Located in Sacramento, Calif., Cedar Point Recovery provides individualized treatment to adults that combines evidence-based and holistic therapies. The rehab center coordinates with local sober living facilities to house clients enrolled in its partial hospitalization program. The facility also offers step-down outpatient programs and aftercare support.

Specialized programming for professionals and detoxification services are available. Cedar Point is operated by Sprout Health Group, a national addiction treatment provider with headquarters and outpatient programs at its Advanced Health and Education facility in New Jersey.


To begin the assessment process, clients first undergo a 10- to 20-minute phone consultation. Admission can often be arranged within a day, and its PHP with sober housing typically runs from 30 to 90 days.

Clients participate in a full day of programming, which includes trauma-informed individual, group, and family counseling sessions, and clients are also immersed into 12-step fellowship. While cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is the central modality used at Cedar Point Recovery, several other approaches are utilized, including mindfulness training and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) to address trauma.

Among the holistic therapy offerings are yoga, equine therapy, and meditation. Clients who have co-occurring disorders receive integrated dual diagnosis treatment, which may include medication management to address mental health symptoms.

The intensive outpatient program (IOP), typically recommended following completion of PHP, meets for up to nine hours per week, usually for 16 weeks. Once a client completes IOP, case managers help them form an effective extended-care plan to support relapse prevention. Aftercare is also supported through Cedar Point Recovery's alumni association activities.


Under the direction of a chief operating officer, who holds a doctorate in clinical psychology, Cedar Point Recovery’s treatment team is comprised of master's-level counselors, case managers, licensed alcohol and other drug counselors, and a dietitian. The facility is one of the 182 (13.9 percent) Joint Commission-accredited treatment facilities in the state.


Cedar Point Recovery arranges supportive housing for clients, which includes a gym membership, comfortable indoor and outdoor communal areas, and, on some sites, a swimming pool. Clients also receive meals customized to meet their dietary preferences.

The facility's website notes that visitation and phone use can be arranged following an initial blackout period and at least one family session. Smoking is allowed in designated times and places.


At the time of this writing, 16 alumni polled by Rehabs.com offered highly positive feedback. More than half of the reviewers specifically mentioned the facilities, describing the center's settings as comfortable and beautiful. “They make your stay as comfortable as possible,” wrote Joshua, while Kent praised the nutrition and "plush" amenities.

Alumni also praised the staff, whom alumni characterized as caring, knowledgeable, and responsive to individual needs. Treatment highlights included increased self-awareness, life skills, and understanding of addiction.

On Google, Cedar Point Recovery has an average rating of four out of five stars based on 49 reviews.[1] Reviewers noted that the staff is “caring and professional,” with “5 star quality” food and effective treatment. However, there was also a number of negative reviews that claimed that the positive reviews were fake.


The sole family member polled by Rehabs.com to date reported a negative experience with Cedar Point Recovery. Leanne, the daughter of a client, gave one out of five stars for most aspects of the program, including the qualifications of the staff, family participation, and counseling options. She depicted the facility as chaotic and expressed confusion about why her mother was released early.


Feedback provided to Rehabs.com by five Cedar Point Recovery staff members was extremely positive. Their ratings indicated that 12-step and faith-based treatment modalities were not central to the facility's programming. Four of the five reviewers agreed with alumni who highlighted the program's accommodation of client needs and preferences, while one cited this as a weakness.

Holistic Offerings: 5/5
Family Participation: 5/5
Counseling Options: 5/5

On Indeed, Cedar Point Recovery had an average rating of 2.3 out of five stars from 12 reviews to date.[2] On Glassdoor, the average rating was 2.6 out of five stars.[3] While a few reviews provide positive feedback about the compensation and the environment, current and former employees tended to provide negative feedback about everything else. One former anonymous employee wrote: “This company is Unethical, unprofessional and unorganized. Greed rules.”


Cedar Point Recovery accepts private insurance, which is only accepted at 56 percent of California’s facilities. The facility’s intake coordinator can help clients to understand their level of insurance coverage to locate third-party financing options, if necessary.

Amazing facility. The staff is so kind they really care about their patients and they really try to accommodate you as much as they possibly can. I have never felt more comfortable and more taken care of then I did with my stay at Cedar Point. I learned so much about myself and about my addiction and within a few weeks I was ready to face the world and start my new life in recovery.

Ceder Point rehab was wonderful. The treatment I received there was incredibly effective. The Sacramento facility is plush and easy to get to within the city. The food was fantastic. The docs there taught us about proper nutrition and it has served me very well in aftercare. I would recommend this rehab to any addict who is seeking help, it works.

Cedar Point Recovery provides the full continuum of comprehensive care. They provide an integrated treatment approach that is client centered and clinically driven. The facility is not a centrally located as some community members may need to access care. As an employee of Cedar Point Recovery, I would have to say that the accommodations are great and the food is excellent, but it's the quality of care and our curriculum that are completely life-changing!

If I could give zero stars I would. They accepted my 71 year old ADA mother into program for 90 days. They kicked her out of the program in 30 days with no explanation whatsoever. If you truly have a loved one that you care about and want them to get drug and alcohol addiction help this is the worst place to send them. We still have no idea why my mother was treated so poorly or kicked out of this facility, but all I want to do is keep others from making the same mistake we did. Do yourself a favor and go to a real drug and alcohol rehab facility!!
