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.
What am I expected to do?
- Follow Caron’s clinical recommendations for continuing care and actively engage in the identified recovery-related activities, including:
- Maintaining complete abstinence of mood-altering substances, including alcohol
- Communicating with your Recovery Support Services specialist regarding all clinical and wellness appointments, as well as recovery-related and 12-step activities
- Agreeing to random urinalysis and/or SoberLink alcohol monitoring throughout the entirety of the program
- Signing pertinent releases to allow communication with key stakeholders (clinical team, referent, family)
