Our Treatment Process
At CeDAR, our multi-disciplinary staff completes a separate full day assessment/evaluation upon admission before an individual is moved to the residential or primary care setting. This assessment may indicate the patient meets criteria for medically monitored or managed withdrawal from substances.
The average patient may spend one to three days in the Comprehensive Detoxification program before being placed in primary care. Because addiction and mental health disorders often exist together, the Assessment also enables us to identify and better meet these needs as well.
The assessment and detoxification components help CeDAR determine the appropriate levels of treatment that staff will use to design an individual behavioral care plan specific to the patient’s needs. This integrated approach involves an addiction-certified physician as well as addiction psychiatrists (three on staff) to address any co-occurring mental health or physical disorder.
Other members of the multi-disciplinary staff working on the assessment include addiction case managers, behavioral health care specialists, family therapists, spiritual care professionals and nurses. All work together as the individual moves from the assessment through detoxification (if clinically indicated) to the primary care setting.
