Highlights of Caron Ocean Drive in Florida

Ocean Drive's robust, innovative treatment for co-occurring substance use and mental health disorders and our ongoing support transforms the lives of our patients and families. The highly personalized reparative psychotherapeutic program enables patients to fully address their unique issues with others who share similar life experiences.

Our in-house, board-certified psychiatrist, neuropsychologist, addiction medicine physician, and clinicians use evidence-based therapies to treat the most complex presenting issues including personality disorders and trauma. Those therapies include neurofeedback, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), cognitive processing therapy (CPT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR).

Our clinical philosophy emphasizes an approach that leads to lasting change.

Each patient is assigned a primary therapist and a family therapist. Patients and family members participate in both individual counseling and group therapy—including experiential therapy, specialty treatment groups, and couples and family counseling. This balanced curriculum addresses the root causes of substance use disorder and the patients’ problematic ways of thinking that have not served them well in their lives and relationships. Our comprehensive attention to deep-seated issues—such as trauma, unresolved grief and loss, attachment issues, and communication difficulties—is key to creating lasting change.

In collaboration with the patient, the clinical team develops individualized treatment plans. The plan is based on information gained from the patient, along with comprehensive evaluations and assessments administered upon arrival and during the patient’s stay at Ocean Drive. Treatment plans include these components as needed:

Therapeutic Modalities

  • Group therapies, including experiential, process, and trauma-specific groups.
  • Gender-specific groups, as needed.
  • Complementary therapies, including massage, breathwork, yoga, acupuncture, and reflexology.
  • Neurofeedback, a noninvasive therapeutic intervention that is recommended as appropriate to reduce cravings and compulsions; reinforce recovery; help manage moods and emotions; process anxiety; improve sleep; and develop new, healthy behaviors that assist in relapse prevention.

Support for the Mind, Body, and Spirit

  • Spiritual support and meditation.
  • Fitness and recreation, personal training sessions, and access to fitness center and in-home equipment.
  • Executive coaching for patients who are considering life transitions and would like to explore new interests or reignite existing passions.
  • Consultations with a nutritionist when clinically indicated to develop customized meal plans and address eating behaviors.

Creative interventions accommodate patients’ clinical and personal needs.

More than any other high-end treatment center, we adapt care to patients’ needs and preferences whenever it’s possible and clinically beneficial by:

  • Allowing the use of laptops and cell phones for work and other needs.
  • Using HIPAA-compliant video conferencing.
  • Coordinating community outings, like trips to concerts, movies, and local restaurants.
  • Recommending brief visits home so that patients can apply what they’ve learned in treatment and then process the visit with their clinical team in order to identify gaps to be filled in and additional skills needed for a successful life in recovery.

We incorporate the whole family.

Recognizing the impact of addiction on both the individual and the family, the clinical team integrates the family into the treatment process, with the patient’s permission and collaboration in identifying family members to be included.

  • Innovative Residential Family Program: Designed to reset relationships and strengthen the family bond by addressing the clinical concerns of each family member and dysfunction in the family system. For the duration of the Residential Family Program, a family member identified by the patient and family therapist lives with the patient so they can work together to improve their relationship. The program provides the clinical team the opportunity to better understand the relationship, highlight concerns in real time, and address the issues fueling challenges in the relationship.
  • Counseling: A dedicated family therapist with extensive experience in family systems treatment provides counseling in person, by phone, or videoconference. The therapist facilitates the patient and family in recalibrating their family system so that it is healthy and functions well for everyone.
  • Family Workshop: Families and patients participate in transformative clinical work through individual, group, and couples counseling.
  • Clinical Impact Visits: Family members, professional colleagues, friends, participate in groups and/or family sessions with pt during their one or two day visit.

Our commitment and care for alumni lasts a lifetime.

Evidence-based research shows that long-term recovery is accomplished best with structured support that encourages accountability, builds self-esteem, and nurtures the family system.

We work with the patient to create a customized continuing care plan that incorporates structure, routine, and accountability. The treatment team, in collaboration with the referring professional and the patient, designs a plan for a comprehensive home recovery network to support a fulfilling life in recovery. Continuing care plans are ongoing.

For patients with an addiction to alcohol, we may advise the use of Soberlink to ensure accountability. This remote sobriety-monitoring program prompts patients via text message to take breathalyzer tests and sends results directly to their treatment team. Additional support is also available through My First Year of Recovery Program.

Ocean Drive’s doors are always open for ongoing care and support. The deep and lasting bonds that form among patients during treatment also provides alumni with supportive friendships throughout their lives in recovery.
