Sharing Knowledge to Prevent Addiction
Caron’s Digital Learning program is a comprehensive library of digital learning courses and other educational programs centered on substance use disorder prevention, intervention, treatment and recovery. Courses are designed for audiences of teens, parents, healthcare, school and child-serving professionals.

The Need
With over 60 years of successfully treating addiction and behavioral health issues, Caron understands the severity of substance use disorders in our country and that prevention and early intervention are key to addressing problematic substance use among youth. Working with over 900 school and child-serving organizations each year, Caron is renowned for the quality of their education and prevention programs. To reach a wider audience, we expanded our traditional educational programs to a digital format. Our digital format allows those unable to access our in-person programs to benefit from our quality programming in their location, completing the programs at their own pace. With digital learning, Caron can :

  • Increase awareness and understanding of addiction as a brain disease
  • Reduce the stigma of addiction and substance use disorder
  • Provide the required skills and information to teens, parents, medical and education professionals
At Caron, we can help you build a treatment program that meets your needs.

The Audiences

Our courses are currently available for healthcare, school and child-serving professionals. In the Fall of 2019, our library of digital learning courses will expand to include programs for teens, parents and caregivers, business, industry, community, and specialty groups.
