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, California provides a range of outpatient programs for adults and adolescents struggling with substance use disorder. Kaiser's CDRP is one of 257 California treatment facilities to offer a partial hospitalization program (PHP), which make up just 18 percent of all facilities in the state.

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. The PHP (also referred to as "day treatment") provides clients with an average of 21 full days of highly structured group and individual sessions. In the eight-week early recovery program, clients attend an hour of programming every weekday evening. Finally, continuing recovery involves attending at least one group a week for a minimum of five months.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

The treatment team includes doctors, nurse practitioners, nurses, therapists, and support staff. The six individuals polled by Rehabs.com to date about the staff's qualifications rated them highly.

Staff’s level of training and experience: 4.7/5

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

All seven of the alumni surveyed by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing gave CDRP positive feedback. Former clients praised the program for its effective and varied treatment, its compassionate staff, and its large treatment network. "I was treated with respect, 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," Bruce wrote in a representative review.

The facility also fared well on Google[1], where it earned an average rating of four out of five stars based on nine reviews. And on CiteHealth, CDRP received one five-star rating from an anonymous alum who wrote: "Great service, friendly and professional staff."

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

All of the four loved one polled by Rehabs.com to date gave CDRP positive reviews. They noted that the treatment team was friendly, well-trained, and open about their personal recovery experiences. "Several of the staff shared their own rehab experiences which was very helpful," wrote one of the anonymous respondents. Another anonymous reviewer added that the facility provided its clients with plenty of helpful resources for support outside of the program.

FINANCING

As a Kaiser Permanente facility, the center accepts Kaiser Permanente insurance, as well as Medicaid and MediCal. It is among the 29 percent of California facilities to accept Medicaid. There is currently no further information provided on the facility's website regarding its costs. However, the six individuals polled to date on the center’s affordability rated it highly.

Affordability: 4.3/5

Best for the price with some of the latest applied theories for treatment. strict, knowledgeable, handy. same as society's, addiction is a cultural phenomenon, individual treatment is an end-stage solution to the product of an unhealthy and ignorant "civilization"

It was mostly outpatient, full-day, but they made sure she had support and resources when she wasn't there. It did the job.

Program was out-patient. Most of the counselors had been addicts and/or alcoholics. It is a good "salt of the earth" program.
