ABOUT KAISER PERMANENTE — CHEMICAL DEPENDENCY RECOVERY PROGRAM
One of more than 600 Kaiser Permanente medical facilities around the country, the Chemical Dependency Recovery Program (CDRP) in Oakland, Calif., offers a number of outpatient treatment programs for adults and adolescents, including a partial hospitalization program (PHP) The facility is centrally located, within easy reach of public transportation. If necessary, counselors can contact a member of the on-site medical team to arrange a medical detox.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
The level of care and length of treatment are individually determined by each participant and their assigned case manager. Outside recovery meetings are a mandatory part of every level of the center’s treatment, and staff strongly encourage participation in 12-step programs or secular meetings such as Life Ring.
Treatment is offered at three intensities. On the day treatment, or partial hospitalization program (PHP), clients attend on average 21 days of highly structured group and individual sessions. On the eight-week Early Recovery Program, clients attend an hour of programming every weekday evening. And continuing recovery involves attending at least one group a week for a minimum of five months.
The treatment team includes doctors, nurse practitioners, nurses, therapists, and support staff. The six individuals polled by Rehabs.com to date on the staff’s level of training and experience gave it a 4.67- out of five-star average rating.

In their comments, alumni repeatedly praised the staff: “I was treated with respect,” Bruce wrote, and another reviewer added: “Well-trained, experienced and compassionate staff.” Another reviewer still was happy to find that most of the counselors were themselves in recovery.
Alumni also repeatedly indicated that the program felt broad and inclusive. One reviewer cited “options for meetings besides AA” as a strength, while Bruce wrote: “I feel all areas of my nature were considered and I had the opportunity to learn more about myself in all aspects: physically, spiritually, mentally, and emotionally.” In the few isolated notes of complaint, an anonymous reviewer wrote that “they have Limited options,” and another anonymous alum wrote: “Caters more to older clients.”

In a representative negative review on Google, alum Mikaella wrote: "This place is awful & the relapse rate is extremely high with there program. If it is all you can afford & your last option MAKE IT COUNT. Do what is asked of you so you do not have to spend a year going there & then end up at a completely differently program. Kaiser CDRP is extremely strict. They're rules are absolutely ridiculous, the people running the place are goons."
