Supporting you through a variety of innovative virtual platforms to provide the education you need.
Expanding Our Reach Through Virtual Learning Programs
Prevention programming is now available to you in flexible and innovative formats at your convenience. Our work and home environments have changed thanks to the recent pandemic and the increasing capabilities of technology. Caron recently adapted their well-known prevention programming to be available in a virtual environment.
Digital Learning Program
Caron’s Digital Learning Program is an online platform that provides teens, parents/caregivers and professionals with dynamic, up-to-date educational courses that address prevention and substance use among youth. Our programs are available anytime, anywhere, at no cost to you or your organization. Courses in our library include:
PREP: Prevention Resources & Education for Parents/Caregivers provides knowledge for parents, grandparents, and other caregivers which can help reduce the chances that your child will engage in substance use.
Vaping and Marijuana Trends Among Youth provides school, child-serving, or healthcare professionals with the information and resources needed to impact youth and help them avoid substance use. Parents have also benefit from completing this program.
Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) is an evidence-based practice that helps professionals successfully conduct an SBIRT to identify, reduce, and prevent problematic use, abuse, and dependence on alcohol and illicit drugs.

In this socially distanced world, teens can still have access to a nicotine cessation support group experience through Caron’s Virtually CONNECTed. This 6-session group is an adaptation of Caron’s long-running Project CONNECT program. During the virtual sessions participants connect with a facilitator and other teens to examine their patterns of nicotine use, learn the benefits of making a change, develop strategies to address their triggers, and receive encouragement to reach their personal goals. Middle and High School students, ages 13-18, from across the country are welcomed. Register here.
