what sets CeDAR apart from a typical rehab. This is hospital-level care.”
CeDAR offers a specific treatment program for licensed professionals including doctors, lawyers, pilots, and others whose license becomes jeopardized by drug and alcohol use. Residential treatment significantly increases a professional’s chance to achieve lasting recovery, and maintain their profession. Issues related to stigma, accountability, and return-to-work planning are incorporated into an individualized treatment plan.
Outpatient programs at CeDAR are for those transitioning from residential treatment, or for anyone needing ongoing support for long-term recovery. CeDAR’s Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is best known for teaching essential early recovery concepts, skill-building, addiction and recovery education, relapse prevention, mental health care and family engagement. Continuing structured recovery in tandem with normal life functions has shown to be vital for achieving long-term sobriety. “Practical limitations can be obstacles to residential treatment. We get that. It doesn’t mean there are no other options, though. We help people fit outpatient treatment into their daily lives.”
Recovery Management is the most recent innovation at CeDAR and includes Recovery Coaching. This service is specifically designed to continue sobriety in everyday life. Research evidence shows that the longer a person stays connected to recovery-oriented environments, the better chance they have for maintaining sobriety. Recovery coaches are peers in recovery who provide not only guidance, but also act as role models for successful recovery from addiction.
Since addiction is a disease that affects the entire family, CeDAR has a Family Program to provide education and support for any family members who have a loved one struggling with substance abuse. Family members can learn about the science of addiction, principles of recovery, and the complex struggle with co-dependency, enabling and boundaries. Most importantly, they find out how to take care of themselves. “This one of the most vital services offered at CeDAR. Multiple family members can be affected by one person’s addiction. We want families to get the help they need, just like their addicted loved one.”
