Caron Atlanta’s Specialized Programs
Here at Caron, Atlanta, we provide a variety of different specialized programs that meet weekly to fit your needs. Our programs include:
Teen IOP Program
For teens 14 and up, who are beginning their lives in recovery, this program provides group therapy and support three days a week for three-hour sessions. Led by experienced addiction counselors, the groups are centered on developing a positive peer culture that includes learning coping skills, finding enjoyable and engaging sober activities, and developing a recovery action plan. Supported by the counselor and their peers, participants process clinical issues and learn healthy ways to deal with their emotions and overcome self-defeating attitudes. Participants also receive frequent drug screens.
Adult IOP Program
Caron Atlanta’s program for adults (age 18 and up) is designed to support participants as they create a life in recovery. Groups meet three days a week for three hours. Group therapy guides participants as they address clinical issues supported by an experienced addictions counselor and other group members. Participants learn to manage their emotions in healthy ways, resolve the challenges that come up, and develop coping skills. In a supportive group setting, group members and the counselor encourage each participant to try new healthy behaviors and challenge self-defeating attitudes. The counselors also provide recovery resources as needed.
Multifamily Group Program
This group meets weekly to provide education, support and counseling for family members, spouses, and significant others. Along with patients, family members take an in-depth look at their families of origin to better understand both beneficial and dysfunctional patterns of behavior. Through experiential activities, participants become more aware of emotional issues that have been present in their current and past relationships, enabling them to create healthier connections and deeper meaning in those relationships. Here at Caron, Atlanta, we give individuals the freedom of constructing a recovery action plan that can be used as part of their journey towards Recovery For Life by participating in our programs and setting individualized goals.
Gender Separation Treatments
Research indicates that people in addiction treatment are more comfortable and successful in recovery when they rehabilitate with peers of the same sex. Similarly, the challenges faced in early sobriety can feel daunting for a person, yet manageable while a part of a healthy peer community. Separating into groups by gender allows a more organic conversation and promotion of healthier coping skills through learning evidence-based practices that can be used in recovery. Our group of therapists utilize 12-step principles, CBT, and motivational interviewing. While healing from the effects of patterned drug or alcohol use, it is critical for people to feel safe enough to “be themselves” so that they can work through the root causes of their behavior. Gender separation removes any pretenses or masks, allowing people to be themselves and heal effectively.
