Caron Atlanta Annual Gala - A Night of Transformation

Caron Atlanta is hosting its Third Annual Gala on Thursday, April, 20th, 2023 at Piedmont Driving Club in Atlanta at 6:00 p.m.

During this year’s Gala, we will honor Vicky and Paul Di Vito and Neil Di Vito with the Richard J. Caron Award of Excellence for their commitment to the life-saving addiction and mental health treatment Caron provides.

Caron Treatment Centers is an internationally recognized not-for profit dedicated to addiction and behavioral healthcare treatment, research, prevention and education. Our mission is Recovery for Life, and for 65 years, we have helped thousands of individuals and their families who are struggling with substance use disorder and mental health issues begin to manage these chronic and treatable diseases.

Caron has an Outpatient Treatment Center in Atlanta, offering specialized treatment for teens and adults, and provides assessments, individual counseling, intensive outpatient groups, family counseling, alumni and parent support groups. Caron provides financial assistance for those who qualify through a robust scholarship program.

Caron Atlanta’s Gala, A Night of Transformation, will help make it possible for families in need to receive Caron’s life-saving treatment. Last year, Caron provided $6.5 million in charity care; this year, our goal is to increase those numbers to make an even bigger impact. Caron is committed to provide greater access to care through scholarships, advancing our research goals and expanding prevention education in our schools. You can help us get there while enjoying a transformative evening.

This year’s Gala will feature music and dinner, dazzling jewelry and incredible trips, and will be an inspiring and entertaining evening – see you there!
