If you are someone who needs treatment or a family member hoping to get your loved one into treatment, you understand just how tenacious opioid addiction is. At Caron, we have the experience, expertise, and resources needed to weaken that hold.
Based on scientifically sound evidence of effectiveness, our medically driven, multi-pronged approach to opioid addiction treatment gives you the means and support to free yourself from addiction’s grip. A specialty-trained, certified medical team manages your treatment plan to ensure that it meets your specific needs, including those related to mental health. Compassion and care for you as a whole person drive our treatment model.
Caron’s Opioid Program incorporates proven methods for treating opioid addiction with a focus on individualized, solution-driven care. Individual and group therapy allows you to address mental health and emotional issues that stand in the way of your long-term recovery. Through modalities like dialectical behavioral therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and cognitive processing therapy, you can build a foundation to sustain your recovery.
Caron’s Opioid Program includes:
Opioids disrupt normal brain functioning, leading to withdrawal symptoms like anxiety, sleeplessness, cramping, and sweating. With opioid-based medication-assisted treatment (MAT), you get relief from overwhelming withdrawal symptoms and with all forms of MAT, you get relief from the intense cravings that come with opioid addiction.
Caron uses sublingual buprenorphine and extended release depot naltrexone or extended release depot buprenorphine in its program. Your medical needs and history will be used to determine which medication will be most helpful to you.
Our program encompasses and emphasizes family treatment because we believe that treatment cannot succeed without it. A full-time, family therapist is dedicated to the Opioid Program, offering one-on-one counseling for you and counseling for your family in person and/or over the phone. In addition, family members take part in an education program that provides information they need to better understand substance use disorder, mental health disorders, and how best to support you in your recovery.
The multidisciplinary staff has the depth and breadth of experience and expertise needed to provide a comprehensive, holistic treatment plan. Team members include:
Caron’s Opioid Phase II Program is available for those who would benefit from expanded, more in-depth treatment of their opioid use disorder, including individuals who have participated in a primary treatment program outside of Caron .
Phase II takes a deeper dive into understanding the disease of addiction, building a stronger foundation for recovery. Together with your treatment team, you will address underlying issues that could be a barrier to long-term recovery, learn life and coping skills, and develop a continuing care plan that can support you in getting past cravings or a desire to relapse.
Phase II opioid treatment includes:
Throughout your treatment stay your treatment team will work to establish a long-term, multi-dimensional continuing care plan that incorporates MAT. Caron also offers an opioid-specific continuing care program to monitor and supervise you for one year after leaving treatment and help you and your family navigate long-term treatment and recovery.
