Comprehensive Drug and Alcohol Assessments
A licensed therapist trained in substance use disorders conducts a thorough assessment, that follows criteria laid out by the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM). It includes an assessment of physical and mental health, as well as a medical history. Based on the results of that assessment, the therapist meets with the patient (and family members, if appropriate) to discuss an individualized treatment plan.

Counseling Groups: In a confidential, safe space, facilitated by a therapist, group members process the dynamics associated with addiction and recovery. They also learn about key topics in addiction and recovery, including the symptoms of relapse and how to prevent it; the role that mental health disorders, like depression and anxiety, for example, play in addiction; and how to build a life in recovery.
Professionals Group: For professionals and executives making a transition from treatment to recovery, this weekly group provides practical strategies, group support, and clinical guidance during the transition back into their work environments. By using best practices and lived experiences, the group helps members to understand how to manage early recovery, while also reengaging with their professional lives.
Led by an experienced therapist, the group examines topics ranging from navigating work integration and understanding the impact of addiction on a career to balancing recovery, family, and work responsibilities and identifying personal and professional strengths in recovery, among others.
Early Recovery Group: This weekly group for people just beginning Recovery for Life incorporates experiential elements and peer support. In a confidential, safe space, facilitated by a therapist, group members process what recovery means, from creating a new kind of life and building healthy relationships to returning to work or finding a new job. Education provides knowledge and strategies for life in recovery, including healthy ways to cope and how to explore new passions and purpose.
Medical Consultation: A staff physician, who is a board-certified addiction specialist, is available to meet with clients to discuss medical needs related to substance use disorder (such as cognitive difficulties that may result from alcoholism) or treatment. The physician can also help with medication monitoring, including medication that may be part of medication-assisted treatment.
Individual and Family Counseling
With the undivided attention that one-on-one sessions with an addiction therapist provide, patients receive support and guidance tailored to their needs. The therapist guides the patient as they work through issues related to substance use disorder and any co-occurring disorders that they may be dealing with. We use a variety of psychotherapy approaches to best understand, guide, and support our patients. The focus and depth that individual counseling offers can help patients build a stronger foundation for lasting recovery.
Family members can also meet with a therapist to identify, discuss, and address issues related to how they have been impacted by the client’s alcohol or drug use.
Family Education and Support
Parent and family support groups are for families impacted by alcohol and drug abuse and related behaviors. They provide confidential, safe places for finding resources, networking opportunities, encouragement, and hope. Support group members help each other and welcome new family members and parents. In building a supportive network, members form strong bonds and ties with each other, opening opportunities for friendships to take root.
Recovery Support Services
Periods of transition can be very difficult for individuals in early recovery. We have found that individualized, clinically driven support is the best way to address those challenges. Caron Philadelphia’s Recovery Support Services team assists people as they make transitions during recovery, particularly those that may be more challenging, like moving from residential treatment to home. Specialists are trained clinicians with extensive experience in recovery support programs. They provide in-home services and personalized programs for individuals.
Families have the option of participating in the program in the form of bi-weekly family meetings to be held in their home or at one of Caron’s recovery centers (if accessible) or via phone/WebEx. These meetings can be used to address challenges and successes within the family system during early recovery.
