What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The Inland Empire is battling a drug epidemic. People are suffering in their addiction, and families are struggling to survive the challenges that come with it. Drug and alcohol addiction leads to crime, poverty and even death. We aim to provide the most effective care and resources for individuals who suffer with substance use disorder, mental illness and homelessness.

Maple House Women with Children

Maple House is a residential program at Cedar House that offers a supportive environment for women to recover and get the skills they need to improve their lives while their children grow in a safe, stable home. Here, women, ages 18 and older, are a part of a social model recovery program with a 12-step method of recovery. In addition to individual treatment planning, individual and group therapy, alcohol/drug education, life skills education, parenting skills classes and anger management classes, Maple House offers social and recreational activities for our patients and their children.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Cedar House strives to serve individuals and families who suffer from the effects of substance abuse with individualized treatment programs.

Cedar House serves the most vulnerable and marginalized members of the San Bernardino and Riverside County communities every day with proven treatment methods for substance use and co-occurring disorders. We believe that treatment should respect the dignity and value of the individual’s physical, emotional and spiritual needs. We care about educating our clients on the services we provide and allowing them to share in planning our individualized approach to treatment. It is our philosophy to provide the highest quality services that hold the greatest promise of successful outcomes for our clients in the least restrictive setting.

Cedar House Life Change Center (CHLCC) is a multi-facility 174-bed treatment program dedicated to assisting adults in overcoming the challenges of chemical dependence, with a majority of clients funded through Medi-Cal. CHLCC provides withdrawal management, residential, and outpatient services for adult men and women. We also operate Maple House, a perinatal residential program able to accommodate 11 pregnant or parenting women and up to 15 of their young children. Additionally, a sober living facility called Sanctuary House in Bloomington for adult males and a co-ed housing program called Oasis House for transitional age youth located in Apple Valley are part of the overall continuum of care. CHLCC also provides programming for families affected by chemical dependency and a state-approved Driving Under the Influence Program. All of CHLCC’s treatment programs are licensed and certified by the State of California Department of Health Care Services.

Since 1973, Cedar House has helped tens of thousands of individuals find peace in recovery. We envision expanding our facilities to serve the growing need for treatment in the Inland Empire.
