Caron’s mission is to transform lives impacted by drug and alcohol addiction through proven, evidence-based, comprehensive, and personalized behavioral healthcare. Caron believes that everyone deserves an opportunity to access our care. Last year, with the help of our generous donors, Caron provided nearly 2.3 million dollars in financial assistance to those seeking treatment from the Greater Philadelphia Region. The gala supports our scholarship program to increase access to treatment as well as for programmatic support to significantly increase recovery outcomes.

Our Greater Philadelphia Gala will celebrate recovery and family, provide hope and inspiration, and connect our Caron community. We hope you will join us to hear stories of strength and courage, and enjoy an evening of fellowship, food, entertainment, and an awards program to recognize all those in recovery.

Honoring The Forst Family with the Richard J. Caron Excellence Award

The Forst Family was selected for demonstrating the same spirit of caring and compassion exemplified by Caron’s founders Dick and Catherine Caron, and for their ongoing support of Caron’s mission.
