Highlights of Caron Florida Mental Health Program

Many factors contribute to mental health concerns. Twenty percent of U.S. adults experience mental health issues and for one in 20, the condition can be seriously debilitating, according to the National Alliance on Mental Illness.

The COVID-19 pandemic triggered a 25% increase in rates of anxiety and depression. More than ever, people are struggling with emotional pain, overwhelming stress, and loss of social connection. These struggles can impair an individual’s ability to achieve satisfaction, resilience, and peace of mind.

We Understand.

If you are one of those people struggling with a mental health concern, Caron offers holistic, evidence-based, supportive therapies and life skill tools to guide you in effective ways to manage symptoms, regain your enthusiasm, and focus on living the life you want. The program’s intimate and peaceful environment allows space for you to concentrate on therapeutic work and restore your well-being.

We Care.

For nearly 70 years, Caron Treatment Centers has treated individuals with co-occurring substance use and mental health issues. The Caron difference has always been the delivery of a person-centered integrative model of care bringing together expertise, cutting-edge research, and available science from the fields of neuroscience, psychiatry, psychopharmacology, and psychology.

What We Treat

Caron’s program treats young adults and adults who are dealing with:

  • ADHD
  • Anger management
  • Anxiety
  • Bipolar disorders
  • Depressive disorders
  • Dual diagnosis
  • Obsessive compulsive disorder
  • Personality disorders
  • Thought disorders
  • Trauma

Our Approach

With a longer length of stay and a program limited to 10 patients or fewer, patients have the space and support to wholly engage in the therapies and education that will help them manage challenges and circumstances that have contributed to their mental health issues.

Initial Assessments

With a full picture of their mental and physical health, patients have a better understanding of why they feel the way they do. The assessments also ensure that patients are able to participate fully in the program and are not actively suicidal or self-injurious. They include:

  • Brain mapping
  • Lab tests
  • Medical history
  • Pharmacogenomic testing (how genes affect a person's response to drugs) may be recommended
  • Physical
  • Psychiatric evaluations
  • Psychological and neuropsychological screening

Program Components

Individual and group therapy are the foundation of our clinical programming. Individualized treatment meets each patient’s needs and strengths and may include these evidence-based therapies:

  • Cognitive behavior therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectic behavioral therapy (DBT)
  • Eye movement and desensitization reprocessing (EMDR)
  • Medication-assisted treatment (MAT)
  • Psychopharmacology (the use of medications in treating mental disorders)
  • Safe & Sound Protocol (SSP)

Complementary therapies are also incorporated into treatment, which may include these and other similar activities:

  • Adventure therapy
  • Art
  • Horticulture
  • Music
  • Yoga

Psychological assessment services may also be recommended. These additional services are not included in the cost of treatment and are paid for by the patient or family. Depending upon a patient’s needs, they may include comprehensive evaluation of:

  • Academic achievement
  • Emotional, social, and personality functioning
  • Neuropsychological functioning

Neurocognitive services are included in a patient’s treatment plan as indicated and may include:

  • Alpha-stim electrotherapy
  • Galvanic skin response
  • Additional neurocognitive services, such as neurofeedback, as recommended

Spiritual Support

  • Individual counseling sessions are available with a faith leader of the patient’s choice—rabbi, priest, minister, or other spiritual guide.
  • Any faith-based needs patients have, such as keeping kosher or special dietary needs, will be accommodated.

Life Skills Training

  • Strengths-based experiential training foster patients’ confidence and strengthen the coping skills that will aid them in their post-treatment lives.
  • The College Success Program helps patients identify learning strengths/weaknesses, explore career paths, and set and pursue educational goals.
  • The Career Services Program supports patients in setting employment and career objectives and finding employment.

Family Support and Strengthening

Core to Caron’s treatment philosophy, family therapy is embedded into each patient’s plan. Family therapists identify and address relationship and environmental factors affecting family functioning. Weekly family planning and therapy sessions are designed to promote the highest possible positive outcomes for the patient and the family as a whole.

Our full-time interdisciplinary, trauma-informed team is highly credentialed and experienced in their fields.

Our team of dedicated, licensed master’s and doctoral-level clinicians work with each patient and their family to determine what they want and need for their lives.


In consultation with the patient and family, the clinical team creates an aftercare plan geared to integrate the patient back into their community, ready to live a healthy, engaged, and resilient life. As needed, aftercare plans include recommendations for:

  • Outpatient programs
  • Medication management
  • Therapeutic support
  • Community support/recovery groups like NAMI Connection groups, Mental Health Anonymous, and others targeted to specific diagnoses/issues
  • Case management
  • Vocational/academic support
