About CeDaR

CeDAR’s fifth anniversary marks its emergence as one of the country’s leading residential treatment facilities, its success in part attributable to its unique affiliation with an academic medical center – the University of Colorado Hospital.

“We are passionate about helping patients and families find and stay on the road to recovery,” says CeDAR Director, Frank Lisnow. “We are honored that AEG has chosen to recognize CeDAR by partnering with such an esteemed artist to raise awareness about our work.” Each year, one in four deaths in the United States can be attributed to alcohol, tobacco or illicit drug use. CeDAR has helped more than 2,000 individuals and family members deal with addiction and begin to rebuild various aspects of their lives. At CeDAR, treatment includes individual therapy, group counseling, 12-Step study, daily exercise and spiritual guidance. CeDAR also includes state-of-the-art pharmacology in its treatment.

In addition to its 30-day residential treatment program, CeDAR specializes in support programs that help cement and sustain sobriety including the Family Program, Residential Extended Care, Alumni Program and Support. Patients struggling with chemical dependencies may also suffer from co-occurring disorders, such as bi-polar disease, depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress or compulsive gambling. CeDAR is the only facility in Colorado that works with co-occurring disorders and has two addiction psychiatrists on staff.

In recognition of its excellence, the Colorado Employee Assistance Professionals Association named CeDAR the 2008 “Provider of the Year.” For more information about CeDAR, visit:
