An Integrated Approach to Alcohol and Drug Addiction Treatment

Caron Treatment Centers is a provider of integrated behavioral health treatment. We blend addiction treatment with the latest evidence-based practices and historically proven treatments in medicine, psychology, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, 12-Step integration, motivational interviewing, and positive peer culture. Our approach also includes spirituality, health, fitness, nutrition, and education for patients and their families. We apply a multi-disciplinary, integrated approach to help every individual recover from substance abuse and heal holistically.

What Is Behavioral Healthcare?

Behavioral healthcare is a whole-person approach to helping addicted individuals and their families become and stay healthy. At Caron, we seek out the root causes of alcohol and drug problems and provide tools for sustained recovery and healthy living. In carrying out this work, we:

Evaluate. Using the American Society of Addiction Medicine’s criteria, we carefully and continually assess patients using six dimensions:

  • Past and current experiences of substance abuse and withdrawal
  • Health history and current physical conditions
  • Thoughts, emotions and mental health issues
  • Readiness and interest in changing
  • Relationship with relapse or continued use or problems
  • Recovery or living situation, and the surrounding people, places and things

Treat the patient and the family. Our patient-centered treatment includes the whole system: the addict and his or her circle of support. We believe the patient is the family and the family is the patient.

Treat co-occurring disorders such as anxiety, depression, trauma, personality disorders, and other problems that could be fueling addictive behaviors.

Treat multiple addictions and Addiction Interaction Disorder (which may involve sex addiction, gambling problems, or work addiction) with the belief that untreated addiction causes relapse.

Address each person’s unique needs. We don’t have a cookie-cutter approach to treatment. We create individualized treatment plans for each patient’s specific situation.

Integrate therapies, such as Biofeedback, expressive therapy (i.e. arts, dance, music, drumming), alternative therapy (i.e. traditional Chinese medicine, yoga), mindfulness meditation, recreational therapy, psychodynamic groups, experiential therapy (i.e. role play, dramatizations, hands-on activities) and pastoral counseling.
