Our Cedar Recovery treatment plans are comprised of four key elements designed around whole recovery. The term "whole recovery" alludes to the fact that you can't successfully treat addiction with a one-pronged approach, such as just prescriptions, abstinence, etc.

Our treatment plans take a comprehensive approach to solving the complex problem of addiction - breaking down the problem and providing tailored treatment in four key areas.

Cravings are the single biggest driver for relapse to opioid use. Our Cedar Medical program utilizes buprenorphine-based medications to relieve cravings and manage withdrawal symptoms – helping patients feel better and creating an avenue to get better and ultimately stay better.

Unfortunately, the use of buprenorphine has abuse potential. A National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA) funded study conducted at the University of Kentucky showed that about 18% of the patients utilizing buprenorphine were using it illicitly. At Cedar Recovery, we understand the important role that medicine plays in the addiction treatment process and go out of our way to ensure patients are part of the 82% using buprenorphine as indicated.

We do this by building open relationships with our patients to ensure they know we will meet them wherever they are in the recovery process. We also utilize evidence-based drug screening to ensure compliance with our program and to identify patients that are struggling. In these cases, we may adjust their treatment program in order to give them the best chance of reaching their recovery goals.

As the brain begins to heal, coping strategies need to be developed. Our Cedar Therapy program utilizes Licensed Professional Counselors and Certified Peer Recovery Specialist to implement treatment models perfected by the abstinence-based community, helping patients get better and stay better.

Patients at Cedar Recovery have access to counseling and case management services throughout their treatment program. Counseling is an integral part of success in treating addiction and has proven to be effective when combined with medication. Every patient has an assigned therapist on their journey towards recovery, to monitor progress and support patients throughout the entire treatment.

At every visit, patients meet with their therapist to explore triggers and cravings, as well as learning new ways to manage life stressors that impact recovery. In addition to check-ins with a therapist, patients also have access to individual counseling, group therapy, and family therapy services. From individual therapists who specialize in treating addiction to access with family therapists providing family services, Cedar Therapy strives to provide excellence in therapeutic care helping patients meet their recovery goals.

Sometimes cravings trigger outside of office hours. We partner with StrongWell™ to offer our patients ongoing support when they need it the most – from any device at any time. Our mobile app provides 24/7 access to a therapist plus additional support resources to ensure you never feel alone on your road to recovery.

This app helps patients connect with certified peer recovery specialists (CPRS) and get the emotional support they need while they aren’t in the office. It also encourages our patients to keep their streak going, accomplish goals they set, and log their feelings every day. These tools are an invaluable step toward recovery, and an important way to stay motivated when not in the office.

The Cedar Community program is more than traditional case management. Connecting to purpose and receiving whole-life support is vital to treatment success. Our Cedar Community program provides patients with ongoing support in all aspects of their life, so they succeed and ultimately stay better. The following are areas where Cedar Community provides support:

  • Housing: Our team will help those in need of shelter by providing referrals and connecting the patient with sober living homes, government assisted housing, and real estate agents.
  • Finances– Our team will work with patients to help them obtain a bank account and build a financial budget for their family.
  • Employment – As patients begin to feel better and get better our team will work with them to find purpose and reconnect them to workforce and community. Cedar Recovery works closely with local employers to create opportunities for those in recovery.
  • Education -Our team will work with patients to help them obtain their GED as well as work with the Tennessee Promise program for those in search of higher education.  
  • Parenting - The purpose of parenting classes is to help parents feel more connected, involved and focused on their child. Parenting classes provide support, strategies, and tools on how to raise children and provide an opportunity for parents to share ideas and concerns with parents going through similar issues. In addition, our team will enroll new parents into the Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, a book gifting program that mails free, high-quality books to children from birth until they begin school, no matter their family’s income.
  • Legal – The disease of addiction can lead to legal struggles. The legal system can be challenging to navigate and can provide barriers to the recovery process. Our team will work with the patient to share their journey in treatment with the legal system.
  • Medical- Our team works closely with the patient to ensure coordination with other treatment providers to ensure their treatment at Cedar Recovery is working in parallel with the providers plan. In the event a patient does not have another treatment provider, our team will work with strategic partners in the community to provide referrals to the appropriate providers.
  • Insurance - For patients needing medical insurance, one of our Marketplace Certified Specialist team members will help you complete your paperwork and apply for medical insurance for you and your family.
