Caron Philadelphia Programs

We treat individuals ages 18+ in the Greater Philadelphia region and specialize in working with older adults. Our team will work with you to plan treatment to fit your life. In our programs, you will find an atmosphere that is designed to build cohesion and companionship. Those bonds will facilitate your treatment and recovery and build a foundation of support you can rely on beyond your time in treatment.

General and Intensive Outpatient Programs

Like the counseling groups, these outpatient programs will incorporate evidence-based techniques that enable you to work through the issues associated with addiction in a private one-to-one setting. For the Intensive Outpatient Program, individual counseling will be done as needed. For the General Outpatient Program, individual counseling sessions will be held weekly.

Recovery-Informed Executive Coaching Program

With the help of Caron's Recovery-Informed Executive Coaching Program, you can flourish in your work while sustaining your recovery by learning how to integrate a healthy recovery with your professional responsibilities and commitments. You can develop your capacity for high-powered performance based on a healthy recovery by working with an executive coach who is familiar with the demands of an organizational profession.

Student Assistance Program

The Student Assistance Program offers comprehensive, individualized drug, alcohol, and nicotine prevention services and healthy living programs for elementary and high school children, parents, guardians, and professionals working with young people. Over 120,000 children, professionals, and parents/caregivers receive contracted fee-for-service, and grant-funded programs and services each year from Caron, which collaborates with schools, families, communities, and other organizations.

Student Success Program

Substance use disorder treatment does not have to jeopardize a young person’s academic prospects and hopes for an engaged and rewarding future. The Student Success Program at Caron Pennsylvania offers critical educational services and support to focus on achieving academic goals while motivating our teens and young adults.

Caron Philadelphia Highlights

Our clinical team understands your need for flexibility and is creative in its approach to give you whole-hearted support. Your treatment team will include licensed behavioral health professionals. For both outpatient programs, the core components are:

- Counseling Groups where you and your peers will learn how to process dynamics associated with addiction and recovery in a confidential and safe space, facilitated by a member of the clinical team.

- Education on Addiction and Recovery sessions where you learn how addiction works, the symptoms of relapse and how to prevent it, the role that mental health disorders (like depression and anxiety, for example) play in addiction, and how to build a life in recovery.

How Does Addiction Affect the Brain? Addiction changes the brain in fundamental ways, causing impaired control over impulses and weakened ability to make reasoned decisions.

What Causes Drug Addiction? The causes of drug addiction, better known now as substance use disorder (SUD), are still not completely understood and need more research. Alcohol and drugs artificially trigger the brain’s reward centers, which, for some individuals, can lead to compulsive substance use and substance-seeking behavior regardless of negative consequences. Theories on what causes drug addiction include traumatic life experiences, genetics, and adolescent or childhood use of substances. It is likely a combination of all these factors and others, which require further addiction medicine research.

How Do Drugs Affect the Brain? Drugs affect how neurons in the brain send, receive, and process molecules. This allows the drug to bind and activate specific neurons, changing how an individual thinks, feels, and perceives their environment.

How Drug Addiction Affects Relationships? Drug addiction is detrimental to relationships. Harm may consist of alcohol or drug-fueled arguments, lapses in responsibility, financial problems, deceit in covering up the disorder, or isolation due to undesirable behaviors.
