Each and every individual who comes to Caron for treatment is given the tools to help form a solid foundation for a life of recovery. After treatment, patients will not be alone. The most important work patients will do for their recovery will occur the first day after they leave Caron. The same is true for the first week, month and year. Each individual has a very specific treatment plan once they leave Caron that requires guidance and patience.
Recovery Care Services (RCS) are available to patients at no additional charge upon leaving treatment. Caron stays connected to one’s recovery by making monthly calls for one year after discharge, allowing us to take an in-depth look at all areas of recovery, such as reinforcement and review of an individual’s continuing care plan (that was established in treatment), 12-Step participation, aftercare attendance, and social/family support.
RCS Specialists will ask questions to help the individual think more deeply and fully about his or her recovery and in that way become more self-aware and be able to identify the early warning signs of relapse. Specialists help balance the “ups and downs” of recovery and provide guidance on what areas of one’s recovery need work.
Recovery Care Services for the Family
Once a patient leaves treatment, Caron supports the family by offering regular phone calls to family members to focus on their own recovery program according to the principles of Al Anon, and depending on their loved one’s treatment experience, the home contract.
Topics of these phone calls with the family may include:
- What can I expect when my family member returns home from treatment?
- How can I be supportive without enabling?
- How do I establish healthy boundaries?
Phone calls for family members will occur several times a year and are offered at no additional charge.
