Families need the most support at the start of their loved one's treatment. Oftentimes its difficult for family members to comprehend all the intricacies of treatment - they are often exhausted from years of supporting their addicted loved one, fearful of what's to come, and may even have misconceptions about addiction and behavioral health treatment.

To provide additional support to families, Caron Renaissance’s Family Services Department offers each family member a family buddy or a family alumnus who is available for support; helping families acclimate to a new life with their loved one in treatment and gain comfort in their treatment choice of Caron.

This program allows family members to connect with and form a relationship with families who have already been through the process and understand what new families are going through. Family buddies can provide guidance during and following treatment and support them with the principles of recovery.

Alumni families from across the country volunteer to be a family buddy to assist new families of Caron Renaissance.
