At a Glance
As a licensed outpatient provider, we
treat teens, young adults, adults, and their family members.
Our full continuum of services
includes assessments, intensive outpatient services, referrals, recovery support, and prevention education.
Comprehensive Drug and Alcohol Assessments
- Caron believes that the most effective substance use disorder treatment is individualized, which is why our patients undergo a comprehensive evaluation process. Qualified therapists conduct evaluations to learn everything they can about the patient’s health, psychosocial history, addictive behaviors, and co-occurring mental health and addictive disorders.
- Based on their findings, therapists recommend the level of care most likely to help patients achieve wellness and long-term recovery. Depending on the patient, counselors may recommend outpatient treatment at Caron Atlanta, inpatient treatment at one of Caron’s residential campuses, or mental health services.
Intensive Outpatient Services
- The Adult Program (age 18+) supports patients as they create a life in recovery. Groups meet three days a week for three hours. In a group therapy setting supported by an experienced therapist and other group members, patients learn to deal with their emotions in a healthy way, resolve the challenges that come up, and develop coping skills. The counselor also provides recovery resources as needed.
- The Teen Program provides group therapy and support three days a week for three-hour sessions. Supported by an experienced therapist and their peers, patients learn healthy ways to deal with their emotions, overcome self-defeating attitudes, and find enjoyable and engaging sober activities. Frequent substance use screenings provide accountability and reassurance.
- The multifamily group provides education, support, and counseling for family members, spouses, and significant others, enabling patients to create healthier relationships.
- Individual counseling with a skilled therapist helps patients build a stronger foundation for lasting recovery. Family members can also meet with a counselor to identify, discuss, and address how the patient’s alcohol or drug use has affected them.
- Weekly outpatient groups for teens, adults, professionals, college students, men in early recovery, and women in early recovery provide a safe space to deal with issues and challenges as they come up.
- Case management meetings allow the treatment team to review treatment plans, chart progress, and address newly identified clinical issues with the patient.
Family Education and Support
- Parent and family support groups provide a confidential, safe place for family members to find resources, support, networking opportunities, encouragement, and hope.
- A therapist-led education group for parents, significant others, spouses, and extended family whose loved one is struggling with the disease of addiction offers a forum to discuss codependency, enabling vs. support, healthy communication, and other topics.
