Services for Families:

Before Treatment

Caron Treatment Centers offers many services for family members of loved ones struggling with harmful substance use. These services are primarily for those who need information, as they look for treatment or help with assessing a family member. Many of these services can also be helpful to those whose loved one is in treatment or in recovery after treatment. These services are available to anyone who needs them and are not limited to family members of previous or current Caron patients.

Caron has groups in various locations on the East Coast, from Massachusetts to Florida, for family members, parents, siblings, and significant others.

Parent and family support groups are designed to meet the needs of family members at any stage of their loved one’s substance use disorder, whether they are using alcohol and/or drugs in a problematic manner, are currently in treatment, are or are in recovery.

Caron fellowship groups and programs are supportive recovery communities that connect alumni, families, and friends.

Caron Renaissance Support Groups are designed for family members whose loved one is or has been in treatment at Caron Renaissance, but many of the groups are open to other family members as well.

Caron offers a range of events, both in person (depending on COVID circumstances) and virtually, and many of those events provide useful information for family members. The Family Series, funded by Jay and Lauren Springer, offers events that provide generalized education and information as well as more specialized programs geared specifically to couples, siblings, adult children, and others.

Parent-to-Parent features parents who share how they are coping with the challenges of parenting a child with substance use disorder. The podcast includes mothers and fathers — some of whom are in recovery, some who are married, and others who are not — with children in their teens through adulthood.

This program gives children education, support, and a safe space to express their feelings. Leaders incorporate crafts, team-building exercises, recreation, and educational groups into the program. Families receive a list of resources that can provide ongoing support for their child.

Facilitated by trained SAP specialists, PREP programs provide valuable prevention strategies for parents and caregivers of children in elementary, middle, and high school.

This online course explains how family members are impacted when addiction is present in their lives and how professionals can provide understanding, support, and resources to the children, teens, and families they serve.

Breakthrough workshops help people discover ways to create more rewarding lives and more loving relationships. The workshops are intended for anyone seeking to examine and improve relational patterns, including those in recovery from a substance use disorder and those impacted by a loved one’s substance use.
