We meet our patients' and families' individual needs

We believe that no two patients are the same. Their circumstances for entering treatment are a result of varying factors, therefore we meet patients and families where they are at in life by tailoring treatment specific to each of you. We also have found that patients are most successful when they participate in treatment with peers who have similar life circumstances and are going through similar life stages, such as high school, parenthood, successful careers, and retirement to name a few. This understanding is the premise for making our programs age-specific.

Teens: Ages 13 to 18

Adolescents Can Be a Tough Audience

As any parent of a teenager can tell you, teens can seem unknowable. There’s already a sense of distance and misunderstanding with almost every teen; for teens who have behavioral and addiction and substance abuse disorders, the rift between parent and child can seem impassable.

It doesn't have to be. Caron’s top clinical professionals have a wealth of experience communicating with, understanding, and helping teenagers through their complex addictions --and other problems, too. When treating teens, we recognize that substance use disorders are rarely isolated; they go hand-in-hand with co-occurring disorders. At Caron, we address these disorders together--the approach is vital to a patient's success in treatment.

For teens, co-occurring disorders can include:

  • mood disorders
  • sexuality/relationship issues
  • abuse/family problems
  • anger
  • self-loathing/low self-esteem
  • self-injurious behaviors
  • body image issues/eating disorders
  • anxiety/depression

And, because addiction is a family disease, we believe it’s important to treat the whole family by addressing dysfunctional behavior within the family unit -- the patient is the family and the family is the patient at Caron.

What About School?

We treat individuals so they can have a better future, and for teenagers, one element of the future is education. Caron is one of the only programs in the country offering onsite education. Teens in Caron’s treatment programs receive assignments from their home school and can work to maintain their academic status.

Let our experienced staff address your teen’s issues and make your family whole again.  Learn more about our approach to treating teens. 

Young Adults: Ages 19 to 25

A Time of Enormous Transitions

From ages 19 to 25, young adults are dealing with perhaps the most intense, most disruptive transitional period life has to offer. During this time, most young adults move from living with their parents to living on their own. They must face many new responsibilities, like paying rent and planning meals. They may be enrolled in college or making the next big step forward with a job search and a new career. These pressures can result in a sense of desperation, a feeling of being “caught” between adolescence and adulthood.

For these reasons, we separate young adults from adults in our behavioral health and addiction treatment programs, . Our staff is well versed with the many pressures young adults face. We help them overcome complex substance abuse problems and treat the many co-occurring disorders and issues this age group may face, including:

We Treat Drug and Alcohol Addiction Holistically for Lifelong Recovery

Caron’s behavioral health and addiction rehabilitation program treats mind, body, and spirit. Starting with the primary addiction and encompassing all of an individual’s issues, we help young adults realize their need for a life-long recovery plan. Then we assist them in developing the desire, tools, and support to create it.

Let our experienced staff address the issues and make your family whole again.  Learn more about our approach to treating young adults.
Adults: Ages 26 to 64

Dealing with family, career, and social pressures is tough enough; adding addiction and other behavioral health issues into the mix can make life feel impossible.

Our addiction rehab programs for adults focus on healing individual issues to help you recover. Our team looks at who you are as an individual and how that relates to the roles you play and hats you wear (professional, parent, spouse, adult child); we strive to meet you where you are in life by tailoring treatment specific to you.

Caron’s clinical team with work with the entire family to evaluate each person’s unique needs and life circumstances to create an individualized plan. The length of treatment is also individualized for each person and based on how one is progressing and meeting their goals while in treatment.

Older Adults

Substance abuse (particularly prescription drug abuse) in older adults is the nation's fasting growing health problem.

Individuals 65 and older have a special set of concerns and emotions. They may be dealing with loneliness and isolation; the dramatic change (and possible boredom) of retirement; health issues; loss of loved ones; and many other issues.

With approximately 10,000 people turning 65 every day, prescription drug abuse (often prescribed for insomnia, anxiety, chronic pain, and other age-related conditions) is on the rise. When prescription drugs are mixed with alcohol, the effects can mimic other conditions, making early and accurate diagnosis more challenging.

At Caron, we understand the importance of age-specific rehabilitation and provide holistic treatment for prescription drug addiction and other substance abuse problems. Along with alcohol and drug problems, we address a multitude of co-occurring disorders for seniors (65+) while integrating systematic and behavioral health techniques; all designed to preserve dignity and build self-esteem.

There’s light at the end of the tunnel: Research has shown that older adult addicts can learn new things and have successful treatment results—they tend to follow treatment regimens more thoroughly.

Take the next step, let Caron help. Learn more about our approach to treating older adults.

Treating the Whole Family Is Critical

Addiction and behavioral health issues affect  persons with substance abuse problems and their loved ones. We understand that the families of addicts are deeply affected. Family members want to help their loved one, but the situation is delicate. Sometimes, the addiction becomes the family’s focus, throwing it into chaos. Addiction to drugs and alcohol inevitably leads to pain, confusion, and sadness.

At Caron, we believe the patient is the family, and the family is the patient. In other words, we believe it’s crucial (and in some cases required) for the family to be engaged in holistic rehabilitation from the very beginning of the pre-admission process.

We bring family members into the admission and assessment process from the start, so that their input can form the basis for a personalized addiction treatment plan. At Caron Renaissance, we pair new families with an alumni family “buddy” who can provide support, answer questions, and share experiences.

Each situation is different, but some of the ways in which family members might be involved in their loved one’s treatment include:

  • educational programming
  • talking to a family addiction counselor who is not part of their loved one’s clinical team
  • weekly phone calls with staff during the loved one’s treatment
  • intensive three-day family workshops aimed at identifying dysfunction and breaking the cycle of enabling
  • participation in Caron Renaissance’s Residential Family Restructuring Program

As family members work toward personal recovery, they are able to move toward healthier relationships with their loved one.

Children of Addicts: Young Children and Teens

There are many risks for children who grow up in an environment characterized by alcohol or drug abuse.

One of the biggest risks is the potential for those children to repeat the behavior they see and become addicts themselves. Caron is dedicated to the prevention of drug and alcohol abuse, and we feel it’s never too early to start talking to kids about the dangers and consequences of substance abuse.

The Satell Family Children and Teens program imparts the information, skills, and values that young people who have been affected by addiction need to make healthy choices and feel empowered to say no to drugs and alcohol.

The program, offered in Pennsylvania, educates children and teens about the disease of addiction and how each family member is affected by it. We utilize a structured program approach that is suitable for children and teens ages 7-15.

Discover how we structure this program to be educational and fun, within a safe and caring environment.
Individuals who have Relapsed

Addiction Is a Chronic Disease

A chronic disease is a long-lasting condition that can be controlled, but not cured. Because chemical dependency is chronic, there’s potential for someone who is in recovery from an alcohol or drug addiction to slip back into old patterns and behaviors; in other words, to relapse. There are many reasons why an individual in recovery may relapse. They may experience feelings that they perceive as negative, such as anger, sadness or loneliness; simply being in the presence of people or places where they used to get high may precipitate the relapse; or physical pain or even boredom could also trigger a relapse. A relapse can occur any time in a person's recovery; immediately following treatment or after a sustained period of recovery.

As a pioneer in treating those who have relapsed, Caron's addiction and behavioral healthcare treatment model allows the clinical staff to help patients and their families disrupt negative patterns of behavior, avoid triggers, develop relapse prevention skills.

Recovery is the process of building a new life, and that takes time.  Learn more about Caron’s approach to treating individuals who have relapsed; let us lead you and your family back to a life of sobriety.

Chronic Pain

We can address the growing population of suffering from chronic pain and prescription drug abuse.

Approximately 116 million Americans suffer from chronic or recurrent pain, and, depending on a variety of factors, as many as 40% of those may become addicted to the medication prescribed to treat it.

By offering an assessment program, as well as residential treatment, Caron can help those suffering from chronic pain identify the root cause(s) of their current pain.

If you are someone you know is suffering from chronic pain and a possible addiction, they will be guided through the treatment process by our team of professionals who have extensive experience managing and treating chronic pain in conjunction with a potential prescription drug addiction. Learn more about our approach to treating people with chronic pain.

Healthcare Professionals

We Understand: You’re in a Special Situation

Substance abuse affects people from every walk of life, and healthcare professionals are just as vulnerable as their own patients. For many, the fear of losing the respect of patients and peers, professional integrity, and a clinical license, is a huge barrier to acknowledging an alcohol or drug problem and pursuing treatment.

Caron recognizes the unique needs of healthcare professionals who may be struggling with a drug or alcohol problem. Caron has two established programs for healthcare professionals at their Pennsylvania location—a Residential Assessment Program to rule in or out a substance use disorder diagnosis; and an inpatient, residential treatment program.

Drug rehabilitation and behavioral health treatment for healthcare professionals is under the executive leadership of Caron's highly credentialed and experienced addiction medicine team, which has more than 50 years of combined experience working with healthcare professionals.

We offer a comprehensive addiction treatment program created specifically to help you take control of your personal and professional life by:

  • providing a private and safe setting for coming to terms with addictive behaviors
  • addressing sensitive issues and identifying barriers to sobriety that are unique to healthcare professionals
  • creating an individualized continuing care plan

Our goal is to help healthcare professionals cope with addiction and learn skills for sober living.

Executive Professionals

Privacy is paramount for prominent adults- Caron provides the necessary discretion.

C-suite executives, attorneys, politicians, artists and performers, and others with significantly developed careers are just as susceptible to addiction as everyone else, and may have more exposure to drugs and alcohol than most people. We understand that such prominent adults have special concerns when it comes to seeking help for substance abuse problems. Key among these is your privacy in order to maintain your personal integrity and reputation, as well a treatment experience that matches your lifestyle and places you amongst others who have common experiences and expectations.

Caron’s mission is to meet individuals where they are, and this holds true for those who have achieved great success. At Caron, we are able to meet the needs of individuals who have achieved great success by providing a rehabilitation environment that matches their lifestyles. We recognize that prominent adults such as CEOs, medical administrators, attorneys, politicians, musicians, artists and other highly regarded professionals need greater latitude and amenities, as well the ability to engage with likeminded patients in the same community.

We offer two programs for Executive Professionals in Florida and Pennsylvania at our Ocean Drive and Grand View locations.

Legal Professionals

Attorneys and legal professionals are among the most highly addicted and clinically depressed of all professionals. The risks and dangers of impaired legal professionals actively practicing can threaten the legal professional, his or her family, the law firm, the client, and the profession.

We offer a specialized, residential addiction treatment program for attorneys, judges, law students, and paralegals that addresses their unique addiction and behavioral health issues. Our program is overseen by an attorney/licensed addiction clinician who has extensive experience treating this population.

The program consists of three major components:

  1. Pre-entry – which includes a thorough assessment, customization of a personalized treatment plan and, when necessary, intervention strategies and services.
  2. Specialized therapy sessions – group and individual
  3. Aftercare planning and services

We recognize that there is often resistance by legal professionals to enter residential treatment. Our approach is unique, providing tailored services through peer interaction and direct programming.  Learn more.
