Intensive Residential Treatment (IRT)
31-Day Intensive Residential Treatment at CeDAR includes innovative programs such as Medically Managed Detox, Trauma-Informed Care, Fitness & Nutrition, Co-Occurring Mental Health Assessment, Spiritual Care, Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT), Family Services and Recovery Coaching.
Residential Treatment at CeDAR is gender-responsive and there are separate residences, groups, and activities for men and women. As part of the University of Colorado Hospital, we are a tobacco-free campus offering medically managed options for tobacco cessation. Research evidence shows this is beneficial for long-term recovery from addiction.
Keeping a connection to recovery support systems is essential for long-term recovery. To help our clients see their progress over time we will begin providing regular online assessments in early 2018. We'll reach out at regular intervals both during and after Residential Treatment to offer access to these assessments during the first year of recovery.
