CARON FLORIDA MEDICAL CENTER
A Signature Program, Redefining Care
Vision of Hope
Caron’s new Medical Center in Florida will significantly expand our capabilities to support more families impacted by the pain of addiction. We will be in a stronger position to help clients of all ages affected by heroin and opioid use disorders. In addition, we will be able to provide services desperately needed for older adults.
Why Now? ...Three Important Factors
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention there were more than 72,000 drug overdose deaths in 2017.
Crisis Impacting Older Adults
According to the National Institute of Health, nearly 2.8 million Americans age 50 and older meet the criteria for substance use disorder. That number is expected to nearly double to 5.7 by 2020
Need for High Quality Treatment
Many families seek high quality care for inpatient rehabilitation throughout the United States, but unfortunately find it difficult to access world class treatment. Our goal is to reduce financial barriers, helping those in need of care take their first critical steps in our new Florida Medical Center.
