Caron's mission is to provide an enlightened, caring treatment community in which all those affected by alcoholism or other drug addition may begin a new life.
Caron Treatment Centers is a nationally recognized non-profit provider of alcohol and drug addiction treatment. Caron has more clinical programs to meet the specific needs of each patient, regardless of their age, gender or severity of their addiction than any other treatment center in the U.S. With experience in treating co-occurring disorders, Caron offers the most comprehensive treatment programs for adolescents, young adult, adults and their families. All of Caron’s programs are staffed by full-time professionals to ensure each patient receives an individualized treatment team, consisting of a psychologist, addiction counselor, medical staff and pastoral care counselors.
Caron is one of only two treatment centers affiliated with The University of Pennsylvania; additionally, Caron works directly with the Treatment Research Institute, one of the country’s pioneering addiction research organizations. Both affiliations afford Caron the ability to provide cutting-edge addiction treatment using the most effective and researched evidenced-based practices. Caron also trains its clinical staff on-site in evidence-based practices, such as 12-Step facilitation, motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy and follow-up telephone continuing care. We also utilize the expertise of a Professional Advisory Council comprised of nationally renowned medical and psychiatric experts in the field of addiction treatment to indentify innovative and cutting-edge treatment.
For more than 52 years, and in the spirit of the Chit Chat tradition, Caron has stood the test of time as one of the oldest and largest single-site treatment facilities in the U.S. Caron operates a residential treatment center in Wernersville, in southeastern Pennsylvania; regional offices in Philadelphia, New York City, and Bermuda; as well as Caron Renaissance, a primary and extended care treatment center in Boca Raton, Florida; and Caron Texas, a primary adult residential treatment facility just north of Dallas.
