Cedar Mountain Center
At the Cedar Mountain Center of West Park Hospital, we have adopted a philosophy of care called Planetree. Planetree encompasses a type of healing environment that focuses on treating the whole patient. We believe that when it comes to a person’s health, there are many aspects of healing. In treating the patient as a whole – not just treating the disease or illness – we can truly focus on healing. We truly believe that all individuals are worthy and capable of constructing and enjoying a productive and rewarding life; thus our approach to all patients as individuals with their own strengths, needs and desires is highly valued. We encourage and promote an atmosphere of open, honest communication and sharing. We believe that our foundation for this process is (and must always be) based upon respect, truth and empathy. Recovery is a painful and difficult process, but we hold firmly to the conviction that it can become a rewarding and fulfilling accomplishment, thereby unlocking hidden or unknown potential for growth and peace. Cedar Mountain Center has an eighteen-bed facility dedicated to resolving the complex and sometimes overwhelming issues related to alcohol/drug addiction.
Areas of Expertise
What Makes Us Unique One on One Care: Since our inpatient unit has only 18 beds there is small patient to staff ratio, which allows for one-on-one care. Our association and proximity to WPH gives us access to state of the art medical treatment. Having psychiatrists on staff allows us to treat co-occurring disorders simultaneously while treating addiction. Our beautiful geographical setting and field trips to the local area help expand the treatment experience beyond the residential setting. Nature Therapy: Our patients have weekly field trips to scenic locations in our local area, which are often the highlight of the week. (Weather permitting) MORE INFO > Recreational Center: At least 3 times weekly our patients are transported to the Paul Stock Aquatic and Recreation Center. MORE INFO > Senior Services: Our family-like setting provides a comfortable treatment climate for seniors dealing with substance issues. As with all our patients, seniors have access to medical treatment for co-occurring psychiatric disorders and medical treatment at WPH located next door. Co-occurring disorders: We have the capability to use an integrated approach to treating patients that have a psychiatric illness and a co-existing substance use issue.
