About Cody Regional Health’s Cedar Mountain Center
At Cedar Mountain Center we are healthcare professionals dedicated to the
overall health, wellbeing and safety of our clients, employees and greater
community at large. Given the emergence of the worldwide Coronavirus (COVID-19),
Cedar Mountain Center wants to assure you, our referents, colleagues and
families, our concern is to keep clients and staff safe from the spread

Substance Use and Recovery Services
Cody Regional Health’s Cedar Mountain Substance Treatment and Recovery
Center (CMC) is a 16-bed facility focused on healing alcohol and drug
Our program consists of full days of treatment activities from wake-up
in the morning to the evening, plus bedroom occupancy. In addition, we
offer a broad range of outpatient services to our region and community
for addiction and mental health. Cody Regional Health’s CMC is committed
to addiction recovery through a treatment program addressing the:
Body. Recover your body fitness while you heal from the presence of chemicals
through recreational activities in beautiful Cody County, exercising at
CMC's in-house fitness facility, and eating regular nutritious meals.
Mind. Recover your mind through medically managed detox services, individual
and group counseling sessions, education groups, nature therapy, and the
camaraderie of an intergenerational group that becomes your treatment
family. You will settle into a substance-free lifestyle surrounded by
individuals facing the same challenges and tended by caring staff.
Spirit. Recover your spirit through connecting with other individuals facing the
same challenges, 12-step group participation, nature therapy, and being
in an environment conducive to developing serenity and spirituality. Many
of our patients discover the family they are lacking as they connect with
their treatment peers in a healing environment.
Since our treatment unit has only 16 beds, there is a low client-to-staff
ratio, which allows for one-on-one care. Our association with West Park
Hospital campus gives us access to state-of-the-art medical treatment.
Having psychiatrists and counseling professionals on staff allows us to
treat co-occurring disorders simultaneously while treating addiction.
Our beautiful geographical setting and field trips to the local area help
expand the treatment experience.
Clients of CMC have access to:
Nature therapy: Our clients have weekly field trips to scenic locations in our local area,
Recreational center: At least three times weekly our clients enjoy yoga, Tai chi and the fitness
center where aerobic and strength training machines are available.
Adult and Senior Services: Our family-like setting provides a comfortable treatment climate for seniors
dealing with substance issues. As with all our clients, adults and seniors
have access to medical treatment for co-occurring psychiatric disorders
and medical treatment at Cody Regional Health.
Co-occurring disorder treatments: We have the capability to use an integrated approach to treating patients
who have a psychiatric illness and also a substance abuse issue.
At Cody Regional Health’s CMC, our philosophy of care encompasses
a type of healing environment that focuses on treating the whole client.
We believe when it comes to a person's health, there are many aspects
of healing. In treating the patient as a whole—not just treating
the disease—we can truly focus on healing.
We truly believe all individuals are worthy and capable of constructing
and enjoying a productive and rewarding life; thus our approach to all
clients as individuals with their own strengths, needs, and desires is
highly valued. We encourage and promote an atmosphere of open, honest
communication and sharing. Our foundation for this process is (and must
always be) based upon respect, truth, and empathy.
Dependency is a painful and difficult process, but we hold firmly to the conviction recovery can become a rewarding and
fulfilling accomplishment, unlocking hidden or unknown potential for growth,
peace and living a new and better way.
