Alcohol Treatment: San Bernardino, Riverside, and Fontana Residents Get Answers to Common Questions about Care

When people are ready for help with a drinking problem, they may turn to professional programs such as the ones Cedar House offers for alcohol treatment.

Riverside, San Bernardino, and Fontana participants often have a lot of questions about what to expect from their experience. Below, we provide answers to common questions that participants ask before joining our community. Read on, and then get in touch with Cedar House to find out more about our work.

Would you send your child to Cedar House for alcohol treatment?

Parents in Fontana, Riverside, and San Bernardino are sometimes the ones responsible for encouraging their child to seek help. They want to provide the best care possible while being sensitive to the individual needs of their loved one.

We believe completely in the opportunities that Cedar House provides. Our residential treatment program—available for those age 18 and over—is a supportive community environment that helps to change lives.

In this program, we offer a safe space for participants to step away from their old lives and to find a new way forward. Cedar House offers individual and group treatment; a case manager and an individualized plan for care; and licensed medical and support staff. Here, participants receive the help they need and may not find in another setting.

Do Cedar House's treatment programs work?

Cedar House has been providing alcohol treatment to the San Bernardino, Riverside, and Fontana communities for over forty years. During that time, we have helped hundreds of individuals overcome chemical dependency.

Our programs are based on best practices and scientific evidence. We are licensed by the State of California Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs, and we continue to develop new programs based on the needs of our community. In addition to Cedar House's residential and outpatient programs, we provide services for pregnant women, women with children, and the alumni of Cedar House.

If there is a common factor among those who have found success, it is their readiness for change. The Cedar House system works when participants open themselves to the process and allow themselves to share things that they have protected, to their own harm, for so long. We make this easier with constant and professional support.

What is the experience like?

Cedar House is a 10-acre facility close to the San Bernardino, Riverside, and Fontana communities. It offers attractive grounds, a serenity garden, two gymnasiums, common dining area, and other amenities. We provide a comfortable space to do the work of sobriety.

At the same time, we focus on offering the most effective programs, building a welcoming culture, and hiring outstanding staff. While other facilities spend money on creating vacation-like settings, we feel this distracts from treatment.

Instead, we target the investment that our participants make on services that matter. This also allows us to provide a more affordable program.
