Treatment Center Setting
Cedar Creek Recovery Philosophy
Cedar Creek Recovery provides a safe and supportive atmosphere to help you recover from alcohol and substance abuse addictions. In a residential setting, you will utilize the 12-step program to help them through the different stages of recovery. Daily schedules are individually tailored to meet the specific needs of each client's recovery goals and include therapy sessions, recreational activities, and nutritional and fitness guidance.
Areas of Specialization
The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.
Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.
Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.
Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.

ABOUT CEDAR CREEK RECOVERY
Located in Manor, Texas, about 20 miles northeast of Austin, Cedar Creek Recovery provides a full continuum of treatment plans, from detox to aftercare for adult men and women with substance abuse and co-occurring mental health disorders. Available from 30 to 90 days, residential treatment care (RTC) follows a traditional 12-step based approach, while the center’s unique life skills curriculum – AVEnues – guides outpatient clients towards a successful recovery through academics, volunteering, and employment.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
According to the facility's website, as a first step for many, detoxification affords clients the proper time and place to assess their conditions and needs before heading into treatment. Once physically stable, clients in RTC begin working with their assigned therapist and case manager, who help build individualized treatment plans.
Whether in treatment for 30 or 90 days, programming includes off-site 12-step meetings, individual counseling, and group therapy sessions designed to help with relapse prevention, communication skills, meditation and relaxation, and relationships.
Partial hospitalization (PHP) and intensive outpatient (IOP) programs, each available as step-down levels of care, aim to increase and improve clients’ range and depth of life skills. Through participation in the skills-based AVEnues, clients can earn their G.E.D. or certificate from a vocational program, volunteer in the community, and practice mock interviews and targeted job searches.
Understanding the wide impact addiction can have, the facility also involves clients’ loved ones in its Family Recovery Program. Successful graduates also have access to continuing care for an additional year. Typically, this consists of follow-up calls and alumni events.
The center's website notes the treatment team is led by a board-certified physician who has more than a decade of experience in clinical, academic, and administrative psychiatry and medicine. Many of Cedar Creek’s staff members, therapists and case managers alike, are also in recovery.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
The facility's website notes the facility’s “team of culinary experts” prepare healthy, balanced meals daily, and clients have access to a gym, fitness classes, and outdoors recreation. Pictures on the treatment center’s webpage depict fully-furnished rooms, common areas with couches, a spacious, modern kitchen, and a working garden.
