Fair Oaks Recovery Center in Sacramento, CA is Proud to have Earned the Prestigious Chemical Dependency Recovery Hospital (CDRH) Status from the State of California
Created by: MJF | January, 2024
Through meticulous efforts and sheer hard work from our committed staff and leadership, Fair Oaks Recovery Center achieved the prestigious status of a Chemical Dependency Recovery Hospital (CDRH) when its doors opened in January 2023.
As defined by the state of California, “Chemical dependency recovery hospital” means a health facility that provides 24-hour inpatient care for persons who have a dependency on alcohol or other drugs, or both alcohol and other drugs…It is the intent of the Legislature that the chemical dependency recovery hospital will provide an innovative inpatient treatment program for persons who have a dependency on alcohol or drugs, or both alcohol and other drugs.”
Significance of CDRH Status
So what does this mean for individuals choosing Fair Oaks Recovery Center (FORC) for substance use disorder? The CDRH licensure, unique to California, is one of the most robust attainable by a treatment facility. Granted by the California Department of Public Health, a CDRH licensure signifies that Fair Oaks Recovery Center possesses the capabilities to provide high-level acuity care. While Sacramento, CA hosts numerous residential care providers, FORC stands out in Northern CA and is among the few in the entire state.
FORC adheres to a higher standard of care, enabling the treatment of co-morbidities, and offering dual diagnosis competencies to clients grappling with the use of multiple substances and co-occurring disorders. The CDRH capabilities empower the FORC team to extend assistance to broader client needs, even when other resources have declined.
ASAM level of care
FORC also maintains with ASAM a 3.7 level of care, allowing for individualized and medically supervised detox protocols other residential facilities would not take on. 3.7 As defined in part by ASAM:
3.7 programs provide a planned and structured regimen of 24-hour professionally directed evaluation, observation, medical monitoring, and addiction treatment in an inpatient setting. Level 3.7 program services may be offered in a (usually) freestanding, appropriately licensed facility located in a community setting or in a specialty unit in a general or psychiatric hospital or other licensed healthcare facility (The ASAM Criteria, p. 266). This level, characterized as subacute, provides services and supervision not available at lower levels.
FORC quality of care
FORC as both a CDRH and a Joint Commission accredited facility, provides four distinct levels of care: Detox, Residential, and two additional levels of structured and interdisciplinary outpatient care – PHP & IOP. Clients can genuinely transition from substance abuse and reclaim their lives in a safe and secure environment, testing their response to each new milestone.
Ensuring the safety of both patient and team members is paramount to the leadership. Team Members undergo critical training to monitor clients with state-of-the-art technologies for both client safety and improved clinical outcomes.
FORC is dedicated to achieving whole person healing. Clients receive top-notch care from 24/7 Physician access and oversight, 24/7 Nursing, and an ability to handle a high-level acuity of care both for SUD and dual diagnosis sets FORC apart.
