Cedar Ridge Treatment Center


Located in a small Camden County town in central Missouri, Cedar Ridge Treatment Center offers a continuum of substance use and co-occurring mental health disorder treatment services. Evidence-based residential and multiple levels of outpatient treatment are available, according to a facility brochure. Specialized programming addresses DUI and other legal-related issues. The treatment center, also known as Family Counseling Center of Missouri, is part of Compass Health Network’s Pathways division, a nonprofit health care network serving Missouri and Louisiana. Cedar Ridge Treatment Center does not maintain a facility website.


Data available on a federal government treatment facility document identifies several specific approaches to rehab treatment offered at Cedar Ridge, including detoxification services. The facility’s brochure confirms that medication-assisted therapy is available and specifies that residential treatment is targeted for clients who have received a dual diagnosis and need concurrent psychiatric and chemical dependency care.

Residential, partial hospitalization, and intensive outpatient programming all incorporate Individual, group, and family counseling, which applies cognitive behavioral therapy. Clients are also encouraged to attend 12-step meetings. Educational sessions address anger management, relapse prevention, and trauma recovery.

According to the government document, this facility also follows a Matrix Model of therapy for clients involved in the criminal justice system. This program incorporates random drug testing with the other common practices of counseling, education, and self-help concepts. In addition, Cedar Ridge Treatment Center provides three levels early-intervention programming, each running between four and eight weeks.

Aftercare prioritizes connections to community services for housing, education, and employment, as well as offering individual and group counseling as needed.


While no specific treatment team credentials are provided by the facility, nursing and psychiatric staff are referenced.


Among the few details available regarding living arrangements and related offerings are brochure photographs presenting meeting spaces with modern decor and a prohibition on smoking reported in the federal document. The sole individual polled by Best-rehabs.com to date offered top ratings of five stars each for metrics measuring opinions of general accommodations, meals, nutrition, exercise and leisure activity, policies related to internet and phone use, and the facility’s cleanliness and upkeep.


Best-rehabs.com has not yet received feedback from any of this facility’s former clients, but reviews on secondary sites offered overwhelmingly positive perspectives. Compliments tended to highlight the staff and the informative, effective programming. One alum each on CiteHealth and Facebook reported that they learned a lot, and Google reviewers characterized staff as caring, pleasant, nice, and friendly.

The CiteHealth reviewer awarded Cedar Ridge five stars, recommending the facility in particular to clients in need of mental health support and psychiatric medication. They expressed gratitude for visitation and phone calls and reported “[keeping] busy with classes and cleaning.”[1]

One of four reviewers giving the facility five-star ratings on Google reported continued sobriety after treatment and another noted simply that the “programs work.”[2] On an unofficial Facebook page, an enthusiastic alum praised the facility for saving their life.[3]


One client’s loved one provided survey responses to Best-rehabs.com, awarding nearly all aspects evaluated four or five stars. Opportunities for family participation received just three, as well as holistic treatment offerings. However, the reviewer would highly recommend the program and indicated that the level of staff training and experience and availability of treatment for co-occurring disorders were strong.

By contrast, a client’s friend complained on Facebook of a lack of support and attention in treatment, reporting that the client did not see a doctor until they had been on-site four days.


According to the government’s facilities data, Cedar Ridge Treatment Center accepts Medicaid, Medicare, private and military insurance, and private pay, also offering a sliding feel scale.
