Center for Dependency, Addiction and Rehabilitation provides treatment for addiction and related mental health disorders. The most helpful thing we do is educate everyone affected by addiction – addicts, family members and industry professionals. During the past two years, CeDAR has developed an online library of over 100 educational articles.
Susan Dearing-Bond, Senior Director at CeDAR, says, “Our goal is to empower people to make informed choices for treatment and recovery. We want the community to have a quality online resource to use whenever they need it.”
