A Warm Greeting.

Checking In.

Our caring staff will review our policies and procedures with you, and give you a copy of our patient handbook, which includes information about the facility and the treatment programs, as well as other materials you will need during rehab. We’ll check your luggage in and take your picture for a photo ID. 

Then, we’ll have you sign our consent and release forms and complete any outstanding financial paperwork.

Caron Renaissance patients are encouraged to arrive independently on the first day. We'll let your family know you got here safely.

Medical Evaluation

The next step is for you to meet one of our licensed medical professionals for a thorough assessment of your health and current medical condition. Understanding your physical condition will help our clinical staff create an individualized treatment plan for you.

Detox, If Necessary

If you’re being admitted to our Pennsylvania facility, you’ll be evaluated for detox when you arrive. If detox is needed, you will be transferred to our on-site medical detox unit.

At Caron Renaissance in Florida, the medical and clinical teams will evaluate you for detox prior to the first day or upon admission. If you do require detox, the medical team will make arrangements for you to be transferred to a local detox facility.

In detox, you will be monitored carefully in a safe, comfortable environment as substances work their way out of your system. Renaissance staff will remain in close contact with the detox facility during your treatment.

Settling in and Meeting Others

If detox is unnecessary (or once it’s complete), you’ll be shown to your room and get some time to settle in. Before the first day comes to a close, you’ll meet with your primary therapist.
