The Renaissance Approach
At Caron Renaissance, we help patients recognize the patterns that have kept them stuck in unproductive, unhealthy patterns and move toward responsible, rewarding lives in recovery. We take a clinically intensive, individualized approach to both substance use disorder and process addictions. By treating them as a part of a dynamic system that includes mental/emotional health, family systems, and emotional maturity, Caron Renaissance enables patients and their families to build better, healthier lives and relationships with one another.
A typical addiction treatment experience usually lasts between five and 28 days. Research at the National Institute of Drug Abuse shows that treatment lasting less than 90 days has limited effectiveness. At Caron Renaissance, the minimum stay is three months, allowing our expert staff to provide the oversight and mentoring needed for patients to learn and use new behaviors and skills they can carry into their lives in recovery.
The Professionals Track supports people who have achieved a level of professional success—for example, but not limited to, those in a family business, mid-level professionals, and doctoral/graduate students—in maintaining their professional obligations while also focusing on the intense, rigorous treatment that can lead them to recovery. As clinically appropriate, patients in this track go off-campus for planned outings and take therapeutic leaves to experience their lives in recovery and process those experiences. Their treatment and living quarters are shared with other patients at similar professional levels.
The Internet and Video Game Disorder Track at Caron Renaissance is one of the first in the country dedicated to this disorder. In clinical collaboration with Dr. Clifford Sussman, our therapeutic approach guides patients through the process of delving into the deeper issues that may have contributed to their use disorder supported by our expert therapists and counselors. They also explore healthier activities like socializing with people face to face, playing sports, or taking up exercise and finding activities for their interests that don’t include screen time.

Treating the Family
Learn More About Caron Renaissance
Caron Renaissance believes that “the patient is the family and the family is the patient.” Addiction impacts every family member, which is why we treat not just the patient but the whole family. In consultation with the Caron Renaissance clinical team, the family decides on a combination of family services that will provide the best treatment for their needs.
