Preparing Youth to Thrive

Today’s youth face many challenges. More often than not, they need help when it comes to finding- and taking- the right path. In response, we’ve developed several programs to help students reach their potential and equip them with the knowledge and skills they need to overcome life’s obstacles in a healthy, substance-free way.

Programs and services can be offered in person or through virtual platforms.

At Caron, we can help you build a treatment program that meets your needs.


Caron SAP provides behavioral health assessments for students in grades five through twelve. During one-on-one meetings, Caron SAP Specialists interview students to identify substance abuse related problems, mental health issues, and other factors that could negatively affect a young person’s life. Upon completing the comprehensive assessment, Specialists make recommendations and help students implement them.

Recommendations are confidential and will only be shared with the guardian of the student and the school’s SAP Core Team. Participation is voluntary: Parents have the right to choose whether their children will participate.

Request assessment services.

Caron SAP frequently partners with schools to offer assessment services. Additionally, concerned parents can use this form or call 800-678-2332 ext. 6117 to arrange a private assessment.

Intervention Programs

Teen Intervene is a time-efficient, evidence-based program for teenagers (ages 12 to 19) suspected of having mild to moderate problems with alcohol or substance abuse. Usually recommended as a result of an SAP assessment, Teen Intervene involves two to three individual sessions designed to educate teens on their current behaviors and motivate them to pursue positive change.

The Teen Intervene program integrates stages of change theory, motivational interviewing, and cognitive behavioral therapy to help teens reduce, and ultimately eliminate, chemical use. Teen Intervene teaches teenagers how to:

  • Understand reasons for alcohol or drug involvement
  • Learn new skills that promote healthier behaviors
  • Increase willingness to change behavior related to alcohol or other drug use
  • Take responsibility for self-change

Get your teen involved.

If you think your child or student could benefit from Teen Intervene, please call 800-678-2332 ext. 6117 or contact Caron SAP. Together, we’ll arrange an assessment and decide whether Teen Intervene is an appropriate next step.
