All the tools you need to feel better, get better, and stay better

Our Approach

Cedar recovery takes a whole-person approach to treating opioid addiction, which includes creating individualized treatment plans. An individualized treatment plan takes into account all the factors of the individual struggling with addiction. Using information about the individual, we develop a plan for success that addresses the needs that lie beneath the surface of addiction. Our evidence-based approach uses a combination of medication and therapy to improve outcomes and give our patients the best chance at long-term recovery.

Frequently Asked Questions

You may be asking…

Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) combines the use of medications like Suboxone (buprenorphine) with behavioral therapies to overcome opioid use disorder.

Suboxone (buprenorphine) works by blocking the receptors in the brain that crave opioids, without activating these receptors to create a “high.” Blocking opioid receptors reduces or eliminates cravings for opioids. If drugs like heroin or prescription pain pills are used, the opioid receptors are blocked, so these drugs will not give off the “high” either.

We’re here to help our patients navigate recovery. We meet with each patient to evaluate their needs and help them find resources for food, housing, employment, financial support, and more.

Researchers suggest that combining medication and behavioral therapy is more effective in treating opioid use disorder than utilizing each modality as a standalone treatment approach. Cedar Recovery therapists are specialized in Medication-Assisted Treatment and provide a compassionate approach while working with individuals and families to learn tools of recovery.

Yes, our program requires participation in therapy. Medication helps people feel better, but behavioral therapy helps people get better and stay better. Behavioral therapy is required because that is the best way to work towards long-term recovery.
