Our clinicians take an academic approach to treating addiction. Each session is designed to build specific skills and intentional strategies to help people heal.

A few examples include:

Medical Detox Program

CeDAR’s medical withdrawal and assessment program makes detox manageable for our patients. This clinical program offers the highest levels of compassionate and professional care, psychiatric evaluation, and respectful medical supervision. If your fear of withdrawal is preventing you from living a full life, CeDAR’s medical detoxification program can help you detox safely and transition into treatment.

Process Groups

Group counseling is an integral part of any good addiction treatment facility. This is a setting in which you can learn from others who have experienced similar situations while building connections and opening up about your personal struggles. In many cases, our patients build friendships that last a lifetime during process group therapy.

Individual Therapy Programs

Many people find it difficult to open up in large groups. Individual therapy offers a safe, open environment where you and your therapist will work through the issues that have been holding you back. CeDAR is home to some of the best addiction therapists in Denver, and their clinical, compassionate, welcoming approach encourages health, healing, and growth.

Family Systems Therapy

Family therapy is a key therapeutic protocol at all of the best addiction treatment centers in Denver and across the country. In this program, your family learns the truth about your addiction and how to best support your recovery.
