3 Condition Information
Caron Treatment Centers accepts patients aged 13 years or older. For more information on services available to those 12 and under, please learn more about Caron's Student Assistance Program.

Caron’s services are designed to assist you as you make transitions during your recovery process, particularly those that may be more challenging, like transitioning from residential treatment to home. Even if you did not have treatment at Caron, you can still take advantage of these services.

A Recovery Support Services specialist will determine which services are most appropriate for your situation or recommend a higher level of care if needed. This program is not a substitute for continued treatment or your participation in a 12-Step program or other recovery program.


Why do I need these services?
Caron’s more than 60 years of treatment experience has shown us that periods of transition can be very difficult for individuals in early recovery. We have found that individualized, clinically driven support is the best way to address the challenges of transitions in early recovery.

Who will work with me?
You will be matched with a Recovery Support Services specialist, who is a trained clinician with extensive experience in recovery support programs.

How do I enroll?
Your clinical team will make a recommendation as part of your aftercare planning if the program is appropriate for you. The Recovery Support Services specialist will then coordinate with the team to ensure you have a smooth, comfortable transition when you are discharged.

Is my family able to participate?
Families have the option of participating in the program in the form of bi-weekly family meetings to be held at home or at one of Caron’s recovery centers (if accessible) or via phone. These meetings can be used to address challenges and successes within the family system during early recovery.

How long is the program?
Length varies by individual. Your Recovery Support Services specialist will design a plan and time frame for you.
