Treating the whole person.

Caron patients frequently battle co-occurring disorders (also called dual diagnosis) in addition to drug or alcohol addiction. In many cases, the patient's co-occurring disorder has not been diagnosed or treated prior to admission to a Caron program.

Caron’s integrated behavioral health treatment model addresses dual diagnosis directly. We believe that treating the whole person, not just physical addiction, is the best and only way to help individuals achieve lifelong recovery.

Caron’s approach to co-occurring disorders.

Rather than relying solely on medications and procedural interventions, we practice holistic, integrated behavioral health care that yields lasting results. We identify co-occurring disorders as soon as possible, as dual diagnoses affects and informs the individualized treatment process. After the admission process, our patients meet with a program-specific psychologist, who identifies behavioral health disorders and confers with the staff psychiatrist when necessary.

 If a behavioral health issue is discovered, the psychologist, psychiatrist and other members of the clinical team work with the patient to develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses addiction in the context of dual diagnosis. Caron uses proven treatment modalities to treat Axis II disorders and other behavioral health issues. Treatment objectives include:

  • Helping patients to identify the issues that are preventing them from being successful in treatment or in life
  • Giving patients tools necessary for life fulfilling, chemical-free lives
  • Creating healthy family systems

Treating addiction and co-occurring disorders is an extensive and lengthy process; however, it equips patients and families to recover from addiction, manage co-occurring disorders and live healthier lives.
