Family involvement in treatment is vital for a teen’s long-term recovery, particularly because the entire family has been impacted by the disease of addiction. During the course of a teens stay at Caron, it is critical for parents and other appropriate family members to attend Caron’s Teen Family Education Program.

During the program, patients and families will learn:

  • The disease concept of addiction
  • 12-Steps programs
  • Parenting techniques that support recovery
  • Recovery tools
  • Creating a “home contract” between parent and child
  • Setting boundaries and clear communication
  • Issues relating to relapse, medications, and mental health
  • Continuing care plans

The Teen Family Education Program runs Saturday through Tuesday and helps families and teen understand the emotional consequences of addiction and how families play an integral role in the recovery process.
