The Center for Dependency, Addiction and Rehabilitation (CeDAR) is a 50-bed residential evaluation and treatment facility for young adults and adults afflicted with chronic substance dependency and addiction.

This state-of-the-art facility is housed on the west side of the Anschutz Medical Campus, in a picturesque wooded area with courtyards, paths and trails for exercise and meditation. This location is secluded enough to provide the right environment and privacy, yet close enough so patients can visit the Outpatient Pavilion and Inpatient Pavilion for acute diagnostics and medical treatments.

The Center is operated as part of the Centers for Advanced Medicine at University of Colorado Hospital, under the leadership of a medical director from the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Colorado School of Medicine.

The Center also has a strong collaboration with the University of Colorado Denver for education and research. Medical students and residents have the opportunity to serve on rotation and participate in seminars and summer institutes focused on the latest diagnostics and treatments in the area of addiction and dependency.
