Providing Critical Resources for the Greater Philadelphia Region
Drug and Alcohol Assessments
Therapists trained in substance use disorders conduct comprehensive assessments following criteria laid out by the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM). Based on the results of that assessment, the therapist meets with the patient (and family members, if appropriate) to discuss the appropriate level of care and an individualized treatment plan.

Intensive Outpatient Program
This co-ed program is designed for adults who are coming from the community, detox, or residential treatment. It offers structure with flexibility so that patients can keep their work and/or school and personal schedules while in treatment. The core component of the program is the group therapy. An experienced outpatient therapist leads three group therapy sessions weekly. Two sessions are held in person at our office and the third is held virtually. Those sessions include:
- Psychoeducation about addiction, prevention, and recovery.
- Education on family systems, healthy boundaries, effective communication, coping, and other critical skills.
- Experiential and process-based therapeutic techniques.
The program also includes:
- Monthly individual therapy sessions, with additional sessions as clinically indicated. The sessions can be held virtually if clinically appropriate.
- Medication management.
- Family support and education.
Caron Philadelphia’s medical director is available to assess medications and manage medications for patients in the Intensive Outpatient Program as needed.
Individual Outpatient Therapy
With the undivided attention that weekly 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 therapy offers can help patients build a stronger foundation for lasting recovery.

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.
The Student Assistance Program provides comprehensive, customizable drug, alcohol, and nicotine prevention services and healthy living programs for elementary and high school students as well as parents, caregivers, and youth-serving professionals. Caron partners with schools, families, communities, and other organizations to provide contracted, fee-for-service, and grant-funded programs and services to over 120,000 students, professionals, and parents/caregivers each year.
