Highlights of Opioid-Specific Programming
Caron’s treatment for opiate-specific drug use programming incorporates proven, medically driven methods for treating opioid addiction. Individual and group therapy allows you to address mental health and emotional issues that stand in the way of your long-term recovery from substance use. Through modalities like dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and cognitive processing therapy (CPT), we work with our patients to rebuild a firm foundation for sustaining their recovery from opioid dependence.
Caron’s Approach to Treating Opioid Use Disorder includes:
- Comprehensive medical screenings and psychological assessments.
- Medical detoxification services in our state-of-the-art medical center.
- Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) to provide relief from symptoms.
- Holistic therapies, ranging from mindfulness meditation and yoga to fitness activities and nutritional consultation.
- Spiritual support.
- The use of technology to assess, measure, monitor, and identify common physical and mental opioid relapse indicators so we can intervene immediately.
With more than 65 years of history treating substance use disorder and process addictions, Caron doesn’t just provide treatment services and recovery support -- we help you build the foundation for Recovery For Life. Our inpatient and outpatient treatment facilities, accredited medical staff, and behavioral health experts make us a top-tier treatment authority.
The cornerstones of our treatment centers and addiction treatment programs are clinical excellence and uncompromising patient-centered care. That's why we provide every patient with lifetime support. Substance use disorder is a chronic treatable brain disease that requires a long-term management plan.
At Caron, our treatment providers believe it is critical for the family to be part of their loved one’s treatment process. Our family programming is designed to provide family members with the information they need to better understand substance use disorders, mental health disorders, and how best to support their loved ones in their recovery. The program enables the whole family to recover and move forward in ways that lead to optimal emotional health for everyone.
Medically Driven Treatment
Opioids disrupt normal brain functioning, leading to withdrawal symptoms like anxiety, sleeplessness, cramping, and sweating. Through medication-assisted treatment (MAT), we provide relief from overwhelming withdrawal symptoms and relief from the intense cravings that come with opioid addiction.
Caron uses a range of MAT options that are recommended based upon an individual's needs. MAT may include either Naltrexone (Vivitrol) or Buprenorphine (Suboxone). Caron offers a sophisticated MAT approach that is led by both a full-time, on-staff medical director and a board-certified staff physician. They work as an interdisciplinary team to carefully review your medical history and recovery goals to determine the most appropriate and beneficial medication for you.
