Caron Atlanta Annual Gala - A Night of Transformation

Caron Atlanta is hosting its Fourth Annual Gala, A Night of Transformation, on Thursday, April 18, 2024 at Piedmont Driving Club in Atlanta at 6:30 p.m. in the evening.

During this year’s Gala, we will honor Dr. Rhonda Dawes Milner and Gene W. “Dusty” Milner, Jr. 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 a Regional Recovery Center in Atlanta, offering specialized treatment for teens and adults; 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 million in charity care. This year, our goal is to increase those numbers to make an even bigger impact by providing more scholarships, advancing our research goals, expanding prevention education and opening The Keele Center in January, 2023, Caron’s state-of-the-art medical center in Florida.

The Gala will feature music and dinner, incredible trips and dazzling jewelry, and will be an inspiring, impactful and entertaining evening.
