Whether you need help for yourself or a loved one, turn to Caron Atlanta for an evidence-based approach to treatment for substance use disorder.
As a licensed outpatient provider, we offer assessments, intensive outpatient services, referrals, recovery support, and prevention education, providing a full continuum of services. We have programs and services available for teens, young adults, adults, and their family members.

Comprehensive Drug and Alcohol Assessments

A licensed therapist trained in substance use disorders conducts a thorough assessment, which includes physical and mental health as well as medical history. The therapist meets with the patient (and family members, if appropriate) to discuss a treatment plan based on the results of the assessment.

Intensive Outpatient Services

Adult program: Designed to support adults (age 18 and up) as they create a life in recovery, the program provides group therapy and offers recovery resources. Groups meet three days a week for three-hour sessions. Guided by an experienced addiction counselor, participants address clinical issues, learning to deal with their emotions in a healthy way, resolving the challenges that come up, and developing coping skills. They also encourage each other to try new healthy behaviors and challenge self-defeating attitudes.

Teen program: With the support of experienced addiction counselors, teens beginning recovery participate in group therapy three days a week for three-hour sessions. The groups are centered on developing a positive peer culture. Teens learn coping skills, find enjoyable and engaging sober activities, and develop a recovery action plan. They deal with clinical issues and learn healthy ways to deal with their emotions and overcome self-defeating attitudes with the support of their peers and the counselors. Participants also receive frequent drug screens.

Multifamily group: In this weekly group, patients and their 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.

Individual and Family Counseling

With the undivided attention that one-on-one sessions with an addiction counselor provide, patients receive support and guidance tailored to their needs. The counselor guides the patient as they work through issues related to substance use disorder and any co-occurring disorders that they may be dealing with. The focus and depth that individual counseling offers can help patients build a stronger foundation for lasting recovery.

Family members can also meet with a counselor to identify, discuss, and address issues related to how they have been impacted by the client’s alcohol or drug use.

Weekly Outpatient Groups

For teens and adults who need support in their recovery but do not need intensive counseling services, weekly groups led by an addiction counselor provide a place to deal with issues and challenges as they come up and learn positive healthy skills and behaviors that maintain their recovery. We currently offer groups for teens, adults, professionals, college students, men in early recovery, and women in early recovery.

Case Management

Our treatment team meets with patients on a regular basis to review treatment plans, chart progress, and address newly identified clinical issues.

Family Education and Support

Family education: Led by a therapist for parents, significant others, spouses and extended family whose loved one is struggling with the disease of addiction, these groups meet on the first and third Tuesday of the month from 5 to 6 p.m. Topics include codependency, enabling vs. support, parenting, education on the disease of addiction and the recovery process, healthy communication, co-occurring disorders, and resources for family recovery and support, among others.

Parent and family support groups: In a confidential, safe space, parents and families impacted by alcohol and drug abuse and related behaviors find resources, support, networking opportunities, encouragement, and hope. The purpose of these groups is to form strong bonds and ties with other families of addicted loved ones by giving all family members a place to find support and encouragement.

Prevention Education and Early Intervention

The Student Assistance Program provides comprehensive, customizable drug, alcohol, and nicotine prevention services and healthy living programs for elementary and high school students as well as parents, caregivers, and youth-serving professionals. Caron partners with schools, families, communities, and other organizations to provide contracted, fee-for-service, and grant-funded programs and services to over 120,000 students, professionals, and parents/caregivers each year.

Teen Intervene is an evidence-based, educational early intervention program for students (ages 12-19) who have issues with drugs/alcohol that need attention. Participants evaluate their use in a non-judgmental and confidential setting. Using the stages-of-change model, motivational interviewing, and cognitive behavioral therapy, the program leader helps them to address their use and make healthy changes.
