Cedar Point Recovery in Sacramento is a relatively new facility just over a year old and a branch of the larger company Advanced Health and Education headquartered in New Jersey. All Advanced Health’s facilities treat adult men and women recovering from drug and alcohol abuse with Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP), Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) and basic outpatient—in descending order by intensity.
Accommodations and Food
Through an agreement with the Marriott hotel chain, clients at the New Jersey and Sacramento AHE facilities sleep in local hotels. Cedar Point accommodates up to 28 men and women at a time, although typically occupancy is 25 clients. There are eight housed per building, each gender-specific with small apartments. All clients share double-occupancy rooms with twin beds unless the facility is not completely full, in which case some may get their own rooms.
The apartments have kitchens with supplies where clients can cook if they so choose. Because residents stay at a hotel, breakfast and dinner are often prepared for clients. Each client receives a $75 per week allowance to put towards groceries for the apartment. The benefit of staying at a Marriott is that although the building is mainly staffed and supervised by the Cedar Point staff, Marriott maintenance staff still clean the rooms and take care of laundry.
After an initial 10 day blackout period, clients can use their phones. Phones are not allowed during treatment hours at any point.
Treatment and Staff
Clients at Cedar Point typically receive treatment for 30 to 90 days. Whether in PHP, IOP or outpatient, each is assigned a counselor for individual therapy. Therapists also help clients create prevention strategies to avoid relapse following treatment.
Therapists also facilitate family and group therapy. There are no set times for family visitation and therapy, as everything is arranged through each client’s therapist. For the majority of each day clients are in group sessions, which begin at 9 am and wrap up mid-afternoon. Groups offer peer support and while most are co-ed, some are gender-specific to allow men and women time to discuss gender-specific issues. Cedar Point is supportive of 12-step principles and encourages clients to continue work the program upon leaving treatment. Apart from group and individual therapy, clients are given the option to participate in alternative therapies including massage, yoga and acupuncture at no extra cost.
All staff at Cedar Point are credentialed in psychology or addiction studies and are predominantly female. The Executive Director of Cedar Point is a CADC and is a Master’s-level clinical psychologist with a specialty in addiction. The Clinical Director is an MFT and the Program Coordinator is also a CADC. There are also certified case managers and the primary therapist on-site has a Master’s degree and experience working with military, women and young families.
Cedar Point recommends on-going monitoring services and sober living for each clients’ continued care following treatment and helps facilitate these arrangements. The facility does not accept Medicaid or Medicare but works with most insurance companies.
Cedar Point Recovery is not a long-term program, but their thorough treatment program does well to set clients up for long-term recovery. Potential PHP clients who like the idea of receiving treatment in one place while residing in a home-like environment may prefer this facility over a more traditional inpatient program.
