Caron offers customized programming for families of patients in our Older Adults Program. Each family's plan is different: the treatment team makes specific recommendations in terms of the length and content of the programming. Programming involves a family counseling session, in which a skilled clinician addresses the specific family dynamics and clinical needs of each older adult and his or her family. It also may include participation in select portions of the Relapse or Adult Family Education Programs and cover topics such as:

  • Caring for older adults and supports for caregivers
  • Addiction as progressive disease
  • Enabling behaviors vs. healthy boundaries
  • Introduction to recovery and 12-Step programming
  • Relapse behaviors
  • Effective communication
