The Sober Dorm Program at Caron Renaissance
Sometimes, it can be difficult or unwise for a person who has just finished treatment to shift immediately back into “real world” environments, especially a setting such as on-campus college living. Every day, more colleges and universities are recognizing the need for on-campus housing designed specifically for students in recovery who would like to live together in a sober and supportive environment. In Pennsylvania, the treatment team has developed relationships with several local institutions that offer these services.
Caron Renaissance in Florida offers a Sober Dorm Program on our campus to support a transitional living program that supports students who are attending college and desire the structure and support of off-campus recovery housing.
The Sober Dorm Program helps foster a safe collegiate recovery environment of like-minded individuals working together daily to practice the principles of recovery and abstain from using drugs and alcohol.
An academic liaison is available and serves as an advocate to help students clarify, define and reach their academic goals and will work with the student and the school to achieve everyone’s needs.
