Caron’s multi-day family programming provides the knowledge, information, and support family members need to better understand substance use disorder and achieve long-term recovery. Our in-depth programs are tailored to provide information specific to the patient’s program. For example, family members of patients in treatment for opioid addiction receive information specific to opioid addiction and recovery while family members of older adults get information specific to aging and substance use disorder.
Healthy lives in recovery begin with care for the whole family. These services are meant to help the families of loved ones struggling with a substance use disorder during the treatment process.
Family treatment at Caron Renaissance begins with intensive psychosocial assessments of family systems in order to craft customized treatment plans. A dedicated family therapist works with each family to guide them in the treatment process and provides counseling to restore the family system to healthy functioning.
Caron Ocean Drive’s expert clinical team offers support for family relationships so that they are healthy and satisfying for each family member. All loved ones are invited—including immediate and extended family, friends, and colleagues—to participate.

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’s events, on all kinds of topics related to addiction and mental health as well as treatment, are offered virtually as well as in person (depending on COVID circumstances). The Family Series, funded by Jay and Lauren Springer, offers events that provide generalized education and information as well as programs specifically for couples, siblings, adult children, and others.

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.
Children receive support and education in a safe space that allows them to freely express their feelings. Experienced leaders offer crafts, team-building exercises, recreation, and educational groups as part of the program. Families receive a list of resources that can provide ongoing support for their child.
