At Caron we treat the whole individual - mentally, physically and spiritually. All of Caron’s programs are staffed by full-time professionals to ensure each patient receives an individualized treatment team, consisting of no less than a psychologist, addiction counselor, medical staff and pastoral care counselors. Patients partake in individual and group therapy, therapeutic activities, daily lectures and continue care planning. With this structure, 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.
Research has shown that women progress much better while in treatment if they are within gender separate programs, so Caron has designed a comprehensive continuum of care to treat the female addict by providing the most progressive treatment to sensitively address the context of a woman's addiction and empower her individual recovery.
Gender-separate services are provided to enhance the development of female support systems and focus on coexisting concerns that are important to women. Women are more likely to express themselves in gender separate groups and are often more willing to share about important issues, such as:
- Body image
- Sexual trauma
During a typical one month stay, women at Caron participate in individual counseling, group therapy and family sessions. Psycho-educational lectures address the 12-Steps and other addiction-related topics, such as the disease model of addiction, post-acute withdrawal, sleep hygiene and anger management.
Private rooms for adult treatment at Caron are available upon request. There is limited availability and additional fees apply. Please ask a Caron Admissions Specialist for details.
Women’s Extended Care
After a primary treatment stay, an appropriate referral to a woman’s next level of care is made. Some women may be recommended to continue their treatment within Caron’s continuum in Extended Care either at our main campus in Wernersville, PA or at Caron Renaissance in Boca Raton, FL.
Extended care, like primary treatment is gender-separate and gender-specific, with a goal to facilitate a gradual re-integration back into a patient’s family, social and work environment. Women participate in therapeutic programming, centered around the 12-Steps, group and individual counseling sessions, as well as family sessions.
