CeDAR’s facilities include 50 Primary Residential beds (25 men / 25 women) for patients 18 and over, and 28 (14 men / 14 women) Residential Extended Care beds for patients 28 and over. In addition, specialized programs are offered for elite athletes and medication professionals.
The demand for CeDAR’s services is growing and capital funds are needed for:
Residential Cottages - $5,000,000
CeDAR’s residential cottages, particularly the men’s are chronically full and other constituencies needing specialized care have emerged, i.e. emerging adults and seniors. The older population in particular is growing; both have special generational differences and requirements for treatment.
Outpatient Treatment and Integrated Behavioral Health Services - $3,000,000
Currently, Specialty addiction outpatient services are provided on campus at CeDAR’s dedicated facility. The essential services need to:
- Expand to sites off-campus and along Colorado’s I-35 corridor
• Be embedded and integrated within the University Hospital primary care and inpatient departments
• Be integrated throughout the UCH System
Outpatient services are also envisioned at satellite locations across the Denver metro area and Front Range. Access for patients is the primary driver of this need. More people will be served through an integrated approach, consistent with the management of other chronic conditions. This helps meet two important tenets of the Center of Excellence model: easy access and integration.
Digital Platform for Recovery Management - $2,000,000
As with any chronic illness, early intervention, effective care, and managing follow-up recovery on a daily basis are critical to improved health, wellness, and overall function, Tele-health and other digital technologies are essential parts of the Center of Excellence strategy.
A multi-dimensional digital platform, now in the development phase, will distinguish CeDAR by revolutionizing the way patients stay connected to their care, manage their recovery process, and engage them and their families directly in their ongoing care.
The platform will provide a full suite of applications and content designed to meet each patient’s needs in the “gap” between episodes of care, when most struggle. Biometric technology and individualized monitoring devices of stress, sleep, specimen testing results, as well as meetings, coaching, and follow-up support. These programs, which use engagement science to keep patients on-track, will revolutionize chronic care management and greatly improve recovery outcomes.
The Digital Platform for Recovery Management will become a sustainable business model for CeDAR to expand its footprint and establish itself as a leader in the digital recovery support space.
